My paternal great-grandmother was Mary E Swigart.She was born about 1861 and died in Fairview, IL, in 1914.She married William M Rowe in Fulton County, IL, on 25 Nov 1880.Their children were William b. 1875 , Emmanuel b. 1877, Alvin b. 1879, Elmer Aston/Ashton b. 6 Aug 1881 and Thompson Tipton b. 2 Oct 1889 [my grandfather].She later marriedHarry Hill after William died.Her grandchildren called her Mom Hill.I believe that Mary was the daughter of Mary or Sarah Tipton.Each one married a Swigart/Swigart.Mary was born in 1826 and married John Swigart inFulton Co, IL, 22 Feb 1849.Sarah F. Tipton was born in 1842 and married Henry A Tipton in Fulton Co, IL, 3 Mar 1959.They had a brother Thompson Tipton, and I am hoping that my grandfather was named after his uncle.Mary and Sarah were the daughters of John Tipton and Elizabeth Crawford.John died in Fulton County, IL, when as tree fell on him on 23 Mar 1869.His father was Sylvester Tipton.I would like to trace the family on the Crawford-Swigart/Swigert-Tipton side, but I need to verify Mary's parentage.Any help would be appreciated.
