This is an extension of the original Cliff Swann Home Page Of Swanns...Levin Covington Swann and Thomas Rezin Swann settled in what is now Cabell County WV in the late 1700s. Levin was born in Charles County, Maryland and Thomas was born at Amherst, Va. No information of their parents has been found other than their initials which was B. Swann and I. Swann. These Brothers apparently spent their childhood years in the Amherst Va. Area and later relocated to the Guyandotte River Valley at Ousley Gap on Toms Creek, where they made their living as Farmers. Levin was married to Elizabeth Jenkins at Amherst Va. and Thomas married Isabel (Izzy) Kelly in Kanawha County. Levin and Elizabeth are interred side by side in the SWANN Cemetery which is located near Barboursville, off of Malcolm Road. Many of Levins family are interred here. This cemetery has been maintained and is quite large and still expanding. Thomas Rezin and his family are interred in a different cemetery a short distance away. It is located on the Herb Nida land on Route #10 past Merrits Creek, Asbury Woods, and adjacent to a baseball field and Methodist Church Camp Grounds. Reference to Cabell County Cemeteries, by Carrie Eldridge, Vol. 2, page 91.(On file at the Barboursville Public Library). Photographs of Headstones are in the process of being added to this Home Page. Refer to Family Tree Online for "Decendants of Levin Swann". This Family Tree Outline was recently updated (May 2000). Other Swanns who would like to compare notes and exchange information are encouraged to make E-Mail contact.
