About the Swearingen surname

When I was 13, I looked at the stately Swearingen log. Bound in thick leather, aged by time, and some 5-6 inches thick, it was impressive to me then and it is now. It started earlier than Garrett van Swearingen's time.

Swearingen keepsakes seem to go with each part of the family as they spread west and south. My grandfather Edward Everett Swearingen had the family Stradivarius violin. It went to my Uncle Cecil when my grandfather passed in 1946 and Cecil's son Lowell Dean Swearingen has it now. The family log was with Earl Swearingen last I heard. He died long ago. I have no idea who it was to be given. I long to see it again.
