Thanks for the help Eric. It may take me quite a while to check those leads. But I will post if I find anything worthwhile. In the meantime, this may help. My father says that his grandparents were shipwrecked on Inagua *southernmost island in the Bahamas*. They landed on Northwest Point and lived off of the land until the island became more populated. We have no idea where they were headed though. My great-grandmother and her parents were Hendersons, but they were supposedly Native Americans (Sioux perhaps) that were from somewhere near Niagra Falls. So perhaps my Sweetings hooked up with the Hendersons in Bermuda and then were going to go to another island... maybe Barbados? And then ended up in the Bahamas. What do you think? Its a bit convoluted but I am told that Missy (my great great grandmother) and Mariah (my great grandmother) spoke very rarely. Chalk it up to Sioux deep thoughts or something. So no one living knows very much of anything. Oh well... wish me luck... I will need it!
