    My father was Jack Osborne McSwain, he died in Pembroke Pines,Florida, his father was William Boyd McSwain, who was married toBonnie Mitchell, had 3 boys, she died and he remarried Mary Kiser,they had 2 girls.

    Next comes Osborne Benjamin McSwain, he was married to AmandaChilders, they were from down about Cherokee county S.C., Osborne'sfather was Thomas Asbury McSwain, mother Alice (Aly Ann) Carpenter,then comes Charles McSwain who was married to Luraner WashburnMcSwain, he and she had abt. 16 children together, she died, I shouldhave her death date somewhere in my records, probably in the 1840s, hethen married my g.g.g.grandmother Sarah L. Throckmorton.

    Charles's father was David McSwain, I think his mother was CatherineRobertson.
