Swann Family

Swann Family

Lou is descended from Edward Swann of Maryland.

Jeff Swann has had a great website on the SWANN family. He is currently working on getting set up with a new Internet Service Provider. We will show the link as soon as he gets it up.

Because of website size constraints, we are going to start showing only the generations that have the surname on each surname page. When the lineage gets down to the last person of the surname, you can link to the surname page of the man she married.
