Descendants of Johnathan Swarthout - The Webmaster's Lineage - I can verify and provide documentation for anything I have listed on this page. There is a lot of erroneous information floating out on the web. Anybody that can find solid information on Johnathan Swarthout's parents would be great. (Note: Nathaniel IS NOT Johnathan's father.)

Descendants of Tomys Swartwout - This is the big one! This is the webmaster's database. This is a good sized page, but it is all text. NOTE: No guarentee is made as to the accuracy of the listing here, references are linked on some items. I can attempt to provide further detail on the information listed, typically from the records of Mary Rindfleisch.
