Bio:

Obituary from Fremont Gazette May 6, 1915: Wallace B. Higgason was born in Henderson County, Illinois Feb. 10, 1859, and died at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Ina Allen of Marietta, Minn., aged 56 years, 2 months and 6 days. At the age of 16 he came to Iowa with his parents and settled near Fremont. On Oct. 13, 1881, he was married to Josie Dinsmore, who passed away December 20, 1901. To this union were born three daughters and two sons, Mrs. Cressy Allen, Marietta, Minn.; Mrs. Jas. Ruxton, Zearing Iowa; Miss Hazel Higgason, Sioux Falls, S.D. Walter B., Union, Iowa; and William D., Des Moines, all of whom survive him. Of his father's family he is survived by three, Mrs. Eliza Garner, Oskaloosa; Mrs. Lizzie Howard, Axtell, Mo.; and Gus Higgason, Boise City, Idaho. He was converted in the Billy Sunday* meetings. He has been a great sufferer from the two diseases, cancer and tuberculosis, but when the final summons came to him he passed away quietly and peacefully into the new life. The funeral services were conducted at Marietta and the body was accompanied to Fremont by Mr. and Mrs. Allen, Mrs. Ruxton, Walter and William Higgason, Mr. and Mrs. Phil Garner and Mrs. Lizzie Howard. A brief service was conducted by Rev. Williams at the cemetery Saturday afternoon.
