217 This is based on an internet post by Detia Roe dated 10 Sep 2005 that lists Robert Swindell (b ~ 1775-1774, d ~ 16 Apr 1823 – May 1823) and Sarah Swindell were Elizabeth’s parents. This post also states that Sarah’s maiden name was Sarah “Sally” Emory (b ~ 1760, d ~ 1820) Hyde County, NC. There is also information pertaining to Elizabeth Swindell’s father and mother based on Clampett Family Centre family tree posted at Ancestry.com (Wyndham Clampett) on Feb 6 2003; source: Linda Livingstone. The post was as follows:
“I don't yet have "documentation" on Elizabeth Swindle, but I do have information from a gedcom I downloaded from Ancestry.com. The gedcom is from Charles Swindle, and I have found both good, solid information and complete junk in it. It will however give you a place to start.

Elizabeth "Polly" Swindle, b. 10 Jul 1795, Hyde Co., NC; d. 17 Sep 1874, Warren, Huntington Co., IN

m. John Hines Swaim, b. 28 Feb 1797, Asheboro, Randolph Co. NC; d. 3 Feb 1896, West Jefferson, Madison Co., OH (said to be from Warren Independent 26 Jan 1895)

Elizabeth's parents were Robert Swindle, b. abt 1785, Hyde Co., NC; d. 16 Apr 1823-May 1823, Hyde Co., NC

and Sarah "Sally" Emory, b. abt 1760, Hyde Co., NC; d. abt 1820, Hyde Co., NC

Robert's parents were Joseiah Swindle, Sr. and Esther Balance, my 5g grandparents.



Hope this will give you a starting place, anyway”

218 Elizabeth Swindell’s parents were Robert and Sarah Swindell based on Detia Roe information posted at Rootsweb to Linda Livingstone on 10 Sep 2005 as follows: “Elizabeth "Polly" Swindle, b. 10 Jul 1795, Hyde Co., NC; d. 17 Sep 1874, Warren, Huntington Co., IN m. John Hines Swaim, b. 28 Feb 1797, Asheboro, Randolph Co. NC; d. 3 Feb 1896, West Jefferson, Madison Co., OH (said to be from Warren Independent 26 Jan 1895) Elizabeth's parents were Robert Swindle, b. abt 1785, Hyde Co., NC; d. 16 Apr 1823-May 1823, Hyde Co., NC and Sarah "Sally" Emory, b. abt 1760, Hyde Co., NC; d. abt 1820, Hyde Co., NC Robert's parents were Joseiah Swindle, Sr. and Esther Balance, my 5g grandparents.” The parents of Elizabeth are also validated by the Will of Robert Swindell.

219 Information regarding the parents of Elizabeth Swindell and the transcript of the Will of Robert Swindell is based on the Swindell Family page on the North Carolina Genealogy web site maintained by Diane K. Mason.

220 The Swaim Family Record lists their marriage date as July 16, 1816.

228 Article describing John H. Swaim's life and reunion with his children from Warren Impendent dated January 26th 1895 and provided to me by Linda Livingstone on October, 2005.

229 Information regarding Elizabeth Swindell’s father based on Ancestry.com records. Original source was Linda Lewis Livingston, researcher.

230 John H. Swaim obituary based on Warren Independent newspaper, Saturday, February 16, 1896. Obtained from the Clampitt family centre web site.

231 John H. Swaim’s date of birth based on Swaim Family Record and validated by Swaim-Tysen Family book, Page 324 that said John H., bn 28 Feb 1797, d 17 Sep 1874; md 16 July 1816 to Elizabeth Swindell. However, the Swaim-Tysen Family book, Supplement, Page 186, said they had a “new listing” for his birth as 1796. Their original record matches my Swaim Family Record source almost exactly with the exception being that his death was listed as 9-17-1874.

232 John H. Swaim’s date of death and burial information based on his Obituary included earlier in this Appendix. A web post by Sylvia Settlemoir on Sept. 23, 2000 stated that Elizabeth Swaim, Nancy’s mother, is buried in Odd Fellows Cemetery in Montpelier, Blackford County, IN. I have no way of knowing whether this information is based on verified knowledge or what. I have not independently verified this and list it here as possible useful information.

