Ancestors of Alvin Kent Swonger


Generation No. 7


      64. Michael Swanger, born Abt. 1753 in Lancaster Co, PA; died Abt. 1812 in Cumberland Co, PA. He was the son of 128. Jacob Schwanger and 129. Maria Susanna Leyenberger. He married 65. Unknown.

  32 i.   Michael Swonger, born Abt. 1775 in Lancaster Co, PA; died Abt. 1830 in Dickinson, Cumberland, PA; married Mary Jane Albert


      66. Mathias Albert, [prob.], born Abt. 1737 in Bern, Berks, PA. He married 67. Anna Margaretha Klee, [prob.].

      67. Anna Margaretha Klee, [prob.], born March 09, 1740/41. She was the daughter of 134. Johann Nicolas Klee and 135. Lisa Margaret Staudt.

Notes for Mathias Albert, [prob.]:
Although I am lacking proof that Mathias Albert was the father of Mary Jane Albert, here is the circumstantial evidence:

(1) Mary's birth and death dates are firmly established from her gravestone.
(2) Mary and Michael's eldest child was born in 1807, so they presumably married around 1806.
(3) All of the names that they gave to their sons (Jacob, George, John, and Michael), except for "Mathias" were names used in previous generations and/or other lines of Swangers.
(4) Mathias Albert received payment in September of 1806 from Paul Swanger, administrator of the estate of Christian Swanger, for help rendered to Christian's widow. Michael Jr. and his father, Michael Sr. likewise received payment in that year for harvesting wheat for Christian's widow. Therefore, Michael Swanger Jr. could have come into contact with Mathias Albert and/or his family in the year that he likely married Mary Jane Albert.
(5) Mathias Albert appears in the 1800 Septennial Census in Mt. Pleasant, Adams, PA, next to Cumberland County.
(6) Only one child's birth or baptism record is known: born 31Jul1796 and baptized 4Sep1796, at Abbottstown Reformed Church. There were probably several others, including Mary Jane.
(7) Mathias's will was probated in 1809.
