Pioneer Settler of Southern California. Robert Tweedy and family came to California from Conway County, Arkansas in 1852. They were part of the Captain Johnson wagon train that arrived in El Monte in November of 1852, after spending 7 months on the Santa Fe Trail. The Tweedy family was one of the earliest anglo settlers in Southern California. Robert and his wife Mary acquired over two thousand acres of land which was part of the old "Rancho San Antonio" and when subdivided in 1917 became the city of South Gate. Tweedy Blvd. was named after the family.
