Many of the original records of church units are in the Church History Library in Salt Lake City. Many of the membership records covering these units from the date of their creation to about 1948 have been microfilmed and are available at the Family History Library in Salt Lake City or at its Family History Centers.  Records of the Iona Ward (1886-1948) are in this microfilmed records.

History[edit | edit source]

Settlers came from Utah in 1883 and settled at different places along Sand Creek. Joseph Smith Mulliner, C.J. Owens and others built houses. They began fencing the land and made water ditches. When the Eagle Rock and Willow Creek Canal Company was organized most of them subscribed for stock in the company and went to work in earnest to construct a canal to convey the water from Snake river into the natural channel of Willow Creek. The total population of the Iona Precinct was 824 in 1930.
