McSWINE Seeking information on the John McSWINE, who in 1808 while living in Wilson Co., TN, bought 432 and 1/2 acres of land in Humphreys Co. A John McSwine was listed as one of the first settlers of Humphreys Co. and in one source it said that he and his family survived the "McSwine Flood of 1814", presumbably because of the overflowing of the Duck River. In 1819 there is a record of a John McSWINE, JR. receiving 200 acres on Duck River from his father John McSWINE, SR. This may be the John McSWINE who died in Williamson Co. in 1815. In an 1820 census of Humphreys Co. there is a John McSWIM and he is still there in 1830. Using information from these two censuses, he would have been born 1800- 1894. If the John McSWINE of Humphreys Co. was the son of the John McSWINE who died in 1815 in Williamson Co., he had siblings: Mary McSWAIN who married Wiley P. MANGUM and lived in Hardin Co., TN; Isaac E. McSWAIN who moved from TN to IN; William H. McSWAIN who moved from TN to TX; Sarah McSWAIN who married Terril C. WHITE and moved from Hardin Co. to MO and then to AR; and, Edmund McSWAIN who moved from Wayne Co., TN to IN. Any information on the McSWINE/McSWAIN family of Humphreys Co. would be appreciated.
