Hans George Zweyer is my paternal 5th Great Grandfather. He arrived here in 1751 from Alsace, France. He died of old age and asthma on Dec. 30, 1769 and was buried in the old cemetery at St. Paul's Chapel / Most Blessed Sacrament Church on Jan. 1, 1770. The Zweyer name evolved into Swoyer or Schwoyer. His burial at MBSC is documented however there is no headstone. (information provided by Genie Junkie May 28th 2009)
