William H and Lucetta A Gatewood Pyeatt

William Henry "Billy" Pyeatt was born July 11, 1852, at Cane Hill, Washington County, Arkansas, to John H and Sara A Maxwell Pyeatt and died October 29, 1941, in Amarillo, Potter County, Texas. He married June 25, 1882, in Cleburne, Johnson County, Texas, Lucetta Ann Gatewood who was born September 22, 1858, in Tennessee to Benjamin Dudley Gatewood and Amanda B Buchanan and who died January 8, 1901 near Silverton, Briscoe County, Texas. Both W H and Lucetta Pyeatt are buried in the Silverton Cemetery, Briscoe County, Texas.

The known children of Billy and Lucetta were:

I find William H Pyeatt (indexed as 'Peysatt' on the 1900 census in Precinct 3, Briscoe County, Texas, as follows:

This family was enumerated #133/139 on pg 33. The number of children born and number living agrees with the children above. Neighbors were ?M Reed, Robert Loring, William Eton, and William Rogers. Most of William's family was still in Johnson County, Texas, at this time.

Just a year after this census Lucetta died. Since she died three days after her two-day-old baby girl, it would be a safe assumption that she died as a result of childbirth.
