I am looking for Ralph Swift who previously posted on message boards in 2000 about a James Platt Swift b.1784 married to Ann Carpenter my ancestors. I too am descended from his son George b.1825, son George 1852 then Charles 1880. We appear to have a shared ancestor.

James Platt Swift was born in Halifax, Yorks England and came to Surrey/London area early 1800s he had 8 children:
Richard Carpenter 1813, Henry 1816, James 1819, Francis Carpenter 1821, Ann 1825, George 1825, Richard Beaumont 1828.

I have traced George 1825 forward through my line and also have some details on James 1819. I am looking for some more details on what happened to James Platt Swift's other children.

I am also looking for James Platt Swift's parents etc. as I have been unable to make the link backwards from London/surrey to Yorkshire.

I beleve from his postings that Ralph Swift may hold the key to this so would appreciate contact.

Also useful would be any links to other SWIFT name forums.

If anyone has any information on above my email contact is:
