Hi there, Adam Wm or Wm Adam is buried near Mulberry Grove, IL in an abandoned cemetery. I was there around 15 years ago but didn't find the grave although I met other relatives that had a picture of the stone. He died young and I think the youngest child was James who was quite young. He never married and died around 20 if I remember right. Eliza Ann Eshelman Swab Gantz is buried at Polo, IL near her daughter Rosa Rohrer. I have a book that lists the Swabs etc. and why they were in central IL for awhile. I don't know that there was a misunderstanding to change the name. I met some Swabs from Iowa and Michigan and they all were Swab. My great grandmother was Mary Louisa Swab Eisenbise. Hope this helps you and feel free to write either on the forum or to me personally.
