Jacob Arend Swigart-born; 1847 in NY

I found my great grandfather Jacob Arend Swigart on a 1900 Chicago Illinois census, indicating his birthplace was NY. The name has been spelled SWIGART--SWIGARD-- and as myself,my father, and his father spelled it SWIKARD. The census said SWIGART so I will run with that! He married a Catherine Heelan from the Elgin Illinois area and had 5 children between there and Chicago where he was a policeman at the turn of the century.I have found two families in NY who had a child named Jacob. Does this sound familiar to anyone? Many thanks for your help.
