    Note that Margaret is reported as Russel's grandmother.  But in the1900 census, she is reported as the mother of William Holden, EthelHolden McSwain's grandmother, not Russel McSwain's.

    John Holden is Ethel's brother.  So it is unclear why he is reportedas Russel's nephew.  It would be possible if John's mother Jane was asister of Russel.  I do not know Jane's maiden name, and cannot find aJane McSwain among these families that we might connect here.  Itcould also be just an enumerator error as the relationships ofMargaret Wigley.