The obituary for John H. Swaim says he died at 90, however, his age would be 99 based on the birth and death dates listed.



233 Elizabeth E. Swindell’s middle name was “E” based on her gravestone which reads “Elizabeth E. wife of John H. Swaim Died Sept 17, 1874 AGED 79Y 3M 7D”. Age worn on gravestone and with dirt it was hard to read.

234 Birth date of Elizabeth Swindell Swaim is derived as June 10, 1795 based on gravestone listed above which states that she died on Sept 17, 1874 and was 79 yrs, 3 mths, 7 days old. The gravestone is hard to read. Since she was married in 1816, she would have been either 21 years old at her marriage. The Ancestry.com “Family Tree” database (Bradford P. Taylor) for Elizabeth Swindell states that she was born in July 10, 1795 - from the “Robert D. Taylor and Shirley O. Snyder Family Trees” – original source Linda Lewis Livingston. The Swaim Family Record passed down states she was born July 10, 1795. She was two years older than her husband John H. Swaim.

235 Death of Elizabeth “Polly” Swindell Swaim 9-17-1874 based on photo of her gravestone. This date is also validated by Ancestry.com “Family Tree” database (Bradford P. Taylor) from the “Robert D. Taylor and Shirley O. Snyder Family Trees” – original source Linda Lewis Livingston. It is also validated by the John H. Swaim Obituary.

236 Marriage of John H. Swaim and Elizabeth Swindell on July 5, 1816 based on North Carolina Marriages 1801-1825, page 361 and Randolph County, NC Marriage Bonds, 1741-1868, Record #01.265, Bond #000114638 (in this source, bride is listed as Polly Swindle and John is listed as John H Swaim. Bondsman: Michael Swaim. Witness: Benj. Marman, J.P.) . This date is also validated by North Carolina Marriages to 1825 (Randolph County) which lists John H. Swaim and Polly Swindle married on 7-5-1816 and John H. Swaim’s obituary. The Swaim Family Record incorrectly lists this date as July 16, 1816. I have also seen this marriage date incorrectly listed as Jun 5 1816.

237 Mahala Swaim’s date of birth from Swaim Family Record (this record lists her name as Mahola – probably a typo). Obituary of John H. Swaim lists her name as Mahala. Mahala married George Clampit. Clampitt Family research shows her name as Mahala. Mahala’s birth also shown as 6-16-1817 at Clampett Family Centre Family Tree web site at Anvestry.com.

238 Mahala Swaim died 7-30-1864 based on letter dated 1-29-1982 from Chuck Clampitt to me (Jack S. Swaim). Since Chuck lives in Huntington, IN and physically described the Good Cemetery where Mahala and George are buried and Chuck has seen the gravestones, I believe this to be true.

239 Swaim Family Record lists marriage of Mahala Swaim and Geo. Clampit 1-3-1858. Clampett Family Centre web site (at Ancestry.com) shows his name to be George Clampitt, (confirmed by letter from Charles (Chuck) Clampitt dated 1-29-1982 to me. According to Chuck Clampitt (in his letter to me), Mahala and George married 1-1839, Mahala died 7-30-1864, George born 2-24-1816 and died 3-27-1878. It also says both Mahala and George are buried at Good Cemetery, Warren Indiana, where Christopher Columbus Swaim and Simeon Swaim are buried.

240 Swaim Family Record spells George Clampitt’s surname as Clampit. In letter from Pauline Utzinger dated 1-16-1982 to me (Jack Stuart Swaim), George’s last name was listed as Clampitt. George’s gravestone reads “George Clampitt” (courtesy of Linda Lewis Livingstone).

241 George Clampitt date of birth 2-24-1816 based on a letter from Chuck Clampitt dated January 29, 1982.

242 George Clampitt date of death 3-27-1878 based on a letter from Chuck Clampitt dated January 29, 1982. It is also validated by the Good Cemetery, Warren, IN (Huntington County) list via Interment.net which lists a George Clampitt, died 3-28-1878 at age 62 yrs, 1 mth, 4 day. It is also reflected in photo of his gravestone provided by Linda Lewis Livingstone.

