John Sweet had apparently agreed to pay £2 toward the construction of the meeting house, for on 10 April 1637 he owed that much, but on 15 May 1637 "Mr. Sharpe hath remitted freely by the town the £4 he did underwrite for meeting house. But John Sweet £2 is not remitted" [ STR 1:44, 49].1

    My favorite ancestor is Nancy Weaver Swindle who was born in April 1815 in Ashe Co., North Carolina, the daughter of John Swindle, Jr. John was the son of John Swindle, Sr., a Revolutionary War veteran from Culpeper Co., Virginia. Nancy's middle name came from John, Sr.’s wife, Hannah Weaver, the daughter of Hans Dietrich Weaver of the Fort Germanna Colony in Virginia.

    When she was a teenager, Nancy was sent to live in Monroe Co., Missouri with her paternal Uncle Joseph Swindle. It was there that she happened to meet a newly widowed doctor from the area. Dr. Jeremiah Brower was born in 1801 at New York City. His immigrant ancestor, Adam Brouwer, arrived in Manhattan in 1642, and there married Magdalena Verdon in 1645. Nancy and Dr. Brower married 12 November 1837 at Shelby Co., Missouri. They resided in Schuyler Co., Missouri. until 1852, when they relocated to Iowa. The Doctor died in Iowa in 1875.

    In 1882 the widow Nancy Brower, along with all of her unmarried daughters and one single son took a wagon train on the Oregon Trail from Wayne Co., Iowa to La Grande, Union Co., Oregon, where the family settled. Nancy’s daughters all married there, and she died there in 1901.

    Nancy is my favorite ancestor because she was born on the East coast, married in the Mid-West, and died on the West coast. In her lifetime she saw the whole country pass before her eyes, from chapter to chapter of her life. She made a very long and lonely wagon trip from her home in Ashe Co., North Carolina, to live with family, but she would never see her father or siblings again. She was a widow but not frightened to take her children on a long and dangerous wagon train to a new place. She was a real Pioneer woman with lots of courage and strength.".
