Dear Marge, It was nice to hear from you are one of the very few I have
found who share the same line as I do except for my relatives in Delaware and
Sullivan Cos. if course and immediate family. Florence Prehn wrote at the
bottom of the page of the transcription of the Swart Bible which evidently
belonged to Emeline J. Swart, daughter of Polly Beeman and William Swart.
After the transcription of the Bible, there are handwritten information
regarding your ancestors Anna Beeman and Samuel Swart. I presume that
Florence wrote this information. I will send you a copy of this page
tomorrow. This information names your Peter as Peter Frear Swart. Also, I
quote: "Samuel Swart b Feb1795 Esopus d ae 72y d 3 Oct1868 ae 71-9-18(49 in
1850)" then an arrow pointing to this line "Grandma 'Tillie' Stanton came
there age 20 y to go to school and helped around the house." Above this line
is written "Rev. War Soldier ('colored man as companion') [The Long Papers,
p. 78]" Obviously, he could not have been served in the Revolutionary War
but did he serve in the War of 1812?
I am back several generations and tomorrow will e-mail you privately what I
have so you can compare, when you have time, what you have. Thanks so much
for responding. Carol J. McCraw, in Woodland, CA.
