Birth: Aug. 28, 1870
Grand Rapids

Death: May 13, 1959

I believe this is a child born out of wedlock to George Swank and Mary Newhouse. Mary Swank

-George was the only George Swank in Paris Twp.
-This birth was between his 1st wife's death and his 2nd marriage.
-Mary was the informant, which was rare for that era when the male was still living.
-George's 1st wife is also buried in St. Andrews Cemetery

Not adding an official link as I can't prove it beyond this certificate but I truly believe George is the father.
