    Julius McSwain's wife is listed in the 1880 census as Viney.  This isa nickname for Levina (Lavina) or Lavinia.  The surroundingcircumstances and ages lead to the impression that Julius' wife Vineyis Levina Padgett, daughter of Wiley and Lavinia (also reported asLevina, Lavina) Padgett.

    Several members of the Padgett and McSwain families married each otherover two generations.  Lavinia herself is a McSwain.  Another daughterof Wiley and Lavinia, Martha Elizabeth, married a brother of Julius,Phillip K.

    Their sister Harriet L also married one of the McSwain brothers,George B.  The two families were living close together in NorthCarolina, moved to Tennessee together, although living a few countiesapart in the 1870 census, and then settled in the same location inArkansas.
