My gggrandfather was Spencer Coleman Swain born about 1845 in TN with both parents born in TN per the 1880 census.
At LDS there is a William Swain born <1819> married to a Nancy Webb born <1823> both in Wilson County, Tennessee.
It has them married 3 Feb 1844 in Wilson County, Tennessee.
In the 1850 census in Dyer County, TN there is a:
Nancy Swain born about 1825 TN
SC Swain born about 1845 TN
JH Swain born about 1848 TN
They are living next to a Webb family.
In the 1860 census in Wilson County, TN there is a:
Nancy T Swain born about 1827 TN
Coleman Swain born about 1845 TN
William Swain born about 1848 TN
Sarah Swain born about 1852 TN
Martha Swain born about 1855 TN
Delana Swain born about 1858 TN
There is a William Swain born about 1820 in the 1850 census and 1830 in the 1860 census in Wilson County. I'm thinking that it is the same William with a mistake in the years.
In the 1850 census he is shown as William W and is living with William M, Nancy and Joseph M Swain.
In the 1860 census he is living with the Francis and Nancy Dillard family. Francis Dillard married a Nancy Swain and
Francis's brother Andrew Jack married a Rebecca Swain.
His brother William Henry married a Kate Swain.
William W Swain is the son of William M Swain born about 1782 in North Carolina.
They are all in Wilson County in the 1850 census.
Spencer Coleman Swain married Susan Caroline Miller. They are in Wise County, TX in the 1880 census.
Their children are:
Clara Hadassah born 1880 TX
Sarah Ann born 1883 TX
William Abram born 1886 TX
James S. born 1889 TX
Millard Lee born 1895 Indian Territory
I'm thinking that Spencer Coleman's father's name is William because they named their first son William Abram and her father's name was Abram.
Does anyone know what happened to the William W Swain and if he married Nancy Webb? There are a lot of holes and questions. I'm wondering if anyone has any information that might help. Thank you very much.
