Need information on Swink family from Pennsylvania. Am writing a history book for the town of Milliken, Colorado.
This is what I know:
Charles A. Swink was born on June 11, 1872 (or maybe 1873)in Strasburg, Pennsylvania. Both of his parents were born in Sweden. He married Emma Carlson, daughter of Charles A. and ??? Carlson in Iowa, date unknown. He was a farmer and businessman in the town of Milliken, Weld County from at least 1900 until his death. His wife died before he did. Charles A. Swink died in 1968. Funeral services were at the Swedish Free Mission Church in Greeley, and he was buried in Linn Grove Cemetery in Greeley, Colorado
Charles had four siblings who survived him:
Allen Swink of Broomfield, Colorado (who has since died). Allen had a son, Walter Swink, also of Broomfield.
Milton Swink of Topton, Pennsylvania. Milton had a son, Milton Swink, Jr., also of Topton.
Elizabeth Swink Goetz of Macungie, Pennsylvania
Elsie Swink Shaeffer of Macungie, Pennsylvania
Apparently Charles had a surviving aunt, Mrs. Sally Frederickson of Easton, Pennsylvania, and he was apparently somehow related to Martha Swink of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
The loss of the 1890 census has really hurt my search.
I would appreciate any help you can give me.
Thanks, Janice -- email firstname.lastname@example.org
