SWINT, John,

Thank you for sharing your research.

I did find where in 1775 John SWINT (took up?) a SC plat surveyed 1772 for John BUSH in the forks of the Broad River and Saluda River near Wateree Creek as shown online at the following page:

What do you think that first word is naming the wagon road?

I had thought perhaps he was related to John KELLY since he was named as one of the his executors in a 1767 suit:

I wondered if you had found any indication of what John SWINT was doing when in mid 1700's taking up several tracts of land on Edisto River--mining? Later, he might have been doing the same thing on the Catawba River.

Any comments will be greatly appreciated.
