Mary M.C. [Alexander] Swain (1825-1895) and William W. Swain (1826-1864)
Today marks 150 years since the death of the man pictured above. He is William W. Swain, born around 1826. He died while scouting the land in East Port, Mississippi during the civil war, February 14, 1864*. *according to his wife's statement to the court in 1871.
Do any Swains out there know who this couple is?
These pictures come from the collection of Davine Harding's family. It's so exciting to see pictures of my Swain family.
