Mr.Brackett: Seth Swindell's oldest child was Thomas Swindell, born in 1835. 1880 U.S.Census of Alcorn Co.,MS shows that Seth's wife, Elizabeth Swindell,age 56, was born in 1824. This Elizabeth was only 11 years old in 1835 when Thomas was born. Then, Seth's daughter, Mary, was born in 1840 when Elizibeth was only 16. DNA test have proven that Thomas was Seth's son. This information causes us to believe that Elizabeth was not Seth's first wife. Mary is buried in Paris, Texas and is, for sure, a daughter of Seth Swindell. Seth was a son of James Swindell and Mary Howe Swindell and had several brothers. Our family descends from Seth through Nathan, Charlie, Aaron, and Janice Swindell White. Appreciate your interest.
