The Swan Family


Descendants of Samuel Swan and Harriet Smith


FIRST GENERATION

1. Samuel Swan claims to have been born in Sept 1793 in Stonington CT. The first identifiable record of his life is his presence in the household of William B. Smith in the 1820 census of Chenango County. This was the year he married the Smith's daughter, Harriet Smith. The couple lived with her family until 1822 when they moved to Angelica, Allegany County NY. In 1834 the family returned to Pitcher, buying the "East half of Lot 23 (73 and one-half acres) in Brakel Township for the sum of 300 dollars, current money of the State of New York"; from the Holland Land Company. This property was on the border of Pitcher and German Townships. In 1847 they sold the property to Hiram Perry and moved to the Catlin Settlement in Lincklaen. When Samuel died on 24 Apr 1860, Harriet moved in with their son Julius until her death on 24 March 1883. Samuel and Harriet are buried in Woodlawn Cemetery, Lincklaen.

Harriet was born on 17 Apr 1803, in the area that would become Pitcher. She was the first child of William B. Smith and Rebecca Bissell. The couple had married 28 Jul 1802 in Litchfield CT and immediately left for the frontier in NY. On 1 May 1804 they purchased 150 acres in lot D78 in the DeRuyter Township (now Pitcher) from the Holland Land Company. The couple had 10 children in Pitcher, the last being the twins Lewis and Lucius born in 1820. The family life did not end happily for the Smith family as William left his family about 1822 and "went West". He is reported to have died in Texas in the 1860's. His leaving may have be instrumental in the departure of Samuel & Harriet for Allegany Co. Rebecca seems to have died in 1834, an event that may be linked to the return of Samuel & Harriet to Chenango County.

She was born 18 Aug 1830 to Justus and Lydia (Holt) Crandall in Cortland. Samuel had some sort of a problem with his name. Early in his life he identified himself in the census and land deed records etc., as Samuel Swan. Possibly as a result of confusion with his father of the same name, he later used "S. Prentice" or "Prentice" Swan. Indeed, he is buried in Woodlawn Cemetery as "S. Prentice". After his death on 4 May 1881, Calista remarried to a John Ackley on 25 Jun 1887.

The couple are shown in the 1850 census for Lincklaen living next to the Samuel Swan family. Shortly after the birth of their first child, the couple moved to Bloomfield OH where they are shown on the 1870 census. Apparently due to the family's interest in the Seven Day Adventist Church the family then moved to Battlecreek MI where a center was being set up.
