Cemetery notes and/or description:
The Luther Sweet family created this cemetery, it appears on the 1876 plat map of Rensselaer County across the road from the Methodist Episcopal Church.

The Luther Sweet cemetery was established in about 1847 as a small, private burial ground for the Luther Sweet (the older) family.

The cemetery plot is located on private property near the "Pointed Window" house on the NE side of NY Highway 2, about 0.6 miles west of NY Highway 22 near Petersburgh, Rensselaer county, New York.  Ask permission.

Sarah Grace Sweet's descendents say that she was born in Hoosick.

In 1779, Samuel Sweet is the only Sweet in the Hoosick Taxlists, Albany County.

Too many Amos'. Who's line is it anyway?

This is the old information that was submitted to the Church, but also to all descendents of Amos Jr. and Mary Dorcas.

The problem is that the information on Amos is incorrect.

There are multiple Amos' born in 1766.

Amos and Hannah Richardson Sweet
had Amos 30 Jun 1766 in Attleboro.  He is not our ancestor.

Our Amos did not marry two women:  1.  Mercy Carpenter and 2. Mary Dorcas.  They were having children at the same time, and Mercy's husband was in Canada.

Mercy's husband Amos was the son of Amos and Elizabeth Straight Sweet.  He was born 5 Mar 1766, and died 10 May 1838.  He is not our ancestor.

I have a birth date of 5 Feb 1766.  I cannot find proof to whom it belongs.
I have a death date of 1832.  I have not found whom that date belongs to either.
     These may be the dates of our Amos.

David's Amos was born 26 Dec 1755.  I have not found his wifes name but Amos receives the land at his father's death.  Land records may include her name.

Beekman Amos is thought to have been born about 1754.  (This is David's Amos:  born 26 Dec 1755)

Amos of Milford was born 15 Mar 1784 and died 28 Jan 1823.  This makes him too young to be the parents of the children listed above.

Ulysses Amos is a bit hard to read in 1800.  He has too many children in the household but he is the correct age.  He deserves more research.

  Dorcas as the most common name of Amos' wife, mother of Sarah Grace.
  Marriage 1783, by two seperate submissions.
  Amos birth 1766 in Hoosick, Rensselaer, NY,  Death 1848.
  Mercy's husbands birth and death - which are incorrect.

Amos Sweet 1766 - 1848 of Hoosick, New York
Mary Dorcas// 1768 - 
  Married 1783
    Children:  Amos 1791-  (Aunt Betty Wood had 1784)
                    Elias 1795 -   ( Aunt Betty Wood had 1791)
                    Sarah Grace - 1799  (This information is from her children) in Hoosick, Ren, NY
                    Lydia - 1802

 "French and Indian" raid and burning of Hoosick in August 1754. North American forces fought with each other over the next two years although war was not declared until 1756.

    Ancestry of Sarah Grace Sweet - Take 2

    Sarah Grace Sweet was born 13 Jan 1799 in Hoosick, Rensselaer, New York to Amos and Dorcas Sweet. She grew to womanhood in New York State.  Her parents lived in the Mohawk Valley.  Sarah married, first, Zenos C. Warren and then Daniel Wood.(1)  

    1800 CENSUS SEARCH: (Sarah would have been aged 0-1)
    In 1800, there are three Amos Sweet's that are the head of households.  Other members of the family are not listed in this census, but are a tally mark in the correct age group.  The three Amos' are:

    1. Amos Sweet: Beekman, Dutchess, New York 
    2. Amos Sweet: Ulysses, Cayuga, New York
    3. Amos Sweet:  Burlington, Otsego, New York. (2) 

    1.  Amos Sweet, living next door [house #309 of census].   His family includes:
    ..............males aged 0-9
    ..............1 males aged 10-15
    ..............1 males aged 16-25
    ..............1 males aged 26-44  (?Amos?)

    ..............1 females aged 0-9
    ..............1 females aged 10-15
    ..............1 females aged 16-25
    ..............1 females aged 26-44  (?Dorcas?)


    2.  Amos Sweet,  from Ulysses, Cayuga, New York.  His family includes:
    ..............4 males aged 0-9
    ..............2 males aged 10-15
    ..............1 males aged 45 or older

    ..............1 females aged 0-9
    ..............1 females aged 10-15
    ..............1 females aged 26-44


    3.   Amos Sweet from Burlington, Otsego, New York.  His family includes:
    ..............1 male age 0-9
    ..............1 male 26-44

    ..............2 females age 0-9
    ..............1 female age 26-45


    To make sure that I didn't miss another Amos that may have been indexed under another name, I did a line by line search for Amos in  Stephentown and Hoosick, both of Rensselaer, New York. There were no Amos' living there that were enumerated in 1800.  (6)

    A search for "Amos" and another for "Sweet" in Kent, Rhode Island and  did not prove to be fruitful.  No possible Amos' were living in Rensselaer either, when doing a search by given name hoping to find our Amos indexed incorrectly.  It appears that these three are the only head of household by the name of Amos.  I double checked on familysearch.org 1800 Census. (7)

    There remains the possibility that Amos and his wife Dorcas were living with one of their family members and was only enumerated as a tally mark with their daughter Sarah Grace.

