Wiley Carew always went by the name Carew.
He had been sick some time before he died. An autopsy discovered cancer and it is presumed that was the cause of death.
-- Edith Marie McSwain Jenkins

Carew was 3 years old when he was first enumerated in the census in residence at Ethel, a small rural community in Prairie Township of Arkansas County, Arkansas.

In the 1900 Arkansas County, Arkansas, census, Wiley's parents have died and he is head of the household, with his sister Callie and brothers Matthew and James living with him. His father George B died only two months before the 1900 census.

A Russell McSwain, age 21, is a boarder in the household of John and Julia Cook 4 houses down from Wiley and his siblings. For a long time it was unclear where this Russell came from or how he is kin to them. Like the others he was born in Arkansas, and both his parents were born in North Carolina.

This Russell is listed in later censuses as Russell A McSwain, and had a son named Russell also. In November 2011 descendant of John Franklin McSwain told me that John had a son named Russell, along with John, Charlie and her ancestor George. I had found records for only George. Russell goes in that slot in the family puzzle.

In 1910, Wiley Carew is married to Susie Lowery. The L in her entry Susie L appears to stand for her maiden name, since we know her middle name was Frances. Carew's brother Matt is still living with the family. Both he and Carew are working in farm labor for other farms.
