SAMPLE/SWAIN
29 September 1999 FROM vidales@worldnet.att.net (Carol L. Vidales)

Soloman SAMPLE is a curiousity to say the least. Married at least twice, and apparently widowed quickly both times, he nonetheless fathered some 8 plus children by at least 5 other different women: Irena NEAL, Nancy SAWYER, Martha SWAIN, Milly ROUGHTON and Margaret BARNES. He seems to have had some standing in the community, and appears to have taken an active role in parenting the children he fathered. Indeed, one such child petitioned the court to have his surname changed to SAMPLE, stating that his father had been good to him. As best I can tell, in the 1860 census, Soloman has at least 6 of his illegitimate children (possibly 7) in his household. It would be interesting to know more about him and his story!!! Any information on the Swain children would be especially welcome.


SANDERLIN
27 December 2004 FROM dmphelps@nc.rr.com(Dennis Phelps)

I'm looking for information on "Munroe", or "Mero", or "Nero", or "Murray" SANDERLIN,(or Sandlin, Sanderling), born abt 1827, died before 1901. I believe all 4 names are for the same individual. Family lore states that he was from East Lake, Dare County, and is buried there in a marked grave. His wife was Elizabeth TWIFORD, born April 1829, died before 1901. I think that he is somehow related to Trimmigan SANDERLIN, but don't know how. At least 2 of his sons moved to Bertie County, probably after the Civil War. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I'm looking for info on Silas HASSELL b.1786 m.9 Feb 1819 to Mariah Ann 'Polly' SWAIN. Her parents are James & Edna (Roughton) SWAIN. I am wanting info on his children & who his parents were. I haven't been able to find him anywhere...I'm beginning to wonder if I may have his first name wrong. Please Help.

On the 1900 Census J. Warren and Matilda Swain are listed with 7 children. They had 9 and 8 are living. I'm trying to find out the names of the other 2. I have a possibility on one of them. On the census, the oldest son listed is James W. Swain. I found 2 marriages with J. Warren & Matilda Swain as parents. My problem is that I'm not sure which one is James W. The names on the marriage license's are (1) J. Walter Swain, (2) Wallis Swain. So, if I can find out which one of these two is James W. then the other one would be one of my missing children. Then that would leave me to find out the name of the child that was deceased by the 1900 census. Hope you can help. Thanks.

Joanna SWAIN married John Theodore NEWBERRY I in July 1786. Accoding to the Newberry book, Joanna's parents were Stephen SWAIN and Ann SPRUILL of Tyrrell Co. NC. I am looking for proof that Joanna was the daughter of Stephen SWAIN. I know there has been some confusion about Stephen SWAIN and I hope someone out there can help me.

In James Swain's (parents James & Elizabeth(Smithwick) Swain) Will dated 5 Feb 1806 it mentions granddaughters Rosinna & Marth Swain. Who are their parents? Also, can you clarify if the grandson Benjamin Swain mentioned in the same will is the son of Jeremiah Swain who apparently is deceased by the writing of this will. I would also appreciate any additional info on these grandchildren. Thanks!


SWAIN/LONG
3 March 2002 FROM cpschumann@cox.net(Pam Schumann)

Looking over John SWAIN's (parents John & Mary (CHESSON) SWAIN) Will dated 8 Feb 1765 it mentions a couple of grand daughters Kezia & Jemime LONG. As two of his daughter's (Jemima & Esther) married LONG men, who are their parents? Also, who was John married to and can you tell me who his daughters Priscilla & Hannah married and who his son John married? I am assuming that his son Samuel is deceased since he wasn't mentioned in the will. Do you know his death date? Any additional info that you could provide on all of the above would be appreciated. Thanks!

4 March 2002 FROM cpschumann@cox.net(Pam Schumann)

I was going over the Will of William MACKEY (who married Joanna SWAIN) dated 22 Oct 1765. In it he names 3 daughters (Mary, Hannah & Elenor)and 2 sons (Thomas & William). I was hoping that you could provide me with any dates and any spouses names. Also, mentioned in his Will are 3 young children which he provides for their maintaining and educating but their names are not mentioned. Can you provide me with their names? Thanks!

