Submitting this information that it might help someone out there...

From History of Richland Co Ohio 1808-1880 by Graham was one of my sources.

d. 10 April 1867 65y 9m 26d Also bur Pleasant Valley Cem.

Michael and Ann went to Stark Co OH 1827, then on to Richland Co 1832. Purchased 120
acres of NW corner of Section 27 in Monroe twp (Richland CO), later bought 80 more acres.

Michael was Drum Major in War of 1812. Was
"kind, social, and obliging person, jovial and kind" (above source)

7. Peter A Swigart b. 1 Jan 1838, d. 27 Sept 1865, (m. date?) MARGARET ANDREWS
Peter served as Private in Company B, 120th OVI, contracted disease while in army which
caused his death. Have never been able to find out what disease it was...

8. Jesse L. Swigart b? d? (m. 26 April 1863)
REBECCA JANE HENRY b? d? . Rebecca d/o David Henry and Jane Donnalson/Donaldson; granddaughter of Joseph Henry/Henery and Marg Zediker/Zedaker/Zurcher, great- granddaughter of Robert Henry and Ann Little. Jesse L was wagonmaker in Lucas. He served as Private, Company A, McLaughlin's Squadron of Cavalry, was with Gen. Sherman and march on Atlanta, to the sea.

Jesse and Rebecca members of Evangelical Luth Church at Lucas. Jesse member IOOF Lodge #224, member of Burns encampment #131.

Jesse and Rebecca had 3 daughters (only kids known at this point):
Orange Swigart, Olive Swigart, Cora Swigart

Now then, I have info on HENRY,CHEW and ZEDIKER families, plus bits and pieces on others that married into these families. I have info on families of George Washington CHEW and ELIZ SWIGART, and their descendants, though not from ALL of their kids. Largest amount from their daughter Lydia Ann who married James Alexander Henry.

The above info represents everything I have on Swigart family.

Would appreciate any info on any of the above families. Does anyone have info on Jesse Swigart and Rebecca Henry and their descendants?

Contact me at
thanks lois
