Other facts


Married Henry Durward MCSWAIN


  • Lois Marie Dodson is reported as the wife of Henry Durward McSwain intwo family genealogies, and is the sole wife.  These genealogiesprovide no documentation.  I have not found any documentation of Loisas Henry's wife, but have found many documents and records confirminghis wife as Leona V, but I have not discovered her maiden name.  Insearching for further information about Lois Dodson, I have found onlythe 1910 census of her, in Elk City, Oklahoma, the home of the McSwainfamily.  She is only 4 years old here.
