I have a Robert Swayze of Niagara Falls New York son of Stephen Beckett Swayze and Sarah [Van Wyck]. We are at a total standstill for going any further back on our Swayze line, so are playing a hunch and hoping that the "Beckett" is from his mother's maiden name. We have no dates but our only clue is that Robert married Elma Anette Nunn, who was born 11 July 1860. The Nunn family lived in and around the Pelham Twp., Essex and Welland Counties in southern Ontario, Canada. The Nunn family were Quakers and United Empire Loyalists.
