Notes

  • Susannah Morris was the second wife of John McSwain.  John's firstwife Judith Moore died in 1824, and he married Susannah in 1840.

    There are several different reports of a birth date for Susannah.  W DFloyd's transcription from the McSwain Cemetery reports the markerreads: "McSwain, Susan 96 years [means b abt 1775]  March 1, 1871 w/oJohn."
    --  http://www.rfci.net/wdfloyd/cemm5.html

    This birth date differs by 10-15 years from other sources!

    The age reported on the gravestone is suspicious, since in the 1860census, she was reported as 75 years old!  This would mean she wasborn in 1785.  Perhaps Mr Floyd misread the age.  I know numbers onold gravestones can be hard to decipher.  If the age was 86, thiswould match the age in the 1860 census.  In 1850, Susannah is reportedas 64 years old, meaning born about 1786.  This would make her 8-9years older than John, whose birthday is reported by family sources as28 August 1794.  In 1850 John's age was 55.  In the genealogy MyMaternal McSwain Ancestors, Ran Raider says Susannah also was born in1794.
