I am the granddaughter of Forrest Swearingen, who was born around 1895 in Pennsylvania or West Virginia. His first wife (my grandmother) was Evelyn Mahaney, who he had two sons with, Wade and Robert (my father). In around 1920, he disappeared but apparently ended up in Oregon, where he died in 1969? I believe he remarried.

Looks like you might want to check out the Swearingen-Madden Tree owned by bellabear5000 at http://trees.ancestry.com/tree/46606909/person/6570448686.

It shows Forest Dayton Swearingen, born 20 Aug 1894 in West Virginia, died 24 Sep 1964 in Salem, Marion, Oregon. He married Evelyn Mahaney (1891-1924).

Forest lived in Dry Fork, Tucker, WV. They had another son, Robert Thomas, born in Pittsburg, PA 8 Aug 1918, died 14 Jun 1997 in LA CA.

Hope this helps.

My hubby's a direct descendant of Garret Von Swearingen.

Hi:

Thanks for your response! I actually have this info; Robert Swearingen was my father. I was trying to find out what happened to my grandfather between the time he moved to Oregon and remarried until his death in 1964. I don't know if he had any more children and would love to find out if I have any distant cousins I don't know about. :)

I've had good results using Rootsweb message boards. You post a message asking for help, and other genealogy buffs help out. Try here:
http://www.orgenweb.org/marion/marlist.htm

and local genweb sites, which often have local resources not found on bigger sites:

Just today, I got information on a grandfather--who I've been unable to find for years, from a posting I made on findagrave.com.

Who knows--you might have relatives yet undiscovered.

Good luck, and do let me know if either resource helps.
