You have another wife for Thomas Swearingen, other than Ruth and Mary? What name do you have and do you have documentation?
I only just now realized that John Ray born 1765-1770 could not be the John Ray you found in 1781. Here's what Barbara found: "John Ray was present in KY by 1800/01 when he appears in the Warren Co, KY tax list. He disappears from the Warren Co deeds (he was Justice of the Peace) in 1816 and from the KY state legislature, where he represented Warren Co (1803-1816), and appears in MO as delegate to the territorial legislature and to the 1820 constitutional convention in St Louis."
