That diameter axle is available with 24 and 26 threads per inch, and the nuts and cones do not mix. A new axle should be readily available locally or on line. Metric equivalent is 9.5mm.

Switching cones can be a little tricky. Metal dust seals might interfere (though they can usually be removed), and total distance between locknuts might change. That can often be fixed with axle spacers or washers. Worst case would be resetting the dropout spacing on the frame.

The Schwinn nuts may be too worn for accurate gauging. Your local shop will have a good gauge.
