Howard County
Maryland, USA
Death: Aug. 1, 1930
Baltimore City

Alonzo Sweeten was born in Maryland but lived for a time around 1875 in Akron, Ohio. By the time of his marriage at his mother's house on Wolf St. in Baltimore, (1 July 1880,) he had come back to stay. One of his brothers married one of his wife's sisters, Almira Hood. He was a worker, then a foreman, in a tin plate factory where cups were made. In 1886, he became a member of Mechanics Lodge #38, Knights of Pythias. After moving frequently within Baltimore, the family settled on Broadway, across from Johns Hopkins Hospital, and took in boarders. They were members of the Church of Our Savior, Episcopal. Mr. Sweeten died suddenly. Their church having no cemetery, arrangements for his burial at Govans Presbyterian Churchyard were made by a relative-in-law, Harry Darling.
