Swaren Family Genealogy Forum
I have been in contact with some Swarens on the west coast. We have been trying to find the link that relates us. We think the secret lies in Illinois. In my family, a Christian Swarens died in Tazewell County, Illinois. In their family they know there was a brother, John born 1834 in Tazewell and his obiturary says he had a twin brother who died in his 22nd year and a brother Lewis. John died February 4, 1902 in Foster, Missouri. There is also an obituary for the brother Lewis Jackson Swarens, whose birth date is not mentioned, but he died June 21, 1931 when he was murdered in the line of duty as a railroad security officer. His obituary doesn't mention his place of birth, but he did move to Phoenix Arizona from Butler, Missouri, which in Bates County, same county as Foster, MO.
Neither obit mentions parents. You would be a great help to those of who have been struggling to find the pieces,if you can help
