Tom Tabor: Ancestors

The Tabor side immigrated through Iowa...northwest, Sioux Rapids, etc...maybe Spenser...and eventually in the Garretson area of South Dakota. Issac was preaching in Garretson and Floyd was a local boy and met Frances (Issac's daughter), my mom, as young adults. Floyd had been in WWI and came back to Garretson and married Frances. He got a 2 yr pharmacy degree from SDSU then got a job in Sioux Falls. Then I was born and the family moved to Huron adn Ted was born and the family moved to Deadwood when I was 4 or 5. I went to kindergarten there and we stayed until I was 9. Then we moved to Madison and rented a house for years.
