Descendants of Martin Leon Swanner
Generation No. 1
1. MARTIN LEON2 SWANNER (?1) was born 1832
in Ohio, and died April 03, 1904 in Sullivan Co., IN. He married LEANDER HALLMARK July
22, 1860 in St. Franciso, MO.. She was born 1846 in St. Franciso, MO., and died February

Notes for MARTIN LEON SWANNER:
Janet Weleb, as the source in the IGI, lists Martin Swaner as being born in St Francisco
Co., MO. in 1832. He was a tall blonde man, but apparently according to his granddaughter
Pearl Fitz, he suffered osteoporosis like his descendants. His death cert. (his wife was
present) states that he was born in 1832 in Ohio. Neither source lists his father but the
death cert. lists L.G. Hollmier as his mother.
At one time James and Betty Devore along with sisters Goldie DeVore and Pearl Fitts tried
to find Martin and Leanna's graves. They were unsuccessful.
MARTIN LEON SWANNER:
Burial: Webb Cemetary
Cause of Death: Pulmonary Tuberculosis
Notes for LEANDER HALLMARK:
Pearl Swnner Fitz says that Leander Halmark Swanner was of Irish descent. This is VERY
POSSIBLE!! She was a small dark woman. Margaret Winters Swanner described her as being
In an abstracted copy of LeAnna Halmark Swanner's death cert., Leanna's parent are listed
as John Swanner from Sullivan and Icy Swanner from Tennessee. I know this can't be right.,
in fact I believe these are the names of her son and daughter-in-law. Due to the multiple
deaths in this family all at once, were these infornmants in a state of confusion? Did
they just misunderstand the question? Was a mistake made in the Sullivan Co., Health Dept.
when they abstracted this info? I'm so confused!!! They also listed her as 88 years of
age, but born May 20, 1882. This is obviously not right. Maybe the informant "Martaw
Swammer" gave them his/her own parents and date of birth???
