About Rhodolphus Nye Swift

Spent 17 years at sea and was Captain of the Lancaster for 8 yrs. He was also active in the live-oak trade with a base of supply at the Mosquito Inlet in FL. Because live-oak timbers were used to build warships, his life was in danger when the Civil War broke out. In New Bedford he served as a general purchasing agent when the Stone Fleet was organized in 1861.
