Eva Maria "Mary" Swint
Posted by: Judy Wagner Date: February 21, 2000 at 00:12:29
  of 183

Hi Gary. I'm your third cousin. Your Great Grandmother and my Great Grandfather were sister and brother. Eva Maria (what my info shows) "Mary" was the 7th child and Edward Michael was the 8th child of Henry & Catherine Geschwind (later Swint) My grandmother was Ida Swint Darr, and my mother Audrey. Have you seen this article???

information provided by Lulu Lorena (Swint) Tobey

FROM THE 1812 HISTORY OF SANDUSKY COUNTY

Henry and Catherine Swint, natives of Germany had a family of eleven children, three of whom came to this country. Henry, their fourth child, was born in 1814. He married in 1848, Rosina Reineck, who was born in 1831, in Baden, Germany. Fifteen children have blessed this union, viz.: Anthony, Sandusky Township; John, Ballville Township; Catherine, wife of Frank Zimmer, Fremont; Jacob, Fremont; Joseph, Fremont; Ambrose, Rice Township; Mary, wife of Frank Freeh, Fremont; Edward, Lizzie, Sarah, Ella, Josephine, Henry, Anna, And Rosa in Rice Township. Mr. Swint is a weaver, and worked at the trade in Germany. He served twelve years in the German army. He came to America and settled in Riley Township in 1845, but at the opening of the war with Mexico he joined the army and continued in the service until July 1848, when he returned to this country, married, and settled down to farming in Rice.

(I believe Henry was actually the 5th child not the 4th)

Great to "meet" you!!!---Judy
