Please take the time to read the following information.

I began this work some years ago and it is a continuing work. I am not sure if I will ever Finnish. I believe it is important for us to know how we got here. There are many involved with how we all become alive. It is not just a one-person decision. That would be a selfish thing to think that way. This I have hope for that when I am long gone maybe some one down the line will appreciate these efforts.
I rely as much as I can to obtain information from living relatives So any help I get is appreciated.

Thank You.



Well John Sweet married to Alpha Lewis the parents of Jared L. Sweet born March 1st 1791 we are talking now ten generations although I do not have a birth date on John you can see I have his sons. I am continuing to move forward. I want to thank A. K. from Michigan and K. S. from Texas you two are great ladies. The information came during the Holidays. This is one of the best presents I have had in my life. There are a couple new photos too and more to come.

I continue my research and I am looking into several surnames besides Sweet. I am also looking for Swiacki, Szpond, Gire, Gain, Grimes, Stone, and Castadore.

The Sweets maternal lines are Gire, Boyd, Stone, and Castadore. They were located in Sanlac County in Michigan. Croswell and Carsonville are the cities I have researched by some family contacts. Castadore and Stone go back to Ireland and I have just recently found them in Canada before immigrating to Michigan and from New York to Canada in 1812-1815.

There are connections to Dota, Arkansas and Carmi, Ill for Gire and Grimes that is my maternal (grandmother fathers mother).

My maternal (My mothers line) is Swiacki, Szpond and I know it reaches to Leszczewo Suwalki Poland and I am not sure if I can get any more than I have due to pre WW1 and WW2 record problems. Joseph Swiacki did have a brother that immigrated with him but I was told he went back shortly after arriving in America. Recently I was asked about Swiacki’s in New York so any information would be great.

Bower Beanblossom, Haifley are my wife's line and they are from Iowa in Washington County near or in the cities of Washington and Brighton, Iowa.


My special thanks to everyone for the information they have provided and you know who you are.

There may also need corrections to the information that I already have so please provide me with the corrections.
