Eve Swope was born Nov 14 1750 , died 15 Jan 1839 and was burried Barrens Cemetery. She married first [before 1767 in York Penna] to Conrad [Johann Conrad] GENßLER / GENTZLER [born 15 MAR 1745/46 Germany, died 1776 Battle of Amboy New Jersey] . She married 2nd [before 1779] to Nicholas [Johan Nicholas] BENTZ [born Codorus Township 5 Mar 1758 died York Co., PA. 10 Jun 1828, buried Barrens Church] . Although we have direct line BENTZ's, descending from immigrant Johannes Bentz, the Nicholas BENTZ she married 2nd is not a known member of our Bentz family group, but research continues to encompass him, if he belongs, somewhere within the BENTZ larger family from which we are direct.
Bryan Bentz has also been searching this individual [Brian maintains a Bentz Family Genealogy Website relevant to Andreus BENTZ [of no known current relationship to our Johannes] & also a Searchable by Archive mailing list relevant to BENTZ research]. I am attaching our two letters to the group detailing info on Eve Swope and her possible ascendancy in the table, and beside each other, below. Brian maintains dual ascendancy to Eve SWOPE via both of her marriages.

(or Maria Eva Swope,
I tentatively have identified her parents.
As you may know, Eve married first Conrad Gentzler,
When Conrad died, his will left money to
"pay assignees of Nicholas Swoop
I've found a number of references to a
I think that Nicholas was Eve's brother,
hence the reference in Conrad's will. I have no idea who Jacob Remer was,
At least it's a place to start looking for verification.

I'm wondering if the Hans George Swope
you are identifying as born Oct 5 1705 is the same as Johann Georg SCHWAB
baptised 9 Jan 1706 Leimen, Heidel-, Baden , who married Lena Or Anna Barbara
LEVER. [one confused online geneology has her as LEYER, but the Swope
book of Remembrance has her as previous] Hans (Johann ) Jorg (Jeorg)
SCHWAB was his father, and Anna Eva HAMMER his mother.
I have eight children born to this union, among them the Johann Georg SCHWAB baptised 9 Jan 1706 Leimen, Heidel-, Baden i mentioned above. He was a blacksmith in Paradise Township. He was alive in 1756. The Swope Book of Remembrance offers no more regarding him than that which follows:
ì The sponsor at the baptism was Johan Georg Wohlfarth (or Wolfhardt) of "Duehren bei Sinsheim", the grandfather of Hans Georg Schwab and the great grandfather of the child. ...He was a blacksmith in Paradise Township in York County when his father died in 1756. ì
In searching for more about him, I have
found the following will abstracts, and reviewing the information
in the Swope book of Remembrance, see reference to the second. The
first will abstract could be his but likely is not, as the wife's
name is not consistent. The second, the Book of Remembrance suggests
as his mother. I am wondering with their thorough research on this line
in Penna if Swope book of remembrance dismissed the Geoge Swope will as
not pertaining to George son of Johann Georg SCHWAB baptised 9 Jan 1706
Of this entry, I find Swope book of Remembrance states " In York County will Book B, page 105 is the will of Ann Eve Sweven (could this be a mistranslation of the German female ending ,,Swobin"?) of Paradise Township, York County" and goes on to discuss it.
