'James Piatt' married 'Belle Lloyd' December 2, 1873, in Cooper County, Missouri. Nancy Belle Lloyd was born April 30, 1857 in Missouri and was the daughter of George T and Sarah Ellen Smith Lloyd. Belle's father died in 1862 and her mother married James' father, James Henry Piatt. Belle appeared with her younger sister in the James Henry Piatt family on the 1870 census and was listed as a step-daughter in his obituary.
James and Belle had the following known children:
The birth record for James and Belle's fourth child appears in Cooper County birth records as follows:
They appeared as follows on the 1880 census of Clear Creek, Cooper County, Missouri:
This family was enumerated 9/131/2/4. At 9/131/2/5 (next door) was James' brother, Oliver Piatt, and his wife Mary Ellen. And, at 9/131/2/28 was Belle's sister, Sallie Jane Dix, with her husband, James L Dix, and his brother, Charles Dix, and James' step-brother, George Piatt. James' father and family were enumerated in Pilot Grove Township.
By the 1900 census of Pilot Grove Township, Cooper County, Missouri, James and family appeared as follows:
This family was enumerated 23/55/2/93. I believe whomever answered this census confused the birthplaces of 'Mom' and 'Dad' as in previous census' they are reversed (and borne out by other sources). Since we do not have the 1890 census for the 'in-between' kids. It is possible that there might have been other children not accounted for between 1883-1886 or later.
While there were no other Piatts in Pilot Grove, in nearby Clear Creek Township was their oldest son, Elmer, and his family living near James' brother, Oliver Piatt, and family as follows:
