We are searching for Swearingen information from middle Georgia and spreading out from the early 1900's and earlier. We would like to make contact with any other Swearingens who are researching their history in the Georgia area.
We are also searching for information about Mary Lessie Winter Murray Swearingen (1882 - 1959) who was married to Jessie Murray and living in Monks Corner, SC then to James Joseph Swearingen and moving to Dodge County then Colquitt County Georgia. Her parents were Amanda Long Winter and Pringle Winter. Her brother was Bub, sisters Ruth, Maggie, Lizzie, and Susie. We know by hearsay that she was part Native American.
We are also searching for information on Gabriel M. Farmer from Twiggs County, Georgia and died in the War Between the States. Would like to find his parents. In 1850 he was 19 and living in the household of a Williams family. Between 1850 and 1860 he was married to Amanda/Dolly and already had two to four children before 1860.
Will be happy to share information or research.
