from
History of the State of Rhode Island with Illustrations
Albert J. Wright, Printer
No. 79 Mille Street, corner of Federal, Boston.
Hong, Wade & Co., Philadelphia
1878. p. 259.

"Undertakers. The first regular undertaker in the city of Providence was Gardner T. Swarts, who, in 1833, opened a room on Pine, between Dorrance and Orange streets. At this time Mr. Swarts carried on a general livery business. In 1861, he erected a large building on the corner of Pine and Dorrance streets, where he carried on a very extensive business until his death, which occurred in 1875. Among the prominent undertakers of to-day are James Boyce, at Nos. 202 to 206 Broad Street; Horace B. Knowles, Nos. 95, 97 and 99 North Main Street; and B. P. Swarts, No. 139 Pine Street."

Hope this helps - I am not related in any way, I like unusual surnames, and found this in the above transcription.
