Grand-daughter of Miles McSweeney - Father John M. McSweeney, I have found a birth record online for a baby girl born April 26, 1925 in Greensboro NC with the father listed as John M. McSweeney, a son of Miles McSweeney. This baby girl was my mother-in-law, Frances McSweeney (changed her last name to Mann at age 18) Rogers. She was married to Stewart Lansing Rogers Jr. of Greensboro NC. Frances was abandoned by her mother at the age of 5 and left with a trusted family friend and babysitter, Mrs. Mann. Mrs. Mann had 2 boys but always wanted a girl. So she took in Frances (Frankie) and raised her, providing a fine home. At age 18, Frances legally changed her last name to Mann. As a family, we have not found out the name of her birth mother. This is not in the online birth records. 1 birth record does list this baby as Frances Long McSweeney. Please contact me if you have any information. Thanks!
