Jacob SWARTZ was
born in 1744 in Franconia Twp., Montgomery Co., Pa..
(9211) He resided on 22 May 1767 in Bucks Co., Pa..
(9212) He owned Quit claim and release of rights on Goshall Godshalk's
mill and lands on 22 May 1767 in Towamencin Twp., Montgomery Co., Pa..
(9213) Joined wife Eve and her brothers and sisters in releasing rights
to the mill and property. He owned 100-acre plantation bequeathed from father,
Andreas Swartz on 23 Nov 1771 in Hilltown Twp., Montgomery Co., Pa..
(9214) At a cost of £330, £25 to be paid within one year
of the death of Andreas and then £25 per year paid without interest until
the debt was retired. This land was owned by Peter Sager prior to being sold
This land, apparently, was exchanged for a 97-acre plantation in Hatfield. He owned 97 Acre plantation exchanged for the Hilltown inheritance on 4 Nov 1774 in Hatfield Twp., Montgomery Co., Pa..(9215) His brothers and sisters were somehow part of the agreement, in that they may have also acquired or inherited adjacent acreage of this Hatfield property, not including the 97 acres.
Originally purchased by father, Andreas Swartz, from Jacob and Ann Foorman, 10 April 1769. It is believed, according to Hannah Benner Roach, that Andreas died before the land was fully paid for and Jacob made up the difference after the death of his father.
This property is located immediately north of the Hatfield Fair Grounds, less than a mile due east of the Yelles Kassel plantation, abutting the Johnson and Oberholtzer farms on the east and north lines. At one time, all the owners of the tracts in this vicinity were inter-related by marriage.
On 27 May 1775, 12 acres were sold to Christian Conver, a neighbor; on 18 April 1777, 20 acres were sold to Benjamin and Anna Rosenberger, southeast of Jacob and Eve. He owned 177 Acres and Messuage (house, barn, buildings, etc.) from Michael & Verona Meyer on 27 May 1794 in Hilltown, Bucks Co., Pa.. (9216) Previous land and home sold to Frederick Ratzell at the same time. The total property size was 182 acres, having bought four more acres on 27 May 1797 from Frederick and Catherine Fluke. Jacob sold 40 acres to his son Andrew on 18 April 1804 and the remaining 142 acres on 26 April 1816 to John Detweiler Jr. for £3500. He owned Small plot of four acres purchased from Frederick and Catherine Fluke on 27 May 1797 in Hilltown Twp., Montgomery Co., Pa..(9217) He owned Three lots, in all 166 acres purchased from Henry and Elizabeth Leister on 1 Apr 1816 in Warwick Twp., Lancaster Co., Pa..(9218) Located on the east side of Old York Road, sloped northeast to the Neshaminy Creek. One of the three lots was sold to son-in-law Andrew Koonser, a second to son Abraham Swartz on 4 Sept. 1816. On 24 Sept. he conveyed 51 acres along the Neshaminy to his son Isaac for $3798.
He resided Remaining 65 acres of original 97 acres of land acquired on 4 Nov 1774. 4 Nov 1774 to 1794 in Hatfield Township, Montgomery Co., Pa.. (9219) Sold in 1794 to Frederick Ratzell and moved to Hilltown, Bucks Co.. He served in the military American Revolution in Hatfield Township, Montgomery Co., Pa.. Hannah Benner Roach believes that Jacob took a more active role in the Revolution than most Benner men, but in 1779 he was listed as a Non-Associator. He did have fines assessed against him in 1777, but less than those assessed against other Benner men. Most Mennonites, by the beliefs of their faith, opposed military action and most in that area were fined £37,10 out of a maximum £40, whereas Jacob's fine is recorded as being £4,10. On 12 December 1777, he sold a blanket to the army for £4.10.
Later Jacob conformed more to the norms of his neighborhood, and in 1778 and 1779, paid the same fines as the others. Parents: Andreas SWARTZ and Barbara ----.
John SWARTZ was born on 18 Jul 1747 in Franconia Twp., Montgomery Co., Pa.. (9221) Parents: Andreas SWARTZ and Barbara ----.
Margaret SWARTZ was born on 7 Dec 1732 in Franconia Twp., Montgomery Co., Pa.. (9223) Parents: Andreas SWARTZ and Barbara ----.
Maria SWARTZ was born on 2 Dec 1728 in Franconia Twp., Montgomery Co., Pa.. (9225) Franconia Twp. was not actually set up until at least 1739. Parents: Andreas SWARTZ and Barbara ----.
Sara SWARTZ(9227) was born on 18 May 1805.(9228) According to information on the Web from Melissa A. Kinzer, she was born 1804. She was buried in Feb 1868 in Lost Creek Mennonite Cemetery, Fayette Twp., Juniata Co., Pa.. (9229)(9230) Row 25 She died on 18 Feb 1868 in Pennsylvania.(9231) (9232) (9233) The death certificate of Solomon Benner states that his mother's maiden name was
Sarah Eyster. Since death certificates often rely of the memory of distraught
survivors, this information is considered less reliable. Still, further sources must be
sought out to confirm the findings. It is also, of course, possible that Sara was married more than once.
On the tax list of 1734 for Philadelphia Co. (now Berks Co.), Hanover Twp., the record shows a Christian EYSTER and a Johannes EYSTER.
Attention should also be given to pedigree #989, WFT., Vol. 1, where it shows a Sarah Swartz marrying William Benner in 1846.
In Hannah Benner Roach's work, "Detective Work Among The Benners," she lays out the details of Sara Swartz being 16 year's old at the time of the marriage and Christian's association with the Swartz family. This greatly weakens the likelihood of Sara's name being Eyster.
Variations of her given name were Sara and Sarah. The Juniata Co. Cemetery Index shows Sarah married to Christian, but does not show her maiden name. Parents: Isaac SWARTZ and Magdalena BERGEY.
She was married to Christian BENNER in 1821 in Bucks Co., Pa..(9234) (9235)(9236) (9237) Children were: Maria BENNER, Testen BENNER, Isaac BENNER, Elizabeth BENNER, Thomas BENNER, John BENNER, William BENNER, Abram BENNER, Sarah Ann BENNER, Solomon BENNER, Catherine BENNER.

