      === Research notes by Deven Lewis

      If the John Sherwood of the St. Barnabus record is the John Sherwood of the Swearingen will, then I think it's possible his wife, Gemima "Ryley", is related to Hugh Riley. Also, in those St. Barnabus records is an Eliphaz Ryley, who was the son of Hugh Riley and brother of Lydia Riley, who married Thomas Swearingen.The Swearingens "gang" was also listed in the St. Barnabus parish records. If I've got this right, Thomas Swearingen had a brother, Van Swearingen, whose sons, Charles and John, married the daughters of John Stull (Catherine and Susannah); John Stull owned property near the Winders property close to Funkstown/Hagerstown, and was a witness to a Winders document. Just a lot of pieces, but can't put it together.
