MY SWARTZ FAMILY
My Henry SWARTZ born 1770 married Elizabeth Anna RIBLET. Elizabeth was the daughter of Bartholomew RIBLET; she was born in 1776 near Allentown, Lehigh County, Pennsylvania. Henry & Elizabeth SWARTZ lived in Bedford County, Pennsylvania probably by 1800. According to family story, Henry & Elizabeth had 8 daughters and 4 sons.
Henry & Elizbeth SWARTZ and five children moved to Wayne County, Ohio in 1831. Although they had 11 children which grew to adult hood, I can only name the following children: Robert SWARTZ born 1816 and William R. SWARTZ born 1820 in Bloody Run, Bedford County, PA.
Robert married Susanna KITCHEN in 1837 in Wayne County, Ohio and William married Elizabeth BONEWITZ in 1842 in Wayne Co, Ohio. I feel certain William was probably the youngest.
