Joseph Swinehart (sometimes Swineheart) married Elizabeth Zimmerman about 1808.

Joseph was born about 1786, in Washington Co, Pennsylvania. He is listed as living in Belmont Co, OH, in 1817. They later move to nearby Guernsey CO, OH.

Elizabeth was born about 1787, in Virginia, the daughter of Henry and Catherine (Spurgeon) Zimmerman.

Her sister married Jacob, the brother of Joseph Swinehart. All research to date suggests that it was the children of these two sisters who married two brothers, who each changed their name to SCHWYHART in the early 1800s, around the 1830s. [For more details on the name change, CLICK HERE.] There is no indication that either Joseph or Jacob changed their names throughout their life-times. However, as the father of his son, Joseph, Jr., Joseph is listed in one reference in Knox Township, Guernsey Co, OH, as Joseph Schwyhart.
