Obituary -- (Findagrave.com):

XENIA — Mrs. Sarah Ann Reese passed away May 04, 2017, at Elmcroft of Xenia. Sarah was born in Clifton, Ohio, to Isaac and Florence Swigart on December 25, 1928.

Sarah worked at Wright Patterson AFB. She was very dedicated to her work and decided to expand her career and take on the adventure of moving to California to work at Norton AFB. Sarah eventually retired from her life's work there and moved back home to Clifton where she was very active in the community.

Sarah enjoyed her dogs and collected many teddy bears. Christmas was always her favorite time of year, not only because it was her birthday but also because she lived so close to the Christmas wonderland, the Clifton Mill.

Sarah was preceded in death by her late husband Harry Dee Reese, Jr. Sarah is survived by her sister, Nellie (Larry) Gillaugh, nephews and nieces, Garry (Cynde) Gillaugh, Terry (Becky) Gillaugh, Sharon (Jeff) Ewry, and Cheryl (Richard) Hudgell, cousin, Keith (Barb) Swigart, and many great nieces and nephews.

The family would like to thank Hospice of Dayton and the staff and community of friends at Elmcroft of Xenia for all of their love, care, and support in Sarah's final stages of life. Graveside services will be held at Clifton Cemetery on May 13, 2017 at 10:00 a.m., with the Reverend Anne Horton.

SPIDER'S BITE CAUSES DEATH
Xenia. Saturday, Feb. 6, 1909. Blood poisoning caused by the bite of a spider resulted in the death of Solomon Swigart, 77, a well-known farmer.

Blood poisoning, which developed from the bite of an insect, caused the death, Friday night, of Solomon Swigart, for years a prominent farmer of Sugarcreek township, at the home of his son, Edward, near Beavertown. He had been ill two weeks. Mr. Swigart was 77 years of age, and born, reared, and spent practically all his life in Sugarcreek township. He was the son of Michael Swigart, a pioneer, who settled on over 600 acres of land in Sugarcreek township in 1812, and whose large family of children was reared to manhood and womanhood in that locality. Mr. Swigart's home until recently was two miles north of Bellbrook. For some time he and his wife, who survives him, had been making their home with their son. There are three children living; Edward, Mrs. Mary Gray and William, the latter of Middletown. The funeral services will be held at Mt. Zion Reformed church, of which the decedent was a member, Sunday afternoon at 2 o'clock.

He was buried in February 1909 at Mt. Zion Shoup Cemetery, Beavercreek, Greene Co., OH, Findagrave #140514437.

REUNION

Of the Swigart, Campell, Tobias and all the families connected thereto, was held in Solomon Swigart's grove near his residence 3 miles north of this place last Thursday, Sept. 8, 1898.

The forenoon was spent in social conversation. The long table was ell supplied with everything good to eat that the heart could wish for and was partaken of by about 100 persons. It was unanimousley decided that the Moon man and his friend Simon Sparks of Dayton ate more chicken than any other two at the table, which fact the attention of those at the table were duly called to.

A nice stage was erected and patriotically decorated and an organ placed thereon. The first thing after dinner was the election of officers, the result of which is as follows: Stephen Campbell, president; Martin L. Tobias, vice president; Joseph Swigert, secretary; Mrs. William Strain, corresponding secretary; John Huston, treasurer.

Committee to prepare program for next year; Misses Beryl Huston, Clara Tobias, and Mary Campbell.

1st, the program opened with a song from the audience.

2nd, A prayer from Rev. Trout.

3rd, Song by audience.

4th, Speech by Solomon Swigart, short sketch of the Swigart family which was as follows:

"Michael Swigart my father was born December 3rd, 1785 in Hagerstown, Maryland. He had four brothers and one sister, Peter, Jacob, John, Henry, and Susanna. Peter and Jacob moved to Indiana, bought farms, lived and died there. John died near Zimmerman, O. Henry died at the home of his sister, Mrs. Susanna Engle, known as the Isaac Engle farm in Beavercreek township.

Michael Swigart moved to Ohio in the year 1806, bought the farm now known as the Michael Swigart farm, and the house that now stands on the farm was built in the year 1828. At that day, 70 years ago, it was considered a very fine house. He married Miss Sarah Nave, sister to John Nave. She was born December 20, 1795 and to them were born 8 children, four sons and four daughters, namely: Joel, Michael, David, Solomon, Barbara Huston, Elizabeth Huston, Salome Ewry, and Sarah Tobias. Michael Swigart and his wife now have 45 grandchildren, 81 great-grandchildren, and 6 great-great grandchildren making in all 140 offsprings.

When Michael Swigart moved to Ohio, where the court-house now stands in Dayton was a thicket of hazel brush. He done all his business trading at that day in Cincinnati which required one week to make the round trip. About the year 1840 he married the widow Tobias, the mother of William, Daniel, Samuel Tobias, Polly Ewry and Catherine Haines.

Michael Swigart died in February 1869, in his 84th year."

5th, Song by the Misses Beryl and Cena Huston, Eva Tobias, Myrtle Shepherd, Stella Perdum, Mable Whitacre and Nora Huston.

6th, Speech by Rev. Trout which was quite appropriate and very interesting.

7th, Solo by Miss Mable Whitacre.

8th, Recitation by Miss Bertha Perdum.

9th, Remarks by Samuel Tobias who spoke of the satisfaction it was to him to meet some of his relatives whom he had not seen for 19 years and many friends he had not met for 8 and 10 years.

10th, Recitation by Miss Stella James.

11th, Speech by Simon Sparks of Dayton, who said he was born near Spratt's corner, and that he felt at home among the people of that community.

12th, Recitation by Miss Belle Huston.

The vocal music was furnished by an octet of ladies and was well rendered.

That bright, beautiful September day will long be remembered by those who attended the first family reunion of these pioneer families, where friendship, sociability and fellowship reigned supreme, and may the annual reunion be held every year in perpetuation of these honored families.

The next reunion will be held at the old Solomon Shank farm in the woods near the Brown school house 3 1/2 miles northwest of Bellbrook.

Swigart1

F, b. before 7 August 1820, d. after 1830
     Swigart was born before 7 August 1820.1 She was the daughter of John Swigart and Mary Krise.1 Swigart died after 1830.1


Note: Some online genealogies show this daughter as Julie Ann Swigart, born 1815, married Henry Zepp and lived at Martinsburg, Berkeley County, Virginia (now WV). Given the transportation and communication technology of the early 1830s in Ohio, I doubt this. John and Mary Swigart were settled at Greene County, Ohio by August, 1820, so that is where this child grew up, at least to 1830 when she was still living and with the parents. It is not likely that she would have known a man from Berkeley County, Virginia, nor have settled so far from her parents. The John and Mary Schweigart family found in the 1850 census of Carroll County, Maryland would be a far more likely candidate family for the Julie Ann who married Henry Zepp. But I have no further evidence one way or the other at this date.
