William B Swett Thank you for your beautiful photos of the Swett family plot. The Swett/Brown family is an honored part of American Deaf history. While most of the information you have in the description of William B Swett is correct, the following statement is likely not: "His grandfather Nahum was deaf and never educated. His grandmother was hearing and helped her husband with homemade sign languages to communicate." This gives the impression that a Deaf person needs to be taught how to sign from a hearing person and it is unlikely Nahum had no "homemade signs" before marrying. For further info on the family see: People of the Eye by Lane, Pillard, and Hedberg.
Happy Thanksgiving!!! Hi Dan, I have not spoken to you in awhile. I have been working on the old burial ground at Ipswich since mid-summer and still going strong. I was there this morning taking over 800 pictures! Talk again soon, John Glassford
