Looking for information on the family of Dorcas Sweet. Dorcas was living in Seneca and Wayne county New York between 1820-1842. Dorcas married first John Clark abt 1820-21. They had son Henry D. Clark in Lodi, Seneca County NY in 1822. A daughter Sophia W. Clark was born in 1825 according to Seneca Co, Ohio history in Rensselaer Co.,NY. John Clark and Dorcas moved to Lyons ,Wayne county between 1822-26. John then died and Dorcas married Elijah Lake from Romulus, Seneca County by 1830. By 1840 they were living in Junius, Seneca County NY. In 1842 they moved to Wyandot County, Ohio. If Dorcas was the daughter of one of the Sweet's living in Seneca County by 1820, she would have been the daughter of Charles, James, Jonathon, or Nicholas. Re: 1820 census all had daughter in her age group. Dorcas was born abt 1800-03. Fayette,Seneca co,NY 1820 census has a James Sweet and John Clark living a couple houses apart. Does anyone have any insight? I would appreciate any help I can get.
