Hi, Matt --
Where in the U.S. have your SWINTs lived and when did they come to America?
I descend from John SWINT who died in Hancock Co, GA in 1801. He had seven sons, from whom all the southern SWINTs descend. Some of them were slave owners and some weren't. Some of those slaves took (or were given??) the SWINT surname. This SWINT family came from Germany and the name was originally SCHWINDT.
So far I have seen SWINT spelled/misspelled in these ways: Swent, Swents, Swints, Swintz, Swentz, Swontz, Swonts, Swendt, Schwind, Schwindt, Schwend Synnd, Synns, Swind, Swend, Schweindt, Swinte, Swink, Schwenck, Swyng, Schwin. Hard to believe so many (mis)spellings can come out of such a simple five-letter name!