James R. TERRY(9255) resided in Roanoke, VA.(9256)
Mary Ann TICE was born about 1796 in Pennsylvania. (9261)(9262) Research of Eric Emfield (see e-mail source) has year at about 1794. She resided on 10 Oct 1850 in Antis Township, Bellwood, Blair Co., Pa..

Catherina TSCHANTZ was born in 1595.(9272)
Barbara TSCHUDIN was born in Aug 1616.(9274) She died in Oct 1686 in Muttenz, Kanton Basleland, Switzerland. (9275) She was buried on 6 Oct 1686 in Muttenz, Kanton Basleland, Switzerland.(9276)
She was married to Michael LEIPE on 19 Mar 1639 in Muttenz, Kanton Basleland, Switzerland.(9277) Children were: Michael LEIPE, Urs / Durs LEIPE, Leonhard LEIPE, Barbara LEIPE, Anna LEIPE, Barbara LEIPE, Hans Heinrich LEIPE, Adam LEIPE, Dorothea LEIPE.
Mary TURNBAUGH OR SMITH(9278) was born on 27 Jul 1809 in Pennsylvania.(9279) She died on 14 Jul 1869.(9280) Based on inconsistencies in family history records, it is possible that Mary Turnbaugh or her husband Jacob could have been widowed prior to this marriage. Barbara may be a true DOMER, but it is also possible that her surname is Turnbaugh, which would make Mary's surname Turnbaugh from a previous marriage. More research is needed.

UNKNOWN was born in Maine.(9287) The Census of 1880 shows a Joseph Brawn, age 80 (born 1800) whose occupation was a cooper, living in Bradley, Penobscot, Maine, along with wife Anna, age 75. Their parents are also listed as being born in Maine. While it is possible that Joseph Jr., born abt 1845, could be their son, it must be remembered that some records suggest that Joseph Jr.'s parents were living in Milton, N.H. when their son died in 1882. No conclusion to this as of June 4, 2007.
UNKNOWN resided Springfield, Ohio in 1897 in Springfield, Clark Co., Ohio. (9289)
