I would love to make contact with Bruce as I am a Swartwout descendant living in Oregon.

Bruce how fascinating, and how wonderful for you to have such a great piece of family history. Thanks for your kindness in writing, Tim

I have a 1816 Bible that once belonged to Henry Swartwout. Amazingly there is a old mews paper clipping glue to the pages with the story of Abraham Swartwout. There were other interesting notations in the clipping about Indians of montreal killing some family and taking a woman captive. Also Mrs Henry Swartwout was killed in an accident by a wagon 1894. Henry Swartwout died from basically of old age in his home in 1892 at Troy NY. Some of the decedents appears to have changed their surname to Swartwood.
