Notes

  • Lewis/Louis Moore McSwain's first name is spelled variously bydifferent sources, and both ways in different entries in the HamrickData Pages.  Likewise his father's name is spelled variously indifferent sources.  On his death certificate the spelling Lewis isused.  His son George Pinkney McSwain was the informant.

    In 1860, this child was listed as Lewis M.  In 1870 he is calledMoore, clarifying that his name is Lewis/Louis Moore.

    The 1870 census shows all the children of this family born in SouthCarolina, but all other sources indicate North Carolina.  I am usingthe years of birth from the age of this census, but following othersources to report the birthplace as Rutherford County, North Carolina.

    In 1910, the head of the household is enumerated as their son Hugh.But since Hugh lived in Cleveland County, North Carolina, across theborder, in 1900, it appears that Hugh moved to his parents home afterhis wife Addie died.  In the 1920 census, Hugh's children enumeratedin 1910 are in the household of Lewis and Sarah in the same CherokeeTownship, while Hugh and his new wife Lizzie Fulton are living inLimestone Townhsip of Cherokee County.

    The grandchildren are all children of Lewis and Sarah's son Hugh,whose wife Addie Sherer died before the 1910 census, probably in thebirth of the last child Roy.  He has remarried before 1920, and isenumerated with his new wife Lizzie (Elizabeth Adeline Fulton), inLimestone Township of Cherokee County, South Carolina.  By 1930, Lewisis a widower and is living with his daughter Avalona Carroll, still inCherokee Township, Cherokee County, South Carolina.
