The Gideon's organization may have been the Gideon International that was established in 1899 and served as an extended missionary arm of the church and was a Christian business and professional men's association. The primary function of The Gideons were to place and distribute Bibles and New Testaments in the human traffic lanes and streams of national life. Gideons as laymen, would stand shoulder to shoulder as "missionaries" of local churches and their pastors in going to the four corners of the world to win others for the Lord Jesus Christ.

     In a letter from the Chaplain at the Veteran Association of the Pennsylvania Railroad, Fred is described as a christian gentleman of the finest texture and not ashamed of his manly example of straight forwardness and clean living.

     Cora Ione Driscal was also known as Iona Driscal.

     Cora Ione Driscal was born on 20 April 1906 in Grand Rapids, Kent County, Michigan.1 She was the daughter of Fred E. Driscal and Clarissa Sylvia Foote.2,3,1 Cora Ione Driscal survived the death of her mother, Clarissa Sylvia Foote, who died on 8 May 1906 in Grand Rapids, Kent County, Michigan, less than a month after she was born. Cora Ione Driscal witnessed the marriage of Fred E. Driscal and Myrtie Emma Aylworth on 28 July 1908 in Grand Rapids, Kent County, Michigan.4,5,6 In the census of 19 April 1910 in Grand Rapids, Kent County, Michigan, she is listed as the daughter of Fred E. Driscal. Her name appears as Ione Driscal. She is four years old and was born in Michigan, as were her parents. They are living next to Ray and Leone Aylworth, her Aunt and Uncle.7

     When her father remarried and the younger Driscal children started coming along, Uncle Ray and Aunt Leone, who only lived two doors down the street from the Driscal family, invited Ione and her brother, Harold, to move in with them.8
; Clara, Cora, and Iona.
In the Grand Rapids, Kent County, Michigan census dated 9 January 1920, Cora Ione Driscal, shown as Ione Driscal, is listed in the household of Fred E. Driscal. Ione is 13 years old and is attending school.4 Cora graduated from Houghton College, New York.8 ; The Driscal children.


      In 1929, Cora was working as a teacher in Fillmore High School, New York. She taught English for four years. A letter of recommendation written by the school principal stated that Ione did an exceptional job, that she was liked by the students, co-operated with her associates and was loyal to her superiors. It goes on to say that she made a very pleasing appearance in the class room, had ambition, and was independence of judgement.9

      In 1933, Cora was working as a missionary for the Westlyan Methodist Church in Freetown, Sierra Leone, Africa. She was the Headmistress of a residential Primary School.9 In a letter to Mr. Holms dated April 7 1938, R. Birch, Treasurer of the Wesleyan Methodist Missionary Society, Foreign Department, writes,"Miss Driscol worked under me for three years in S. Leone, West Africa. She was in charge of the educational work of our mission during most of that time. She is well trained, deeply religious, stands the climate well, and is fine in her effort to cooperate with her fellow missionaries. I am glad to recommend her, though I shall greatly regret having her leave our mission staff."9 In another letter on September 1948, Mr. F. R. Birch writes to Ione, "Dear Ione: In behalf of myself and also at the express direction of the executive board of the Board of Administration I am conveying to you our hearty appreciation for the good work that you have done for our mission in Sierra Leone, West Africa. For five terms you have served faithfully and efficiently as principal of our Clarke Memorial Girls' School and also as our superintendent of education. Your service always has been of the highest order and cheerfully rendered. It has entailed many long wearisome treks and these have been endured without murmuring. For all of this and the many other fine things you did both in Africa and in America we thank you heartily. Now that physical reasons require that you withdraw form our African staff we bid you Godspeed and trust that your years as Dean at Taylor University may be filled with rich service in training your men and women in the service of Christ and the church."9

      She was living in Indiana at the death of her father, Fred E. Driscal on 17 January 1948.10 ; Fred & Myrtie's family. Fred Driscal Myrtie (Aylworth) Driscal Harold Driscal Iona Driscal Floyd Driscal Marie Driscal
On January 1, 1957, Ione received the Honorary Member of the Civil Division of our said Most Excellent Order of the Bristish Empire. It was presented to Ione by the Governor of Sierra Leone, Africa.3


     A letter written by Ione Driscal from Sierra Leone, W. Africa, dated Jan. 6, 1962. Dear Friends, Christmas has come and gone and so has another year. For me it has been a good one beginning in the States, then at Kambia as principal of a District Council school that had asked our mission for a principal, then here as principal of this English Methodist school... It is not a large school but all 79 girlsl are boarders and the staff is friendly and very helpful... We don't have electricity or running water but we are comfortable.9 She survived the death of her sister, Marie Vivian Driscal, who died on 6 March 1965. Cora Ione Driscal was living at Comstock Park, Kent County, Michigan, at the death of her brother, Harold Driscal on 8 January 1977.10

