New info. I have the 1880 census on CD so it's easy to find things. I believe your Henry Swann was in the household below. You will notice that his race was given as MU (mulatto) which possibly lends credence to your stories of his children "passing."

1880 Census
Census Place: District 731, Campbell, Georgia
