To : Les Cochran - re: Wharton Co., TX / Cochran & Swearingen family

I have some info on a son of my Great-Grandfather (Richard Judson SWEARINGEN). This son, was James L. R. SWEARINGEN. He was born, Oct. 1859 in LaPlace, Macon Co., AL to Richard Judson & Catherine F. (ROBERTS) SWEARINGEN. The family moved to Navarro Co., TX in 1872. James L.R. married Miss M. E. "Bettie" LYND in Corsicanna, Navarro Co., TX on 19-July-1877 and died before 22-Apri-1933, because he is not mentioned in the obit of his sister, Adaline Love (SWEARINGEN) STORY, who died on that date.

Another cousin thinks that he died about 1930 in or around Wharton. I have not looked into this yet.

I show that he had at least two sons and might have had some daughters. His first son, John LYND, was born about 1879, probably in Navarro Co., TX.

I'm looking for any info on James L.R. SWEARINGEN who may have died in Wharton Co., TX
