Hello, I am seeking information on: Elizabeth Swearington born July 16 1868 in Johns Mills Missouri Died April 20 1944 in Bakersfield California
According to her death cert. which I have a copy of her parents are: John Swearington born in Missouri and Mary it does not list a last name or birth place for the mom she is said to be a Choctaw native american.
Elizabeth married Edward Leander Clayton in 1889, in 1900 she and her family lived in Young Co. Texas and 1940 monterey CA
I really need information on her parents or her previous to her marriage to Edward. As well as her parents, there are several "marys" listed on the dawes rolls but we really have no way of narrowing it down. Although according to records and family information I believe Mary was born in either Missouri or Kentucky.
A Bee Jones also made a post about this family in the "swearingen" category, I have tried to email her but her email is no longer valid, I would love to be in contact with her or someone who knows the information she has. It was thought her parents were the Swearingens but according to the paper trail and such her parents were the swearingtons
