The children of Bud and Mary:

Myrtle Pyatt sent me pages from a manuscript that looks like it might have come from a county genealogical society. Across the top is hand-written 'Families of Boss Cemetery, Dent County, MO'. Here are extracts related to this family starting pg 76:
John Pyatt and his wife, Mary Tinker Pyatt, are the forerunners of the Pyatt Family of east Dent County. John Pyatt was born 3-5-1844 in Crawford County, Missouri. His father, Benjamin Pyatt was one of the early settlers of Crawford County. The Pyatt Hollow near Cherryville was named for this family. He was reared in Crawford County and on 10-31-1870, he was married to Mary Tinker, member of a pioneer family. To this union ten children were born, W. H. (Bud), Tim, Ed, Newton, Thomas who married Bessie Hogan of Howes Mill; Daniel Franklin who married Sally Strictlin of Iron County and died 3-20-1944, buried Pump Cemetery near Bixby; Luvada (Mrs. William Farmer) moved to Montana; Lora Nelson Keller Clapp moved to Montana; Martha Causey died in Sapulpa, Oklahoma; and one daughter died in infancy and is buried at Lower Indian Cemetery in Washington County. John Pyatt was a soldier in the Civil War, Company G. 48 Missouri Infantry.

I received this email and cannot quite figure out where it fits in as the Thomas Marion Pyatt above does not have a brother Daniel Franklin Pyatt. There is a Daniel Franklin Pyatt who was married to Sally Strickland who was the son of John and Mary Tinker Pyatt. That Daniel had a brother whom I have listed as Thomas Jefferson Pyatt, not Thomas Marion Pyatt:
Date: Tue, 26 Jan 1999 From: Dennis Wayne Pyatt "I came across your web page and notice some of the people you have on it so I thought I would write to tell you who they are.

This man is my cousin:

His father, Daniel Franklin Pyatt, and my grandfather, Thomas Marion Pyatt, were brothers.

This man is Bucky's brother:

This man is my brother: I am Dennis Wayne Pyatt. My parents live in Festus. I am tracing my family tree. We are the PYATT's from Boss, MO. I would be happy to share any info with you but I think my family is not the same as yours.
