Lithopolis Woman is Named Defendant in $10,000 Alienation Suit Entered in Local Court Today. Value of her husband's affection were today appraised at $10,000 by Millie Kesler, wife of a Lithopolis restaurant proprietor who has entered suit in the Fairfield Common please court for damages in that sum against Mary E. Clark for alienation of his affections. Recently Mrs. Kesler brought suit in the local court for divorce. Her petition filed today recites that she has lost the society, affection and services of her husbnad Alvy Kesler, because he was enticed away by the defendant and that she has been shamed and dishonored by her husband's alleged conduct. The defendant, Mary Clark, owns certain real estate, the value of which Mrs. Kesler says she is not aware and asks that the defendant be restrained by the court from disposing of the property. Her petition includes the allegation that on January 1, 1928, the alleged partnership in the restaurant business was formed and on or about May 22 the defendant and the plaintiff's husband went to Carey, Ohio, remaining three days. She further charges her husband has neglected and abused her to such an extent that she was forced to institute the divorce proceedings against him. Attorneys G. C. Raver and Jno. H. Cooper represent the plaintiff. LANCASTER DAILY GAZETTE, Lancaster, Ohio, January 4, 1929, p 1.

NOTE: SPOUSE IS UNCONFIRMED! This theory initially started out with finding death info for a Robin Sibbit Morrow b 10 Jun 1961 in Warren, Trumbull Co., Ohio. She died there 19 Nov 1988, Cert. 092832, her parents last names listed as HODGKISS and FOOR. There was no Hodgkiss in my database at the time so I tried to search for a Hodgkiss in Warren. A Robin Hodgkiss is somehow connected to Donald G. and Shirley M. Hodgkiss as I found two documents indexed with all three names listed at the Trumbull Co., Ohio Recorder's website. I then tried to find something on Shirley Hodgkiss to see if her maiden name was Foor. I found her in the SSDI as being born 08 Jul 1929, and died 24 Jul 2006 with the last known residence of Warren, Trumbull Co., Ohio. No obit could be found online but it's now 3 months after her death. The only Shirley Foor I thought it could possibly be was this Shirley born about 1929, so the date of birth fits.
According to an email from the Local History and Genealogy staff at the Warren-Trumbull County Library in Warren, Ohio, "We have located an obituary for Shirley Hodgkiss who died 24 July 2006. Her obituary states that she was preceded in death by a daughter, Robin, whose last name was not given. We searched, but we did not locate any obituary for Robin Sibbit Morrow who died November 1988." Because of the mention of Robin, the info found for Shirley Hodgkiss mentioned above must be for Shirley (FOOR) b abt 1929.

Thomas Swope, grandfather of S. B. Swope, was born in Huntingdon County, PA., Feb. 19, 1800, and was the youngest son of David and Mary (Cole) Swope. David Swope was born March 4, 1771 and was the owner of a farm in Huntingdon County, PA., three and one-half miles distant from that of his wife's father, Thomas Cole, the mountain lying between them. The records of Huntingdon County show the sale of the Cole farm on May 12, 1801, and that of David Swope on May 16, 1801. After disposing of their farms, they, with their respective families, moved, in May or June of that year, to Fairfield County, O. There, in the dense forest, they cleared land and built cabins, and, with their neighbors endured the privations and hardships of pioneer life. A convenient cabin was built by David Swope, with one window, a door hung on wooden hinges fastened with wooden latch on the inside and opened on the outside by means of a string that was tied to the latch and put through a gimlet hole in the door. The Indianas regarded those who left the latchstring of their cabin doors outside as friendly, but those who too in the string were objects of suspicion. David Swope set out an apple orchard and other furuits and early built a two-story, hewed log house, which contained two rooms below and two above. Two porches graced the building, one on the south and one on the north side. He also built a hewed long house with a threshing-floor between two commodious mows, wheat in those days being threshed by the trampling of horses upon it.
David Swope, by thrift and industry, accumulated sufficient to give each of his children a property. The home farm at his death, August 9, 1826, went to his youngest son, David Swope, who, not inclining to farm life sold it later to his brother, Thomas Swope. The wife of David Swope Sr., was born June 3, 1779, and survived her husband many years, dying February 20, 1857. Thomas Swope walled in a lot on the home place where his father, a brother and sister, a niece and the oldest and the youngest of his own children were buried. In 1909 the last two named were removed to the family burying ground in Amanda Township Cemetery.
Soon after his marriage, Thomas Swope took possession of his farm which he cleared and on which he built a two-story, brick house, a large frame barn and other buildings needed in successful operation of his farm. In the early days he carred on the business of freighting by means of a four or six-horse team and wagon, and hauled produce from the surrounding country to Baltimore, MD., and would there load far the return trip with supplied for the merchants of the towns near home. These trips were often attended with great difficulties and dangers, and sometimes were without financial rewards. Upon one occasion, having slaughtered some seventy-five hogs and cured the meat, he conveyed it to Baltimore, where is was disposed of to merchants, who failed before paying him. In 1819, with a man named Hooker, he built a raft and loaded it with produce for New Orleans. The trip down the Ohio and Mississippi Rivers was easy, but the return was most difficult, and many miles of it were walked along the river banks. He died August 13, 1884.
Thomas Swope was married to Rebecca Le Fever, who was born October 10, 1805, and died August 15, 1887. She was a daughter of Jacob and Rebecca (Bechtel) Le Fever. Her father was born March 1766, and died November 18, 1844, and her mother was born December 4, 1770, and died February 3, 1829. Thomas and Rebecca Swope were parents of the following children, of whom the oldest and youngest died during the lives of the parents. David, the eldest, in 1837, fell from a loaded wagon and was crushed beneath the wheels. Jacob died at Wellsville, MO., in 1906. Margaret A. died in April 1911, on the home farm. Mary E. is the wife of Robert Sturgeon and lives in Kansas. Rebecca died in 1906. Thomas J. lives at Reynoldsburg, O. Tilitha Jane, now deceased, was the wife of James Ingman and lives at Barnes, KS. Abner R. lives at Bloomingburn, Fayette County, O. Louisa is the wife a B. F. Ashbrook and lives at Milo, O. Samuel lives at Toledo, O. Felix is a resident of Lancaster, O. Emma J. was the wife of Robert Peters and died in 1872.
