gpart And VPS Disk: Disappearing swap Partition

I have Digital Ocean instance that has about 1G free on the disk.
I want to use this to create a second swap partition.  I am able to
run 'gpart add -t freebsd-swap ...' successfully.  That is, gpart show
shows that new swap partition as present and I can swap it on.  HOWEVER,
upon reboot, that partition disappears and the space shows as free again.

What am I missing here?
