Happy 84th Birthday Mom,

It's not a book yet but I wanted to start putting the notes together and in a safe place for the future. It's not much of a birthday present but it is a labor of love so hopefully it will please you.

Your Oldest Son

John Swab Sr. and Henry Swab Sr. are probably brothers although that connection is not proven at this time. They are both from Northampton (now Lehigh) County, in eastern PA. They both moved to Westmoreland County in western PA. about 1800. Henry moved to Venango Co. about 1809 and John followed in about 1828 and lived just a couple of miles away in Clarion County.

Mom, you are descended from John Swab Sr. through his son Joseph to his son George E. to his son James E. to YOU.
