About Minerva Catherine Van Swearingen

I've found court records in Ohio Co., WV which indicate that early in 1784 a man named Van Swearingen fathered Elizabeth Zane's illegitimate daughter (named Miriam Zane). Witnesses of the proceedings are listed as David Shepherd and John Boggs. Van Swearingen is required to give Betty Zane and her child some land so that the child will not become the responsibility of the county.
