Hi, Muhammed --

Mary Frances EMERSON and Frederic SWINT were my great grandparents. Their son, Jefferson Frederic "Jeff" SWINT was my grandfather. Jeff and his brother Will owned Swint's Drug Store on the square in Mt. Pleasant, Titus Co, TX. I haven't been in that area much for a long time, but it seems that Cass County and Titus County are approximately an hour's drive apart. I just found your post today. I have been working on other lines for some time now. My SWINT line is:

John SWINT, died 1801 in Hancock Co, GA; m. Elizabeth CARTLEDGE

(Rev.) Frederic SWINT died 1860 in Montgomery Co, AL; m. Rebecca HARRIS

Samuel SWINT died 1867 in Calhoun Co, MS after leaving Tallapoosa Co, AL, heading west; m. Rebecca CARTLEDGE, whose great aunt was Elizabeth CARTLEDGE, her husband's grandmother.

Frederic SWINT died 1911, Mt. Pleasant, Titus Co, TX; m. Mary Frances "Molly" EMERSON.

Jefferson Frederic "Jeff" SWINT died 1948, Mt. Pleasant, Titus Co, TX, m. Anita RAY

Mary SWINT died 1993, Ft. Worth, TX (but lived in Mt. Pleasant, TX most of her life); m. Jack R. SMITH

Becky SMITH (me)

Their migration pattern was GA > AL > MS > TX. After Samuel was killed in MS, his widow and nine children (one married) stayed in MS about 4 years before moving on to TX, in 1873 or early 1874.

Hope something here helps.
