HERE IS
A GROWING LIST OF PIONEERS
WHO LIVED AND WORKED IN MONO OR INYO COUNTIES
BETWEEN 1840 AND 1900.
They were merchants; packers; farmers; sheepherders; homesteaders; miners; and mine engineers, superintendents or owners. One was a famous attorney, another was an ambassador to China, two were photographers, and one was a merchant whose store still stands in the ghost town of Bodie, California.

Many of these people later went on to very different careers. So even if you believe your ancestor never lived in California, keep an open mind to the possibility. You just may find an adventure in your ancestor's past.

This list is far from complete. If you have any Inyo County or Mono County ancestors to add, please use the form at the bottom of this page.

PLEASE NOTE:
Birth dates may be off by up to 5 years.