243 Birth of George Clampitt in 1816, Stokes County, NC was included in Letter from Pauline Utzinger to me (Jack Stuart Swaim) on 1-16-1982. This letter says George Clampitt was the grandson of Richard Clampet (believe it was spelled with an ‘e’) born in Keat County, Delaware. Richard’s first wife was Dinah Pratt. Richard and Dinah had a son, William (b 1776 in Delaware), who married Ruth Johnston and had a number of children including George Clampitt who married Mahala Swaim.

244 Birth location of George Clampitt based on a letter from Paula Utzinger dated 16 Jan 1982.

245 Information pertaining to George Clampitt’s birth location and his parents based on Clampett Family Centre web site maintained by This site has an extensive set of endnotes that list specific references for the information and is a credible site.

246 Information pertaining to George Clampitt’s grandfather based on a letter from Paula Utzinger dated 16 Jan 1982.

247 Migration date for Mahala and George Clampitt moving from North Carolina to Huntington County, IN “about 1853” based on based on a letter from Chuck Clampitt dated January 29, 1982.

248 Burial Location for Mahala and George Clampitt based a letter from Chuck Clampitt dated January 29, 1982. It was clear from his letter that he has personally visited the cemetery which seems reasonable since he lived in Huntington, IN at the time the letter was written.

260 Robert Swaim date of birth of 6-21-1819 based on Swaim Family Record. This is validated by the 1850 Census, Indiana, Huntington County, Dist 52, Image 177 of 193. This is also validated by Swaim-Tysen Family book, Supplement, Page 135. Original source is letter from Ethel Swaim Gardner to Jesse Hunter. This source lists a statement after Robert’s name and birth date “- probably a grandchild of John and Charlotte Stack 16 Apr 1840”. The “probably a grandchild of John” statement is confusing because this John listed in her letter had a birth of 1799 and Robert’s birth of 1819 hardly could mean he was John’s grandson. This implies, though, that Robert’s grandfather was a John.

262 Robert Swaim marriage to Charlotte Stack on 4-16-1840 based on Swaim Family Record (this record lists her name as Charlotty, probably a nickname?).

288 Simeon Swaim born on 7-30-1823 based on Swaim Family Record and validated based on cemetery gravestone record based on a letter from Chuck Clampitt dated January 29, 1982. Some internet records have it listed 6-30-1823 instead of 7-30-1823. They are incorrect. The gravestone was engraved “Simeon Swaim, died Aug 28, 1854, Age 31y 28d.”

289 Simeon Swaim died on 8-28-1854 based on Swaim Family Record.

290 Marriage date of Simeon Swaim to Sarah Rice 1-2-1851 based on Index to Marriage Record 1837 - 1920 Inclusive Volume II Letters L To Z Inclusive, W. P. A. Original Record Located: County Clerks Office Bluffton Compiled by Indiana Work Projects Administration 1940, Book C-2, Page 69.

291 Simeon Swaim married Sarah Rice based on Swaim-Tysen Family book, Supplement, Page 135. Original source for this was a letter to Jessie Hunter by Ethel Swaim Gardner. Although this information is placed in a section regarding a different John Swaim (b 1799) and not my ancestor John H. Swaim (as far as I can discern), I am including it because the separate paragraph listing the children, Robert, Simeon, etc appears to indeed be referring to my John H. Swaim’s children because all of children’s names and births match the Swaim Family Record. Simeon’s marriage to Sarah Rice is not shown in the Swaim Family Record.

292 Sarah Rice born 2 Jan 1828 in Vermont based on Robin Rice Badley family information at Ancestry.com posted Dec 2004. This is very close to what her calculated birth would be based on her listing as Sarah Penrod at Cemetery Index, Wells County Public Library where she died 6 Jan 1873 at age 44y11m9d (was that misread and should be 4 days?). This birth also consistent with the 1860 and 1870 censuses.

293 Sarah Rice died 6 Jan 1873 at age 44y11m9d at Miller Cemetery (Chester Township) based on Cemetery Index, Wells County Public Library.

294 Sarah Rice’s parents’ names based on Robin Rice Badley family information at Ancestry.com posted Dec 2004.

295 Comment about the deterioration of Simeon’s gravestone based on photo I have seen of the gravestone. Although there are several Simeon Swaims, I believe this one is the Simeon, son of John H. Swaim, because one can barely see the number 28 in the date of death which should be August 28, 1854.
