My attempt at my first message went bananas and disappeared into oblivon.
I am the g.g. grandson of Margaret Weir (Andrews)Swank. She was first married to a Samuel Fleming and had one daughter Anna K. Fleming. Samuel disappeared and I have not been able to find out where he went or if he died.
She then married Chalres William Swank and one of their daughters Minnie Elizabeth Matilda Swank is my g. grandmother.
James Andrews, our gandfather, as you know left the the U.S. and returned to Ireland and then went to Australia.
In my recent visit to Pennsylvania I went to Mauch Chunk (now Jim Thorpe) looking for more information about him. I know I still have to look further.
I have met via e-mail two of our cousins Elaine McCutcheon and Jenni Andrews.
Teresa Archinal completed and had a book "The Andrews on the Manning" which provided much information about the family.
I look for any information that you might be able to provide and know that I am grateful for your assistance. I have found through Elaine pictures of Charles and Margaret and the only thing that escapes us a a photo of James Andrews.
