I don't know if you have checked the genforum boards at genealogy.com
have posted quite a few newspaper articles at the Switzer surname board from
Decatur County and a couple under Swisher. Maybe your family? If you use the
'search this forum' box and put in Brownfield, everything I have posted will come
up for you. Might want to check the Iowa genforum board also.
Just trying to help.
