Looking for proof of parents of John R. Swearingen b 1798 who 1st married Mary (Polly) Baxter in 9/04/1818 Howard Co., MO. Mary died before 1840 and John remarried.
Children of John and Mary were probably - William B. b @1818, John, Lemuel, Henry, & Joe. Maybe John and Mary also had a daughter.
John may have been a brother or son of William D. Swearingen b 1770.
Thank you for any help.
