Ward Swift, B's Grandmother, circa 1885?' Mary Jane Le Bret married Ward Swift and lived in the John Day, Dayville City, Oregon area. Mary Jane's sister, Nancy Emelia married Henry Herman Ringsmyer. Both were daughters of Jules and Dolly Holcomb Le Bret. You can read about these early pioneer families of Eastern Oregon below...
