St. Peter's Parish - Sweeny, Hughes

A fellow researcher sent this info. I am passing it along, but will continue to post Hughes who fought in Rev. War. In the meantime:
In the SWEENEY family bible 1821-1859 at "The Library of
Virginia" are these two entries:
1. Stephen B. Sweeney of New Kent was married to
Virginia E. Hughes of Hanover on the 8th of March 1821.
2. Virginia E. wife of Stephen B. Sweeney died on the
14th day of Sept 1859 at 10 minutes to 5 oclock p.m. age
55 years 9 months and 2 days.

In the CLOPTON family bible record, 1828-1957 at "The
Library of Virginia" is this entry: Jonathan Sweeney
son of Stephen Brooker Sweeney and Virginia England
Sweeney his wife, was born in New Kent Co on the 15t
day of December 1831

These two bible pages can be viewed online at "The Library of Virginia" site.

Also of interest, the Sweeney family (Swinney) were
early members of St. Peters Parish.
