George W and Hettie Moss Pyeatt

George Washington Pyeatt was born c1860 in Missouri to William and Dianna Hornsby Pyeatt.

He married Hettia Mars (or Moss or Mors) January 14, 1886 in Eminence, Shannon County, Missouri. According to their marriage license, they were married at Richard Johnson's by G W Rowlett. Hettie was born March 1, 1867 in Ohio to G. W. and Sarah Ann Taylor (or Tayler) Mars (or Moss or Mors). She died in Jackson Township, Douglas County, Missouri, May 4, 1912. Hettie is buried in the Blanch Cemetery.

George and Hettie had four known children:

According to Stephanie Kuykendall's family information, Emma M Pyeatt Goss died shortly after her daughter was born. Then, Joseph married Rosa Cox before 1914. They had a child in 1914 in Dunklin County, Missouri, Ira Lenard Goss who was premature and only lived 2 weeks. Does anyone know where Emma Goss was buried?

I have a photo which was a possession of W B Pyeatt (brother to George) which says on the back "W B Pyeatt's oldest brothers children". It has a young girl about 3-4 years old standing by a seated child of about a year old. I feel that it is a photo of two of George and Hettie's children.
