The Swearingen Family
The quest for my children's roots started from the time they were born as I was already involved in the search for my own. Their cousins, Gary Swearingen and Gary's sister, Deborah Swearingen Daniels, had been on an independent quest of their Swearingen lines and when we met back up last year they graciously shared the data they had found and allowed me to incorporate that data in this compilation. Many thanks go to them both.
The Swearingen line has been
extensively documented and much of
the data here is from those sources. They include but are not
limited to: Gerret Von
Sweringen in the U.S.A., A compilation of his progeny in the year 1977
by Lola Thoroughman
Van Sweringen; Early Families of Southern Maryland Vol. 4.;
Prince George's's Co.,
Maryland Indexes of Church Registers 1686-1885 Vol. 1.; The Swearingens
Swearingens Since the Civil War; The World Book of Swearingen; The
Family Register Gerrit Van Swearingen and Descendants by H. H.
As with all other compilations that I present, I make no claims as to authenticity. Other than that of my direct line, I have no proof of any data. While some of it seems plausible, I leave the responsibility of proving the truth to each person. I have source document originals and copies of some data and will gladly mail copies of these to interested individuals. When a seeming connection is made, I urge each to start digging for the real, positive, and tangible records that will make that connection reality and not mere speculation.
