Subject: (Rufus?) Owen Sweeny/Sweeney/McSweeney?
Date: Saturday, May 13, 2017
Surnames: Sweeney, Sweny, Sweeny, McSweeney
I am trying to trace (Rufus?) Owen Sweeny/Sweeney/McSweeney who may have been born in Calais in abt. 1802. He subsequently was in Digby, Nova Scotia and then moved to Carleton, Nova Scotia in abt 1848. His son, Owen Jr, may also have been born in Calais in 1841/42. Several of Owen Jr.'s children also lived in Maine, as per Owen Jr's obituary in 1928 (son's Norman b. 1867, Calvin b. 1872 and Oren/Oran/Orrin b. 1874.
I am trying to find documentation of Owen Sr's birth and parentage, but can't find online access to early Calais vital statistics. Thanks in advance for your help. I also have information on Mayflower ancestry of Owen Sr's descendants, if someone is interested...
