About Mary Swasey

Ben M. Angel notes: This profile was apparently mis-merged with Mary Horton Hallock (1667-1752), wife of William Hallock (1667-1736) at one point. Mary Horton Hallock is now located at:

This profile for Mary Betts Swasey (ancestor of film star Patrick Swayze) originally had her birthplace as Newton, New York (a look-up of the name shows no such place in Queens County). Apparently the correct name for this locale was Newtown. This, however, wasn't the name of the location at the time of her birth, if it was in 1654, as this was still part of New Netherlands and called Middenburgh or Middleburgh. The present-day locale name is the Elmhurst neighborhood in Queens, New York.
