Patricia, could the Mary Hester Sweetland you are seeking had a brother by name of Isaac VanMeter Sweetland. He was married to a Marth Russell, unconfirmed reports they had a daughter Mary Hester Sweetland ( who would have been named after Issaac's sister ). This second Mary Hester Sweetland married a Theodotius A. Love, one of their children was Mary Sweetland Love, who marrried a Southworth, where my interest starts.
Some of the Soutworths I'm interested in have Sweetland as a middle name.

We have the possibility of at least three Mary Sweetlands in three generations ?

According to the 1880 US Census Wade H Riffe was 3 years old. Henry was 5 years old so must have been born in 1875. Henry married Carrie Dove Helm - she was born 12-1-1876 in MO. They had 3 children - Goldie b 1896. Sylvia b 1904, & Dorothy b 1907. Goldie Married Daniel Thurston Chapman. They are my husbands Grandparents. Goldie died 5/2 1963 in Tulare Co., CA. Also according to the 1880 Census Sally Strickland wasn't listed - Do you know when she died? thanks for any info

According to the information I have, Sarah "Sallie" Ann Woodville Strickland died 28 April 1880 in Levasy, Jackson County, Missouri. Peter married Martha A. Raby on 1 Oct 1883 in Osage twp, Jackson Co., Missouri. They had three children; Thomas Hendric, Bessie, and Peter Roy. It is said that Peter B. was Sheriff of Jackson Co., MO. I have not yet researched that possibility.
