Wilbur Swaine

From Albert J. Swaine, son of Wilbur Swaine:

The correct spelling of the name is SWAINE. my father always thought it was without the "E", but when we obtained a copy of his birth certificate, it contained the "E". He was adopted as a small child and had no family information.

He married Catherine Riordan of 200 Harding Avenue, Teaneck, NJ and our family resided at 454 Glenwood Avenue, Teaneck, N. J.

I was the only child of that marriage. My father worked at the Ford Plant in Edgewater, NJ, prior to his enlistment.

He was wounded in France and later died of his wounds in France. He received two Purple Heart and is registered in the National Purple Heart Hall of Honor in New Windsor, NY.
