Northrop Sweet

(1802–81)

Northrop Sweet was born in New York. Sometime before June 1830, he and his wife, Elethan Harris, moved to Palmyra, New York. In October of that year, Sweet joined The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and was called to serve a mission (Doctrine and Covenants 33). Sometime before June 1831, he moved to Kirtland, Ohio, where he was ordained an elder. However, he soon left the Church for unknown reasons.
