Whisman Shoemaker Swartz Lundgren Carlson Hernandez Tree

About Our Family Research


Dedicated to the many families coming to California in covered wagons and to Southern California to build the Santa Fe Railroad; from Germany, England, Sweden, France, Spain, Mexico, China, and other places; whose paths have crossed in Turlock, Porterville, Fresno, Watsonville, El Toro, Riverside, Monterey, Salinas, San Jose, Palo Alto, and San Francisco, as well as in Texas, Michigan, and New York, we hereby begin to give back to our communities and distant relations. The last of this line, would like to keep in touch with the last in the line of the family trees that interconnect with the other family trees mentioned above. The most researched and most complete line, from Charles Leonadis Whisman, Jr. (Chuck), back through John Whisman to Daniel Boone, and back through Nellie Whisman (Shoemaker) to John Shoemaker, Catherine Linderman, and Jacob P. Goodell (Michigan) intersects with Swartz, Lundgren, Carlson, and Hernandez, giving rise to two mayors of Turlock: one a distinctly Swedish-American and the other a distinctly Mexican-American. There may be Jewish roots through Spain's conquest of Mexico. Feel free to ask for help for your search or to give information to help create this large family tree.
