Robert Hinton and I are working cooperatively parallel on Hinton/Henton lines, and both of us are interested in descendants of George and Persis Henton of Berks County, with thousands of known descendants from the Rockingham County branches. I have copied John Robert Swank's extensive work on the Rolston/Rolstone/Ralstons who have married into the Henton/Hinton family and would be glad 1) to share what I have and 2) to augment, add to and flesh out the basic data that Swank put together. I was fortunate enough to correspond briefly with Mr. Swank, a Henton descendant as well as a Ralston, before his death at 96, and recognize the value of his work with cemetery records in Rockingham County. Swank noted in his work that many of the descendants in both families adopted different spellings ... Hinton and Henton ... Ralston and Rolston ... and he adopted a single spelling for all descendants. Longevity in my family leads me to a realistic hope that I can be active as long as John Robert Swank -- that'd give me another quarter century to keep building our family history.
