A little more info might be helpful. My great great grandfather, Peter Swank was born in New Jersey in 1802, came across Pennsylvania in a covered wagon with his family at age 2 or so. They settled near Akron Ohio first and later removed to the Elkhart Indiana area, and finally Peter and his wife and son, John Calendar Swank, settled in Cass county Michigan in about 1860, I think.
He died in 1871 and is buried in the Sumnerville Cemetery. His wife was Sarah Brown.

I do not yet know who his parents were, but I and others are searching.

This might the same Peter Swank as yours.
