Heman Swift, 12th child of Mary Ann (Sedgwick) Swift (B5) and Rev. Job Swift, was born September 30, 1791, at Bennington, Vt., and died there January 30, 1856. He married December 3, 1817, Ruth Robinson, daughter of Colonel Moses Robinson of that place. He was called "the younger Dr. Swift" and, as all his children were born at Bennington Centre, we assume that he lived there and that his brother, Dr. Noadiah Swift, lived at Bennington.
