Sorry for the trouble, but some kook sabotaged my e-mail subscriptions to
the Rootsweb.com mailing lists. I can still receive postings to my
USER683614(a)AOL.COM box, or here. I also have about a dozen screen names with
two other Internet providers, so if those of you who I am helping will e-mail
me privately, I'll give them to you. I hope this problem will resolve itself.

I can't help you with your lost folks but I would like to hear from
you if you can furnish information on any COVEY. I know very little
about the ones that moved to the west coast.

Hello to the Great State of Iowa,
I am searching for any information anyone can provide me with regard to
the surname TARRANT and FEDEREN.
Both families lived in various parts of the state, but spent quite a bit
of time in the Minneapolis area. I am searching for PHILIP FEDEREN (1883) and
his wife EDITH FEDEREN (1884) and their two children FABIOLA TARRANT (1897)
and CECILE TARRANT (1893). They were last known to be in the Twin Cities area
in 1944, but their descendants could be anywhere by now.
They were relatives of GEORGE A. SHANNON AND ISABELLA (McDonald) SHANNON
of Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin, and their son ROBERT D. SHANNON, who was last
known around 1942-44 to be living in Spencer, Iowa. Robert's wife was named
JESSE and his children were ANNABELLE and GEORGE, also of Chippewa Falls, WI.
Any information regarding these families or their descendants would be

I am new to the list and searching for David ROBERTS, born abt 1789.
David ROBERTS died 24 Feb 1877 at Mahaska County, near Oscaloosa, Iowa. He
was married to Ann NICHOLAS at Butler County, Ohio. Ann Nicholas ROBERTS
died at Ohio in 1844. David may have remarried.
Children, Martha and James ROBERTS died at Iowa and son, David ROBERTS was
living at Miami, OK in 1915. They also had a daughter named Mary.
Not much information, but can someone give me a clue where I might obtain a
death cert. for David ROBERTS. Better still, does anyone recognize this
Is there anyone who has any datas about SEEBERGER, SEBERGER, SEBURGER and variations?
Any help is appreciated to find all family members who imigrated from Germany, Switzerland or Austria.
Because I am researching all the different families, all mosaic pieces about all families are welcome.

Hello to all on the Poweshiek, Mahaska, and Wapello county lists!
I'm looking for any information that I can add to an old family story. My
great-grandfather Filmore Garner took a boatload of cattle to Scotland in
1900 (with a supposed side trip to the Paris Exposition and a run-in with
remnants of the Galveston Hurricane). The Oskaloosa Herald article below
confirms the story, but I'd like to find more.
He was said to have been hired for the trip by the Ewart Brothers. Who are
they and where can I find more on them? I'm hoping, of course, that they
kept good records, and that someone may still have those records. Wouldn't
it be great to know the name of the ship? Or the captain?
Was the transport of cattle from Iowa to Europe a common practice. Seems
risky, even in the early part of this century. Was the profit so great to
negate the risks?
Are there other aspects to this journey that I'm missing? Elements that
would not occur to a city boy like myself?

Home From Scotland
Filmore Garner Home from a Business Trip to the British Isles.
Filmore Garner, of near Wright, is just home from Glasgow, Scotland, where
he went with a consignment of 650 Mahaska and Wapello county cattle.
The gentleman states that on the homeward journey within about 100 miles of
the coast of Labrador their vessel ran into the great storm that caused so
much damage on the Newfoundland coast and wasted the Texas coast. He says
the storm lasted three days and during the last seven hours it was something
terrible. He had never seen anything like it and never cares to again. The
storm was predicted on board the boat by the captain, who did not like the
action of his barometer and other instruments.
In telling of the sale of the cattle that were taken to the market of the
city of Glasgow, Mr. Garner stated that the trip was highly satisfactory.
The stock was transported in a way that left no room for complaint and the
sale realized profits to the owners that was satisfactory to all. The cattle
belonged to a number of breeders and raisers in Mahaska and Wapello counties
and Mr. Garner was sent in charge of them. It is very likely that other
shipments will be made.
I don't know if anyone know anything about these subjects or not. I've
search some in the Oskaloosa library and the Poweshiek Historical Society,
but haven't found much. Any tips would be appreciated.
Thanks for your time. I love this story, if for no other reason than it
seems like an adventure that's out of character for a member of my family.
