Biography

During July of 1938 the WPA Historical Records Survey interviewed Mr. Swick, the notes from which state that "Only a sketchy interview could be had with Mr. Swick who lives about a mile and a half northeast of Corvallis on the east side of the Willamette River."[1]

"My father, Minor Swick, came from Michigan in 1853 and settled at French Prairie in Marion County. With him were his father and three brothers, Tunis, Lyman, and Ben. When father came to Benton County the others remained at French Prairie. In Benton County my father married Cerinda Stewart, daughter of John and Mary Stewart. I have had five brothers and one sister but none of them except myself ever married. I have only one child, a daughter, and this branch of the Swick family dies with me."[2]

"My father and his brothers all went to the Prineville country in eastern Oregon in 1872, when they engaged in the cattle business. There were no good school there and I was allowed to come back here during the winter and attend school at the Agricultural College, which then had an elementary department. When I was twenty I returned to Benton County to stay."[3]
