This photo was sent to me by a friend in the Jasper/Polk Counties, Iowa area. It’s pretty exciting because this photo, along with the other she sent, are labeled! I have sent out a few messages to descendants and I am waiting to hear back!
Burrell Buster Fagen was born on June 18, 1912 in Keota, Keokuk County, Iowa to parents Walter Loren Fagen and Mabel Winnifred Rowe. He married Kathryn Dress and they had two sons. Burrell passed away on April 22, 1996 in Cedar Rapids.
While researching Burrell I discovered that he was proceeded in death by one son, Jim Fagen. I am unable to determine when or where Jim died. However, following Burrell’s death on April 22, his wife Kathryn passed on August 20, 1996; and his other son Ed died in a car accident on November 29, 1996.
