I know this is probably a long shot but my Great Grandmother was Carrie Sweat. She was born April 20, 1872, possibly Quebec, Canada. Married William Elston and had 1 child, Ralph. Cannot find Carrie anywhere!!

Hi; I am a former Covington Residence, having been born in Rose Hill, lived in Blue Springs & Opp. My great grandmother was Martha Sarah(Mattie) Sweat, born Montg Co about 1857(I do not have records in front of me so I'm working from memory)She was the dau of William Collin Sweat & Mary A.L, Milligan. She married Samuel Howell, had one child & moved to Rose Hill. With the exception of Wm Collin who died in Civil War, all are buried Mt Gilead in Rose Hill. Can you make any connection with your Sweat Family? Thank you. Betty Campbell

This William Jasper Martin's daughter, Mary Jane married Evan Robbins in Covington Co, Al. But that is all I know of them. (may have gotten that much from you..who remembers!) Mary Jane Martin Robbins was born April 1842 died 1946 in Pensacola, Fl. I know that she and Evan were divorced and she had a daughter named Lena C Robbins who married Counts Rigdon, also of Covington Co, AL. Lena died in Meritt Island, Orange Co, Fl in 1991. Sorry I cannot help you on the Martin family any further.
