I have now spent two delightful afternoons with Clarence Mullenix, a grandson of James and Margaret Ellen Mullenix. Clarence celebrated his 88th birthday on 28 September 2005 and he has answered all the questions I have had the mind to ask so far! I look forward to meeting his twin brother, Lawrence, who also still lives in Kitsap County. Clarence's grandparents did not homestead - they bought their land from an existing owner ofthe property. Mullenix Road was not named because his grandparents' land was there, nor his father Raymond's farm land, but was so named sometime in the 1960s because his Uncle Estel and Aunt Ethel's land was on this road. It is Estel and Ethel's photo on the cover of the August issue, and it was Estel who donated several items to the Kitsap County Historical Society in 1954, when their address was still Route 3, Box 373. —MxWorld, Vol. 20, No. 2, November 2005.
