Hoping to find information on George and his ancestors who might have had a connection (familial or otherwise) to Brown, Kirkland, and/or Swearingen. My 2 brothers' (surname Brown) yDNA results have significant matches to Boling, Kirkland, and Swearingen, but NOT to Brown! There are location /time similarities with these surnames and George Boling:
Barneston, NE - my great grandfather Benjamin F. Brown lived there at the same time
Rush County, IN - near Franklin County where Isaac Stull Swearingen lived
Mercer County, KY - several possible Brown family connections
Ohio County, VA - Brown and Swearingen families lived at same time
The details on George:
George was born about 1864 in Rush County, Indiana, m. Ida Cheney in Barneston, NE on 19 Feb 1890. Ida and her birth family lived near my Brown family in Rock Island County, IL. George's parents were James and Nancy Houten Boling. James' parents were George Boling b. 8 Dec 1802 Mercer County, KY d. 24 Feb 1857, m. Charlotte Colley (b. 1803 VA); died 11 Jan 1888 Rush County, IN). His father, John Thomas Boling b. 1773 Ohio County, VA (now WV) d. 7 May 1838 Rush County, IN.
My query is a long shot, but nothing ventured, nothing gained.
Thanks so much!
