    Notes 
    • John returned to Newfoundland after the 1911 Canada Census. He married Harriett (Doran) Meaney (widow of Frank Meaney) and built a small house on the Northside of Calvert near Harriett's daughter, Mary Anne (Minnie), who married Ambrose Walsh. An old Bill of Sale, dated March 31, 1931, shows John was given the land by Richard (Rich) Sullivan. The land, house, and furniture were willed to Martin Reddigan (my father) on the 10 day of May 1932. John died on, or about, 7 September 1932. He is buried in the Reddigan family plot in Holy Trinity RC Cemetery. John's only request, as a condition of the will, was that Martin Reddigan should have regular Masses said for the repose of his soul. Various slips of paper (receipts) from the old house (torn down in 1995) show that Masses for the repose of the soul of John Swain were still being said into the 1980s. (Kevin Reddigan)
