Swarthout, Heman Chapman, one of Benton's representative farmers, born in Barrington, September 21, 1842, was the youngest of the children of George F. and Roena Swarthout. At the age of seventeen Heman started out for himself and for several years migrated from one place to another, living most of that time in Ohio and New York. In 1876 after his mother's death he bought the farm in Benton he now occupies. It embraces over Too acres and is in a good state of cultivation. In 1866 Mr. Swarthout married Eliza Jane Barber, by whom he had two children, both dying in infancy. His wife died in 1885 and in February, 1887, he married Sarah A. Prichard, of Benton.
