The name Schwing derives from Schweringen, family of a famous pimp and sex slaver in Deadwood, South Dakota named Ellis Alfred Schwearengen. His details are on Wikipedia and the family genealogy is linked at the end of the article. The genealogy includes many deep state player’s ancestors.
The Schwing family is part of the respectable [?] Catholic establishment now in New Iberia, along with the family of Alfred ‘Smitty’ and Dianne Landry.
I already know that these two family names were historically connected to the theft of huge tracts of land from the Broussard family in South Louisiana. Jules B. Schwing oil well holdings around Loreauville are extensive, but they went dry. Go to Drilling Edge .com and search his name. You’ll get a map of Loreauville, Louisiana and list of nearby wells.
Looking at these two photographs, I begin to understand.
