Researcher note:

 According to descendants of  Caroline she was the only survivor of a French wagon train that was massacred by Indians.  The Swihart’s were crossing the prairie, saw the smoke and went to investigate.  They heard a child crying and discovered Caroline in the prairie grass. They took Caroline in to raise as their own. They searched for the starting point of the wagon train, trying to find family, but they could only affirm it was of French origin.  When Caroline was eleven she was given a choice as to what name to keep and she said the Swihart's were her family and she would always be theirs. This story was related by Beulah Hackney Allen Gibson, daughter of Arminda May Lee and Benjamin  Hackney. 

 

Information for Caroline was provided by Janice Ciarla Longstreath, great great granddaughter of Caroline. The dates of birth for the children of John and Mary were taken from a copy of Mary’s family bible.
