Descendants of John & Alpha Lewis

This is where I am stuck. There is no paper trail of John Sweet's Ancestors that I can find or Alpha Lewis. I did find a information about a cemetery near Oswego, NY that may or may not be helpful.

So far everyone that I happen to run into like living relatives has been stopped right here as there was a fire in Oswego, Ny court House which destroyed all their records. So I am stuck. Not giving up just stuck.

Notes for JARED L. SWEET:
Jared immigrated to canada I guess he was a millitia man during 1812-1815 and the year of the record is 1875 age 84

The way the record shows he must have participated in the war of 1812. Probably was screwed by the Us governmant like many others and immigrated to Canada. (that is my asumption.)
