I’m looking for information on the ancestry of Stephen Switzer/Swisher. The last record I
can find of him is the Iowa 1895 State Census where he is residing in Grand River, Wayne
County. He was born in VA/WVA in 1815. He is on the 1840 and 1850 Guernsey County, OH
census. By the 1856 Iowa Census he is in Richland Township, Decatur County, IA living
next door to his son-in-law Noah Green. His wife Evaline (Ferryman) appears on this
census with him. By the 1860 census, he is still in Richland township, but his wife no
longer appears on the census. He is still in Richland on the 1870 census. I haven’t
found him on the 1880 census yet.
I’m looking for information on where he and Evaline are buried. Ideally, I would like
information on his and/or Evaline’s parents/siblings.
Any help, suggestions or direction gratefully accepted.
