    ----------------------
    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 -- Ishould have her death date somewhere in my records -- probably in the1840s, he then married my g.g.g.grandmother Sarah L. Throckmorton.

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

    ------------------------
    Bonnie Mitchell McSwain was only in my McSwain line because she wasmarried to William Boyd, but I thought she looked like a little Indiangirl in the one pic.  Most people who see it usually agree.  Hermother's maiden name was Sizemore and her ancestors were said to havebeen with the Cherokee.

    I actually have a piece of the log cabin that David McSwain lived in,I've got it under my house, the cabin was called the Buck McSwainplace, it was down the Mt Sinai Church Rd. down past the church.  Mywife and I were down that way doing research and the man that toredown the cabin had the logs from it under a shed, he sawed me off apiece several feet long.

    I also have a copy of the book David McSwain from the Isle of Skyethat Eleanor Davis McSwain wrote, she has the same name as my wifeonly my wife spells Eleanor (Elenora), even the same maiden namethough.  We paid Eleanor a visit one year, she lived down in Macon,Ga.
