My daughter is also going to try contacting my brother to see if he will release anything to her. The census year for the info I posted the other day was 1880.
I don't know who might have the family bible, but I will try to find out if anyone on my end knows anything about it. That might take a while, but I will do my best.
My gr grandfather John married Elizabeth McKee, daughter of Joseph McKee who was born in Ireland about 1785.
From what I have read on this forum, you and I are the only descendants looking for this line of Swanks. My info is just in tablets right now, but I will gladly give you anything I have that you want moving forward and anything I can find going back.
My brother had the name Balthasar Schwenk, but I don't think there was a family connection. I think he just put it in there because of the name. If you can make a connection, please let me know as I found some info on his ancestors going back to the early 1600's in Germany.
Mary Lou
