His present property was formerly known as the Baxter Kinney Place, containing 100 acres, and located about a mile south of Penn Yan. In 1845 he married Hannah Ann Spooner, by whom he had two children, Hortense and Hattie M., both of whom are married. Deacon Swarthout has been an industrious and successful farmer.
