I am the first to build the William Swartz Sr line. He was a Hessian Soldier who remained in America, and married a Mariah Unknown.His son John b 1797 married Catherine Rosenkrans b 1802 daughter of Charrick. In the book it mentions Charrick is the first to go to NY State from near the Delaware Water Gap in NJ PA border.He then disappears. What happened is his family all shows up in Lycoming Co and Catherine marries John Swartz. Both s and z are used in this family.
Catherine's father in law , William Swartz Sr is my 3rd greatgrand father.Only 5 generations back from me as they were long generations. 1752, 1793, 1833, 1884, 1914, 1945.SO not hard to follow my tree, Just to place my interest in your Rosenkrans tree. You ask for changes or corrections so what I have is what you were looking for as you stated Charrick's line got lost. I am the first to add William Sr's children and it is well documented at ancestry. I can invite you to see all the docs there free if you wish. Rootsweb has none of the proof documents for William Swartz FIL of Catherine. I have a photo of Catherine Rosenkrans and her son Alexander. John Swartz is the 8th child of William and Mariah Swartz Sr. The family desc from Catherine, Swinehart gave me the photos. Their line is at the tree.
I will be glad to give you all I have and have brought the Swinehart line down to present. I can add more if interested. My line of course is more complete but John Swarts and Catherine are my 2nd great grand uncle and aunt.
I found it most interesting in my reading of the Rev. War about those of the Colonial side who cleared the Susquehanna River Valley,Wyoming Massacre etc. It appears they had been in the area of the Rosenkrans, prehaps using the river there as portage to get to S NY state using the river to get to Binghamton to go south into PA.Anyway it got me to thinking that Mariah Swarts who accompanied her husband at least from 1777-8 in the war and had two children before 1781 b NY state according to their 1850 censuses, could have been a Rosenkrans or Swarts even from that area. There is a ST Park and lake of that name near the Rosenkrans in NJ.I have to wonder if Mariah came from the Rosenkrans family or extension as well as Catherine and why perhaps they moved from NY state to Mifflin Twp, Lycoming Co,PA soon after 1800. It does answer one question in the book about where he went.I early on wrote to someone about this and not sure if it was you.I would like to correspond more. The branch is too large to send here.
