I believe Harriett is daughter of Jacob Light and Sarah Leech. The following is all I have on Eben. Haven't really researched him. Steve Leech has alot of info on Leech and Jacob Light. Steve Leech, 2003: Let me know if you're interested in keeping in contact. We might be able to find something together. I've seen the LaBoon name but can't remember where. Where did you find it.
