William and Elizabeth B Hay Disney Pyatt

William Pyatt was born October 4, 1825, in Ohio to Jacob and Elizabeth Stewart Pyatt and died before 1880.

He was almost 27 years old when he married on August 3, 1851, in Perry County, Illinois, Elizabeth B Hay Disney who was the widow of Dennis Disney born c1828 in Virginia. The marriage license was for 'William Pyatt' and 'Mrs. Elizabeth B Disney' (vol 2 pg 28). Elizabeth Hay married Dennis Disney in 1847 in Hancock County, Illinois.

Elizabeth appeared as follows with her first husband on the 1850 census of Shocokon, Henderson County, Illinois:

Apparently, Elizabeth had no children with Dennis. William was still living with his parents in Perry County, Illinois, at this time. By the 1860 census DuQuoin P O (T6SR1W) of Perry County, Illinois, the family appeared as follows:

This couple was enumerated #1163/1163 on 7th July 1860 on page 162 (ancestry image 164/246). Also living in Perry County was William's widowed mother and most of his siblings.

I searched a variety of ways on the 1870 census database at with no success.

William had died by the 1880 census when I found the widowed Elizabeth living in DeQuoin, Perry County, Illinois:
