Hi Joa.... Thanks for getting in touch.You are correct, my Johann (John) Schwinn was named after his father, Johann.And it appears he named his first born son Jacobus(Jacob), after his father's middle name.
Evidently your ancestor was a sibling of my John's.I can't wait to find out who they are!!
I would appreciate getting what information you would like to share.And I will be more than willing to share with you too.Wouldn't it be great to do like you mentioned and send our information around and let all the distant cousins add what they know?
