received your e-mail. Have very little information regarding my grandfather Joseph Schweizer other than his birth, death, and my grandmother's name Sara Shellem. Have a great deal of information on her. She apparently descended from an Adams family. Have a great deal of information on that family in an old german bible. My father had a cousin, named Howard, I believe. May still be living. Joan Firth

My grandmother, Sara Shellem Schweizer, born 11/3/1874 comes from a line of Shellem's. The earliest history I have is George W. Shellem, born 8/21/1849, who may be her father. She married Joseph Schweizer and lived in Collingdale, PA until her death. I am really trying to find information on my grandfather, Joe Schweizer who was born on 8/17/1877 and died 6/12/45. I am pretty sure my grandmother was raised in Philadelphia, then Darby.

My father's name is Howard William Schweizer. He was born in Ohio on February 2, 1925. Any connection?

Unfortunately, I've never heard of any of our Schweizers having moved to Ohio. Christian had no brothers and my father Carl and his brother Edward (both now deceased) were Christian's only children. My father's children are all girls and Edward has one son, Edward, who would now be approximately 46 years old, if still living. He may, also, have a son - probably about 25 years old.

I believe my father had a cousin Howard who I think lived in New Jersey. I think he had a cleft palate as did my father's sister, Edna. That is really all I can remember about him.
Thanks for your info.

Just read your message dated 1/27/01 to Alice Benham re Shellem family. I am researching my grandfather Joseph Schweizer who was married to Sarah Shellem. She is a decendant from Amelia Adams. I have an old German bible with some Shellem family history. Who in particular are you researching?
