I am researching a family of Millers and Swartzells (also spelled Swortzell) who came from the Botetourt Co. VA area to possibly Knox Co., OH then moved on to Northwestern Indiana (around Elkhart & LaPorte) and then some branched north to SW Michigan (Cass Co>Kalamazoo Co).
?? Swartzell (probably b. VA or PA) married Anna C. ?? (b. in VA) before 1813 and their children were: John, Joseph, William, Elizabeth.
John Swartzell married Sarah Ann Miller possibly in OH (no clue who her parents were, yet) and they migrated on to Northwestern IN and then north in to SW Michigan.
Most of the Swartzells were masons by trade and it seems that maybe the Millers that were associated with them may have been of the same occupation.John Swartzell d. 2/1874 in Lockport, St. Joseph Co., MI at the age of 61, making his birth about 1813 in PA (no location).
If anyone has information or connections to this family group, please contact me at my email address.Thanks!
