I am trying to find information on Rufus Sweeney 1835-1862.

Moses Sweeney 1734-1813 MARRIED Elizabeth Johnson 1744-1832

They had Mary, Joseph, Charles, John, Daniel, and you stated also Millie.

Joseph Sweeney1760-1846 MARRIED Nancy Whitten 1764-1852

They had Moses, John William, Elizabeth, Shephard, Lucy, Nancy, Lindsey, and Susan

Lindsey Sweeney 1809-1884 MARRIED Virginia Neel 1814-1898
They had Preston, Rufus, Duquesna, Cyrus W., Chin Jane

OK, here is where I would like more information
I came across a census that had Preston Sweeney as well as Rufus Sweeney in it. Also had a Nancy Sweeney if my memory serve me correct and a new baby named Mary Sweeney. Im not sure if their residence at the time was a boarding house of some type or not. The census was in Ky.
I found on someone else's family tree that supposedly Rufus Sweeney died in 1862 in the siege or battle of Corinth in AK. I then found a later census with a Nancy Reynolds and William Reyolds with her daughter Mary Sweeney in Illinois. Nancy's last name may have been McKeel.

I am trying to find out if Mary is Rufus' daughter, and if he is the Rufus Sweeney that is Lindsey Sweeney's son. Mary is my great great great grandmother.
I'm trying to see if I descend from Moses and Elizabeth Sweeney.

Thanks in advanced if you can give me any information.
