Abraham Swindell, son of Josiah Swindell, Sr., was born circa 1755 and was another of Josiah's sons to serve in the Revolutionary War. In a 1778 list of Hyde militia who volunteered to serve as Continental soldiers for the term of nine months, Abraham is listed as age 23, born and living in Hyde County, 5 feet and 7 inches in height with fair hair and blue eyes. We found no further information on Abraham Swindell in any of the Hyde County records & his fate is a mystery!!
