    Lafayette County is the smallest Arkansas county in size and islocated southwest of Nevada County, the center for the McSwain clan insouthwest Arkansas, mostly around Emmet.  Lewisville is the County,Seat, so this is probably where Grover and Jessie got married.

    In the 1930 census, Grover is enumerated as G H McSwain, instead of GW, with his wife Jessie, living next door to G H's parents C D andParlee McSwain.  His father's name should be C E instead of CD.Perhaps the enumerator confused him with his cousins CD Sr and Jr(Charles Douglas).
