Are these meteorites members of a single strewnfield, or are they from multiple overlapping falls?

IMAGES of my 2nd LV find - This is the 15th Lucerne Valley meteorite find. It was made 29 days after I made my 1st find.
IMAGES of my 3rd LV find - This is the 16th Lucerne Valley meteorite find. It was made 14 days after I made my 2nd find.
IMAGES of Ron Hartman's March 26th 1999 LV find - This is the 17th Lucerne Valley meteorite find. It looks like my 1st find in shape and external appearance, but it is three times larger.
IMAGES of other LV finds made by Ron Hartman - LV 001 the discovery find. An excellent close-up image in color of LV 004. It looks similar to his LV 017 find, but doesn't have the benefit of 36 years additional weathering. The exterior of LV 004 is much less smooth than LV 017. The interior of LV 004 is much less rust colored than LV 017. According to Hartman, the majority of the orange discoloration in LV 004 occurred AFTER it was cut!
LIST of CALIFORNIA METEORITES - There hasn't been a reported meteorite find in California since 1992 (Chuckwalla). In a span of 5 months, I have found 2 different types of meteorite at Lucerne Valley, plus 3 more types at another CA location! Total of 5 different meteorites to be added to this LIST!
