I have dozens of descendants of Philip Swank (Feb 1788-01 Dec 1871)
born in Pennsylvania, lived in Tuscarawas County awhile, moved on and
died in or near Chillicothe, Livingston, Missouri. His wife was widow
Catherine Cribbs Hukill. Much of this data was given to me by others,
but the mother of one of his daughters-in-law was Clarissa Hartline
1820-1853. Jim Hartline, Sterling Heights, Michigan.
