    1. [IADELAWA] IAGenWeb Needs You!
    2. Oregon Rain
    3. MUSTER ROLL = a soft pastry covered with Grey Poupon. If you know better, you probably already know what the terms, Vital Record, Primary Document, and Mortality Schedule mean. Maybe you’ve thought of sharing your love of genealogy with others, but don’t necessarily want to become a professional researcher.  Here is an excellent alternative – become an IAGenWeb County Coordinator! If you have: (1) computer skills, web page editing (or the desire to learn), (2) a couple of spare hours a week for volunteering, (3) a desire to give people free access to genealogical information, please read our Volunteer Primer at http://iagenweb.org/state/primer.htm We have great county websites waiting for you to adopt as your own: Jackson ** Carroll ** Lee ** Mahaska ** Sac ** Poweshiek ** Ida ** Greene ** Emmet ** Jones ** Lyon ** Pottawattamie ** Scott ** Adams Check out other County Projects at http://iagenweb.org/  for a variety of information provided by other County Coordinators. When you’ve picked a county from the above list that you’d like to coordinate, send us an email <[email protected]> We know from experience, it’s fun to be a County Coordinator!

    3. Do you contribute to the IAGenWeb project? Do you photograph cemeteries and upload photos to the Iowa Gravestone Photo Project? Do you transcribe military records, histories, birth indexes, etc., and submit to individual county coordinators? Do you transcribe and add obituaries, biographies and/or documents to the county message boards? If you answer yes to any of these, you already have the potential to be a great county coordinator. Having a desire to share with others about their family history is the most important aspect of the position. Having a knowledge of web page editing or the true desire to learn to use a web editor or hand code, is the second most important.

    1. [IADELAWA] JOHNSTON Family Photographs
    2. Shelley Cardiel
    3. I've "rescued" a group of photographs belonging to the JOHNSTON Family including two of J. F. JOHNSTON taken in Manchester Iowa with one indicating his wife's name on the back as well. She was Ellen C. JOHNSTON. The others are of Mildred JOHNSTON their daughter, Ella JOHNSTON a daughter, and then an E. JOHNSTON from Janesville, Wisconsin. Based on limited research and thanks to the assistance of a JOHNSTON Family Researcher I have gathered the following details regarding this family: John Franklin JOHNSTON was b. 1854 in Delaware Township, Delaware Co. IA (son of David Irving JOHNSTON and Louise ROE) and died 1892 in Delaware Co. IA and is buried in the Oakland Cemetery in Manchester, IA. His wife Martha Ellen COOLEY (dau. Of Ward Clark COOLEY and Sally W. PRIEST) was b. 25 Jan 1849 in Lisbon Township, Grafton Co. NH and died in 1930 in Manchester, IA and is also buried in the Oakland Cemetery in Manchester, IA. The couple had 4 children including, Ethel; Mildred; Genevieve; and Ellen JOHNSTON all born in Manchester, IA between 1877 and 1887. Mildred J. JOHNSTON was b. 1881 to parents John Franklin JOHNSTON (1854-1892) and Ellen COOLEY (1849-1930). Mildred married John ROTHFORK (b. 30 Oct 1882 in Calumet Co. WI-d. May 1977 in Moscow, ID) in Manchester, IA on 12 Dec 1906. The couple moved to Moscow, ID in 1942 and she died in 1968 and is buried in the Moscow Cemetery in Moscow, ID. Ellen JOHNSTON was b. 30 Sept 1887 in Manchester, IA to parents John Franklin JOHNSTON (1854-1892) and Ellen COOLEY (1849-1930). Ellen died 27 Dec 1954 in Los Angeles, CA and is buried in the Rose Hills Memorial Park in Whittier, CA. Census records provide the following details: 1900 census of Manchester, IA: Ellen JOHNSTON, age 57, born Jan 1849, a widow, 4 children/3 living, born NH, parents born NH, a Capitalist Ethel JOHNSTON, dau, age 22, born Nov 1877, born IA, parents born IA/NH, a School Teacher Mildred JOHNSTON, dau, age 19, born May 1881, born IA, parents born IA/NH, a School Teacher Ellen JOHNSTON, dau, age 12, born Sept 1887, born IA, parents born IA/NH, at School I am hoping to locate someone from this JOHNSTON Family so that the group of photographs can be returned to this family. If you are a member of this family, or you know someone who might be, please contact me. Thanks, Shelley
