My name is Joshua Sweatt and I have been researching the Sweatt Genealogy family history and other related families for several years. The majority of the Sweatt family lived in Marlboro (Marlborough) County, South Carolina in the 1700 & early 1800’s. I am a descendant of Cornelius Sweatt/Sweat (abt. 1857 – 1933) and Mary Louise Middleton (abt. 1859 – 1928) from the Bennettsville, South Carolina area presumed to be buried at Shiloh Methodist Church in Bennettsville, SC. Cornelius and Mary had nine children Mary Ann, John H., Daniel Robert, Rufus, Agnes Mae, Marvin, Kirby, Elizabeth and Arthur Raymond. I am a direct descendant from the previously mentioned Marvin whom traveled North to Ohio with his brother Kirby to the Cleveland, Ohio area. Though from the Ohio area strong family roots remain in North and South Carolina.
On the flip side I have been researching the Yannayon family history. I am a descendant of Mandas John Yannayon and Melza Flickinger from Media, Ohio a descendant of Fredrick Carl Yannayon originally from Wurtenburg, Germany. The (Melza) Flickinger family is in relations to that of the Flickinger Family History book.
Additional Photos and/or tree information have been added for the surnames of Ballis, Cain, Dowling, Flickinger, Hilditch, Mulgrew, Smoyer, Yannayon.
