good morning,my grandfather mr.h.j.roberson[robinson]would always tell me when i begin doing genealogical research to look up the swints.i did not follow up on that because the name swint was not a surname of any of my immediate family.however my grandfather knew a great deal about texas history and being born on or before 1900 in arkansas or texas he would tell me the swint's were a large slaveholding family in cass[davis]county,texas.i then got a book out of the compton college library and i have since ourchased it and i just left it at my mother's home.it is a book on elijah muhammad the leader of the nation of islam.in the beginning of the book is the genealogy of the slaveowner of elijah muhammad who was middleton pool from washington county,georgia.middleton pool had a daughter named jane pool and she married john swint from mount pleasant,texas which is in cass county,texas.on the propbate records of middleton pool are two female slaves named hannah and fannie.i am trying to see if they were related as well as see if fannie could be my great great grandmother.time will tell.check out the 1867 voter registration records of the state archives that your male relatives who were over 21 years old to see where they were as well as where they came from.my great great grandfather was miles richardsdson and he and his brothers asbury and julius richardson are on the 1867 voter registreation of davis[cass]county,texas.also check out the freedmen's bureau and savings records for your family.to me this document is more valuable than the census.the mormon genealogical researchers have put the freedmen's bank records on cd.may Allah bless you in your research.muhammad abdullah-p.o.box 338-compton,ca.90223
