James Swain Sr was my Great Great Great Grandfather. His daughter Elizabeth Swain married John Mc Leod (my great great grandparents). Elizabeth and John McLeod's last child Matilda "Tilly" born on August 30, 1860, was the Mother of my Grandfather Alexander Herbert Foulds.

I have seen several similar references to James’ Indian wife, but nothing really conclusive. I’m not familiar with ‘Family Search’.

Also of interest is Mary THREE DRESSS, a Flathead woman who married Francis “Frank” ERMATINGER (1798-1858).
