Such a surreal moment as this is my Great Grandfather John Joseph Swinnerton. I am just getting into Genealogy and started with my Grandfather (John Joseph Swinnerton born 18 Feb 1919) and found this forum. What I know from my grandfather’s is that his dad (John) and mom (Hannah Carey) had his sister (Annie, I think) and him. His mom – Hannah – died when he was four, and his dad remarried her sister (my grandfather’s aunt), Gertrude and had the remaining children.

When my grandfather died in 2000, I believe his siblings: Samuel and Edie Utley were still alive. I am uncertain if that is still true (as it is 16 years later).

Thanks for letting me follow along in your research and I am excited to know my lineage better.

Hi ,
Further to the elusive Samuel Swinnerton. I have been informed that in the 1915 Census he was
an patient at the Kings Park State Hospital, Smithtown, Suffolk, New York.
But his place of birth is incorrect which we information can be incorrect.
Question  Are these hospital records available online?

thanks,
bswinno.
