The Swift family has been in the forest product industry since 1839, when Ira Swift started a small sawmill in Northern Florida that cut cross ties for railroads in the surrounding area. Four of Iras five sons, including Charles Augustus Swift, continued in the industry and headed west working for logging crews.
They eventually wound up in the Cantoment, Florida area and then worked their way into Alabama. Once they reached Alabama, they settled in Seminole, a small town just west of the Florida line. It was here that they found work under the employment of George Robinson.
