OUR FAMILY ORIGINATES FROM SPAIN AND SETTLES IN CALIFORNIA. THE MOST SIGNIFICANT ERA IS THE 1850'S WHEN THREE BROTHERS JOAQUIN, JULIAN, AND JOSE RAMON ESTRADA OWNED CATTLE RANCHES IN MONTEREY, CAMBRIA, SAN SIMEON, AND SANTA MARGARITA, CALIFORNIA. THE OWNERSHIP OF THE PROPERTY LATER SOLD TO RANDOLPH HEARST IS PROBABLY THE MOST NOTEWORTHY, THOUGH THE RECENT SALE OF THE SANTA MARGARITA RANCH, OWNED BY JOAQUIN STILL ATTRACTS ATTENTION.
OUR FAMILY ALSO STRECHES ACROSS THE STATES TO WHEATON, MINNESOTA WHERE THE PEYTON FAMILY STILL OWNES AND RUNS A WHEAT FARM. THE NAMES MORRISSEY, OLSON, BURNS, RYAN, AND GALLEGHER TAKES US BACK TO IRELAND.
WE ALSO REACH THE MEXICAN BORDER WHERE THE NAMES CORRAL, AND MESA SETTLED IN THE DOUGLAS, ARIZONA AREA.
ANY INFORMATION ON THESE NAMES AND PLACES ARE GREATLY APPRECIATED.
