Seeking info on Thomas Jefferson Swearingen born Aug 20, 1876 and A. Jackson Swearingen born abt 1874. They are listed as orphans in the household of Noah S Dixon and wife
Rachel Wright Dixon on the 1880 Pulaski County Census.
Thomas Jefferson and A. Jackson later used the surname of
Dixon.
Thanks Bernice

It is my understanding that these two lads were adopted by the Dixons and took the surname Dixon, and can be traced under that name. I was in touch with a decendent a couple of years ago. She did not know who their parents where. Suppostedly Mr Dixon found them at the train depot and brought them home. my guess is that their mother might have been Maranda Swearingen who did not marry but had one child or Sarah M. Swearingen who did not marry but had four known children . Both of these women were living in Pulaski County, GA. Who knows Mr Dixon might have been the father....Jack

Hey Bernice,

Maybe Jack's response (below) is acurrate as my DNA shows that my ancestors came from around Ireland and Swearingen is Dutch/German origin.

Did your grandfather allude to anything such as Noah being the father?

Thanks and regards,
Winford

Hi Jack,

Your story is interesting as I am the great grandson of TJ Dixon (Swearingen). I had my DNA tested by the Genographic Project by National Geographic and the results showed my ancestors came from somewhere near Ireland and the surname Swearingen seems to be a Dutch/German descent.

Do you have more details about this story or more details about Noah or the mother of TJ and Jackson Swearingen?

Thanks and regards,
Winford Dixon Jr.
