i may be 8 years late, but i would like to communicate with you re your connection to the thomas-catherine swann pair. my gr gr gr grandfather was named thomas swann with a birth- date about right for the "thomas " son named in the 1795 will. also an abram lowrance was involved in theadministration of the "estate" of my thomas. since one of the daughters married an abram lowrance there was likely some kind of a family connection. my thomas married rosannah short and after the death of thomas in 1822 moved to georgia with her three sons, james,john, and thomas.
