There is a truckload of Swints out there! As a matter of fact the swint name goes way back. Are you black and do you feel this was a name taken by you ancesters? If so, its possible only in the general since as many black slaves took or were given the last name of their owners. I spoke with my mother on this subject and she is a Swint. She does not know of Swints that held slaves. However, she was born in 1934 and all she remembers is her parents having servants and laborers that were paid. I must admit this was an uncomfortable line of questioning for me to give as it will be for you to receive, but I'm willing to speak all I know on the subject (which is not much)and be educated on it as well.
