Thank you for your reply.I have not traced the Sweatt family back to England.The only information I have on Edward Carroll Sweatt and his ancestry is what I have found on the internet.
I am going to Salt Lake City in April on my annual genealogy trek.I am going to work some on the Sweatt family.I am also going to work on other families.I would like to keep in touch with you through the Sweatt message board.
I descend from Edward Carroll Sweatt and Sarah Ann Tuggle through their daughter Nancy Jane Sweatt, who married William Russell Shannon.Where do you fit into the Sweatt family tree?
I think I can say for sure that I descend from Edward Carroll Sweatt because a brother of my maternal grand- mother had the middle name of Carroll.Going back to William Clinton Sweatt, in the 1850 Federal Census his wife's name was Mary.
I have a copy of guardianship records from Ellis County, Texas, for Edward Carrol Sweatt that I got off the internet.The record shows all the siblings of my Nancy Jame Sweatt, but not Nancy Jane, because Nancy Jane was married in January 1854 and the guardianship paperwork was recorded in Texas after Nancy Jane Sweatt and William Russell Shannon were married.
I will get back to you.I would like to try and get the Sweatt family information in some kind of order.
