Henry Swymmer married Margaret Whitman on 26 October 1853 in Annapolis County, Nova Scotia. Their daughter, Margaret Alexa, was born in 1854 in Louisville, Kentucky. Margaret Alexa died in 1869 in Galveston, Texas. (Presumably she is buried there.) Henry moved to Brazoria County, Texas, where on 20 January 1875 he married Ariadne O. (Gautier) Terry Tyler, widow respectively of Clinton Lucretius Terry and __ (Jordan?) Tyler. In the 1870's, he had business dealings with a William S. Swymmer of Chicago, Illinois, who in the 1890's was a resident of Galveston and a partner in the firm of Williams and Swymmer, with Boling Williams. William S. Swymmer may later have lived in Dallas, Texas. When did Henry die and where, and where is he buried? Ditto, re. William S. Swymmer. Were the two brothers? Who were their parents? Where and when did Margaret (Whitman) Swymmer die? Any information appreciated.
