Swarthout, Lewis, born in Tyrone, Steuben County, N. Y., August 17, 1827, was the son, and the seventh of the ten children, of Henry and Polly Swarthout. In 1849 Henry Swarthout and family moved to Milo, and located on the farm now owned by Lewis. There he died in 1864, followed by his wife, four years later. Lewis lived in Tyrone until 1869, when upon the death of his mother, he came to Milo. This is known as the "old Fort farm," an account of which somewhat peculiar name will be found in the historical department of this volume. November 16, 1848, Mr. Swarthout and Louisa Hallock were married. They have two children, Frank B. and Martha J. In Milo Lewis Swarthout is known as an industrious and successful farmer. He is not active in town affairs, yet has an interest in all that pertains to its welfare. The family are members of the Second Milo Baptist Church, of which Frank B. Swarthout is clerk.
