Death: Jan. 17, 1922

OBITUARY--GALLIA TIMES, Thursday, January 19, 1922

REACHED GOOD OLD AGE

Mrs. Emmaline Swain, one of the oldest residents of Guyan township, died early last Sunday morning at the home of her son, Lonnie Swain, near Glenwood, WV, with whom she was living for the winter. Her death resulted from infirmities due to old age. She was the widow of the late Otha Swain, who came to this township from Noble county, Ohio in 1877, and became one of the leading men of the community. They were married in Noble county, January 3, 1851. Mrs. Swain was the daughter of Stephen and Mary E. (Walker) Artis, and was born in Belmont county, Ohio, May 15, 1834. She died at the ripe age of 87 years. Since the death of her husband several years ago, she has lived around among her children and was kindly cared for. She was the mother of eleven children, seven sons and four daughters. The children still living in this community are Lonnie, Luther, and Ellsworth. Four of her children have died within the past few years. Funeral services were conducted by the Rev. Earl Cremeans from the Stewart Chapel church, of which the deceased was a member, Tuesday evening. Undertaker J. W. Stevers had charge of the burial which was made in the church cemetery.
