Living as a Californian – Genealogy

In seeking answers regarding roots Andrew and I spent the morning looking into our genealogy, trying to dig deeper than what we already knew from PoppaBob & Grammer Bev and Jack & Marguerite. After a few hours of guessing and checking, Andrew finally came across a scanned copy of a book by Bancroft about the history of California.

This exert from History of California: 1846-1848, Volume 5 of 7. By Hubert Howe Bancroft, Henry Lebbeus Oak, William Nemos, Frances Fuller Victor. Page 713; “Schroeder (Martin), 1847, Engl. mr of a vessel, married at Mazatlan, who brought his family in ’49 via Hon.; d. at S. Jose ’81.” (where Engl.=England, mr=master, and Hon.=Cape Horn). In conjunction with what we know about our family tree leading up to this point (see boldface below) helps us to connect ourselves as Californians since 1849.  True 49ers and native Californians of the nation of the Bear Republic, prior the it’s inception as a US state September 9, 1850.
