  • There are some differences in the birth dates reported for JohnMcSwain.  All sources are agreed that he was born in RutherfordCounty, North Carolina.  I am reporting the exact address that isreported on the Burial records for Antioch Baptist Cemetery, CherokeeCounty, South Carolina.  The Hamrick Data Pages report December 1849,while the cemetery information is 29 October 1849.  The source of theHamrick date is not known.  Others estimate from age in censuses.

    The 1850 census says John was 10 months old.  The census was taken 4September, for a census date of 1 September.  This would match thecemtery gravestone date .  If he was born on 29 October 1849, then hewould have been 10 months old on 29 August 1850.
