Thank you for taking time out of your research trip to answer my query. I apologize for being slow in response to you but I found myself in the hospital for a couple of days….had a minor heart attack (if there is such a thing!) and had to have four partial blockages fixed….but thanks to the doctors, I am feeling fine now.

In my query, I incorrectly spelled “Chase” as “Chas”. Although wrong, I believe that I was totally consistent and misspelled it every time I used it!!!

I also failed to include the information that Fred (whose middle initial is E.) Feagins was given a marriage license in Box Butte Co., NE to marry Mabel B. Mosher in 1916. I am not sure where they were actually married but it was probably Alliance.

James was a partner in the L. E. Roberts Commission Co. a livestock trading company located in Omaha, NE. He moved his headquarters from Omaha to western Nebraska in 1894 but did not move his family from Iowa until either 1906 or 1907 (I have conflicting dates). James and Louisa resided at (looks like ‘517’ ) Cheyenne Ave. in Alliance, Box Butte, NE according to the 1910 census. Fred, 17, was living with them at that time. On the 1920 census, Fred had moved out, but Chase and Louisa had moved in with the parents-----and about this time Chase and James formed a cattle trading company called “Feagins and Son”----guess they had yoyo kids in the old days, too!

I do not think that Chase had any children but I am quite sure that Fred did but have not been able to find any reference to them. Since he moved to Iowa after retirement, they have lived there.

I hope these corrections and additional tidbits are of help to you.

Again, I thank you for your help.

Art Feagins
