The Sweezey's and Sawyer's of Capreol

Updated September 2, 2003

About Our Family Research



The Sweezeys of Capreol originated with Adam Gilmour Sweezey (1890-1967) and Alice Sadie Fraser(1895-1981). Adam was featured in Ripley's Believe It Or Not.His 3 sons are C.N.R. railmen and 3 of his daughters married C.N.R. railmen.Over 50 years a railroader,on his final trip,May 31 1955,his 3 sons worked the train with him.Gilmour was assistant conductor,Don and Ron were brakemen. Adam and his descendants have over 600 years service with the railways. All personal information on living individuals kept private.

Old Capreol saying...Snow in the winter,Blackflies in the summer,Sweezey's all year 'round.

Famous quote by Cornelius Kirwan "I wouldn't get too far under that tree if I were you. It might be shadier than you think".

When you click on one of the family tree's you will find instructions below, but to make things easier, scroll to the right, Right click the oldest ancestor and click 'Make Primary Individual' and you'll see the whole tree. In fact, try Right clicking anyone for added details. I'm limited to 200 people per tree, so if you're not on one tree hopefully you're on another.
