In Reply to: Surname Swarm by Larry Sassaman of 297

The majority of Swarm family members appear to have been buried in the Emanuel Union Cemetery, now known as Penn's Creek Union Cemetery in Snyder Township. A transcription of the gravestone inscriptions is online at
I found the following Swarm graves listed:
Swarm, Anna, May 11, 1811-April 15, 1892; 80 y., 11 m., 4 d.
Swarm, Henry, Dec. 23, 1869-March 17, 1939.
Swarm, Isaac, April 21, 1821-July 9, 1896.
Swarm, Joseph, d. Jan. 11, 1898; 73 y., 9 m., 25 d. Co. C, 172 Reg., Pa. Vol
Swarm, Margaret, Alice, Sept. 4, 1858-July 15, 1903.
Swarm, Nettie E., w/o Henry, May 3, 1882-April 15, 1931.
Swarm, Susanna, w/o Issac, Jan. 20, 1830-April 9, 1902.
Swarm, Susannah, w/o Joseph, d. Oct. 22, 1890; 74 y., 5 m., 24 d.
Kuhns, Salma, d/o Isaac & Susana Swarm, Dec. 5, 1854-April 18,1902

There are a few Sassamans buried in Penns Creek, but there is a far larger number in the Lutheran and Reformed Cemetery in Jackson Township.

I found several Marys, but no Henrys and none of the Marys was listed as the wife of a Henry.
