Convicted murderer. chiefly known for his bungled hanging, which required him to be hung twice.

His grave was marked only with a wooden cross, as his family was poor and he was also buried outside the fence. The cemetery has enlarged since, putting him inside the grounds.

s/o William Frederick Swim and Eva Foster.
