George W. SWINEFORD
Susanna FREED
Susanna INHOFF?
WARNING:  except for the census records, this page is supported only by secondary sources, which are inconsistent.  I've made the best sense of them I can, but caveat emptor!  If you know what is correct, please share.  Otherwise, this family is too far afield for me to take the time to straighten it out (my interest here is STRAUB, husband of their daughter, Melinda).
Husband:  George W. SWINEFORD
Birth:  1792/3, PA
Death:  bef. Nov 1857
Occupation:  carpenter
Father:  George Michael SWINEFORD (1764-1812)
Mother:  Hannah STAHL
Marriage-1:
Wife-1:  Susannah / Susanna / Susan FREED
Birth:  ca. 1800
Death:  bef. 2 Dec 1840, but not long before because she appears to be the wife in the 1840 census
Marriage-2:
Wife:  Susannah / Susanna / Susan INHOFF?
Birth:  25 Dec 1809, Union [now Snyder] Co., PA
Death:  27 Dec 1887? 
Occupation:  homemaker

I don't find Susanna SWINEFORD in the 1860, 1870, or 1880 censuses.  Is 1887 a typo for 1857, or did she remarry?
