Here is a timeline for my family, please help me to find a record or deed
which might name his WIFE, no wife has been found yet.

7-17-1779, Culpeper Co VA (now Madison Co VA0, John Swindle, Jr is born to
parents who are part of the Fort Germanna Community of Central Virginia,
they speak German and attend a German church. These are descendants of
German immigrant to Virginia in 1717.
His father is John Swindle, Sr, a Revolutionary War Vet of Culpeper Co VA,
and his mother was Hannah Weaver, d/o Hans Dietrich Weaver, aka Peter.

1797: the Swindle family, along with other Fort Germanna families leave
central Virginia to make a long trek to land in Boone Co. KY. This trek
will take many years to complete. John Swindle, Sr and his wife settle
there permanently, his son Joseph Swindle goes on to Monroe Co MO, Solomon
C. Swindle goes to Georgia, and John Swindle, Jr. ends up in GRayson Co VA
and Ashe Co NC.

1800, the Federal census: John Swindle, Sr along with 2 of his sons, one of
