I came across a detailed listing  for Little River Cemetery in Mendocino Co., California. My uncle Arthur Knapp is buried in this cemetery and ‘Church’, the maiden name of his wife, is on his gravestone (visible in findagrave photo). He died in his fifties and Ella remarried John Elgin, also buried in this cemetery, as was John’s first wife Mary. The listing for Little River Cemetery does not include Ella Candace Church Knapp. I have not been able to figure out where Ella is buried.  Do you have any ideas for me?

Ella was born in 1859 in Marian Twp., Lee Co., IL and died some time after 1930. In 1930 I found her living as a boarder in Palo Alto, CA.  She and Arthur were married in Iowa and moved out west together as a young married couple. They had only one child, Winifred, who died at age 18 and 'Winnie' had a married name of Bullard.

MENDOCINO-LITTLE RIVER CEMETERY DISTRICT
P.O. Box 1185., Mendocino, CA 95460

Above is the contact information for the cemetery as listed on http://www.publiccemeteryalliance.com/directory.php. If I were you, I'd call or write to find out who is buried in your uncle's plot. It's highly likely that because your aunt's maiden name is on the same stone as your uncle's, she may be buried there, too.
