Samuel Swint moved to Chambers Co, AL in the mid 1830s and lived there until the mid or late 1840s when he moved to Tallapoosa Co, AL, where all his children were born.He spent approximately 20 years in Tallapoosa County.
Samuel Swint left Tallapoosa County, Alabama after the Civil War with his wife and family and a wagon train of about 20 wagons, with other relatives and perhaps some friends.They headed into Mississippi.At that timesouthern Louisiana was virtually impassable so even if they were intending to move to Texas, they would have taken this northern route.A sister of Samuel's, Susanna Swint, married Alexander Gilbert and they lived in Canton, Mississippi.Perhaps they went there but I have seen no evidence either way.I have so far never found my Swint ancestors in the 1870 census.They were not yet shown in Titus County, Texas.According to John Samuel Swint's account, the family stayed in Calhoun Co, MS, after Samuel was killed, until 1871, then moved on to Texas.I suspect they were missed in the 1870 census in Calhoun Co, MS.[John Samuel was the youngest son of Samuel Swint and Rebecca Cartledge.]
Near Calhoun City in Calhoun County, Mississippi, a stage driver lashed out at Sam's horse, apparently on purpose, and caused the horse to rear and Sam was thrown from the horse.He died four days later of injuries sustained in the fall.Presumably, Samuel Swint was buried in Mississippi.His son (my great grandfather) Frederic, at age 19, took over leadership of the wagon train.That was in 1867.According to John Samuel Swint (son of Samuel) the Swints stayed in Calhoun County, Mississippi for four years and headed for Texas in 1871.So they should be in the 1870 Calhoun Co, MS census, if it still exists.By 1874 when Rebecca Cartledge Swint passed away, the family was living in Titus County, Texas.
Frederic purchased 200+ acres of rich farmland about five miles west of Mt. Pleasant in Titus County.
Shown in the 1850 census in Tallapoosa County, AL are: Samuel Swint, 38, born in GA,
Rebecca, age 21, b. in SC
Sarah, age 2,b. in AL
Fedrick [Frederic], age 10/12, b. in AL
Jane Ruiy [maybe RAY], age 8, b. in GA
In the 1855 Alabama State Census, Samuel Swint ws shown in Beat 14 with 3 males under 21 (Frederic, age 7; Joseph, age 2; and one more, who?);1 male over 21, himself); 3 females under 21 (Sarah, age 6/7; Mary A.; Nancy, if her bd of 1857 is wrong), and 2 females over 21 (wife, Rebecca Cartledge & perhaps her mother or sister), in Tallapoosa Co, AL.This seems to indicate that perhaps the mother or sister of Rebecca Cartledge was living with them.
Apparently, Samuel was not in Chambers County, AL but a few years.He was there by 1838 in the village of Wickersville, now Denton, AL.Samuel was 14 years older than his wife.

Transcript of receipt from Samuel Swint:
Received of the Administrators of the Estate of Fredrick Swint, Sr. The sum of Four Hundred Dollars of my part of said Estate if I leave (unreadable) (unreadable) my part -- I am to pay back to said Administrators on a final settlement and if there is more than that coming to me they are to pay to me the amount over the four Hundred Dollars due me as a final settlement.this the 25 of September 1963.signedSamuel Swint
[on the copy in Mildred's book, it looks as if it might be Fedrick or Fredric with a middle initial joined and the signature looks somewhat better-written than the text.]
The route the SWINTs took from Alabama must havebeen the Tombigbee & Arkansas River Trail.It went from Montgomery, Alabama through Autauga, Chilton, Bibb Tuscaloosa, Fayette & Lamar Counties in Alabama, going northwesterly.Then almost due west through Monroe, Chackasaw, Calhoun (where Samuel Swint met his death), Yalobusha, Tallahatchie, Sunflower & Boliver Counties in Mississippi.
Note to me:Check Edgefield District, SC in the late 1820s, 1830s for Rebecca Cartledge Swint's family.
Rebecca is probably from the Cartledges who left Columbia County, Georgia early and moved to Edgefield County, South Carolina.There were two early Cartledges there in 1800, Samuel and Edmund, both with large families.In 1830, in South Carolina, John and Samuel Cartledge both showed a daughter under five.No Cartledges were shown anywhere in Alabama in 1840, two in 1850 -- Tandy in Chambers County and the others were in Tallapoosa.Tandy married Mary SWINT, daughter of James.The Tallapoosa Cartledges were in the home of James Morgan who had married Susan (b. ca. 1826 in South Carolina).
In James Morgan's home (1850 AL census for Tallapoosa County) were:
his wife Susan (Cartledge), b. 1826
Mary Cartledge, b. ca. 1799, SC(Susan's mother?)
Sarah Cartledge, b. ca. 1832 (Susan's sister?)
Amanda Crow, b. ca. 1818, SC (Susan's sister?)
Elizabeth Crow, b. ca. 1841, SC (Susan's niece?)
Sarah Crow, b. ca. 1846, SC (Susan's niece?)
An Edmund Cartledge is buried at Midway Cemetery, Bullock Co, AL, a Confederate soldier, b. 28 Sep 1834 and d. 27 Apr 1865.
Based on the above, we'd have this family:
_______ Cartledge m. prob. in SC to Mary _________ and they had these children (plus others?):
Rebecca Cartledge b. 1827, SC, m. Samuel SWINT
Susan Cartledge b. 1826, SC, m. James MORGAN
Amanda b. ca. 1818, SC, m. ________ CROW
(Amanda had daughters Elizabeth & Sarah CROW)
