He married on January 1, 1843, in Bond County, Illinois, Mary Ann Harris (d/o Thomas Harris & Elizabeth ?). Their marriage bond is for 'Cornelius Piatt' and 'Mary Ann Harris' vol A pg 145. Mary was born in 1824 in Kentucky and died in 1885 and is buried in the Farwell Cemetery, Barry County, Missouri. (Stone reading "Grandma" has birth date as 1815.)

The children of Cornelius and Mary Ann:

Cornelius and family appear as follows on the Montgomery County, Illinois (22Nd Dist S W Part) 1850 census:

This family was enumerated 2 Oct 1850 #864/880 pg 155. Living next door at #865/881 was Cornelius' brother, Henry Piatt, and family. His mother Rachel was living with Cornelius' sister, Elizabeth Wright and family at #867/883.

The family had changed by the 1860 census of Vanburenburgh, Montgomery County, Illinois (T7NR2W), as follows:

The family was enumerated #1607 on 15 Jul 1860(ancestry image 223/358). Their neighbors were #1602 Greenbury Mathews, #1603 Louis Humble, #1604 Thos Kearnes, #1605 Peter Rochk, #1606 Henry Piatt (Cornelius' brother), #1608 James Davis, #1609 Elija Wright, #1610 John Qualls, and #1611 William Whitten.

By the 1880 census of Roaring River, Barry County, Missouri, Mary appears as follows with her children:

Her son, Silvester, lived a few houses away: Is the Thomas above the one who died in October of 1927 in Roaring River Township, Barry County, Missouri who was born August 1, 1852 in Illinois? Most things seem to fit including the fact that he was still a bachelor at 76 years of age. The informant was B F Wayt. If this Thomas had property, his estate administration would probably offer a lot of information on heirs (brothers, sisters, nieces and nephews).
