In the profile for John Joseph Swafford, the story notes many discrepancies between the facts and the narrative.
Ancestry trees also show a different parent for Mary Josephine Cullum (who has a younger sister named Mary according to the profile).
One ancestry profile states John Swafford is the actual father.
Can anyone find proof to show either. Mary Josephine has not been found on the 1880 Census. She married in 1883.
