Nice to meet you! Yes, those names are familiar and contact me at my e-mail address please. I would like to hear all the info you can share. My sister had talked to members of the Swink/Swank Family before, and they seemed to have quite a bit of info on their extended family. Were they also of Black and Native American descendants? Do you have any photos?
I am related to Simon Casey, by his son Harrison who married my Great Grandmother, Nelle Belle (Murphy), daughter of Patrick and Louvenia (Martin) Murphy, Gram Belle's daughter was Marie Casey, who married Lon/Alonzo Taylor, son of Jerome and Mary F.(Fulton)Taylor. Gram Belle also married again to Ferdinand/Ferd Taylor and had no children of their own, but he helped raise her 4 children, her grandchildren, my father and his sister (Ray and Mabel Taylor).
My brick wall for years was who was our great-grandpa Jerome's father. His death certificate listed a Frank Taylor. I just recently found more info on Frank Taylor/Tyler who was suppose to be Jerome's father.
Do you have any info on-line I can view?
Thank you for the additional information. If it is o.k. I would like to send this info to my sister for review. I would also like to ask you to check out our website, but I will need your e-mail address to add you to my list of people that can view my tree. I have seen a lot of our info on the public viewing section of Ancestry.com, but to see everything you may need to be listed as a guest or contributor.
