I have a Johann Philip Schwenk s/o Frederick Schwenk ( abt 1750-aft.
1793) and Anna Barbara Schwartz (abt. 1749-aft 1793). Johann Philip
Schwenk was born 28 May 1771 in Northampton Co., Pa. and Bapt. 23 June
1771 in Emanual Llulth. Church, Moore Twp., Northampton Co., Pa. He
married Elizabeth ? about 1792 in probable Northampton Co., Pa. They
had a son John Schwenk 23 June 1793 on Northampton Co., Pa. and Bapt. 21
July 1793 in Stone Church, Allen Township, Northampton Co., Pa. This is
the last that I found them in Northampton Co., Pa. I have birth records
for both Johann Philip and John Schwenk. Johann Philip Schwenk had a
brother Frederick Schwenk b. 7 June 1778 and bapt. 5 July 1778 in Salem
Luth. Church, Moore Twp., Northampton Co., Pa.
I have a Philip Swank (b. 1771 in Pa., d. 1840 in Morgan Co., Ohio)
with a wife Elizabeth ? (b. 1770-1775 in Germany and d. aft. 1860 in
Noble Co., Ohio. That had a son John Swank. b 29 June 1793 in Pa. I
have the family first in Greene Co., Pa., then in Morgan Co., Ohio.
about 1820. In the 1820 US census for Morgan Co., Ohio there was a
Frederick Swank living next door to Philip Swank.
I think that these two families are the same but have no proof. Is
there anyone who know what happened to Johann Philip Schwenk and
Elizabeth, after 1793 and what Elizabeth maiden name was?
This has been a brick wall for many years.
I thank you for any information that will help me in finding the
connection, or can prove that then are not the same family.
