During a trip to New York City, I found two Swanton wills in the Manhattan Surrogate Courthouse which were written in 1798 and 1835. The testators, Ellinor and Robert Swanton, also resided in Cork, Ireland.

These wills contain a wealth of information regarding Swanton relationships (fathers, sisters, brothers, nephews, nieces, cousins, etc.) and their property ownership, both in the United States and in Cork, Ireland. Ellinor Swanton may have been Robert Swanton's aunt. I've linked Robert's will to some interesting biographical information about Robert, including his involvement with the United Irishmen in 1798 and his escape to America. There is also extensive information about Robert's nephew, Thomas Swanton, a noted Gaelic scholar and outspoken patriot.

I've always loved music and singing, and finally decided to convert some of the songs I've recorded over the years to mp3 files and put them on my web site.
