Abby Sweet Brown, my ggrandmother, died in 1899 while residing in Exeter. She actually died in the adjacent Town of Richfield at my grandmother's home, I suspect. Her name was Flora Brown (Mrs. George M.) Ames Abby's father's name was Abram. He shows up in the 1860 census as a resident of Exeter. Those are the only names I have, even though I know there were other Sweets in the area. I suspect that the migration was from southern New England (quite possibly RI), to eastern upstate NY to Otsego County, but I have no facts alas. Does this help? Dean Ames McCallum
