Re: Harriett E. Swigart - TN

In Reply to: Harriett E. Swigart - TN by Janice Caldwell of 230

Dear Ms. Caldwell,
Tell ya' what I'm gonna do. I'll trade ya'.
You may already know this, but I'll send it anyway. On page 112 of "Cheatham County, Tennessee, History and Families" there is an aproximately 200 word bio of James Madison Babb, son of John M. Babb and Hariett E. Swigart Clark. James Madison married Georgia Ann Binkley. If you do not have access to the book, pls let me know and I will copy the entry for you.
Now, what I want to know is who was Harriett's father. The reason I want to know is that I am a sentimental historical geography of the Sycamore Creek Basin of Middle Tennessee. That basin is about 15-20 northwest of Nashville. There are references to a Mr. Swigart who built a mill in the mouth of a cave near Pleasant View, Tennessee. A large spring in the cave supplied the water to power the mill.
I believe that this "Mr. Swigart" is the same person as "Christian Swaggert" in the 1820 Robertson County, Tennessee Census (320112/20011/4). The cave would have been in Robertson County in 1820. That part of Robertson county became part Cheatham County when the latter was formed in 1856.
I think the mill builder was probably a Deutsche from the Lancaster/York County, Pennsylvania area.
Can you help me? Can anyone? Thanks very much.

Tracy V. Robb
