I wonder if it's possible that the James Henry Pyeatt who moved to Texas with his family is not the same as the one who married Mary Caroline Mitchell in Washington County, Arkansas. Did he come back to Arkansas at some point?
James and Mary had the following known children:
James and family appeared in Precinct 5, Bell County, Texas, on the 1900 census as follows:
This family was enumerated #180/180 pg 33. Neighbors were Robert Cook, George Balleu, R Jennings, Henry ?lay, James Crawford, John Kirkland and John Winfrey.
Caroline died in Tarrant County, Texas, in 1947. I believe that Mrs. Emory Rudd was probably one of her daugthers. She had lived at the same address with the Rudd's for 2 and a half years. Her death certificate appears as follows:
