I think you're right Marsha!I have been in contact with a relative in Indiana and he me that he use to visit aunt Ruth when he was young.And that she lived in or near Turkey Run State Park in Indiana but didn't know if she was still alive...now we know! He also told me that when he was a young boy that he was told that my dad had two brothers namedFloyd and Donald Swails.Floyd was a homicide detective in Indianapolis and Donald was a fire chief in Carmel Indiana. I have searched and searched. There is a Floyd Swails that was a homicide detective but Ernest wasn't his dad and the same with Donald, he was a fire chief in Carmel but I find no proof that he would be my dad's brother. I think they are probably cousins.Maybe in my dad's teenage years, he lived with thier famliy and just claim being brothers!
