Sorry - I can't contribute to this question because I don't know anything about it, but I was interested enough to look at Jane Cheek's profile. I was fascinated to discover the family's history in an area of Virginia not far from where I used to live and I also noted names that are very familiar to me because they are fairly common where I now live in Grant, Alabama. There is a small community about 2 or 3 miles out of the city limits of Grant that is named Swearengen and many people here have that last name. The last name Randles (although not Randle) is also a common one here - in fact, I live on Randles Road and my next door neighbor, whose name is Randles, is the great-grandson of the man who used to own several square miles of property around here - his house was built by his grandfather.
Even though Virginia and North Carolina are prominently the places where that family lived, I wonder if any of them made their way to northeast Alabama.
