Descendant of Roswell mill worker Lydia Swords seeks information

I heard recently from the descendant of a Roswell mill worker who would like more information about the Roswell mill during the Civil War and about the Swords family in connection with that.

Lydia Swords is believed to have worked in the Roswell mill. There were four or five sisters together, and there is evidence to suggest they may have been part of the deportation to the North in the summer of 1864.

If anyone has information about these sisters, please respond to my blog, and I will share the information.
