Our Amos is not at all likely to come from Attleborough since Amos stayed there, and had his family there.

1810 Census
4.  Amos Sweet in Attleboro, Bristol, Massachusetts.   (Ruled out because of birth records of children)
..............1 male, aged 0-9       (Amos, age 5)
..............1 male, aged 10-15   (Sumner, age 9-10)
..............1 male, aged 16-25
..............1 male, aged 26-44      (Amos, age 44)

..............2 female, aged 0-9       (Margaret, age 8;  Hannah, age 0)
..............2 female, aged 10-15  (Sally, age 13/14; Clarisa age 11/12)
..............1 female, aged 26-44  (wife, Sally Sweet,  age 33)

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.

  1. I'm sorry I am commenting as a stupid looking empty blog. I was just looking at the software years ago and not really trying to do it.
    Anyway, I have been researching Amos Sweet of the Ulysses census data because he is the first settler of my town. That is how I ran across your blog. My source of census information is:
    DeZeeuw, Carl, past chairperson of the Central New York Genealogical Society. Transcription of Cayuga County Federal Census Abstract 1800. Tree Talks (1984)

    It disagrees with your version of the Amos Sweet Ulysses entry, and when I looked at your scan, it was convincing and disconcerting. I believe the transcription was done very professionally. Now, in reviewing my source, I have found that the discrepancy can be explained, in my favor. There appears to be a tear in the scanned document you display, and the paper is misaligned in your scan, and to the right of the tear, you are seeing the entries of the household above Amos. The transcription looks like below:

    | Male | Female |
    | 0 10 16 26 45 | 0 10 16 26 45 |
    | Firstname Lastname | 10 16 26 45 + | 10 16 26 45 + | Slave
    Cooper Richard | 2 3 . 1 | 1 1 . 1 . | . |
    Amos Sweet | 4 2 . 1 . | 1 1 . 1 . | . |
    Nathaniel Shelden | . . . 1 . | . . . 1 . | . |

    I think this may make you rethink some of your conclusions about who he can not be.

    I don't do the blog. My e-mail is dwaterman@frontiernet.net

  2. From my memory, Hannah's Amos stayed in Attleboro. This comment referrs to Amos of Ulysses, whom I did not research because I ruled him out because of ages as to be our line. I have viewed the image on FamilySearch, counted 12 down on both pages and it will appears to me that
    Amos Sweet / 4 2 0 0 1/ 1 1 0 1 0 / 0 0.
    I may need to look at another source for varification.

  3. I checked ancestry, which shows an image very similar. However, the indexer pulled it as you said. The image, counting down 12, appears to be my way.
    Let me know if you find a better answer.

    1. Look again. There are 26 names on the left page and 27 entries on the right. The top entry appears to be showing through where the top of page 579 is cut off. So look ahead to page 581 and there is the same fancy 2 and matching data at the top of the page. Line up the 26 remaining datas to the names and the results match the professional interpretation of Amos and the people above and below him. The guy below Amos, Nathaniel Shelden, was Dryden's first physician, built the first plank house in town, and had no children.

      Why does this matter to me? I have just written a booklet about Amos Sweet, first settler of Dryden. I Theorize they are Amos and Sally of Attleboro, aided by his brother Elias. Your blog has helped my research but it blows the whole theory if your census data proved correct.

      I would be happy to send you a complimentary copy of the booklet, which we are just starting to sell at the Dryden Town Historical Society. There is not much demographic other than Dryden local history nerds who would read it, but you might also find it interesting.
