Looking for info on John Sweeney b. abt. 1800 - 1815 ..... Married Bridget OGrady , she may have been from County Cork . They married in 1839 in Belfast , Maine , it appears that they may have returned to Ireland where their first five children were born ..... and then returned to Maine ..... they had at least 7 children ..... any of this sound familar to anyone ? I would be most grateful for anything anyone can add here ..... Thank you ...... June

Do you know what year he died and how old he was at death. Do you know how old he was at marriage date. Did he come as a boy or with family He had to be quite old at marriage if 1800 is possible date of arrival in US. I have 33 Johns but need a little help on age either birth Marriage or death or coming to US. Dick

I have no birth date ..... he was married to Bridget in 1839 , she was born in 1813 and she died Sept.1, 1887 in Belfast , Maine . I think it is possible that he came to Maine about 1835 . Their first child was born in 1842 in Ireland , so that is why I think they came here for a short while and then returned to Ireland as the 1850 census in Greenwood ( Oxford County Maine ) states the first five children born in Ireland , also they came to Belfast , Maine in 1850 .I think John died in Belfast , Maine but no proof .The childrens names were John , Catherine , Mary , Timothy , Daniel , Elizabeth and Daniel again ..... Thank you for your time . June
