Looking fro additional information on Winthrop Sweet. He was born 1811 in Sodus, son of Benjamain J. Sweet and Lovina Graham.

He was listed as a farmer living near Williamson in an 1867 business directory.

His obituary from 1896 refers to him as a doctor. Conceivably he was a part-time bonesetter, which was a hereditary part-time occupation among descendants of the Sweets of RI.

He is buried in Macedon Cemetery. Possisble children were Simeon and/or Levi Sweet.

Thanks for any info.
