Sweatt Family Genealogy Forum
The names don't ring any bells but then again I have no info on Dovie Sweatt except her marriage clipping from the newspaper. It mentions her sister Alice and her uncle R. H. Askew of Ingleside. He was a substantial land owner I believe. I had thought that Dovie may have come from Kentucky but can't find anything there. I do know that she married William Scaife Knox. They separated shortly after my mom was born around 1905. Mom was raised by her grandparents. I don't know if they ever got divorced, at least I have no info to indicate that they did. I believe that Dovie died in Memphis, TN in the early 1950's but can't find anything on that either. Arkansas can even find their marriage certificate. They did send me a copy of the registry but the name was shown as Swett but mom and the newspaper clippings all spelled it Sweatt. The connections you have do seem strange and maybe we can connect them someway.
