Henry Swindler
Our old friend "Uncle" Henry Swindler died at his brother's residence, in Guyan township, on Monday morning. We regret much that we are forced to chronicle the above. Mr. S. was one of our old, honest, earnest citizens.
[Gallipolis Journal, (Gallipolis, Oh.) Thursday, August 12, 1875 - Sub. by Kathy McDaniel]

HENRY SWINDLER, An old resident of Guyan township, Gallia county, Ohio, departed this life on the ninth day of August, A. D. 1875 aged 74 years, 3 months and 3 days. He was born in Culpepper county, Va., on the 6th day of May, 1801. In 1815 he came to Ohio township, Gallia county, Ohio, where he resided six years. The next two years of his life were spent in Cabell county, Virginia, (now West Virginia;) after which time he took up his permanent residence in Guyan township, Gallia county, Ohio, where he ended his days. The last twenty-five years of his life, he lived with his brother, John C. Swindler.
Mr. Henry Swindler was one of nature's noblemen. His heart was always in the right place. He esponsed the right, as he understood it, eagerly, and maintained it with enthusiasm.
In early life he was a Whig. He joined the Republican party at its inception, and clung to its principles to the last hour of his life. During the darkest days of the great war of the rebellion, his heart beat as true to the flag and the Union, as the needle points to the pole, and though surrounded by the most factious elements, his faith never wavered, his courage never faltered.
In 1873 he became a Granger. With his accustomed enthusiasm and liberality, he built a fine hall for the use of the Union on his own farm; and was at the time of his death presiding officer of the Lodge.
Mr. Swindler never married. He was a shrewd business man, and leaves quite a large estate, in lands, government securities, &c.
A large concourse of relatives, friends and neighbors followed him to his grave with hearts full of sorrow.
May his ashes rest in peace; while his soul, clad in the robes of immortality dwells forever in the place which the Good Master went to prepare for all the worthy.
