Notes

  • Edward is enumerated as Edmond in teh 1860 census, when his family aerresident in Jefferson County, Arkansaas.  They have moved there sincehis birth in late 1856, and before the birth of his young sisterSallay, who was born 10 months before the census.

    1860 Federal Census, Jefferson County, Arkansas, 25 September,Talladega Township, p 21, PO Locust Grove, Hse/Fam #146
    George A McSwain 34 M Farmer $560 Real Estate $180 Personal b NorthCarolina [born abt 1826]
    Martha A McSwain 31 F North Carolina [born abt 1839]
    Charles J McSwain 11 M North Carolina [born abt 1849]
    John A McSwain 9 F North Carolina [born abt 1851]
    Tom H McSwain 7 M North Carolina [born abt 1853]
    Edmond R McSwain 3 M North Carolina [born abt 1857]
    Sally A McSwain 10mos F North Carolina [born abt 1859]

    Ed's name  sometimes appears as Edward and sometimes as Edmond.  It ismore often Edward.  On his marriage record is is just Ed.  Find aGrave reports on his memorial that his name was Edmonrd.

    The birth state of the father on all children was first written as SC,then corrected to NC on all but Goldia. It appears the enumeratorfirst just mistakenly copied the birth state for the father from Ida'srecord, then missed correcting Goldia's record.

    In the 1870 census, Edmond and his younger brother George areenumerated in the household of their uncle Gabriel Washburn McSwain inColumbia County, Arkansas.  This seems to indicate that both George Aand Martha Ranlde McSwain died before 1870.  I find no record for themafter the 1860 census.

    1870 Federal Census, Columbia [Nevada] County, Arkansas, 8 July,Alabama Township, p 4, PO Falcon, Hse/Fam #32
    McSwain, Gabriel  53 M Teacher $600 Real Estate $500 Personal b NorthCarolina [born abt 1817]
    McSwain, Elizabeth 50 F North Carolina [born abt 1820]
    McSwain, Edward 14 M W North Carolina [born abt 1866]
    McSwain, George D 7 M W Arkansas [born abt 1863]

    A family researcher who is a descendant of George and Martha (Randle)McSwain confirms that Gaorge and Martha's three yougnest sons weretaken in by Gaorge's brother's after they died.

    "Minor M. McSwain, George A. McSwain's brother, was my 2ndgreat-grandfather.  I see that Minor took in Thomas M. after George &Martha McSwain died, and that his brother, Gabriel McSwain took in thetwo youngest boys."
