The Swegle Name
What does it mean?
". . . 'Swegle' was not spelled 'S-w-e-g-l-e' in German.
More than likely it was spelled 'S-c-h-w-e-i-g-l-e.'
The English sounding 'Sw' had a German 'Schw' sound.
The first 'e' didn't get its sound without the 'ei' and 'k' is silent in German.
Schweigkle means 'flute player' in German . . . .'
Excerpt from The Swegle Family History Book by Al Swegle privately printed in 1986.

Back in the 1970s, we were in contact with two ladies married to Lafayette descendants.

One lady also had Alice (Swegle) Bradbury's Bible.
Where are these Bibles now? We have no idea.
Could you help us discover their location?
We have contacted the immediate descendents of these ladies, but none of them knew the present whereabouts of the Bibles.
