I am looking for any information about Lawrence O. Swigart and as far back as possible. Lawrence O. Swigart was my grandfather. And he was married to Meldia M. Lambertson. They lived in Council Bluffs, Iowa. They had 8 children, Carol L, Catherine, Michael D.(died as a child), DeWayne E, David D.(died as a child), Rebecca J, Julie A, and Clifford A Swigart (died May 2004). All of Lawrence and Meldia's kids were born in Council Bluffs, Iowa. I know there is a Tom Swigart that is a cousin to my Mom (Carol). And I believe there is a Vernon Swigart that is also a cousin to my mom. And they have a sister who is married to a Doctor Pepper who lives in or near Virginia. Any information about this family would be greatly helpful. Also if you have any information about the Ray family. Which is who my mom married and had children with. As I said my Mom's name is Carol. My dad's name is Ronald Lee Ray. And the kids they had are Ronald Lee Ray Jr., Thomas J, Tammy L, Amy D, and David M Ray. My grand father on my Dad's side of the family was Floyd M. Ray, and Wanda E Kingsford. Both are dead now. And I do not have any information before them. I was how ever, told once, by my Grandma Wanda, that her grandmother was full blooded American Indian (Native American).
