    1. ([IASTORY])Mailing lists on RootsWeb will be disabled in March 2020
    2. Aaron Hill
    3. I am not happy about this. I received the following message this morning. Please protest this short-sighted move, if you want. Perhaps if they hear from enough us, Ancestry will reverse course. To comment on this betrayal of the genealogical community and the values behind RootsWeb, send your message to rwmailinglists@ancestry.com or contact Ancestry via 1-800-615-6560. For other methods, such as mail, visit https://www.ancestry.com/corporate/contact-us. Aaron J. Hill aaronjhill.wordpress.com From RootsWeb Administration <rwmailinglists@ancestry.com> Tue 1/7/2020 9:36 AM Beginning March 2nd, 2020 the Mailing Lists functionality on RootsWeb will be discontinued. Users will no longer be able to send outgoing emails or accept incoming emails. Additionally, administration tools will no longer be available to list administrators and mailing lists will be put into an archival state. Administrators may save the emails in their list prior to March 2nd. After that, mailing list archives will remain available and searchable on RootsWeb. As an alternative to RootsWeb Mailing Lists, Ancestry message boards are a great option to network with others in the genealogy community. Message boards are available for free with an Ancestry registered account. Thank you for being part of the RootsWeb family and contributing to this community.

    1. ([IASTORY]) Roberta “Bertie” Lucille McCoy Parish (1940-2019)
    2. Aaron Hill
    3. Roberta Lucille McCoy Parish, 79, died peacefully while surrounded by family on August 26, 2019. Roberta (“Bertie” to most) was born on March 19, 1940, near Bonaparte, Iowa, to Mark Boley McCoy and Pearl Olga Moore McCoy. She graduated from Keosauqua High School in 1957 and attended Northeast Missouri State University, Iowa State Teacher’s College (UNI), and graduated from Drake University with a degree in Elementary Education. Bertie was preceded in death by her parents; her stepmother, Madeleine Manning Gilchrist McCoy; her brother David McCoy; stepsister Joyce Ann Gilchrist Jack; stepbrother James Gilchrist and niece Gina Jack. She is survived by her husband of nearly 60 years, Don Lavern Parish of Colo, Iowa; daughter, Stephanie (Greg) West of Mount Vernon, Iowa, and her children, Sarah (John) Learned, Kate Bishop, Matthew and Andrew Heck; daughter Deanna Gray of Indianola, Iowa, and her children, Connor and Aric Humphrey; one great grandson, Callum Learned; four step-grandchildren, Ammie (Jeff) Trumpold; Zachary, Alyson, and Jessica West; and two step-great grandsons, James and Charlie Trumpold. Bertie was blessed to come from a large blended family of her own and is also survived by her brother Hugh (Rita) McCoy, her sister Barbara (Larry) Burkett, her stepbrother, Craig (Sue) Gilchrist and 26 nieces and nephews. Bertie was a 3rd and 4th grade teacher for 10 years. Her organizational skills, along with her passion for antiques and collectibles, led her to pursue her next career as an antiques dealer. She leveraged her ongoing quest for “big bad bargains” and her entrepreneurial talent when she established Roberta’s Relics in Mount Vernon in the 1980s. She also was a flea market dealer and enthusiast, later selling from rented spaces in various antique shops in four states at the same time. Bertie collected many things but favored her beloved buttons. More importantly, she collected friends. She never knew a stranger. She was strong in faith, applied the Golden Rule, and always lifted others in prayer. A Celebration of Life will be held in Keosauqua, Iowa, on July 17, 2020, with burial at Harness Cemetery in Mount Sterling, Iowa. Immediately following, there will be a “Bertie Bash” where we hope to share many stories and laughter — and buttons. Memorials can be directed to St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital in honor of close family friend Emily Reimer, via the link www.stjude.org/donate at any time. Cards can be sent in care of Don Parish, PO Box 214, Colo, IA 50056. “Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind.” – Dr. Seuss https://www.ncnewspress.com/obituaries/20190828/roberta-lucille-mccoy-parish Aaron J.

