His birthplace is listed as Poultney, Rutland Co, Vermont on his death record, but his son Joel's 1897 death record lists his birthplace as Gilmanton,NH.

Son of John Swain (b.1719) and his second wife, Eunice (Rogers? Swett?) Swain (1739-1774). It is possible that Levi may be a half-brother of Benjamin Swain.

He married, first, on Jul 20,1808 at Brattleboro,VT, Rhoda Eaton.

He married, second, Salome "Sally" Hall. There is a marriage recorded at London,NH on Jan 9,1827 between Levi Swain of Gilmanton,NH and Sally Eaton of London,NH which could possibly be this marriage.... Eaton may have been a prior married name of Sally's, it may be an error, or she could be related to Levi's first wife in some way.

Children(by first marriage): Julia Ann Swain Judd, Joel Eaton Swain, and Emily Swain.

Children(by second marriage): William Dexter Swain(father of Frances Swain Gleason), Joel Swain, and Samuel H Swain.
