I'm researching my greatgreat grandfather, Isaac M Sweeny (or Sweeney) born Feb 1831 in Vermont, died Jan 1897 in Goshen, Washington County, Arkansas.
Isaac was married to Sarah E Bartlett; they had 5 children: Charles, Ulysses Grant, Verona (my great-grandmother), Agetha/Agatha, and Hervie/Hervey.
Isaac appears in the 1850 US census in Rutland, VT living with another family. That's all the information we've been able to find for him in Vermont - other than he lists Vermont as his place of birth in US censuses. One of his children also listed his place of birth as French Canada or Vermont at various times.
Anyway, I'm here hoping to gain some access to records or other information that will help us along in our research.
