According to a cousin, Andrew's father name was John Benton Pyeatt. I am very much interested in finding out more information about the Pyeatt history. I suspect that my family line might have arrived in the United States with the Huguenots' from France. Based on some of the information I have Andrew Pyeatt had a least 12 children. Oh, my father's name was Eugene Larry Pyeatt. Hugh Pyeatt married Madie Virginia Whitely Pyeatt from Texas. The only bother that I can remember of Hugh was, Earl who died when I was very small. Hugh Pyeatt died April 1977 in Klamath Falls Oregon. Andrew Pyeatt supposedly died from a horse accident in Texas.

My husband is descended from an Elizabeth Pyatt who married a David Calvin Warren. Her parents were David Pyatt and Elizabeth Sackett. Her brother and sister lived in Canadian Co, Okla. Her brother's name was Samuel Pyatt and her sister was Malinda Pyatt Brown. I know David was in MO in Sullivan Co in 1870 and that is the last I have located them. David Calvin Warren made the run into Okla. and obtained a homestead in Harper Co. north of Woodward, OK. I seem to be at a standstill finding Davids line of Pyatts. I have all of Elinor Whites Pyatt family newsletter and still don't have his line. I keep leaning towards little known John and Rebecca Piatt. But, no proof. Are you connected with the Oklahoma Pyatts from Canadian Co. where their son Samuel lived? If so do you have any connections to Samuel?? I live in Fla. and it is hard to travel back to MO. often enough to research properly. Thank you. Evelyn"

Date: Tue, 4 Jan 2000 From: Alley Blackford To: Subject: Marriages/Augusta Co VA "Does anyone know who Wm Peatt is? His parents? Siblings? Does anyone have info on Isabella Peatt? A direct descendant of John McWms has a Bible that says her name is Merritt, not Peatt. The Bible is copyrighted AFTER the marriage so the info was added much later than the wedding date. Library of VA archives has the name Peatt and the Rockingham Courthouse in VA also has Peatt. I have not seen the actual marriage record, just the recorded info. This John McWms 2 who married Isabella Peatt is the son of John McWms 1, who is the father of Rachael McWms who married Benjamin Piatt (Feb 8, 1827, Augusta Co). If both John and Rachael married Peatt/Piatt, then there is a great possibility that Isabella and Benjamin were siblings. (I've had that happen in more than one family.) Then we have Catherine Peyatt who married Elijah Turner. Anyone know who she is?

In the meantime I have to tell you that the Peyatt name really jumped out at me when I was helping my girlfriend with her Graves family. Her gt grandfather was Leonard B. Graves who lived in Jefferson Co., MO and died in St. Francois. His second marriage was to a Peyatt woman. She had been widowed. She and her husband had adopted a son - maybe 1870s. The husband died, then she married Leonard Graves. We visited the area last autumn and found his gravestone had been vandalized. Now we do not know his death date and may never. So on the outside chance, you might know of this family, I'm going to try to put you two together. I can't recall the Pyeatt names as none of it was related to me.

Date: Tue, 1 Aug 2000 From: jangrp To: Subject: Introdction "My name is Garrett Driscoll. I reside in Florida. My Piatt line stems from my GGrandmother, Emma Piatt Simmons Croxton. Emma was the Mother of my GFather, Charles Simmons. She was the daughter of William Piatt and Mary Gay. She was born in Rock Island County, Ill. Crossed the Oregon Trail, presumabley with her Mother and Father. She may have left Illinois earlier after being wed. The trail is muddy at best. The whole family settled in Grants Pass, Oregon, now Josephine County. The father of Charles Simmons is unknown at this juncture. I have one indication that he was born in Kansas in 1881 and another that it was around 1875/6. Since the former is LDS listing for the Croxton Family and the latter is the Oregon Census, 1880, which listed him and Emma living with William in Grants Pass and his age is listed as 5 years. I have not yet found anything on marriages or the dates that Emma and/or the rest of the family left Illinois for Oregon. Anything that anyone has on this line will be greatly appreciated. Side notes: I am originally from Darke County, Ohio. For reasons having nothing to do with the Piatt line, I never knew that I had Emma in my heritage until around 1990, about a year before my mother, Emma's Gdaughter, passed away. Since that time, I have learned there are many Piatts in Darke County. I would have loved to known that when I was growing up. I left there in 1951. Equally interesting, in about 1950, I took my Mother to the Castles in Ohio and she did not mention the heritage. The silence, I have learned, stemmed from a divorce between Charles and my maternal GM. Sad, isn't it? I look forward to learning more about this line and "meeting" other members of the family. I apologize for the long intro. G. Driscoll"

When Christina died there was a baby, 1 month old, on the census record. It was believed that Christina had died as a result of childbirth, but as the children went different directions upon the death of Jacob, there is no further evidence of an Etta C. existing. My question, however, is whether it is known if this baby was really Christina's or the daughter Artimisha Ellen's. Artimisha had not moved from Ohio to Missouri with the rest of the family. She had married at 16 a man by the last name of Brewer. However, Artimisha shows up on the 1880 Missouri census [Boone Co], but no husband, and a baby is suddenly there as well. Artimisha left Missouri when her father died and ended up marrying a man by the name of Scott Levi.