28 March 2002 FROM edswain@eastern.wvnet.edu(Eddie Swain)

Looking for information about the parents of my great-grandfather Edgar Lafayette SWAIN of Pasquotank County (b. 1866; d. c1928; m. Winnie WHITE of Pasquotank Co.). Edgar and Winnie's Marriage License dated July 1892 says that Edgar's parents are J--- Swain (living) and Nancy Swain (dead). Edgar was 26 y.o. on the Marriage License in 1892. I always thought the J--- was John, but it might be Jehu. An A. W. Swain witnessed the wedding. By 1906, this A. W. was married to a Martha and living in Norfolk, VA. Winnie's parents were Joshua and Elizabeth WHITE of Pasquotank County if that helps anyone make a link.
There is a John and Nancy (BARNES) SWAIN in the 1860 Tyrrell Co. Census, but I am not certain if they are the right John and Nancy since Edgar wasn't born until 1866, and there is no trace of John and Nancy in Tyrrell County in 1870. The only Edgar Swain in the 1870 Tyrrell Co. Census is too old (9 y.o.) and is living with a Davenport Family. Doubt that this Edgar is the same as my g-grandfather, but it could be . . . Any help would be appreciated. Thank you!


SWAIN/SPRUILL
25 July 2002 FROM vginny39@wmconnect.com(Virginia Morrisette)

3 February 2007 FROM calico@ctitech.com(Sharon Sherman)

I would like to know if anyone has any info on two daughters of Steven SWAIN and Priscilla PHELPS, that migrated to Washington Co., NC., then to Madison and Macoupin Co., IL. Need info on daughter Susan, b.1814, d.1832 or 1844, IL? Also Jane, b.1806, d.1844 NC or IL. My gggrandmother Susan SUTTON is possibly the daughter of one of these two. Susan went by the name of SUTTON, death certificate does not give mothers name, but lists father as David BRUCE, according to son Stephen. Believe Susan was raised by Nancy, another daughter of Steven and Priscilla, who married Joshua SUTTON, and settled in OmphGhent Township, Madison Co., IL. Susan "Sutton" m. Hiram DAVIS, OmphGhent Twsp., but lived and died in Dorchester, Macoupin Co., IL. Hiram DAVIS, was first married to Eliza, "Elizabeth" TARKINGTON, of NC, who died in 1865 and he later married Susan. Believe they might have been cousins. Susan always lived among the SWAINS, SUTTONS, SPRUILLS, and SAWYERS. Any info would be greatly appreciated. Would like to know if either of the 2 daughters was married to a David BRUCE, or possibly David Bruce SUTTON. Incidently, Susan SUTTON's only daughter was named Lavina. Also one daughter of Steven and Priscilla had that name. Could be family name for girls.

My name is Cal E GIBBS, my mother Mildred Adele LUPTON's mother was Sadie SWINDELL who lived outside of Columbia, NC. She originally married a LLUPTON and then married SWINDELL. I think it was J. Tom SWINDELL. My mother, Mildred LUPTON, was born in 1902. Her brothers were named Otis LUPTON and Cromwell LUPTON. I am 76 years old now and have not been back to Columbia in about 20 years. I know a Virginia Ann & Marion BRICKHOUSE that have recently moved back to Columbia and I believe Ida GIBBS, who lived in Columbia just passed away this year. Any information that you have on the above mentioned people would be greatly appreciated or if you could put me in the right direction as to whom to contact it also would be greatly appreciated. My father Cal GIBBS I think was born in Creswell ,NC. My grandmother on my fathers side was named Indiana GIBBS and her father was Robert Carson GIBBS. Looking forward to hearing from you.


SYKES
19 January 1998 FROM lion21@ecsu.campus.mci.net (Robert Allen Britton, Sr.)

I am searching for information on the family of Truxton SYKES who last lived in Tyrrell County during the 1850's. He was in Currituck County and Princess Anne County, Virginia during the 1860's. My great-grandfather's name was Truxton SYKES and I believe there is a connection between him and the above-mentioned Truxton SYKES. My great-grandfather was born in Tyrrell County and moved to Currituck County as a child. He was taken away from his mother when he was three because of mixed parentage. His mother was white and his father was an Indian. He was indentured to an Elizabeth CALLENDAR in 1871. If anyone has any info it would be appreciated.
