Labor Day, everyone's last 'vacation' time and BBQ's. What an awesome time of the year!   And a great time for that end of summer family reunion and to think about a fun interesting family history project to do during the winter!   The perfect project to consider is that of a 'County Coordinator' CC for one of IAGenWeb's orphan counties!  We have a wonderful group of counties that are in need of a county coordinator. A new coordinator is needed for JONES, JACKSON, SAC, IDA, CARROLL, GREENE, LYON, ADAMS, POTTAWATTAMIE, EMMET, & MAHASKA counties.

    1. ([IADELAWA])Manchester newspaper scans needed
    2. Robert Pfaff
    3. Good morning- I am in need of three obituaries from the Manchester Press from dates apparently not archived online. I do have transcriptions written by Susan Rezek, but for genealogical purposes, photocopies (or preferably PDF files) of the entire page and an inset of the obit, if needed, is preferred. If anyone can get these (I believe the Manchester Library has them), I would be most appreciative. I am also happy to reimburse copying costs. The three obituaries I want are: 1.”Death of Mrs. L.A. Benson,” Lucy A [nee Clark] Knight Benson, Manchester Press, 26 February 1903. 2. “Dropped Dead,” Theodore Holmes, Manchester Press, 15 February 1900. 3. “Died,” Willis R. Knight, 21 March 1895. (the transcription on this one is very short, suggesting a more complete obit may have been printed in a subsequent issue of the paper. If so, I would appreciate the follow-up piece, as well.) Thank you in advance. Rob Rob Pfaff 555 W Emmet Ave Rensselaer, Indiana 47978 home (219) 866-8297 cell (219) 577-3179 email [email protected] <mailto:[email protected]> Ya, it's a weird name but my ancestors gave it to me So, it's pronounced paf and rhymes with laugh.

    1. ([IADELAWA])DETERING - STRUNK Family Photographs
    2. Shelley Cardiel
    3. I've "rescued" a group of old photographs belonging to the DETERING and STRUNK Families. The group of 9 photographs include photographs of the following individuals: . John DETERING - Vancouver, WA, 20's or 30's in uniform, dated 1908 and mailed to Mrs. Emma SCHLICHTING in Brush Prairie, WA . Lana DETERING and Floyd - early 1900's taken at the Emery Studio, no location, Lana in her 20's and Floyd just an infant . Lana and Elsie STRUNK - Sisters, Xmas 1903, taken at the Hayes & Hayes Studio in Portland, OR . Mamie and Will STRUNK - no studio or location, early 1900's, couple in 20's . Kate DEEGAN and Lana STRUNK - taken at Republic, WA 2 Mar 1901, in their 20's . Loney & Hattie STRUNK - no studio or location, 1890's or early 1900's, couple in their 20's "to Emma" . Elda and David STRUNK - Married 5 Aug 1908 (two copies of this photograph) one on postcard mailed to Mrs. Ida SHERMAN in Edgewood, IA . Tom STRUNK Family - taken by Shaffer Studio in Edgewood, IA, family in front of cabin type home, parents with 7 children pictured Based on limited research I know the following regarding this family: Lana May STRUNK was b. Aug 1879 or 1880 in Kansas City, KS to parents Thomas Jefferson STRUNK (1838-1900) and Juliaetta or Juliette or Julie Etta or Julia Etta or Juliett or Julie EASTMAN or EASTON (1850-1911). Lana was one of 12 children born to this couple including, Anna or Annie; William Mervin; Lorenzo Dow; Henry; Alfred Hillman; Lana; Albert D.; Emma A. or R.; David Francis; Edwin Milo or Allen; Thomas Jefferson; and Elsa or Elsie or Elsia Vera STRUNK, all born between 1867 and 1890. Lana married John Wilhelm DETERING (b. 17 Oct 1878 in Freelinville, IN-d. 21 Jun 1949 in Chelan, WA- son of Henry Herman DETERING and Caroline M. "Cary" or "Carrie" DROSTEY or DROSTE) and together they had 5 children including, Floyd John Henry; Vera Marie; Dorris; Victor Henry; and Ruth DETERING, all born between 1906 and 1919. Lana died 20 Jan 1960 in Vancouver, WA and is buried in the Fishers Cemetery in Vancouver, WA. Lana's husband John is also buried in the same cemetery along with their daughter Ruth D. DETERING OVERBAY (1919-1983). Her son Floyd was b. 11 Jan 1906 in Washington State and went on to marry Lois C. MITCHELL (1907-1991)and they had 4 children. Floyd died 3 Dec 1982 in Manson, WA. Lana's son Victor Henry DETERING was b. in 1915 and died 11 May 1918 in Vancouver, WA when he was just a few years old. Their daughter Vera DETERING b. 1908 also died when she was just a few years old on 8 Aug 1911 in Clarke Co., WA. John W. DETERING was living in Vancouver, WA at 1570 Grant Street in 1918 when he was drafted noting his occupation as a Carpenter working for the Standifer Co. John W. DETERING was still living in Vancouver, WA when he was registered for the draft in 1942 listing his employer as the Vancouver School Board and his next of kin as his wife Lana May DETERING of 703 W. 15th Street in Vancouver, WA. I'm hoping to locate someone from this family so that this wonderful group of old photographs can be returned to the care of family. If you are a member of this family, or you know someone who might be, please contact me. Thanks, Shelley

    2. dusters34
    3. The Fourth of July holiday is almost here! For most of us, that means a cookout, fireworks and another day or two that we don’t have to go to work. However, what this holiday is really about is that this day commemorates our independence from Great Britain back in 1776. Exercise your independence this year by becoming an IAGenWeb county coordinator .and experience the satisfaction of bringing IAGenWeb to appreciative genealogists everywhere. New coordinators are needed for JONES, JACKSON, SAC, IDA, CARROLL, GREENE, LYON, ADAMS, POTTAWATTAMIE, EMMET, & MAHASKA counties. For more information contact the Welcome Hosts at [email protected] .
