I grew up at Iona. Played in the cemetary as a kid. Probably shouldn't have, but we did.
The name Betty Stephens does not ring a bell, but until just a few years there were some Stephens living down the road (1/2 mile) from the cemetary. (Nice folks). John Stephens died a three or four years ago, and his wife I think went to live with her kids (I think). I live in Kansas now, so I may not be a lot of help, but my folks still live about 200 yards from the cemetary. I could ask Mom about what she knows.
There is just a collection of houses and a cemetary at Iona now. Heard that at one time years ago, when there was still a town, there was a gun fight in main street. Just like in the movies. Stood in the street and shot at each other until one fell. Don't know if it is true, but that is what I was told.
Mom and Dad have a map of the old town site. Not much to look at, and not much detail. She might know some of the old folks, (not that mom is old), that could answer any questions you might have.
I will help if I can.