     THE NORTH PRESS in Grand Rapids, Michigan, wrote an article on Iona Driscal around 1981.
      "Being a schoolmarm wasn't what I started out to do. I wanted to tell others about Jesus," she said in her mobile home at 6884 Vinewood Ave N. W., Plainfield Township. But her way of seriving the Lord as a teacher in the mission field has brought her satisfaction and commendations. On January 14 she will receive another award, an honorary Ph. D. from her alma mater, Houghton College in New York. She considers this the pinnacle of her 55-year career in education which has taken her from Grand Rapids to upstate New York, Africa, Puerto Rico, South Dakota, and back to Kent County. During that time, Driscal, who is 75, is still a substitute teacher in the Grand Rapids area - had received much recognition and many rewards including the prestigious Member of the British Empire for her administrative work and mission school in Siero Leone. She was only the second woman to receive that award in 1957 when it was presented to her. According to a spokeswoman at the British information office in New York, the award in the most excellent order of British empire conferred on civilians for public services and other distinctions. When Driscal went to Africa in 1933, she had been trained as a high school teacher. After graduating from Houghton, she taught high school for six years in upstate New York while waiting for placement by the Wesleyan Church........ Siera Leone wasn't ready for high school, she said so she began an elementay school.
     When she left the country, 30 years later, Siere Leone no longer a British colony and Driscal had become superintented of education. By that time the United Christian Council High School was built and run by all the protestant missions in the country. The energetic woman said, "I was paid to sit in the classroom and train others." When she arrived in Africa, her annual salary was $600 (or $6000 - can't read) "none of our children (who attended school) wore shoes." she ...recalling her arrival in the small country on the Atlantic Ocean. The people lived in homes with mud walls and grass roofs, but I was surprised how orderly and happy they were. She remembers charms to ward off evil spirits hunging over windows in the mud huts. The mission houses then were also contructed on mud walls but had tin roofs and were lighted with kerosene lamps. The country about half the size of Illinois and is 8 degrees north of the equarter where temperatures range from 70 degrees to 130 degrees.
     Driscal did take a 22 day trek through the country preaching. She walked 92 miles through places where people had never seen a white woman, she said. While home on furlough from the mission field in 1938 she was ordained to the ministry. That meant that I could help with communion and baptism. "In Africa baptism is by immersion", Driscal said. "It shows to the people that they really intend to live a Christian life." She estimated that about 75 percent of the children attending the mission school eventually become Christians. Six percent of the 3.5 million people in the country are Christians.
     A former student of hers now has Driscal's job in the Africa mission. Others have had important positions in the African's nation government. Driscal who subsititued in ...... Sparta, Rockford, and Northview schools still gets letters from the students after being away from this country for 30 years........mission academy in Puerto Rico.......returned to Grand Rapids ......neices and nephews in 1965 following the death of her sister. She also taught six years in the Northview school district before retiring.
     The Africians were my people, most of the children in Africa called me "mama" and some are calling me Grandma. Driscal has a scrapbook filled with letters of accomendations and old newspaper clippings. The bindings of the book are falling apart. And the royal citation given her when she received the MBA is signed by Elizabeth the Queen of England has darkened and is barely legiable. "That is what happens in the tropics", she said with a sign. The cheerful woman noted that she is a healthy person although she has had a touch of malaria during her time in the mission field. "The Lord has been good to me."
     Next week, the Rev. Dean Leininger, pastor of her church, Emmanual Wesleyan Church, 1144 Quarry St NE, and his wife Aria, and Driscal's 22 year neice Karen Bentley, will drive to Houghton College, just north of Buffalo, for a ceremony where she will get her Ph D.. She is being awarded in conjunction with the 160th anniversary of the 1,200 student college. She is looking forward to receiving the degree, but she treasures most letters from her former students. when Driscal was awarded the MBA, a former student wrote her teacher, "May God keep the greatest honor for you in Heaven."
     For Driscal who has lived and traveled the worldwide, but now finds herself living alone in Northern Estate Mobile Home Park in Belmont, the words are still relevant. "You have to be pretty sure that is where the Lord wants you."11


     During her lifetime she recieved her Masters degree in education from the University of Michigan, became an ordained minister, and served twenty years as a missionary in Sierra Leone, West Africa (working as an educator and an administrator, sometimes working for the English government). When she returned to the United States she spent some time as Dean of Women at Taylor University. After her youngest half-sister died she helped raise her sister's family and spent many years teaching school in the Grand Rapids area. She was still substitute teaching when she was in her late seventies.8

     Cora Ione Driscal died on 11 June 1998 at age 92.12

Harold's daughter, Betsy, felt that her Aunt Leone and Uncle Ray, were responsible for both Ione's and Harold's sense of curiosity and life-long love of learning.

