I have some information that may be a little helpful. It gives other names to research a possible connection.

First of all, the name of Robert Perry's wife "Hatetable" was most likely "Mabitable", which is a name that did appear in the early 1800's from time to time.

In the marriage records of Eaton County, MI, several Perry and Swift marriages are listed. Some of these people may be related to you.

Perry, Albert J. m. Hattie Boyer 10/12/1881 (very doubtful this is part of your family, from Ohio)
Perry, James m. Electa Bayles 01/25/1865
Perry, James S. m. Susan Swift 12/31/1859 (this is your family)
Perry, Levi H. m. Margaret Walsh 10/15/1865
Perry, Rhoda I. m. Royal Moon 04/30/1859
Perry, Samantha A. m. Alvin N. Jones 02/12/1854
Perry, Susan m. Anson Laverty 03/06/1853
Perry, Worden F. m. Hannah Herring 12/11/1863

Swift, Charles m. Mary Cook 09/12/1861
Swift, D.C. m. Amanda Roberts 04/20/1856
Swift, Elina m. Issacher Hamman 03/13/1847
Swift, George m. Mary Louisa Dean 11/06/1856
Swift, James H. m. Ida Jane Myres 12/30/1865
Swift, Lemuel P. m. Maria J. Brooks 03/06/1853

Also, a Helen Swift b.1835 m. Joel Wilson Latson in Eaton Rapids.

Several of these people appear in census records. In 1880 James S. and Susan Perry are living in Barry County, MI. James' info states that his father was born in NJ and mother in NY. In the same county is an Orson Swift of VT and probably not related to Susan.

In 1880, Kalamo, Eaton County, MI was Robert (1812 NJ) and Mahitable (1818 NY) Perry. Nearby was a Samuel A. Perry born in NY as well as his parents. This was probably Samuel Augustus Perry of Rochester, NY. I don't know if he was related to James S. Perry or not. Another family nearby was that of George W. and Margaret Perry. George may have been a brother of James' since he was listed as born in NY and father in NJ. Also in Kalamo was Lemuel P. Swift (b. NY parents-NY) and James H. Swift (b. MI parents-NY). Were they related to Susan? Another Swift family was in nearby Walton, Eaton, MI; D.C. Swift b. NY and parents-PA.

I hope this information can help you. Do you have any idea where in NY James S. Perry was born? Do you know where in NJ Robert A. Perry was born? Do you have information on Susan Swift Perry's family? Answers to these questions could yield more clues to solving your brick wall.
