Swearingin, William Cheek
Comments: It appears that William and his first wife (name unknown) left Burke County, North Carolina around 1811 shortly after they were married and went to Jackson County, Tennessee where their children were born and it is believed where the first wife died. William seems to have made a trip to Lauderdale County, Alabama in 1822 to marry his second wife Polly and brought her to Jackson County, Alabama. By 1831 William and Polly had moved to Jackson County in Alabama .[ 1820 census, Jackson Co. TN; 1830 census Lauderdale Co. AL; 1840 & 1850 census, Jackson Co. AL] After William died Polly, his second wife, moved with some of her children from Jackson County, Alabama to Marshall County, Alabama. William and his first wife issued Richard and Samuel. William and his second wife, Polly, issued female, Mary, Ferney, Joseph, Eliza, John and David,
b. 1790 in Burke Co. NC
occ. Farmer
d. 1850-1860 in Jackson or Marshall Co. AL

Williams parents were Richard Cheek Swearingin and Mary Penley. This branch of the Swearingens generally spelled their name with an "i" , Swearingin. Details of this and other Swearingens can be found in Karel Whyte's book on the Swearingens....she can be reached at to buy her book. ....Hope this helps....Jack
