I then followed the advice of beekeeping for dummies and created a swarm for them.
I dumped all of the bees one frame and super at a time about 2 yards from the front of the hive until 99% of the bees were in front of the hive,
I do not know what you exactly did?
Easy way to split the colony and stop swarming is:
Put super or two with foundations on the old place. Give queen to that foundation hive and one frame from old hive.
Move old supers 2-3 m from old place.
So bees fly them selves to old place and colony will be splitted to flying bees and broods. So they have lack of power to swarm. Brood colony will get a new queen and it starts new life.
Systems go on: When fever of swarming is over after two weeks, colonies will be put together so they carry honey better.
