Maybe Matilda is daughter of Hezekiah Doan, my ancestor. He lived in what's now Iredell Co, then Rowan Co, NC 1760-1790. Two daughters married two Swinfords. They AND Hezekiah moved to Harrison Co KY(then Bourbon Co)about 1791-1792. The Doan genealogy is documented in great detail in two published volumes. First one came on Mayflower. Variations of the name are Doane and Done. Your e-mail address indicates you are in central IN; I live on e. side of Indpls. Let me know if I can help further.

Have you found recorded or loose, original estate papers for
Hezekiah DOAN, who died about 1810 in Harrison Co., Kentucky? I hope that they might show if he was survived by his daughter Sarah, or name her children by her husband, Matthew VANDIVER, of Rowan Co. and Iredell Co., North Carolina. Iredell Co. deeds and powers of attorney suggest that Hezekiah left Rowan Co. about 1787 or 1788, and was in Kentucky in 1789; I do not know when he settled in the area that became part of Harrison Co. Please advise me of the published works you mentioned in our reply to Julie Payne.

Sorry, I just noticed your posting from some time ago. I believe the two-volume Doane family history is pretty common in genealogy depts of large public libraries. I have seen the same deeds, etc from Iredell Co and agree that Hez was the first of these intermarried families to move to Harrison Co. As you've probably seen, Matthew Vandiver appears on several land transfers, wedding witness, etc to Swinfords in Iredell Co. I think he moved to KY also. My g-g-g-g-grandfather Elisha S. and his older brother Joshua married two Hez daughters, Thankful and Mary. A later Hezekiah Doan is in the 1830 Census in mid-Missouri.

My g-g-g-g grandfather was Elisha Swinford who married Thankful Doane. Their daughter Mary "Polly" Swinford m. Hazel Lovelace and their daughter Savannah Lovelace married Alexander Stephens and their daughter Isabelle Stephens married Marion Riddle and their son Albert "Lee" Riddle is the father of my grandmother Hazel Marie Etta Riddle/Darnell/Gotts. The Swinfords, Lovelaces, Stephens and Riddles all ended up in Pendleton County, Kentucky. You and I are related through Elisha and Thankful.

Yup, same generation, too. Going on memory, I believe the Lovelaces were in Iredell Co., NC w/ the Swinfords and Lovelaces before moving over to KY. Let me know if you'd like the documentation on that.

Hi Mary,
My search has brought me to this 13 year old Post.
I believe my g-g-g-g grandparents were Elisha Swinford and Thankful Doane. I'm hoping this relates me to Stephen Hopkins, Mayflower. Any sources or suggestions you may have to back up my information would be greatly appreciated. Following is my line to Elisha and Thankful:
Daughter of Elisha/Thankful - Sarah (Sally) Swinford (1786) m Adam Carroll (1786),
Son of Sarah/Adam - Samuel Sanford Carrell (1823) m Permelia Ann McGrew (1827),
Daughter of Samuel/Permelia - Sarah Elizabeth Carrell (1854) m Henry Harrison Fletcher (1853),
Son of Sarah/Henry - Ora Otto Fletcher (1878) m Molly Jane Evans (1880),
Son of Ora/Molly - John Henry Fletcher (1918) m Arlene Dorothy Earthman (1919),
Son of John/Arlene - Paul Robert Fletcher (1942), that's me.
Be happy to share any info., history, stories with you. If you see any errors in my research, please point them out.
In hopes we are related,
