At the home of his son, at Leonard, in West Marlborough, yesterday morning, David C. Swayne, who for a long time had been one of the best known Prohibitionists of the old school in Chester county, died at the age of sixty-seven years. He was a man of pure and upright character, and exemplary habits. Being a consistent Friend, he was a regular attendant at the meetings of the society, and he seldom missed a session of the Yearly Meeting.
Only a short time ago he was in West Chester, and at the recent meeting in Kennett Square- the mass meeting at which Rev. Silas Swallow spoke, Mr. Swayne was among the prominent men in attendance. He was noteworthy as never shirking his responsibility, but he was always willing to carry a petition, announce a meeting, or do anything else in reason for the cause which he advocated.

Death terminated the long weeks of suffering of Sarah H. Swayne, wife of Jacob Swayne, of Kennett Square, at 5 o'clock last evening. Advanced in years and afflicted from a broken hip bone and other troubles, during twenty-one weeks, her passing from this life was a longed-for event to the sufferer.
She was a daughter of Isaac and Elizabeth Stubbs, of Lancaster county,, where she was born in 1830. She married Jacob Swayne, of Willowdale, this County, fifty-four years ago, and had lived in Delta, York County; Brick Meting House, Maryland, and in Oxford during her life. Four years ago the couple went to Kennett Square and had since made their home in that place.
Her husband and the following children survive: Enoch P. Swayne, Chadd's Ford; Mary E., wife of Wilmer Cope, Lincoln University; Townsend J., of Camden, N.J.; Emaline D., wife of C. Warren Swayne, of Kennett Square; Calvin I. Swayne, who died several years ago, was a son.
Mrs. Swayne was a member of a large family, two of whom only are now living, and they are Emeline S. Passmore, of West Chester, and Dr. Henry P. Stubbs, of Wilmington, Del. Those who have passed away are Vincent G., Albert, Daniel and Thomas, of Delta, York County, and Dr. Joseph Stubbs, of London Grove, brothers and Mary, a sister, who died in young womanhood.
The life of the deceased was one of service and thoughtfulness for others, and her ministry entered all classes. It is said that in her former home in Maryland there was scarcely a house within a radius of ten miles where her helpfulness had not been known. She was uncomplaining and patient throughout her long illness and had wont the rest of the faithful.
SWAYNE- In Kennett Square, on 7th Day, 6th mo. 24, Sarah H., wife of Jacob Swayne, in the 81st year of her age.
Relatives and friends of the family are invited to attend the funeral without further notice from the residence of her son-in-law, C. Warren Swayne, on Willow street, Kennett Square, on Fourth-day, 6th mo. 28th. Services 10:30 to 11:30. Services at London Grove Meeting House at 2:30 p.m.
