Alpheus J. Swayze built a home for his family on Nightingale Rd., Hope, Warren Co., New Jersey. He and his wife, Mary, raised their four children in that farmhouse. His son, Whit, inherited his carpentry skills, and his daughters "Delia" and "Jenny" were skilled in home arts. Daughter "Issy" was educated as a teacher and child-care professional.

Alpheus farmed his land, and he and Mary enjoyed long lives on their property. After Mary's death in 1919, his daughter "Jenny" and his widowed daughter "Delia" cared for him for the remainder of his life "up on the farm"--a phrase which has continued down through the generations. See his picture caption for more information.
