There's an Emma Sweetman, wife of George Sweetman in Rochester, NY's Mt. Hope Cemetery. No George showing up though.
In the 1900 census, there's a George "Sweetnam" living as the son of Mary living in Oswego. This George was b. Oct. 1874 in Oswego and is a teamster.
Interesting note under George's "Legal" event about Copithornes in Schull.
From the Nunda, NY News 2-4-1905 "George Sweetman Moves to Rochester. George Sweetman, who has been working in a camera shop at Rochester for several weeks, came home on Saturday evening last and moved his goods this week to that city, having decided to move his mother there and rent his farm, situated about two miles south of Dalton."

Note to self: on westcorkgenealogy.com, I find a William Shannon and Anne Copithorne are parents of Thomas Shannon of Cusovinna, Schull, Cork, and a William Shannon born at Coosane, Schull, Cork, Ireland. THAT William married Elizabeth Swanton of Bawnnaknockane, Schull, Cork.
• Burial. 19 Buried with Thomas "Sweetnam" at Riverside Cemetery in Oswego. So I don't know if he died on Jan. 13, 1901 or in 1946.