    1. ([IASTORY])LAURENCE or LAWRENCE Family Photograph
    2. Shelley Cardiel
    3. I've "rescued" an old photograph identified as that of Donald Freeman LAURENCE which was taken in the early 1900's when he was just 3 months old and 14lbs. The photograph is addressed on the back to "Uncle James and Aunt Blanche MURPHY of Englewood, KS". Based on limited research and thanks to area researchers I know the following regarding this family: Donald Freeman LAWRENCE was b. 30 Dec 1917 in Ames, IA to parents Carl Edwin or Edward LAWRENCE (1896-1987) and Lucille "Lucy" Ella SMITHSON FINCH (1900-1963). Donald was one of three children born to this couple including, Donald Freeman; Juanita "Ginger" Marie; and Robert Wayne LAWRENCE, all born between 1917 and 1923. Donald married Virginia Birdella or Berdella BALL (1920-1996) and they had three children including Sharon Kay; Joseph "Joe" Richard; and Jan LAWRENCE. Sharon Kay LAWRENCE (1939-2016) married Stephen Charles SAPPER and together they had three children including, Lorraine, Charles, and Valerie SAPPER. Lorraine married Mr. WILLIAMS, Valerie married Mr. LONG and they are all believed to still be living in Ames, IA. Donald died 2 Mar 1963 in Ames, IA and is buried in the Ames Municipal Cemetery in Ames, IA. The Murphy family to who the photograph was given are Richard James MURPHY and his wife Blanche Edith LAWRENCE (b. 2 Apr 1891-d. 24 Feb 1966 buried in the Englewood Cemetery in Englewood, KS - daughter of William Edward "Edgar" LAWRENCE and Jane Elizabeth SPERRY) who lived in Englewood, KS. Blanche's father William and Donald's father Carl were siblings. Richard and Blanche MURPHY had a son James Forrest MURPHY (1918-1979). Census records provide the following details: 1920 census of Englewood, KS: Richard J. MURPHY, age 42, born IL, parents born NY, a Railroad Pumper Blanche E. MURPHY, wife, age 28, born MO, parents born MO James F. MURPHY, son, age 1 year + 6 months, born KS 1930 census of Englewood, KS: Richard J. MURPHY, age 53, married at age 39, born IL, parents born NY, an Odd Jobs Laborer Blanche E. MURPHY, wife, age 38, married at age 25, born MO, parents born MO J. Forest MURPHY, son, age 11, born KS Clara BOHALL, mother-in-law, age 75, a widow, married at age 36, born IL, parents born IL 1940 census of Englewood, KS: James MURPHY, age 63, born IL, a Laborer Blanche MURPHY, wife, age 48, born MO James F. MURPHY, son, age 21, born KS, a Carpenter Laborer I'm hoping to locate someone from the family so that this wonderful old photograph 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

A funeral service will be held at 2 p.m. Tuesday, July 9, 2019 at the Law-Jones Funeral Home, Mt. Carroll, Illinois. Burial will be in Chadwick Cemetery, rural Chadwick, with full Military Rites. Visitation will be held from 12 noon – 2 p.m. Tuesday at the Funeral Home. Online condolences may be left for the family at www.lawjonesfuneralhome.com.

Steve served in the United States Army during Vietnam, receiving the Bronze Star Medal for Heroism. One of his battalion’s trucks carrying ammunition hit a mine and exploded.

His valorous actions were responsible for saving a man’s life.” Steve never told this story. After his military service, Steve settled in Chadwick, Illinois. He began working at Handle Implement in 1971, and remained employed as a mechanic until his retirement from Birkey’s in 2015. He was very knowledgeable in the repair and maintenance of International Harvesters.

We hope you will stop by for a visit to our orphan counties and find one that fits your family and contact our great Welcome Hostess  welcome_to_iagenweb@iagenweb.org  for more information on how you can become a county coordinator.  Our orphan counties are: Adams, Carroll, Emmet, Floyd, Greene, Ida, Jackson, Lyon, Mahaska, Mitchell, Montgomery, Pottawattamie, Poweshiek, Sac and Tama. Merry Christmas to All, Cindy & Karon Welcome Hostess' welcome_to_iagenweb.org@iagenweb.org
