Not many folks can learn about their family’s genealogy at a local museum.

Edward H. Funston III, a grandnephew of Iola’s Maj. Gen. Frederick Funston, came to Iola Wednesday to research his family’s history on display at the Allen County Historical Society’s museum complex. Funston’s childhood home and the museum’s visitor’s center are replete with Funston memorabilia and historical facts.

Funston, age 86 and of Topeka, came with his cousin, Richard Ross.
