Welcome to Sweatt Genealogy
First, 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.
Second, or maybe as important 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.
Also, I am a direct descendant from the previously mentioned Marvin whom traveled North to Ohio with his brother Kirby to the Cleveland, Ohio area. Moreover, though from the Ohio area strong family roots remain in North and South Carolina. Find more on the Sweatt surname.
***Here is the current status of the Sweatt Family Tree currently being worked on. Specifically, the relations of Henry William Sweat buried at Shiloh Methodist Church in Bennettsville, SC. IF YOU HAVE Y-DNA TAKEN AS A DESCENDANT of this line PLEASE CONTACT ME. We are looking to verify the lines***
