Henry A Pyeatt was born c1833 in Missouri to Christopher and ? Pyeatt. He married in St. Louis Co, MO, January 31, 1864, Mary F Allen who was first married to David Hilderbrand on September 12, 1856, in St. Louis Co, MO. Mary was born c1842 in Missouri.
Henry and Mary had the following known child:
Piney Ellen Pyeatt b: c1864 St. Louis Couty, MO
This is how Henry and family appeared on the 1870 census of Meramac Township, St. Louis Co, MO:
Pyatt, Henry A age 37 born MO wm Rail Road laborer $0/$100
Pyatt, Mary F age 28 born MO wf keeping house
Hilterbrand, Mary O age 6 born MO wf at home att school cannot read/write
Hilterbrand, James A age 12 wm at home att school cannot read/write
Pyatt, Piney Ellen age 4 born MO wf at home cannot read/write
Winn, Thomas J age 23 born MO wm farm laborer
Westermann, Felix age 35 born MO wm vintner (this family enumerated #152/154 pg 267 (from index only)
However, the child, Mary O Hilterbrand would have been born around 1864. So, is she Mary's child with a recently deceased David? Why is she listed before the 12 year old boy. Was he a nephew or some other relation to Mary? He was born after Mary and David were married, so, if he was a son of David - he was also a son of Mary.
In January of 1872, Henry's father and step-mother, Christopher and Nancy Votaw Pyeatt, died in Meramac Township near Eureka. They had recently moved near Henry from Jefferson County, MO, where they had sold their farm in 1871. Henry received his portion of his father's estate. I do not recall if he was one of the heirs who assigned their inheritance to Alfred T Radforth.
