    The gravestone has her name as Harriet L McSwain.  There is considerable circumstantial evidence from the Padgett and McSwain families that Harriet is the daughter of Wiley and Lavinia Padgett.  Harriet's middle name may be Lavinia, which, besides being her mother's name,  was a popular name in the Padgett and McSwain lineages.  David Holden has their daughter Harriet listed as Harriet L, as does the 1870 census, matching the name on the gravestone of Harriet McSwain.

    The age of Harriet L McSwain and Harriet L Padgett is within a year, though her date of birth on the gravestone varies from those by about two years, which we often find in census ages, but matches and the movement of the two families together from North Carolina to Arkansas, and the matching of names and ages for spouses of the two families.
