I'm sorry to hear about your hospital stay; I hope you are well on the road to recovery now.

I am home for 24 hrs only and thought I would update you on my findings in Iowa. I found Thomas Feagins in the 1852 and 1853 Warren County census. In 1852 he was enumerated in Washington Township; his household consisted of 2 males and 1 female. In 1853 we find him in Greenfield township; one male and two females in residence. Unfortunately, the 1856 Iowa state census for Warren County no longer exists.

In 1885 we have James Feagins living in Pleasantville, Marion County, IA, age 33, occupation stock dealer; born in Warren County, IA. He is enumerated with Louisa C., age 27, born in Warren Co., and Chase, age 1, born in Marion Co. Curiously, there is no mention of Arthur Feagins or Sarah Feagins. I am assuming Sarah may have been dead by then. I looked up Margaret Feagins and Samuel Leib, living in Marion Co. at that time, but the page was illegible. I will have to look that page up at the Sutro Library when I return from my sabbatical.

In 1895, James is in Woodbine, Harrison Co., IA. He is now 40 yrs. old; Louisa is 38, Chase is 11, and Fred is 2. Again, no mention of Arthur.

In 1900 James is found in Boyer Township, Woodbine city, Harrison Co., IA, with the same family configuration. This is the last record of them I found in Iowa.

I believe that Sarah may be buried with Thomas and the children. The cemetery records were destroyed in 1954, so if there was not a headstone, the record was lost. I could not find her in the Polk Co. or Marion Co. cemetery records, and the census records don't show her living with James, et al., in Harrison County.

That is all for now. I am continuing on my sabbatical for another month. Please feel free to e-mail me: I'll keep you posted on anything I find.

Again, I hope all goes well for you.

Kind regards, Eileen
