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.
Laguna Hills, CA
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

ranch home, about twenty-five miles northeast of Broadwater, after an
illness of 23 days. A paralytic stroke caused a rapid decline in her
Clarissa J. Petty, which was her maiden name, was born in Mercer
County, Mo., February 25, 1859. Death claimed her at the age of 74
years, eight months and eight days.
She grew to young womanhood in the state of Iowa, in the vicinity of
Lineville, where she was united in marriage with Samuel Hickman October
29, 1879. To this union one daughter was born, Flossie L. Hickman.
Mr. and Mrs. Hickman came to Alliance, Neb., in 1888 and settled on
a homestead six and a half miles southeast of Alliance.
In 1900 they moved into the sandhills section farther south and have
resided on a ranch. They converted the sandy country about their home
into an oasis by planting trees and shrubs and cultivating flowers, and
vegetables, and raising such crops as were profitable for a livestock
country in addition to raising stock. strangers and friends alike were
always welcome at this ranch home. One more of earth's revered
homemakers has passed on to the mansion in her Father's house, but her
gracious sprit will be long remembered by those who knew her. we who are
left are rich in sweet memories of the departed.
She was a member of the Methodist Church South, in Iowa, and after
coming to western Nebraska was affiliated with the Methodist Episcopal
Church in Alliance.
Mrs. Hickman was one of the first teachers in Box Butte County,
having served two years as the first teacher of a district seven miles
southwest of Alliance. she also taught a pioneer school east of there
for two years. The beginning of her service as a school teacher began in

misprinted in paper. Rearranged to make sense.] At the close of the
sermon, H. A. Lotspeich, son-in-law of Mrs. Hickman, and her three
grandsons Kenneth, Quinn and Alva Lotspeich, sang "Rock of Ages."
Interment was in the Alliance cemetery beside the body of her
sister, Viola, the late Mrs. W. B. Young. Rev. Allen Keith, Methodist
minister of Alliance, was in charge of brief burial services. At the
