I am doing research on my husbands family on the Swank side. His grandmother was Eva Swank. She was the d/o Edward James Swank and Florence Carnell.
I believe that Edward James Swank was the s/o Jacob Swank and Anna M. Unknown. Jacob and Anna Swank lived in Guildford Twp., Franklin Co., PA in 1850 and his occupation is shoemaker. Also 1860 and 1870 shows them being in Franklin Co., PA and Jacobís occupation is shoemaker. By 1880 Census he is in Altoona, Blair Co., Pennsylvania and his occupation is still shoemaker. Iím not to sure who his father is, I think it might be Peter Swank . Peter Swank is listed in 1850 Census also as a shoemaker, living in Chambersburg Twp., Franklin Co., PA. By the census he would have been about 26 years old when Jacob Swank was born.
Hope someone can help.
Thanks for looking.
