My brother's hair was red when he was
young. Hmmm.

I'm not sure where my aunt got this Swilley
information, but there's a lot of paperwork
to it , including land transactions between
the various ones.
E-mail me, and I'll tell you where you
can contact my aunt.
I am a little uncomfortable putting her
address out where anyone could see.

This information is also new to us, but
apprarently , these Swilley researchers
have been at it for a long while.

I'm not sure if it's okay to post
this, but here's the possible family :

Stephen Swilley/Souille'

b Oct 12, 1728 Manakintown , VA (son
of Nicholas Souillie/Sulie and his first
wife, name unknown (not Francoise L'Orange))

m @1747 Craven Co, NC ? to ? Parker ?

d 1756 Craven Co, NC


Children of Stephen Souille' :

1 Solomon
2 John b Craven Co, NC m Elizabeth Isler
a. Mary Elizabeth "Polly"
b. John Jr
My Elizabeth Swilley (m Allen Stewart
(Kershaw Co, SC - Tuscaloosa , AL)
was probably the daughter of John , Jr
and his wife Elizabeth (Payne ???)
c. Pernilly
d. Penelope
e. Jane

3. Samuel b Craven Co, NC m Sarah ? d Liberty Co, GA
a. Reason Franklin m Mary Terrell
b. Samuel E m Mary Carter
c. Lucena "Lucy" m Josiah Terrell
d. Lavinia
e. Celia m Eli Bradley
f. Carnick
g. Setliff m1 Sarah Williams m2 Malinda Little

4. Nicholas
a. ? Samuel
b. ?Jaredo/Jaredore
c. ?Sarah

5. Stephen (listed as having "Indian Depredation Papers . Does anyone know what
that means ?)
a. ?Zenas
b. ?William
c. ?Elijah
d. ?Emanuel
e. ?John

6. Sarah m William Payne

7. Zenas/Zeno
a. Lydia E m Jacob Koonce Jr
b. Stephen
c. Sarah m ?Benjamin Griffin?
d. Caty


I hope this helps.
One interesting thing I found myself in
a French-English dictionary was the
verb "souiller ," meaning "to soil
or defile."

Would that be the derivation of the name ?
