That's what I have on your Adam's ancestry.If you want
their children's names, let me know.
I've been to Berks Co. and York Co., Pa., Carroll And Frederick Cos. in Md., plus the CArroll Co., Frederick Co., and Baltimore Co. HIst. Societies, and the Maryland
State Archives, and I still don't know who my ancestor,
Margaret Swigart (b 4 Dec 1805, pr. Frederick Co., md.
Henry Shauck on 7 Dec 1824, Frederick Co.), is daughter of.Probably Christian, but no proof.
It has been so long since I've done any research on this
line that my memory leaves much to be desired.I believe
I found the original Adam's passenger record, but it's not recorded in the computer, which was my source for the above.
I'd be very interested in hearing from you as soon as possible.I'm going to Md. next week and could do some
Thanks for your data.
