Henry E. Sweitzer was born c1809, perhaps in PA. He may have moved to IN with the LEVERICH family, where he married Julia Leverich in LaGrange Co. in 1834. He also may have lived in IA, but came to California in 1849 where he because rich enough in the gold fields to buy property.
There is only one incidence of his middle name that I can find, and it is difficult to read. It may be ESLIPT, but it also may be ESTEP, which I am hoping is this surname.
When Henry came to California he had several children, then had several more before his death. They seem to have stayed in this state.
Is there anyone familiar with this family? I have more information.
