Also SWOPE connects to GWINN.
I'm from the ROGERS line and I'm trying to find out what the connection is to all of them below.
"This indenture witnesseth that on the 6th day of May 1870 A A
Swope filed his petition in equity in the clerks office of the Clinton
Circuit Court against Sylvester E. Swope Aseneth McCullum Eliza
Easow Esaw her husband Malinda Hardwick John Hardwick her
husband James _ Swope R S swope G H Swope J D Swope George
Swope James _ Swope Hiram F Rogers Martha Hurt Benne Hurt her
husband James East Florence East and the unknown heirs of Joseph
Swope _ children and heirs of George Swope desceand allegeing in his
said petition that the said George Swope the ancestor of the defendants
did seize and possess of two certain tracts or parcels of land........."
This was VERY hard to read - some guessing.
R. S. (Rufus), G.H. (Grandison), and J.D. (Jonathan) are sons of George
Sylvester E. and George moved to Ala - I've located a Sylvester
descendant , George Christopher Tate.
But the others mentioned are a mystery!
