Surnames: Carter, Swearingen, Taylor, Liptrap, Smith
I am seeking assistance. I am helping a friend find his family. I am searching for Carter and Swearingen relations.

Unfortunately, no one in the family remembers much of either side so I am kind of flying blind now.

Thanks in advance for any help!!

I've heard tales of the Carters all my life. Known a few of them, Liptraps too. Mattie lived across the road from me growing up on Green Valley Farm.

My grandparents Bill and Libby Ingram knew them well.

You can contact William (Bill) Ingram in Millboro on Pig Run Road. Have to look him up in the 997 exchange if you want to call him. He can help you out with a place to start. He'd appreciate the company, I'm sure.

You can likely find some burial places at Green Valley Church Cemetery, and Rehobeth Church Cemetery in Millboro. I know Swearingins are buried at Rehobeth (on Pig Run Road). Some are collateral lines in my tree, but I haven't tracked them much. Grandaddy's late sister, Lillian, married a Swearingin.

You mentioned Mattie Swearengin living across from you growing up. Mattie Swearengin was my great grandmother. You probably knew my grandmother Maude Elizabeth.

Is there any help you can give me on the research.

Thanks

Actually that was Mattie Liptrap, she died in the 1980s and I believe she might be buried at the Green Valley Church cemetery. I never knew her husband, I believe he was deceased well before my time.

She did have a son, Glenn, who was a diabetic. Glenn eventually married and moved into a house by the old Jane Colby plant just east of Millboro (I think it is now a factory that makes raincoats or something like that, maybe called "CoolDri"). Glenn had worked for VDOT.

Anyway, Glenn died a few years after Mattie did and I don't know where he is buried.

Mattie was a sweet old lady. Very graceful, old-fashioned, and an excellent cook. I best remember her orange marmalade - which to this day I have been unable to find any that compares.

She had long hair that at one time had been blonde. She always wore it up in a bun on the crown of her head. I remember her and grandma always talked everyday on the phone.

I don't know what Mattie's maiden name was, so I'm sorry that I can't confirm that it was Mattie Swearingin. I only knew her as Mattie Liptrap.

I seem to remember that further down the road from GreenValley toward Windy Cove Church there was an old lady who lived down over the hill in a 2 story house and I think her name may have been Mattie Swearingin - is it possible that may be to whom you are referring?

I know my grandmother knew her and remember going there to visit occasionally before she died (I think she died sometime in the 1980s) but I don't remember her all that well. I remember that after she died there was an auction at her house.

Later on, one of the Booth girls married her high school sweetheart and I think they bought the property and built a house near the road above where that old homeplace used to stand (this is just further past the Plecker house on the right hand side of the road as you drive toward Windy Cove from Green Valley).

Jessie, Charles and Cora were my grandparents, mothers' side. My mothers' name Rita Gay Swearengin married Thomas J. Hodge. Moms' sisters, Dema married Richard Hodge, children Dallas, Jerry, Therman, etc. Mom's sister Nita married a Plecker. Moms' sister Mae married Joe Carter and Mila, Joe Lee and other brothers and sisters lived in Deerfield, VA.You said you would ask Dallas next time you see him about these people. Are you in the Swearengin, Carter, Plecker or the Hodge family? I've done research on Hodge and Swearengin and need more on Swearengin!!!Thanks, Rod Hodge
