Brian Hass Elizabeth "Bessie" Swift was born in County Managhan, Ireland in 1839. According to the Beresford Centennial book, she started for America with her father in 1855; but, he died of cholera on ship and was buried at sea. Bessie arrived in America alone at the age of seventeen. She went to Galena, IL, where she met and married James McGuire, who was born in 1830 in County Fermanaugh, Ireland.

In 1870, the couple moved to Dakota Territory, where they homesteaded in Emmet township in Union County. James and Bessie McGuire had nine children together. These were Frank McGuire, Ellen "Nellie" O'Connor, James McGuire, Annie T. Lass, Mary "Mamie" J. Lass, John McGuire, Joe McGuire, Ben McGuire, and Elizabeth "Lizzie" Lass.

The house where they lived was reported to have still been standing and being occupied as recently as 1984.
