Joseph E. Swards was 16 years old when he left his native Philadelphia as a brand-new apprentice seaman on the barque Geo. F. Manson, bound for Astoria and Portland.

The Oregon State Police (OSP) troopers are continuing the investigation into a Saturday afternoon single-vehicle fatal traffic crash along Highway 126E just east of McKenzie Bridge that resulted in the death of a 67-year old woman. Names will be released Sunday morning to allow family more time for notifications.
