POLLY ANN (MRS. BARNEY) SWAIN

Posted: 15 Nov 2013 8:35PM GMT
Classification: Query
Surnames: HUTCHINSON, HIGHTOWER, DAZEY, GILMARTIN, KILMARTIN, MINTON and MILLER
POLLY ANN SWAIN WAS A YOUNGER SISTER OF MY GREAT GRANDMOTHER MARY FRANCES "FANNIE" HUTCHINSON BRADY OF GRANBURY, HOOD COUNTY, TEXAS .
THE 1870 HOOD COUNTY TEXAS FEDERAL CENSUS AT ENTRY #142 LISTS ELIZIA (ELIJAH) MILLICAN AGE 60, SUSAN (NEE: SUSA ANN HIGHTOWER BORN IN LAURENS COUNTY GEORGIA IN 1836 DAUGHTER OF EPHRAIM AND ANNA CURRY HIGHTOWER) AGE 28, FANNY AGE 14, POLLY ANN AGE 12, MARTHA or "MATTIE" AGE 8 . THE 1880 HOOD COUNTY CENSUS LISTS A SON FRED or ALFRED .
SUSA ANN HIGHTOWER WAS MARRIED TO JAMES L. HUTCHINSON IN AUSTIN COUNTY AT BELLVILLE, TEXAS IN FEBRUARY 1856 IN THE AUSTIN COUNTY TEXAS MARRIAGE RECORDS . MARY FRANCES OR FANNIE WAS BORN IN DECEMBER, 1856 at COMMANCHE PEAK POST OFFICE, NOW ACTON, TEXAS, THEN A PART OF JOHNSON COUNTY TEXAS . A FAMILY LEGEND IS THAT HUTCHINSON WAS KILLED WHILE BUILDING A LOG JAIL AT MILLSAP ?
OTHER FAMILY MEMBERS BELIEVE HUTCHINSON WAS KILLED DURING THE CIVIL WAR .
MARY FRANCES HUTCHINSON WAS MARRIED TO CHARLES BRADY (BORN MARK WEBSTER DAZEY IN COLUMBIANA COUNTY, OHIO in 1847) AUGUST 26, 1872 AT GRANBURY, HOOD COUNTY, TEXAS BY SQUIRE SEARS .
BARNEY WILSON SWAIN, POLLY's SON WS BORN AT GRANBURY, HOOD COUNTY, TEXAS.
THE GARRISON TREE LISTS BARNEY's MOTHER AS POLLY ANN VAUGHN. HER MAIDEN NAME WAS HUTCHINSON . SHE MAY HAVE BEEN MARRIED TO A VAUGHN BEFORE SWAIN ? HER MONUMENT IN THE OAKLAND CEMETERY AT WEATHERFORD SHOWS POLLY ANN'S BIRTH YEAR AS 1867 . THE 1870 HOOD COUNTY TEXAS CENSUS WOULD INDICATE SHE WAS BORN IN 1858 SINCE SHE WAS SHOWN AS AGE 12 IN 1870 .
MY MATERNAL GRANDMOTHER BESSIE HELEN BRADY LANGHAM (1897-1968) TALKED ABOUT HER COUSINS BARNEY AND VERA SWAIN AT WEATHERFORD . THEY WERE BORN AT GRANBURY . MARTHA or "MATTIE" MARRIED A GILSTRAP OR DUNLAP AND THEY SETTLED IN OKLAHOMA / INDIAN TERRITORY . NO ONE KNEW ANYTHING ABOUT FRED, THE BROTHER . POLLY DIED DECEMBER 31, 1919 . I HAVE A COPY OF HER DEATH CERTIFICATE THAT SHOWS HER FATHER TO HAVE BEEN A "MILLIKEN" (FOR MILLICAN). I BELIEVE HER FATHER WAS JAMES L. HUTCHINSON . I HAVE A PHOTO OF POLLY AND FANNY AS YOUNG GIRLS . ONE OF POLLY'S EYES IS "DROOPED" AND SHE MAY HAVE HAD A CANCEROUS GROWTH IN HER EYE THAT WOULD ACCOUNT FOR HER RELATIVELY EARLY DEATH .
I WANTED TO POST and SHARE THIS INFORMATION AS I AM THE ONLY ONE IN MY FAMILY WHO HAS AN INTEREST IN FAMILY HISTORY AND NO ONE KNOWS MUCH OF THE INFORMATION THAT I NOW SHARE .
