  • The entry in the 1920 census under the name Cora E Jones appears to befor Connie Louise Jones.  The entry for the child of this familymatching Cora's age is Connie in the 1930 census.

    In April 2008, Connie's son Kenneth Wirt McSwain contacted me byemail, giving me some information on his mother and her marriage toWirt Barnard McSwain.  Kenneth says his mother was born in Ethel(Prairie Township, Arkansas County) and is still living at age 88, nowin Sherwood, Arkansas (a suburb of North Little Rock, in PulaskiCounty).  In August Ken sent me more family data.  This gives hismother's full name as Connie Louise.

    With this information I was able to make sense of an entry I had foundsome time before in the Arkansas Marriage Index, indicating a marriageof Wirt B McSwain to Connie Jones in 1938.  I had not been able todetermine who that Connie Jones was.  Then in one email message KenMcSwain referred to his grandfather Jim Jones.

    Arkansas, County Marriages Index, 1837-1957

    Spouse's Residence: Ethel, Arkansas, Arkansas
    Marriage 20 Aug 1938 Arkansas County

    With this clue I then was able to find Connie and her parents Jamesand Elizabeth in the 1930 census for Prairie Township, ArkansasCounty, Arkansas.

    1930 Federal Census, Arkansas County, Arkansas, 25 April, PrairieTownship, District 15, page 8B, Ethel and Chute Rd, Hse #153, Fam #154

    Only later did I find information indicating that the 1920 censusentry appeared to be the same person.
