MALCOLM LONDON SWEAT WAS MY GRANDFATHER. HIS FATHER WAS AARON SWEAT WHO MARRIED NANCY PEAVY (FULL BLOODED CHEROKEE), AARON AND NANCY ARE SUPPOSED TO BE BURIED IN THE PLEASANT HILL UNITED METHODIST CEMETARY IN WALLACE, SC. (THERE ARE NO HEADSTONES FOR EITHER OF THEM).THEY HAD QUITE A FEW CHILDREN - ELIZABETH (DIED AT AGE 6, ALSO BURIED IN SAME CEMETARY)-CAROL, CARRIE, JOHN, SPENCER, AMANDA, EBB ELBERT, ELBERT, SARA AMELIA, CHARLES PEAVY, ELLEN E., JAMES A., MALCOLM L., ARNOLD, AND M A. MALCOLM WAS BORN IN 1857 AND DIED MAY 27, 1955 AT THE AGE OF 98 (WE HAVE DEATH CERTIFICATE). HE WAS ALSO MARRIED 6 TIMES (TWICE TO ONE WIFE) THE NAMES WE HAVE ARE MINNIE, BONNIE, ALZORA BRADLEY, AND ELIZA ALFORD. MALCOLM IS BURIED BESIDE ELIZA IN THE OLD ROSEMONT CEMETARY IN CLINTON, SC. WE HAVE BEEN TO THEIR GRAVE SITES. HIS HEADSTONE WAS VANDALIZED SO THE CITY REPLACED IT AND PUT THE WRONG DEATH DATE ON IT BUT AS I SAID WE HAVE THE CORRECT DATES. HIS LAST KNOWN RESIDENCE WAS LOCKHART, SC. HE TOO HAD QUITE A FEW CHILDREN - AARON, CLYDE (MY FATHER), NANCY (MARRIED A COKER), LESLIE (CALLED LESSIE - MARRIED A MCCLOUD) THEODORE P.(ROBERT), MARTHA, ML (DIED AT BIRTH), RICHARD, LILLY (MARRIED A KELLY), AND SARA. MALCOLM LIVED IN S.C., ALABAMA, AND GEORGIA AT SOME POINT IN TIME. HE WAS BORN IN BENNETTESVILLE, S.C. HE ALSO LIVED WITH HIS SON CLYDE WHEN HE DIED. HE DIED FROM A CEREBRAL VASCULAR ACCIDENT (BASICALLY A HIT IN THE HEAD FROM SOMETHING). HE LIVED HIS LIFE AS A CARPENTER AND FARMER.
MALCOLMS FATHER AARON WAS THE SON OF BENJAMIN WHO MARRIED A ROSE OR ROSA. WE ARE TRYING TO PROVE THE CHEROKEE INDIAN BACKGROUND OF NANCY PEAVY. WE WERE TOLD THAT SHE ORIGINALLY A RAINWATER AND THE GOVERNMENT GAVE ALL THE INDIANS AMERICAN NAMES BEFOR THE TRAIL OF TEARS. (SO FAR THIS IS UNPROVEN)
THIS IS ALL I HAVE FOR NOW. IF ANYONE KNOWS OF MALCOLM OR ANY OF HIS FAMILY PLEASE SHARE WITH US WHAT YOU HAVE.
