      My source of information is my GG grandmother's letter to the Worthington Family Group circa 1895. Sylvester Jr. b 10/19/1762 , N Kingston , RI , d Petersburg , NY 12/14/1803
      This is a pretty close match to Sylvester Sweet who was born in EastGreenwich (not North Kingstown) on October 7 of that year, the son of Sylvester and Mary (Johnson) Sweet. The will of Sylvester Sr, written in 1804, mentioned grandson Luther Sweet as son of Sylvester Sweet deceased
      Luther b 4/3/1783 ; Benjamin b 1785 ; Polly b 10/21/1787 ;Wanton (my line) b 10/6/1789 Betsey b 8/4/1793 ; Sally b 5/7/1793 ;Phebe b 11/16/1795; Tabitha b 11/16/1797 Harry b 11/27/1798 all in RI.; Lydia b 7/30/1802 in NY.
      Betsey is shown above with birth date three months after Sally's. I deduce that her birth year is wrong and probably should be 1791.
      The family moved to Petersburg , NY in 1799 via the Mohawk Trail. Three boys reached maturity.
      Note that the 1800 census shows Sylvester Sweet Jr still in East Greenwich. The tally has one adult male 26-45, one male 16-26, two boys 10-16, one adult female 26-45, one girl 10-16, and two girls under 10. This is a good match to the list of children shown above, assuming Harry died as a baby, as well as two of the four girls born in the 1790's.
