Bio and Links
Bio Photo A few years ago I had a life event that changed my world. During that down time, being a very busy person prior to this, I was going stir crazy. Got online one day typed in my mothers maiden name and was overwhelmed by the response. At the time I thought, well this will be fun for a while. Years later I am earlobe deep in genealogy and still loving it. Find a Grave has been a great resource for me as well as pushing me out the door to take pictures. Which I also enjoy very much.
The family names I am researching are: Mosley, Appleby, Fountain, Calder, Doughty, Moore, Coolbroth, Colbath, Coolbrith, Colbreath, Galbraith, Sweetland, Swetland, Sweatland, Pease, Elwell and more. I welcome any additional information or corrections.
The photo used in my Bio is of my Grandparents: Charles A. Coolbroth Sr. and Elizabeth A. Sweetland Coolbroth.

Sweetland Memorials
Hi Darlene,

I have sent you some messages via edits, without sending myself a copy, so I have lost track of what I have requested and what I have not, so I apologize in advance for any duplicates. I am not sure how duplicates are handled, but we have duplicates for the following memorials:

Henry S. Sweetland 380918977 with 107400377 and
Amanda H. Thomas 38091954 with 107400414. I don't know if it is appropriate to ask you to delete your memorial or to ask Rebecca to delete her memorials. Unfortunately I added pictures to Rebecca, before I found your memorial. Also, your memorials are listed in the Common Cemetery in Union, Maine and they are actually buried in the Village Cemetery in South Thomaston, Maine.

You also have the following Sweetlands, buried in the Common Cemetery in Union and they are also at the Village Cemetery in South Thomaston.

Henry's parents...

James Sweetland (1807-1868) #38096551, his wife Catherine W. Martin #38096601.

James Sweetland (1774-1851) #38096872 and his wife Eunice Post #38096910.

Henry is my Gr. Gr. Grandfather, James & Catherine, My Gr. Gr. Gr's. and James & Eunice, my Gr. Gr. Gr. Gr. Grandparents.

I don't know if you recall, but it was through you that I found a memorial to Abbie "Kate" Sweetland, daughter of Henry and Amanda, and attached to that you had my Gr. Aunt Pauline Gupill, that no one was aware of. Still amazed at how that came about... thank you!

If you would let me know how we should proceed with these corrections I would appreciate it.

As always, thank you for your work on these memorials..

If you would like to consider transferring these memorials to my care, I would make the corrections myself and eventually write the bio's.

Abbie Kate Sweetland Guptill 38082932
Hi Darlene,

I apologize if I sent this to you via edits, but I don't see it in my pending edits so I am leaving this message for you...

This is a duplicate memorial for my Great Grandmother. Abbie is not buried in this cemetery, she is buried at the Head of the Bay Cemetery in Owls Head, a/k/a Hix Cemetery on the Fisk lot of her grandmother and grandfather.

Her memorial number with photograph is #157152841.

I am very grateful for the memorial that you posted however, as someone else attached a memorial for her daughter, Pauline Guptill. I have been looking for Pauline since I discovered her Birth Record in South Thomaston, Maine. It appears no one in the family (living) was aware of Pauline as she died at a little over a year old and was buried in Savannah, where my Gr Grandfather was working at the time. I am so happy to have found her after searching for some time now.

Mahala R (Pease) Sweetland Memorial #37168789
I am curious about what evidence led you to conclude that Mahala's parents were James and Mahala Emily (Ransom) Pease. This is understandable, but incorrect. Their daughter was Mahala Irene Pease (1829-1878).
It seems very likely that the subject person was named Mahala Ransom Pease in honor of Mahala Emily Ransom, but why and by whom is still a puzzle.
There are online trees that say that Nathan Pease (b. Appleton, 17 Jul 1796) was Mahala R's father, though I have been unable to find positive evidence of this. There is circumstantial evidence that connects Nathan to the Hart family of Saint George, the town where the Sweetlands lived, though why he would name a daughter after his cousin's wife is yet another puzzle. Any evidence you have about Mahala's origins might be helpful.

Harriet R Perry Sweetlalnd
Darlene, I have been researching the Perry family of Maine and am especially interested in information on Harriet's father, Warren Perry married to Hannah Cook Clark. I have tried for years to find out who Harriet's grandparents were (parents of Warren Perry) with no luck whatsoever. Harriet's sister was Izora Perry who married John Gleason in Union, Maine, who are my children's great great grandparents. If you know anything at all about Warren Perry's ancestry I would be most happy to hear from you. Thank you!

Alanson Moore Find A Grave Memorial# 37955191
HI Darlene,

You posted this memorial (and many of the Moores) are you by any chance related? I just added all of Alanson's siblings in a note. I have materials on the Moore/Nelson family. I've also contacted Bonnie who appears to have an interest in this family also.

Mahala Peased
My name is Missy and I came across your picture of Mahala Pease Sweatland whose mother is Mahala Ransom Pease sister to my 5x great grandmother Sophia Ransom Wotton. I would love to share any information you have on the family in Maine as I hit a roadblock on Sophia and am missing a generation or two. Sophia was born in Connecticut around 1780 and died in Enfield, ME. I'm looking for information on Mahala and Sophia's parents. I'm assuming the family was in Maine by the time Mahala was born. All the sisters married in Maine.

Thanks Again
