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
A great URL to use when desiring info on WHERE a place is located is the
U.S. Geological Survey site at:
You merely have to fill in the form with what you desire to find.
There are drop-down menus for some of the items to complete for the
search. I filled in what you were looking for:
Feature Name: Walker
County Name: Johnson
State or Territory: Iowa
Feature Type: cemetery
Next click on "send query" and get a match (if it's in their database).
Walker Cemetery is there.
Follow down the page to the label "Show Feature Location." When you
click on that label, you'll get two maps. One that shows where the
cemetery is in the U.S. and a second closeup map. You can zoom in and
out on the second map to see exactly where the cemetery is in relation
to other places.
By using this site, I've found some places that I couldn't find any
other way! Try it and have fun!

You might know that the newspaper above was published between 1882 and about 1971 in Breda, IA and later in Wall Lake, IA.
Now I'm looking for issues of this newspaper between 1916 and 1971 and clippings of obituaries. I would appreciate your answer if you have those items.
The clippings can be send by Email (frisian(a)netins.net) or snail mail to my address (P. O. Box 269, Titonka, Iowa 50480-0269). In return I would send you a translation of the obituary/obituaries.
Thank you very much in advance for your help.
Thanks for bringing our attention to this new info. I see Henry and Eva
McCune are listed. Eva connects to our family. Anyone researching this

Thanks so much to the people who labored on this project some
years ago. And many many thanks to the webmaster, Harvey Henry,
for working so hard to make it usable and get it on the site.

You will find other census' for Johnson County are
beginning to be transcribed.
Take a look and please consider volunteering for this
super project. Maybe you just have a special interest in
a particular township in Johnson Co. Just even doing
one or two townships in a census year would help.
Just think how much would get done if 40 or 50 people just
each took on one township in Johnson Co. in different
No, I do not run the project nor am I associated with the website
