There is a photo of Samuel Baker Swartz and his family sitting on a front porch. He has a sheriff's badge on.

Now about the Knight family. They first came over on the ship Society with William Penn about 1680. My GGG Grandfather was Daniel Cain Knight 1801 who married Elizabeth Wallace, a daughter of a traveling preacher from Delaware. He was married to Nancy Cardiff. He was one of the few surviving family who had 28 members die of a cholora epidemic in Greene Co., Ohio.
