Below, is all that I have on the Swanger family. If you have more on Thadeous and Minnie's descendants I would love to see it. I am especially trying to find out who Minnie's mother was and when she died. Minnie's father, Alexander Jerome "Alex" Holland married my great-grandmother Martha Emma Dorn Dorn around 1910 in Spartanburg, SC. Alex fathered my grandfather (Herbert Akue Dorn) many years before they married in Charleston, SC. He was born in 1896, but never carried the Holland name. So, Minnie and my grandafther, Herbert would be half brother and sister. Just trying to fill what happened to Minnie and her parents between the time she was born (1889) and his birth (1896).
