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, Ingram,
and Shields-Studebaker.

RE: Mike Mannix
I am just researching the Mannix line who are my husband's (J Robert Ellsworth) mother's (Diana Mannix Ellsworth) father's (Edmund J Mannix) line. If "Mike Mannix" you spoke of is the son of William Clark Mannix, then my husband is 1st cousin 1X removed from him. Mike's father and my husband's grandfather were brothers. They would share William Francis Mannix and Ruth Wheeler Mannix as nearest common ancestors (parents of Edmund and William). Diana (still living in Sonoma) is Mike's father's niece. My husband Rob never grew up with that line of the family but he was at the 1971 funeral for Ruth Wheeler Mannix. You could ask Mike about this. Let me know. Who would "Clyde" be? You are not related?

Margaret H Mannix Paterson and son Leroy Patterson
Hello Valerie. Please disregard my previous email from today. In order to keep the memorial of Margaret Mannix Patterson with your headstone photo we need to keep #108402636 and delete #168772207. I will transfer her (#168772207) back to you so You as the originator could try to delete it. If that does not work I will contact Find A Grave help desk.
Thanks so much. Also, could you transfer the memorial of her son Leroy Edmund Patterson #124492978 to me #48330101.

Margaret H Mannix Paterson
Thank you so much for all the transfers. Because of the duplicate entries for Margaret H Mannix,can you please delete Memorial #168772207. It will not let me do it because I am not the Originator of the memorial. I will keep #108402636 because of your headstone photo for Margaret. Thanks for your help.

RE: Margaret Mannix
Thank you so much for all the Mannix clan. They are all related. I noticed you have two entries for Margaret. Take a look at Memorials #108402636 and #168772207. When you transfer her to me, I will keep the #168772207 (spouse Patterson) and delete the older #108402636.
Question: What is an AV Cemetery?

Thank you for the information about Adam's death. My mother(his daughter) was 2yrs. old when he died so does not remember the details of his death. This is great information to know!

Thanks for information. Could you link all family members. I could not add Beverly and Ronnie to the family. Can you tell me how to get Dannys' name off his memorial . I linked him as a sibling to himself. Thanks

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.
