Jacob Brenton Pyeatt and Eliza H Parkhurst
Jacob Brenton Pyeatt was born c1834 in Indiana. He married on August 5, 1858, in Hancock County, Indiana, to Eliza H Parkhurst who was born c1835 in Indiana. Their marriage license was for Jacob Brenton Pyeatte and Eliza H Parkhurst and was indexed as Greenfield Bk c4:91.
I wonder if Jacob was a son of John and Catherine Pyeatte who were in Marion Township, Grant County, Indiana, on the 1850 census. Jacob was a carpenter by trade.
Jacob and Eliza had the following known children:
I first find Jacob and family on the 1860 census of Charlotteville, Jackson Township, Hancock County, Indiana, as follows:
- Catherine Pyeatt b: c1859 IN
- Mary Pyeatt b: c1862 IN
- Ruth Pyeatt b: c1869 IN

- Pyatt, Eliza age 25 born IN / female
- Pyatt, Catherine age 1 born IN / female
- White, Jemimia age 37 born IN / female / serves
This family was enumerated #790/745 28 June 1860 pg 677 (ancestry image 241/339).
I do not have them on the 1870 census.
