Bio and Links
Bio Photo I live between Yorkville and Boonville in the Anderson Valley. My family first purchased land here in 1948 on what was the first the Elkins ranch and then the Yorkville Ranch. We are on the banks of the Rancheria. I am a retired Elementary school teacher. I have been working on the cemeteries in AV and uploading genealogical information on our pioneers and early settlers. If you would like to collaborate or need help with your Anderson Valley genealogy I would be happy to hear from you. I am also happy to supply any photograph I have from the four cemeteries: Yorkville, Rawles-Babcock, Evergreen, and Shields-Studebaker.

Evergreen cemetery
The listing for Linda L. Simpson does not go with the photo shown. The redwood slab marker is for my family; Dad, Thos. Bruce Simpson, Mom, Amanda Viola (Soderlund) Simpson and my sister Linda Beryl Simpson.

Dear Val: Thanks for the picture of the Cemetery. Is it possible that Andrew's or Mary Jo's Tombstone can be photographed. Thanks for your assistance.

Hi Valerie,

Thanks for the information you gave me. They all were friends of my family. I knew some of them.

I was raised in Anderson Valley, went to school and graduated from there.

Thanks for the complement, you gave me on my memorials.

I will get the information, on the memorials, as soon as, I can.

Thank you again. Louise

I edited his death date, but the tombstone reads 1858 for birth date as best I can tell. So glad you are working on Anderson Valley Cemeteries. My ancestors came from there.

Thanks for tracking down the William R. Wimmer headstone. Rather rustic. I appreciate your help. Steve
