My Swearingen ancestor went to Arkansas by 1850 and he dies there in 1855.
There is only one other Swearingen family in Arkansas and I’m wondering if anyone knows him??
1850 Prairie Twp, Carroll Co AR
Samuel Swearingen 25 farmer b ND
Prudence Swearingen 12, b TN
Elizabeth Swaringen, 2, b Ark
Victoria Swearingen, 1/12, b Ark
By 1860 the family is at the same location but additional family members look like this:
Emily PK 6 yrs b Ark
Calodenia, 3 yrs b Ark
Columbia, 1 yr b Ark
Also listed is:
Jefferson Moody,21, b NC
Mahaley Moody, 24, bArk
Abram Beech, 13, b Ark
By 1870 the family looks like SUARINNGANN
By 1880, its"
Since these are the only Swearingen's in Arksans, I'm wondering how they might be related.
If you can help, let me know. Thanks.
