Generation No. 1

He married SARAH PERRY.

Notes for EPHRAM SWEATT:
This is a eulogy written by his son at the time of his death:
My father, the Rev. E. Sweat, was born in Bladen County, N. C., August 6, 1798, and was brought up in that and Robertson county. He was left an orphan at ten years old, but through the kindness of friends was cared for and obtained a small share of education. His mother being a Christian lady, on her death-bed, when he was ten years old, exhorted him to meet her in heaven, which he has always said in his Christian experience was the loudest preaching he ever heard; but he did not seek religion till about twenty years old, he having moved to Marlboro District, S.C., where he had been happily married to Miss Sarah Perry, and became settled in life. He then began to seriously reflect upon his future and the admonitions of a dying mother, and to seek the salvation of his soul. After working himself out of work, as he often expressed himself, just between hope and despair, God for Christ's sake pardoned his sins while alone in the forest, and he joined the Methodist Church, and remained in Marlboro till 1825, at which time he migrated to the frontier settlements of Middle Georgia. He stopped in Pike county among a few white settlers and Creek Indians, and in the organization of a Methodist Church was appointed class leader, and in a short time was licensed to exhort, and after remaining seven years in Pikecounty, he removed to Fayette county, and aided in establishing Churches in those ends of the earth. About 1840 he was licensed to preach, and in 1849 was ordained deacon by Bishop Andrew, and about 1862 was ordained elder at Griffin, Ga. My father has been a member of the Methodist Church about sixty years, and has served the Church in all of her lower offices to acceptability. As a minister, sympathetic and energetic, very searching and pointed in his discourses; as a Christian, he was zealous and exemplary, exhibiting a character worthy the name he had espoused; as a neighbor generous and benevolent. Thus he lived to do good and to get good till the day of his death which was June 18, 1879 at his home three miles east of Fayetteville, Ga., where he bade adieu to earth amidst a large concourse of weeping relatives and friends, with a smile on his countenance, and with his last words saying, "All is well."

Columbus, Ga., June 29, 1879 J. W. Sweatt
