The Sweet/Sweat/Swett Family I am interested in lived in Pike County. They came by 1840 with the Mormons including my Brown family. John and Mary Ann Sweat children of John Sweat (b.1789) and Molly Marston. Their grandparents were David Swett (b. 1766) and Elizabeth Akers. David was born Newburyport, MA. John Sweat was born in New Hampshire. John and Mary Ann were born in Andover,Maine. Mary Ann married 1.Joseph Stickney Carlton and 2.Eben Harnden.
John Sweat born 1789 died in the Mormon migration to Utah in 1850. Mary Ann stayed in Pike County, except for living near Nauvoo for a short time. There are Benjamins in the family but the dates do not match. Benjamin b. 1822 Maine, Benjamin b.1793 NH.
Sorry I can not see a connection. Have you searched under the older spelling of Swett?
