I am looking for any information on a Sweeney Family that settle in Maine in 1870.
Matthew and Margaret (Kennedy)Sweeney (Children: Hannah Jane, Margaret A, Hugh, William, and Mary E)
Both Matthew and Margaret are from Ireland and live for a short time in Givan Wharf (now Harbourville) in Nova Scotia Canada where Hannah and Margaret were born.
They moved in 1865 to Boston for short period where Hugh and William were born and then to Maine (Cumberland Co)in 1870 were Mary was born. In the 1880 they had settle in
Lewiston in Androscoggin Co. Matthew appear on the 1880 Census working in a Cotton Mill as a rag gather.
