I am still hoping somebody would be kind enough to search the Bolivar newspaper for two obituaries.
William Swink who died 22 Oct. 1906
Mary (Ballou) Swink who died 6 Feb. 1912
This couple emigrated from Pulaski Co., KY before the Civil War. His half-brother, Horatio "Rash" Offit Swink was already in the state.
I am descended from William and Mary Swink through their son, James L. Swink. James married Frances Susannah Price. The family of Miss Price also emigrated from Pulaski Co., KY.
James and Susan Price emigrated to Yakima Co., WA in 1914.