     Their house was small with floor to ceiling shelves of books and drawers full of photographs. They had a tiny music alcove with pillars at the entrance and inside an old upright piano and more shelves of books. On the newel post at the bottom of the stairs was a bronzo lamp in the shape of a woman in a flowing gown. the attic held all kinds of goodies, particularly Ray's costume collection and some of Harold Driscal's drums.

     In the garage was a black 1934 Ford V8 in mint condition. Ray kept it for years. Along the alley, behind the garage, and against the garage were wonderfull tall Hollyhocks.

It was hard to wach her deteriorate; but her husband, Ray, took good care of her and she seemed content. She was a lovely lady.16

Daniel Driscal1,2

M, b. 12 January 1830, d. 13 July 1862

MotherLaura Purdy3,2 b. 30 Aug 1801, d. 1844
ChartsDaniel Driscal's Descendant Chart
Harold Foote Driscal's Pedigree Chart
     I believe Daniel Driscal, who appears in Michigan in 1880 is the same Daniel Driskill that was in Wisconsin in 1860 and in New York in 1850. I show him as the grandfather of Thomas Driscal. I am making the assumption that Thomas' father is Daniel's son - Daniel. Thomas is living with his grandfather in 1860. At this time, his grandfather, Daniel was married to his second wife, who was nearing 60 years old. It is highly unlikely that she gave birth to this Thomas. Grandfather, Daniel, had a son, Daniel, and it is more likely that this Thomas is his son, than the elder Daniel. This younger Daniel died in 1862. He did not leave a will. He had been ill and was living at his sister's when he died. His sister had five children of her own, so perhaps it made sense for Daniel's son to live with his father, than with his sister. Daniel's estate went to probate and there is no mention of his son. Does this mean that Thomas is not his son and perhaps a son of someone else. I do not know, but I believe he is a relative and not a neighbor and am again making the assumption that he is the younger Daniel Driskill's son. I believe this because: (1) Thomas states in a couple of censuses that his father was born in New York. The younger Daniel was born in New York. (2) Thomas' death certificate states his father's name as Daniel Driscoll and the elder Daniel and his wife, at the time of Thomas' birth were too old. (3) In the Driscal family history passed down through the generations, we were told that our last name once was spelled Driskill and that we had relatives in Wisconsin. (4) I once exchanged a photo of Emma Driskill, from Wisconsin, and compared it to my photo of Thomas Driscal and there was a huge family resemblance.4

     Daniel Driscal was born on 12 January 1830 in New York.5,6,2 He was the son of Daniel Driskill and Laura Purdy.3,2 In the 1840 census in Cayuga County, New York, Daniel Driscal is assumed to be enumerated with Daniel Driskill.7 In the census of 15 August 1850 in Summer Hill, Cayuga County, New York, Daniel appears in the household of Daniel Driskill as Daniel Driskill Jr. He is 20 years old, a farmer, and was born in New York.8 In the census of 21 June 1860 in Sullivan, Jefferson County, Wisconsin, Daniel appears in the household of William Higbie as Daniel Dresco. He is 30 years old, a farmer, and was born in New York. His personal estate is valued at $200 and he is living in his sister's household.9

     Daniel Driscal died on 13 July 1862 in Sullivan, Jefferson County, Wisconsin, at age 32. He died at the home of,John and Lucy Wood. He had been receiving treatment and medication, according to the physician's records, from March 1861 until the time of his death. The inventory of his estate included one soldier's coat.10,11 His estate was probated on 19 July 1862 at Jefferson County, Wisconsin; Emma Higbee petitioned the court of Jefferson County, stating that she believed that Daniel did not have a will. She stated that his estate totaled the probable amount of $100 and real estate in the amount of $50. Emma does not know of unpaid debts.

     Money was paid out of the estate to Lucy Wood, for taking care of him in his last days, to Esther Higbie, W. Schenber, and William Higbie, H. R. Aimsworth, W. A. Campbell, and S. R. Straper.11
