Married George A MCSWAIN

Notes

  • Many features of this couple in Laurel Mississippi match George AMcSwain, son of George Washington McSwain and his wife Hannah McSwain(maiden name). in Cleveleand County, North Carolina.  After findingseveral later records, I found the 1900 census, which brought thisidentity into question.  This census enumerates George and Charityalready married and in Laurel, Mississippi, in 1900.

    George A in Cleveland North Carolibna was reported in the 1900 censuswith his mother still in Cleveland County, North Carolina.  It seemslikely the George A McSwain who was maried to Charity (maiden nameunknown) in Laurel is not Georege and Hannah's son.  I have notidentified this couple further.
