Note:   From "The Hickmans", by Donald Roger Hickman (http://homepages.rootsweb.com/~fegley/fam/TheHickmans-6.html):
  So the young family of Solomon [Hickman], Louisa [his wife] and 1 1/2 year old William Henry, along with Louis'a parents [Robert Evans and Margaret Warinner] and their other seven children set out of Iowa in the early spring of 1849. They crossed the state of Illinois in their wagons until they reached the Mississippi river, "The Father of All Waters" as the Indians called it. ... They still had a hundred miles to go to even reach John [Evans] 's place in Wapello County. Covered wagons without number streamed across the prairie from the east. AFter stopping at John's where they stayed a short while, they were eager to push on to the west in order to find some good land. The futher west they went, the fewer cabins and farms they saw. They stopped at a point on the north side of the Chariton river running northwest to southeast, where on 24 June 1849 Solomon paid the government $200 for 160 acres in Lucas County. Louisa's father Robert did the same for Monroe County land that was just on the other side of the county border. Today part of his former property is submerged in the form of Lake Rathbun... Seen today, the property is no longer farmed and appears as though it never was. Wildlife such as turkeys and other small animals can be found in the adjoining woods. It is in a beautiful lakefront location with a georgeous view.