My grandmother was born at Alturas 16 Apr 1880 and died 5 Apr 1903 when my dad was three weeks old. He died when I was 17, so I have had no contact with any of the older relatives, and only a couple of my cousins on that side. With a little luck, maybe we can get something going here.....

Date: Wed, 30 Aug 2000 From: Charles Piatt Subject: Benjamin Piatt/Isabell Palmer/Monroe Co OH "All we have on these people is that they were married in Monroe Co OH on 7 April 1874 by Rev Isaac Williams. (Marriage Book 2:18) There is speculation that this Benjamin was the son of William Piatt and his first wife Ella "Precious" Keen. Some give Ella's name as Brown. Ella died in the mid 1860s leaving William with several small children who must have been taken in by relatives, maybe on both sides of the family. The children have been difficult to track. There is also a death record for a Benjamin F Piatt on 2 Jan 1879 at age 24 years. This would make this young man born about 1855. The family group sheet of William and Ella "Precious" lists a Benjamin as having been born about 1852 with no further information. If you find that this is the correct Benjamin and that he was the son of William and Precious, we have lots and lots of further information. Laverne Ingram Piatt Ontario, OH

I have no idea who the Tatums were. Also, don't know of any offspring from Nathan and Martha Ewing. The Tatum marriage must have taken place in PA, possibly NC.

OK, you Pyeatte people out there, David has brought to light some wonderful inconsistancies between his database and mine and I would like to know if/who has documentation to substantiate their information (because mine was passed down from my uncle with very little if no documentation). David has John Pyeatt (26JUN1735 - 1780), married to Martha Jane Blair (c. 1735 Ireland) as the first son of Jacob and Jane Young Pyeatt.

David shows Andrew Finley Pyeatt (8MAR1801 - bef.23APR1837) married to "Patsy" Martha Carnahan (c.1792). I have Martha "Patsy" Carnahan married to Andrew F. Pyeatt also, but with a first husband of John P. Pyeatt (Jan1792 - 28JAN1823) and with a third husband (after Andrew) of Jeff Cabe with whom she had two children, Margaret B. Cabe and Jane B. Cabe.

I couldn't tell. Then I began wondering if the phrase had been altered over the years of retelling. And with the origin of the immigrant in France anyway it could added to confusion. Anyway, it is the line of the Five Revolutionary brothers which told the "John of France" story the more and I began trying to locate the papers of the late Nannie Louise Lodge who wrote "The Tribe of Jacob," which also mentions "John of France." I thought if I could find her correspondence, some light could be shed on the origins of the story. But I've had no luck finding her papers as yet. Any advice on where they might be would be appreciated. Lodge died in Covington KY in 1936 having no direct heirs."
Answer - From: "C. D. Lodge" Subject: Re: [PIATT] Nannie Louise Lodge "For Laverne Piatt et al: Nannie Louise Lodge is my grandfather's sister. I have heard for some time about the book she wrote ('The Tribe of Jacob') but have never seen a copy. Also, I have heard of a periodical that she wrote (edited?/contributed to?) but do not know the name. I would appreciate it if you could provide any help in locating a copy of this book. Family stories tell that when Aunt Louise died (at the 'Old Ladies Home', in Covington KY), she left a 'trunkfull' of material of unknown but presumably family/genealogical provenance. By the time my grandfather found out about her death, the material had been 'thrown out'. My great grandfather (Charles Elwood Lodge) died in 1906 in Springfield, MO. when my grandfather was about fourteen. There was little contact with Aunt Louise or thier older brother (Jacob Strader Lodge) after that time, although she apparantly came to Missouri for a visit sometime in the 30s. Much of this info comes from my gradmother about thirty years ago - my grandfather was always very reticent about discussing this. btw, I have Aunt Louise's date of death as 12 Mar 1939. -david lodge"

My wife is a descendant of Lucinda Jane Smith (1822-1878) that married Willis Henry Bittick (1817-1883). I have been trying to track down old family photos. Unfortunately, I have been unable to find Lucinda and Willis. I was wondering if you had access to photos of any of the Smiths or their Pyeatt spouses (ie. Frederick and Permilia Pyeatt, Hiram and Mary Smith, or William and Angelika Pyeatt)? I am more than willing to pay your expenses for having these photos copied. Which Pyeatt do you descend from?

