About Ner Middleswarth

http://politicalstrangenames.blogspot.com/2011/07/ner-middleswarth-1783-1865.html

 Ner Middleswarth was born in New Jersey on December 12, 1783, the son of John and Martha Middleswarth. Young Ner removed with his family to Northumberland County, Pennsylvania when he was ten and received what was referred to as "scanty schooling" during his youth. As an adolescent, Middleswarth also saw service during the War of 1812 as a captain, rasing a company of volunteers to take part in the war effort. During his military service Middleswarth and his company are also mentioned as seeing action during the Niagara Falls campaign. 
  Ner Middleswarth is recorded as marrying in 1805 to Christine Schwartzkop (one article lists her last name as "Swartzline") with whom he had twelve children (six sons and six daughters) over 24 years time. These children are listed as follows: John (1805-1831), May (1808-1876), Moses (1811-1888), Abner (1813-1887), Aaron (1815-1882), Abram (1815-1904), Merib (1818-1890), Elizabeth (1820-1902), Jacob (1822-1864), Martha (1824-1915), Sarah (1827-1900) and Matilda (1829-1915).
