Did you try to find embarkment lists in Amsterdam? These lists often
contain the place of origin.

(Shwabel) Schwably who arrived in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on
Brigantine "Mary and Sarah" from Amsterdam via Portsmouth from
Franconia, Wirtenberg and Palatinate and was naturalized the next
day when he took an oath at courthouse 26th day of October 1754.

probably not Schwab even though similar to his name of Schwably
which was later Americanized to Swavely. He had many children, and
I'd be happy to share them with any of his descendants I am
fortunate enough to find.
