Bio and Links
John Wesley Swan is my grt-grandfather, son of John (1801-1842) AND Elizabeth Timms (1798-1860) Swann. Whatever I posted in 2010 is cancelled and I have not posted since then. At the time, I was convinced that I was related to the PA Swans who descend from John Swan (b~1696)of Prince George's County, MD. and his son John Swan (1721-1799). YDNA comparisons proved me wrong. That Swan family is YDNA Haplogroup G and mine is R-P312. We are not closely related at all! I welcome serious inquiries and prefer to communicate at my personal email so that I can send attachments. I have LOTS of info on Swans and not just MY Swans. Lots of photos and docs. I am a YDNA-proven descendant of Edward Swann of Eagleton Plantation, Charles County, Md. In June last, I published my fourth book, 'My Swann Family With Wilson, Shipley, and Alcock Families'. It is a huge success and is the absolute gospel on my Swanns. If you are related to John Wesley Swan (1838-1913), you are related to Edward and Susannah Heath Swann of Eagleton Plantation. phil swan

RE: Higgbottom Cemetery
No I am not related to the Swanns. I am related to the Galyen's that were living in Caroline county.

Hi Phil,
I am a descendant of Samuel Swan & Mary Ball Swan, buried in Keenesville Illinois. Do you have any information on them besides what's listed on the findagrave page? I'm trying to find out who his parents are, but have been having trouble....

Regarding the Swan inquiry

First: my understanding is the Hughes families came from Donegal, Ulster, Ireland, with the Swans & the McClains. And they intermarried with all. My 4th great grandmother is Elizabeth SWAN, spouse of Major Thomas Hughes of Greene, PA

The Hughes didn't get in with English connections until they married with the Curl line from VA.

John Swan b1721 is my 5th great grandparent.

I have the data you gave me in our tree; but nothing of Edward, or James. Nothing of the father of John 1696.

So explain more through my Find A Grave e-mail.

John Wesley Swan
Hi Phil, I am happy to transfer your Great Grandfather to you. It makes all the time I spend sitting on my caboose in front of this computer searching for the soldiers of the 85th Illinois Infantry worth while when family comes along.
I know he is in good hands.
All the best,
