Hi. I am descended from David MCSWAIN Sr (Isle of Skye, 1700) and spouse Margaret SARGEANT (Ireland, 1702). Of particular note, the direct line to me runs from David Sr, to David Jr./Susanna HAMRICK, to William MCSWAIN (1762 Cleveland Co, died 1838 in Rutherford Co. and his spouse Judith MOORE, to Thomas MCSWAIN (1796)and his spouse Frances "Frankie" BRIDGES through their daughter Elizabeth MCSWAIN and her husband Hugh Kerr Roberts, Rutherford Co.
Noteably, I have justified all the links from me to Patriot William MCSWAIN (b. 1762). Something like 12 generations. As such, I have joined the Sons of the American Revolution.
Lots of you are my kin. By "proving" relationship to me or any other spot along the line to a DAR or SAR geneologist, you can join as well.
