One Person at a Time....Eleanor

~Even though I have a lot of people in my family tree, I also have a lot of "holes" that need more research. Over the next few months, I am going to attempt to patch up those holes by doing research one person at a time- starting at the beginning of the list~

Today's Name: Eleanor

I had 3 women named Eleanor in my tree that needed to be researched:

#1: Eleanor
Before Research:
Eleanor was born in 1712 in Scotland. She married George Bartram (b. 1708 in Scotland) and they had at least 1 son: George (1734-1777). George married Ann Bartram (1741-1824)- my 2nd cousin, 10x removed.

After Research:
I didn't find much about Eleanor, just that she died on 03 Sep 1775 in Darby, Pennsylvania. 

#2: Eleanor
Before Research:
Eleanor married Moses Owens and they had at least 1 son: John Robert (1826-1893). He married Anna Eliza Mendenhall (1830-1910)- my 3rd cousin, 6x removed. 

After Research:
I couldn't find much about this Eleanor either. She was born about 1789 in North Carolina and she had 2 children: 
John Robert (1826-1893) 
Rachel (b. 1829)

#3: Elenor
Before Research:
Elenor had a daughter- Mary Virginia Shane (b. 1864). Mary married Henry Luther Mendenhall (1862-1937)- my 2nd cousin, 7x removed.

After Research:
Eleanor Swope was born on 17 Apr 1842 in Fall, Indiana and died on 06 Feb 1923 in San Francisco, California. Her parents were John Swope (1818-1876) & Mary Ann Stewart (1825-1881). I don't know if she had any siblings.

Eleanor married George Washington Shane (1837-1899) on 02 Apr 1862. They had 2 daughters- 
Mary Virginia Shane (b. 1863)
