THE GENEALOGY OF JOHN WILLIAM SWEENEY AND SARAH JANE SWEENEY OF GRAND CHENIER, LOUISIANA.

Edited by W. T. Block, Box 62, Nederland, Texas 77627

{In this introduction I will correct errors when I am sure they are errors. I do not take credit for more than editing these writings, most being Edward Chalmers Sweeney's (grandson of Dr. Carter Sweeney) of Chevy Chase, MD. I will make this one continuous writing, separated by Parts 1, etc. 2 errors I will correct immediately. Some writings credit John Wm. as being born in 1810 or 1812, which is absolutely erroneous. He was probably born in 1807 but 1808 at latest. Also some records credit Syrenah Jane as marrying Jules Bouquet and moving to Texas. It was Sarah Ellen that married Bouquet.}---------------------------------------

{FIRST -so much gratitude is due to the following contributers to our knowledge of the J. W. Sweeney families: Edward Chalmers Sweeney, Mrs. Gloria Crain Patrick of Sweeny, Texas; Mrs. Judith Sweeney Kulkarni of Houston; Mrs. Joy Moore of Karnack, Texas; Mrs. Anna Silvia Hayes of SW Louisiana Genealogical library in Lake Charles; Mr. Merritt V. Sweeney of Lake Charles, whose Sweeney genealogy is so complete; Mr. Jesse Vaughan of Houston; Mrs. Mamie McCall Reynaud of Marksville, Louisiana; Mrs. Linda Eagleson Brown of Port Neches, Tx, Mrs. Syble Darnall of Port Lavaca, Tx. and Mrs. Cheryl Young of Beaumont.

John Wm. Sweeney, age 73, M crippled, born MD, both parents born MD.

This lends credence J. W. was probably grandson of Edward of Frederick, Md.

2. "John W. Sweeney Jr. Was First Elected Sheriff by E. C. Sweeney

(reprinted from the Cameron Parish Pilot, January 8, 1970, Centennial Issue.)

John William Sweeney Jr. on Nov. 7, 1871 was elected the first Sheriff of Cameron Parish, which had been created by Act No. 102 of 1870 and was named in honor of Simon Cameron, U. S. Senator of Pennsylvania and Lincoln's Secretary of War. Sweeney held this office for 2 years. However no record of his tenure and discharge of duties remain after a fire on Feb. 26, 1874 destroyed Parish records. During his incumbency he operated a general merchandise business in Cameron which he sold to S. P. Henry in 1873, who with his wife Harriet had come from Ohio and sojourned for a while in New Orleans.

Following his retirement as Sheriff and the sale of his business Sweeney and his wife, Sarah Anne Armstrong, moved to Texas, where they both remained for the rest of their days, raising 12 children. Most of their years were spent in Sugarland or else in the Houston vicinity. Sweeney died on Mar. 18, 1931. Sweeney was born on Grand Chenier on Mar. 6, 1842 (error: he was born in 1847). John W. Sr. and Sarah Jane Hickok Sweeney had taken up residence on the ridge on land still in the Sweeney family. At that time Vermilion Parish with its parish seat in Abbeville, administered that section of present Cameron Parish east of Mermentau River.

Texas, having earlier won independence from Mexico, was a vast new frontier, with Galveston as its principal port. John W. was the 6th of 11 children, born to J. W. Sr and Sarah Jane, both of whom traced their ancestry to Virginia. John W. was born on the old North 100 of Baltimore Co., now Pikesville, MD in 1812 (error--see above). His grandfather, Edward had settled on the Monacacy River (Frederick), MD., receiving land patents from Lord Baltimore's appointee during the 1740s. Edward is reputed to be a descendent of Edward Sweeney, who with his wife Martha and 2 children, had settled in (Elizabeth County), Virginia in 1655.

Many residents of Cameron and Calcasieu parishes are descendents of the following brothers and sisters of John W., Jr." 1) Mary Elizabeth, who married a. Isaac Bonsall, who was killed at the Battle of Mansfield; b. Edmond Vaughan; 2). Henry Sidney, who married Mary Elizabeth Tanner; 3). Syrenah Jane, who married Jules Bouquet {gross error: Syrenah Jane died in infancy; Sarah Ellen married Jules Bouquet-see above} of Calhoun County; 4). Harriet Anne who married a. William McCall (died in war), b. Robert Weatherill; 5). James Hill, married Lou Ellen Smith; 6). George Columbus, Dr. Carter, married Aurelia Miller, dau. of Pierre V. Miller; 7). Virginia, who married Jim Logan of Port Arthur; 8). Andrew, who drowned in gulf (left out); 10). Rev. Frank Newton, who married a. Mary Stine, b. Nancy Kent; d. Gussie St. Cyr.

John W. Jr. married Sarah Anne, daughter of John Armstrong, who like John W. Sr., had farmed in Mississippi until wiped out in 1837 depression and who then moved west to the Louisiana frontier. Sarah Anne's brother John D. married a sister of Milledge McCall; her sister Susan married John Stine, and Martha married Timothy Alexander.

The following are the children of John W. Jr. and Sarah Anne: John, Anna, Frank, Camelia, Oliver, Clarence, Lawrence, Edward, Emma, Katie, Earnest, and Earl. Son John married Hazel Kesper, and sired Anna Gray, who married James J. Noe, governor of Louisiana and for a number of months was the occupant of the Louisiana white house in Baton Rouge.

Son Earl was for many years a neighbor of Lyndon B. Johnson and had refused to sell his land to become a part of LBJ Park. That focused national attention and TV cameras on him. Daughter Anna married Elijah Adams of Harlingen, Tx., a prominent citrus fruit grower of South Texas.------------------------
