Searching for information on William Allen SWINEY and his sister Emily, who were born in TN in the early-mid 1800s. They were closely linked with the Solomon and Nancy HAYS family. William married their daughter, Frances Minerva Hays, and Emily married Minerva's brother Thomas in Marshall, TN in 1866. All of them ended up in IL. William and Minerva died within hours of each other in 1877, leaving their son in the care of Thomas and Emily, who raised him with their own children. Thomas Monroe Swiney was born in Lynnville, Giles Co., TN in 1872.
Other names are William B. Swiney, thought to be William and Emily's father, and J.W. and Arthur Swiney, identified in family notes as "uncles," but no one knows if they were brothers of William and Emily or if they belong to an earlier generation. Old photographs have survived giving the photographer as "G.W. Jones of Shelbyville, Tennessee," but it would take an expert to date the pictures from their clothing.
Solomon Hays was born in NC and Nancy in IN. T

Looking for my ggg grandmother Elizabeth. We are unsure of her maiden name spelling. Father may have been William OR Robert BRYANT. Mother may have been a CALHOUN. Elizabeth was born around 1816, and married Wilson Williamson Marlow around 1834-36. They had four children: Achsa (1836), James Robert (1838), Pleasant (1841) and Bethel (1843). She died young around the age of 25-27 shorthly after the birth of her last child. I am a descendent of Bethel. Bethel is a strange name. I once saw a William Bethel MARLOW and wondered if my gg grandfather was named after a this person. We believe that she and Wilson lived in Tennesse when first married and then moved to St. Claire Missouri. She died somewhere in Missouri,near St. Claire I would think. Does anyone have information on this family. I would love to hear from you. I have some information to share. Thank you, Vicki Walberg Vacaville, CA.
