James founded the Old Swindle College in Barry Co., MO, near Wheaton, Missouri. in 1855.


      Hi Charles,
      The obit is as follows and the paper has a picture of James Swindle and second Wife Elizabeth Gibson/ Davidson.
      "While the Butterfield Overland Stage was the first stage coach to haul regular passengers and mail on a regular schedule through Barry Co to the West Coast it was by not means the only state route through Barry County.
      Following the Civil War several other stage routes sprang up throughout the county including one from Pierce City to Fayetteville which came down the western side of Barry Co.
      The home of James Swindle of Wheaton which served as a stage coach stop for the Pierce City to Fayetteville route was built shortly after the war by Swindle who had been born in 1822 in Linden, Perry County, Tennessee on the Swindle Prong of Cedar Creek.
      A most industrious young man, James Swindle made a wagon for oxen, and everything belonging to it, bows for cover, and yoke for the oxen, loaded his property and set out for southwest Missouri in 1851. He came then to Barry County and during the Civil War was a blacksmith at Cassville. He was married first to Eliza Fly on August 19, 1852 and had Martha (Mrs. Jim Parks), John (Professor at Swindle College), LaFayette (A minister in the Christian Church), George, and Eliza (Mrs. Robert Carter Overton). After his first wife died in 1863 in the middle of the war, he remarried in 1866 to Mrs. Elizabeth Davidson and there were three children born to this union. Twins - Abe (at one time Tax Assessor and Collector for Barry County), Nannie (married Dr. Oscar Overton) and Mary Francis (married Dr. Jim Holmes). James Swindle died at his home at Corsicana on August 2, 1909.
      The Swindle home which was torn down in 1905 had five fire places and its large commodious rooms provided refuge for many a weary traveler of the rough roads of that era.
      Perhaps the most notable achievement of the Swindle family was the found of "Swindle College" Their son, Professor John Swindle, who started a subscription school on their premises in the early 1880's and erected the Swindle College Building in the year 1885 or 1886. Beginning with the first grade, courses were taught which would compare with those of the higher college levels. Courses in advanced mathematics and literature were taught by John Swindle, who won acclaim as a scholar at the University of Kentucky. Many young people boarded at the Swindle home while attending school at Swindle College down through the years. It was located two miles south of Corsicana at a spring after crossing Pogue's Creek. The college was located on a hill near the residence.
      Swindle College in later years suffered the fate of many rural academies, becoming a consolidated school with Wheaton, and in 1955 the building was sold to Gray McMillen and was moved to his farm. The old bell which summoned generations of students to the study of the three R's is still in the belfry, and were it to be rung today within the hearing of its former teachers and pupils, there would doubtless be a strong pull of the listener heartstrings as they recalled the past chapters in the history of the sturdy old school.
      Recently a great-great nephew of James Swindle, Tracy David Cary, President of the Pampa Genealogical Society of Pampa, TX visited the old landmarks of his family here compiling data from the cemetery, Bible, county and school records of the Swindle Family. He would appreciate any additional information.
      {Article written in July 1960} Corsicana was in Barry Co but destroyed by a tornado and never rebuilt.
