Muhammad, you are more than welcome! I always enjoy helping people whenever I can. I forgot to answer your question about Miles -- his age was 16 in the 1870 census, so he would have been born about 1854. He was a son of Antony / Anthony / "Antney" and Caroline, who were slaves of Rev. Frederic SWINT who died in Montgomery Co, AL in 1860.

Miles had these siblings:
Long who was born about 1847
Henry who was born about 1848
Lee who was born about 1851
[Lee is referred to as Bob in one place in the book SWINT -- it says "Lee is the Bob of the list." -- I'm assuming that means a list in the loose estate papers of Rev. Frederic SWINT, but I'm not positive.]

If this is your family, you would probably need to check Richmond Co, which I think is now Columbia Co, GA; Hancock Co, GA; Chambers Co, AL; and Montgomery Co, AL.

However, none of this SWINT branch (Rev. Frederic's) were ever in Cass Co, TX. This is my direct line. Rev. Frederic SWINT died in Pine Level, Montgomery Co, AL in 1860. His son, my great, great grandfather, Samuel, left Tallapoosa Co, AL in January 1867, went through Calhoun Co, MS where Samuel was killed; his widow and nine children stayed in MS for a few years before settling in Titus Co, TX, on a farm about six miles from Mt. Pleasant. Samuel's son Frederic was my great grandfather. Frederic's son Jefferson Frederic "Jeff" SWINT was my grandfather.

I wish you much success in your search!

Peace,
Becky
