|I became interested in learning about my family history shortly after the passing of my mother. Since then I've been tracing my ancestrial roots and piecing together the never ending branches of my family tree. Along the way I've received lots of help from others and I hope I can return a portion of that to future generations and those seeking information about their family. If you find any incorrect or additional information on any of the memorials I've created please let me know.|
My main research centers around the following family lines mostly located in North Carolina:
Sweezy, Swift, Willis, Warren, Eggers, McBride, Weaver, Self, Greene, Younce
|Find A Grave Friends|
Bianca Stout, Carolyn Coffman, Cindy, Diana Taylor, jack hoyle, Joey Tesmer, John Swift, Michelle Stone, Mike, Nola Mae Allen ..., vinyljunk

|John Swift||Swift Cemetery, Vilas, NC|
Dear Gary; I am the G-G-G-G grandson of Elias Swift (1760-1834) who I am pretty sure owned the land where the Swift Cemetery, Vilas, NC is located. I very much appreciate the work you have done in documenting this graveyard. My interest is to find proof that he did in fact start the graveyard on his land. If I can get that proof then I want to do for him what I did for his son Thomas E. Swift (1789-1864) for his pioneer graveyard in Marion County, Indiana. I invite you to go to findagrave.com where you will see the markers I installed there. Can you give me any direction regarding my search for proof? Thanks for your consideration. John Swift
Thanks for your entries and pictures of the Sweezy and Weaver lines. I would like to contact you about our family connection.

Thought you would be interested I came across Kate Swift Reece, daughter of Jane Swift and George W. Swift. Added her to the find a grave site.
Have linked her to parents. Cannot find husband.

Dear Gary S.,
I am contacting you regarding the photograph of William Landrine Eggers' tombstone that is located on Find a Grave (Memorial# 15036839). I would like to ask your permission to use the photograph for the website of my local chapter of the DAR. I would greatly appreciate your help in this matter.

Lemuel and Rebecca also had a son named Rufus, born August 1844, my ggg grandfather on my dad's side. I believe he was their last born child. Sheila
