Doyne and Martha Page (Floyd) Swett of Worcester, Mass., where
he is a mason and builder. He says : " When a boy twenty years
old I was in the field with my uncle and some other men, mowing,
where I could hear the drums beating to call in volunteers (this was
after the first battle of Bull Run). It awoke my patriotism. I had
just complained to my uncle that my scythe did not hang well. He
said, ' No, it never hangs well, you are always complaining ; ' where-
upon, hanging the scythe upon the limb of an apple tree, with the
remark, 'It hangs well there,' I enlisted in the 21st Mass. regiment

bor, Bethel Church, and in front of Petersburg ; was wounded there
on the 28th of July, 1864, and narrowly escaped being taken prisoner.
After being honorably discharged from the army I served three years


at my trade. In the spring of 1869 I and my brother, Alvin Eugene
Thurston, went west. Our first stopping place was Kansas City, Mo.
I started from there with a party for Black Canon, Arizona. When
near Salt Lake City we were attacked by the Indians, and the man
riding next me was killed and several wounded, so that we were
obliged to abandon our journey. I then returned to Worcester and
settled down to my trade, and soon commenced business for myself,
as builder and contractor, in which I have been quite successful."
