Alice A. Brinson Farmer Swan, 1842-1910, Jefferson Co., GA
Posted by: Janice Thurmond (ID *****0857) Date: August 13, 2005 at 08:54:17

Seeking information on Alice A. Brinson, daughter of Moses Brinson, Jr., of Jefferson Co., GA, who married 1st Levin Farmer, who died in 1864 in Confederate Army. She later married Thomas E. Swan. She & Thomas were members of Ways Baptist Church in Stellaville and were buried in the cemetery there.

Thomas E. Swan b. 4 Sept 1834 GA; d. 4 Oct 1899.
Alice B. Swan b. 26 April 1842; d. 8 April 1910.

When did Alice A. Brinson marry Levin Farmer?

When did Alice A. Brinson Farmer marry Thomas E. Swan?

I have found a Thomas E. Swan in the 1880 Jefferson Co., GA census, whose wife is listed as "Elizabeth," age 33 or 35. With them are children Robert L., son, age 16; William A., son, age 13; Carter E., son, age 11; Anner M., daughter, age 5; Thomas, son, age 3; Clement E., son, age 3 months.

In the Minutes Book of Ways Baptist Church, Thomas E. Swan was recorded as having been received into membership in August 1888 by "experience and baptism." He became very active in the business activities of the church immediately following his joining.

Alice Swan is found in the 1900 Jefferson Co. census on page 36B, age 58, widow, owning own farm, free of mortgage. In place for number of children borne and living, a zero was in each block, then marked through and a "1" written above zero. With her is recorded John Swan, son, age 20, born May 1880, farmer.

Was the "Elizabeth Swan" in the 1880 census with Thomas Swan Alice A. Brinson? Were any of the children listed in the 1880 census those of Alice? What happened to John Swan, age 20, in the 1900 Jefferson Co. census, listed as Alice's son?

I would appreciate any help in understanding the life of Alice A. Brinson!

Janice, Marietta, GA
