About Our Family Research

My fathers people (Tostens, Longs) came from Franklin County, Pennsylvania, my mothers people (Kettermans, Swishers) Kettermans came from Adams County, Pennsylvania, Swishers came from Franklin Co., Pennsylvania. My parents met in Greencastle, Franklin Co., Pennsylvania. They were married in Hagerstown, Maryland.
Found the Tostens, Longs, Swishers back to 1850 in U.S. Census for Franklin Co., Pa., cannot find any information before that. Found the Kettermans (Kettoman) back to 1850 in U.S. Census for Adams Co., Pennsylvania. Some good leads but no proof beyond that.
