Our information matches. My ggrandfather Samuel Richard was an older brother to Lonnie. I also cannot go back further than Stephen & Mary. My records show a question that Mary may have been part-Indian and an e-mail acquantance asked the same question. Let me know if your info is valid. Let me know what other info you need and I would be happy to share. The questions we are trying to answer are: 1. where is Lonnie's grandfather William Swain buried? 1. When Samuel Richard & family took a covered wagon to NE from OH, which of his brothers came to help finish the trip after Samuel was struck by lightning? 3. Did Stephen Artis serve in the Civil War?