    1810 CENSUS SEARCH:  (Sarah Grace would have been 10-11)

    In the year 1810, there are only two Amos Sweet's that show up on a name search in Heritage Quest. Another  is included in FamilySearch's results.  They include:

    1.  Amos Sweet in Beekman, Dutchess, New York.  His household includes:
    .............. 2 males aged 0-9
    ..............2 males age 10-15
    ..............1 male age 26-44

    ..............1 female aged 10-15
    ..............1 female aged 16-25

    ..............1 female, aged 26-44  (wife, Sally Sweet,  age 33)

    Massachusetts have superior records and a birth record for this Amos is easily found.

    4.  Amos Sweet, was born 30 Jan 1766 to Amos Sweet and Sally Sweet in Attleboro, Bristol, Massachusetts. (10)  This would make him about 44 years old in this census.  Amos married Sally Sweet on 16 Jun 1796, also in Attleboro.  She was born 19 Aug 1777. (11, 12)  Sally would have been 33 at the time of this census.

    Amos and Sally Sweet had the follow children in 1810, all born in Attleboro, Bristol, Massachusetts.

    1.   Sally Sweet, born 3 October 1796  (aged 13-14 in 1810)   (13)
    2.   Clarisa Sweet, born 9 Jun 1798 (aged 11-12 in 1810)     (14)
    3.   Sumner Sweet,  born 27 May 1800  (age 9-10 in 1810)  (15)
    4.   Margaret Sweet, born 14 Feb 1802 (age 8 in 1810)        (16)
    5.   Amos Sweet, born 3 Dec 1804 (age 5 in 1810)               (17)
    6.   Hannah Sweet, born 19 Feb 1810  (age 0 in 1810)         (18) 
    Although Sarah Grace has never been attached to Attleboro, that I know of, the birth date of Amos has been used at times.  The Amos Sweet from Attleboro, born 30 Jan 1766, is a distant relative to Sarah Grace, but is most definitely proven to not be her father. 

    In 1800 the "Sweat" family is starting to move into New York.  in the 1800 Census there are five Sweat's including:  Eleazer, Elijah, Elijah Jr., and Stephen in Chenango County, and Rincon  Sweat in Queens.  (19) 

    By 1810, the "Sweat's" have begun moving into the Rennslaer area, with 20 households living in that county.  In Grafton we find an Amos as well as two other households.
    #5 Amos Sweat of Grafton, Rennslaer,New York  is among the first in the census to show them living in Rensselaer County, New York

                  Amos Sweat   page 351 (5 away from widow)  both  aged 16-25

    Other areas in Rensselaer and their Sweet residence include:
    Berlin:      Laml
                   Luther.  FindaGrave #84977361 shows Luther was born Apr. 3, 1783 in North Kingstown, Washington, Rhode Island.  He died 3 Nov, 1861 and is buried in the Sweet Family Cemetery.  Luther married Sarah Sweet (1783-1850).  Children attached to him there that would have been with him in the 1810 census show Lutch Jr, (1805-1853); Sarah Sweet (1807-1850) and possibly Hannah Ann (1810-1821). (22)  (27 in 1810.)  
                   Saml T.  A possible match for this Samuel can be found on Findagrave, marker #22301788.  Samuel Jr. was born 20 July 1756 in East Greenwich, Kent, Rhode Island to Samuel Sweet and Lydia Ellis.  He died 18 Jun 1819 in Berlin, Rensselaer, New York.  He married Elizabeth Griggs on 10 January 1789.  They were the parents of Holden Sweet, born May 1792 and died 5 September, 1866.  Holden married Polly Denison.  He is buried in the Center Berlin Baptist Cemetery in Berlin Rensselaer, New York.

    Most of the names of Sweat were compared against Alford Sweet's Descendants of John Sweet, to no avail.  These names are not typical Sweet names that have previously been compiled.  (21)

    A list of Interments in Rensselaer County on the USGenWeb, shows many Sweets having lived in the area. The name returns to "Sweet" as there are no "Sweat"s listed as there was in the 1810 census.

    Findagrave shows Amos B. Sweet born  1 September 1790, died 5 January 1847 at 56y 4m 4d.  He married Lucy Sweet born 24 January 1791, died 21 June 1872 aged 81y 4m 28d.
