Seeking information on those related to and familiar with the Swinger – Orwig/ Orwig – Hedden/ Hedden – Hiller or Hiler families from New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Ohio to Illinois and beyond.
Seeking information specifically on the Ellis Newton (1878-1962) and Anna Belle (1879-1949) [nee Orwig] Swinger family of Fulton Co., Illinois. Have been trying to trace the family story of Anna Belle’s ability of healing and premonitions of things to come from having a Native American/Indian lineage.Anna Belle’s parents were:David Jacob (1843-1921) and Harriet Mary (1853-1924) [nee Hedden] Orwig.(All that I’ve found is of a German background.)
If anyone has any information or is familiar with this family line, I would appreciate hearing from you.
