In certain sections of VA.WV and TN the dialect to this day can be misunderstood in translation. For example, my mother's name was Laura. In eastern tn, where she was raised, her name was pronounced laurie. In the census, the census taker took her named laurie, and wrote it down as it was pronounced, he heard Garry. Not Gary, but Garry. So, for the rest of history will see her name spelled Garry, but "daughter" checked on the census. I scratched my head on the name Aswine, realizing over the years of researching, I had never seen such a name. I am glad you are pleased with what has been found. Glad to help.
