Update about blog

Come on over to my other blog, Alchemy of Clay and Living in Black Mountain NC, where the scenery and my ceramic arts life are combined. I've moved some personal blog posts, (as well as those that are about my ancestors) back here.

His mother, Mrs.Elizabeth Sweet was known as "Grand Aunt" in the family.

Chauncey's wife, who I wrote about in a blog back last September, was Ada Pulsifer Phillips Sweet.

"Ada Phillips grew up in the same household as her cousin and eventual husband...since she was a war orphan and lived with Aunts. She was 35 before she married. She and Chauncey Sweet had no children of their own, but in several census reports from Galveston, there are nieces and nephews listed in their household.

"She lived a long life, dying at 71 in 1932.  Her husband, who was five years younger than she was, remarried..."
in 1936 in San Francisco.

My grandmother's great-Uncle Chauncey Sweet died in California on Feb 11, 1947 when he was 82.  He was buried there.