I don't know a great deal about my family history, but I'll offer to you the little bit I do know in the hope that you may be able to connect some more dots! My grandfather was John Simpson Pyatt and he married Amelia Kirsh and lived in Springfield, IL. They had only one son, John Sterling Pyatt who was born on June 20, 1928. In 1940, they moved to Jacksonville Beach, FL where John Sterling Pyatt grew up and married Evelyn Gardner. They had two children begining with Amelia Faye Pyatt and ending with me, John Marcus Pyatt. I believe that my grandfather, John Simpson Pyatt had at least one brother named Jullian Pyatt who resided somewhere in Missouri and was married to wife Dee. They had at least one son Robert Pyatt who married to wife Lavon. Let me know if any of this connects with any other information you have. Hope this helps. Best Regard, Marc Pyatt"

My dad, Vern, passed in 1986, I was 9. From what I gather, my mother & my aunts didn't get along well & we have had no contact since. For the last 6 months I tried subtly to locate them and have been unsuccessful. As I get older, I miss not knowing them & having them in my life. We are all getting older & I want to reconnect before it's too late. This may sound a little strange, but I really miss them not being in my life! I just located a copy of "History of the Pyeatt Family" in my mothers filing cabinet. It was put together in 1969 but it dates back to the year 1725!! In this wonderful creation I found some exact name matches to the ones you were looking for. I'm not sure if you have concluded your search, but if you would like to know more about it, I'd be happy to share with you. I appreciate you taking the time to read this! I was wondering if the names below ring a bell to you or if you may have ran across them in any of your searches. If you have any tips for me on ways to locate them soon, I'd greatly appreciate it! I have a lot more info. on my family so if I didn't include something, please let me know. I'm sure you are really busy & I'm 100% willing and ready to search for my aunts. I just feel like I've been going in circles so I decided to ask your opinion. Seems like you have a great knowledge of the Pyeatt family history & of how to do searches. If you do have any info that could help me, I'd be forever grateful! My aunts info. with greater detail are listed below. 1) Wanda Carlene Pyeatt D.O.B. is 8/19/1936---last known as Wanda York, married David Burke York, Sr. on 4/2/1952: 2)Athena Lorene Pyeatt (goes by LORENE) D.O.B. is 7/19/1938 ;was married to Donald Edward Long on 4/8/1960..but divorced 7/31/1968: 3) Millie Darlene Pyeatt (goes by Darlene); D.O.B. is 9/7/1940- Married Jay Manning Fuller 7/23/1964.

He was born about 1850-1855 in PA according to the Pittsburgh Federal Census of 1880. This information conflicts with a location of Belmont Co., OH mentioned in 'All Sorts of Pittsburghers.' James Piatt was the owner of Piatt's Restaurant & Saloon at 248 Fifth Ave. in Pittsburgh. One of his wives was Elizabeth McLaughlin. They had a son named John Newell Piatt (graduate of Yale Law School) who became a prominent Pittsburgh attorney and, like his father, was a colorful charcter in Pittsburgh politics.

Tennant's wife Christine Hacker, who was from Arkansas Post.......her grandfather or father [haven't got the files out] worked for the Choteaus, who you probably know were the suppliers for Lewis and Clark.I am doing a very large research project for a book, involving biographical research into 12 Coast Salish Indian women and 25 husbands. The more I see, the less I believe in coincidence when names are nearby. I also help people do genealogy at the State Archives here. Same experience. Somewhere I believe there is a link between those Washington county Pyeatts from North Carolina [I think?] and your bunch. And probably between the Tennant daughter's McClure and yours. People met people so often at that time by personal reference... one person sending someone on to another.... on even the slightest acquaintance level. It's just too weird that these names are crossing like this. If you ever see any mention of a Tennant in Texas about 1855 and earlier, please let me know. The eldest Tennant boy.... James Henry Tennant [named after another minister who had married into the family of Christine Hacker Tennant] died in TX in 1855. I have no idea where, and neither does the family. No idea why he went there, when he was the eldest of 13... the one who would be expected to also become a minister, or at the least run the farm. One of the Tennant-Pyeatt couples went to TX and settled there but after the War, I think. Candace"
