Birth: Jan. 29, 1880
Vernal
Uintah County
Utah, USA
Death: Oct. 16, 1944
Price
Carbon County
Utah, USA

A daughter of Jeremiah Hatch and Aurila Bard (Hadlock) Hatch. Mrs. Swain was born Jan.29, 1880 in Vernal, Utah and moved to Lapoint in the spring of 1910. There was no doctor or nurse available for the new settlement as the distance to Vernal or Roosevelt was long and tedious over poorly developed roads and the distance to these places had to be traveled by horsepower for many years. there was an Indian doctor at Ft. Duchesne but that was too far and the doctor not always available for the white settlers. People here felt that the Lord had indeed blessed them when Millie Swain, came to the new community with her skill in midwifery and general illnesses. It was this good natured, wife of Abner Swain and mother of a family of eight three of them born after she came to Lapoint, hard-working. A faithful woman who was responsible for the safe delivery of nearly every new baby in Lapoint and surrounding country. She brought the little new souls into the world in log huts devoid of comforts and modern sanitation, but mother and baby had a miraculous way of surviving all these hardships and the new babies grew into healthy rosy-cheeked children who later crowded the one-room log schoolhouses out of existence. Millie tended to her sick on horseback, in buggy, and in wagon, in all kinds of weather, over all sorts of roads. The old-timers say that if the way was too rough for the horse or he gave out. She always had two good feet, and she always got there in time. It has been said that the Lord takes care of his children and this community surely felt His had and blessing when he sent them this blessed woman. She served he community until the automobile, telephone and more adequate hospitalization and health clinics took over for her. Millie passed to her rest Oct. 16, 1944
