E Ferdinand and Elizabeth Matthews Pyatt

Eldridge Ferdinand Pyatt was born in Missouri in April of 1851 to Elisha and Frances Bohle Pyatt and died December 24, 1906, in St. Louis, St. Louis County, Missouri of congestion of the brain. Eldridge married before 1880 Elizabeth 'Lizzie' Matthews probably in St. Louis County, Missouri. Lizzie was born May 2, 1858, in England to Henry and Emma Boswell Matthews and died March 20, 1938, at 4412a Chouteau Avenue in St. Louis, St. Louis County, Missouri. Both Eldridge and Lizzie were buried in the New Pickers Cemetery, St. Louis, St. Louis County, Missouri. This cemetery has been moved and renamed more than once. It is now called Gateway Gardens.

The children of Eldridge and Lizzie Pyeatt:

Eldridge and family appear as follows on the 1880 census of Allenton Township, St. Louis County, Missouri:

This family was enumerated #20 1st Jun 1880 pg 2 ED 187. Their neighbors were the Frederick (#1) and William C (#9) Wengler families plus #2 John C Cloak, #3 John Demive?, #4 Isaiah Brown, #5 Julia Des Moulin, #6 Thomas A Renehaw, #7 James T Ferguson, #8 James C Curry #10 Jane Billups, #11 David Green, #12 Jane E Waggoner, #13 Timothy Murphy, #14 Henry C Waggoner, #15 John Clemone?, #16 John T Boots, #17 Henry Mathews, #18 Henry Paine, #19 Christ Heidel, #21 G? Robert, #22 Amela De Will, #23 William J Ritchey, #24 William K Cloak, #25 Nelson W Allen, #26 John Freymeyer, and #27 Pins? Haden. Henry and Emma Mathews at #17 were Emma's parents. Their household included her siblings: Edward, Belle, Louise, Daisey and Charles. I believe Emma J Waggoner age 27 at #14 and Sarah Clemone age 22 at #15 were her sisters as well.

Strangely enough, they were enumerated again in St Louis City near Eldridge's brother, Jacob Pyeatt, who was at the same address as John J Devine. So, did they actually move, or, was one of the enumerations marked with the wrong township, etc.? The second enumeration is as follows:

This family enumerated Dist 347 vol 41 ed 347 sh? line 42: #3005? Gratiot Street, St Louis ( image 7/37). Eldridge was not on the 1880 St Louis City Directory. So, it appears they may have moved between the first and second enumerations.

By the 1900 census they appeared as follows:

This family now lived at #4432 Hunt Avenue and was enumerated at 183/413/3/76.

The son, Eldridge Jr, appeared as follows on the St. Louis death register entry:
Pyeatt, Eldridge d: 10-29-1900 vol 41 pg 375 / certificate #8250 / single / 11 years old / born: Missouri / address: 4411 Hunt Avenue / Disease or cause of death: Shock and injuries from being struck by train / white male / attending physician: Dr Theo G? / interment: New Pickers Cemetery / undertaker: Geor Krieghauser Undertaking

Eldridge Sr appears as follows on the St. Louis death register a few years later:

(sanitorium?) / white male / 55 years old / married / born: Missouri / father: Elisacha Pyatt born Missouri / mother: Francis Bohle born Virginia / occupation: laborer / Disease or cause of death: Congestion of Brain / attending physician: Dr W G Trizzer / interment: New Pickers Cemetery / undertaker: Geor Kriegshauser Undertaking

By the 1910 census Lizzie was living with a son and a married daughter in a blended household in St. Louis as follows:

This family was enumerated #257/258 at #233 Vista Avenue (Ward 24; image 26/36). Living next door was her son Charles Pyatt and his family. We know that Katherine had died by this time as Isabella, Robert and Charles account for the three children still living.

Charles died in 1911 and his death certificate is as follows:

Lizzie was still living and widowed by the 1920 census when she appeared with her son, Robert, and his family as follows in St. Louis:

This family was enumerated 118/493/5/97 #4448a Norfork Avenue. Her son, Charles', widow and his son were living in Maplewood Township, St. Louis County, Missouri, with Katherine's new husband and her mother and siblings:
