Swearingen Clanlan

This is my great-uncle Oscar. Along with his wife Jessamine, who was one of the Mohle clan, they created one of the first subdivisions in Lockhart. He and his older brother Will seem to have been the entrepreneurs in the family.
This is my grandfather, Henry Swearingen, as a young violin player. The photo was shot in a Lockhart photo studio. He's really looking intense. You wonder how many other pictures were shot on this oriental rug in the same studio.
