From the book, Ficklin Family in America, compiled by Walter Homan
Ficklin and printed in 1912.....
Thomas Ficklin (son of William and Sarah Ficklin), lived all his life in
King George County.  He married Susannah Bruce, daughter of Charles
Bruce of King George (will of Ch. Bruce, King George, 1754).  Thomas
Ficklin will:  proved 3 Dec 1778 named the following children:  (no wife
    1.  Susannah who married Wm. Sweetnaim.
    2.  Ann, who married a Fewell
    3.  Margaret, who married Wm. Jenkins
    4.  Sarah, who married John Swetnam, and had son, John Swetnam, Jr.,
         whose   daughter, Sarah Ficklin Swetnam married a Bryan.
    5.  Elizabeth
    6.  Lucy
    7.  John
(One daughter of Thomas Ficklin married a Duff, and moved to Kentucy.
Another married a Matthews, and died in Virginia.  One daughter, not
mentioned in the will, died before the will was made.....she married a
Bell, for the will mentions a grandson, Lewis Bell.)

Thomas' father, William Ficklin and mother Sarah had three daughters and
four sons.
    William (II)

The book covers Virginia Ficklins, but does not mention any Paynes.  I
research South Carolina Fickling/Ficklins who migrated across GA, AL and
into LA.

Thomas Ficklin, father of Susannah (who married Wm. Sweetnaim) and Sarah (who married John Swetman), died 1778. I don't have his birth date or his childrens.
Thomas' father, William's birth date is estimated at 1690. The Will of Thomas Ficklin mentions daughters, Susannah Sweetnaim, Ann Fewel, Margaret Jenkins, Sarah Swetnam, Elizabeth Ficklin and Lucy Ficklin, son, John Ficklin, son-in-law, Wm. Sweetnaim and John Swetnam; brother, Benjamin Ficklin; nephew, James Bower, grandson, Lewis Bell.
That is the only mention of Swetnaims in the book. I don't know if the book is available at the library....I have a copy here if you'd like me to check for any other names.
