Clayton County Register, Thur., 05 Oct. 1933.
Chas. Swan, who until a week ago was employed in road work by the Nolan Construction company, north of Marquette, died there on Monday, following a short illness, which it is supposed was brought on by exposure.
Since the man was registered with the construction company without home or relatives, it is probable that he will be buried in the cemetery near the County Home, although efforts are being made to get some information concerning the dead man from his last Minneapolis address, which he gave as 226 Nash Ave.

Charles Swan, 50 years old died Monday at the home of R. Knoebel. He had been working as dump-man in the grading crews who are building Iowa highway 13 north of McGregor. He had been living at the road camp. Saturday night late he came to the Knoebel home and was sick there until Monday when he died.
Swan, when he applied for work on the highway some weeks ago said he had no relatives or home, but asked in case of accident notice be sent to 226 Nash Avenue, Minneapolis.
A telegram was sent this address after his death, but no answer has come. Sheriff L.J. Palas held an inquest Monday and the jury brought in a verdict of death from "intoxication and exposure."
The body was taken to the Pilkington funeral home here, and was buried Monday by county authority in the Pleasant Grove cemetery. He had $24.60 in his pocket. This with a watch will be used to defray funeral expenses.
