52 Ancestors: #2 William Pyatt

William Pyatt was my 3rd great-grandfather on my Dad’s side. He was born about 1790 in Virginia. He migrated to Ohio around 1812 where he met and married Catherine Glass. William and Catherine Pyatt are found on the 1820 census of Clark County, Ohio along with their eldest son, Benjamin and their two daughters Mary and Sarah. William is listed on this census as a Farmer. They later lived in Indiana and Tennessee (where Catherine died prior to 1841). William and Catherine had 7 children; Benjamin b: 1813,  Mary b: 1815, Sarah b: 1817,  John H. b:1822, Elijah b: 1823, James Glass b: 1824 and Elizabeth b: 1831.

Around 1841 William along with most of his children, including James Glass Pyatt and James’ young wife, Rachel and 2 small children, moved to Crawford County, Missouri. William married a widow with children, Elizabeth Bennett on January 3, 1850 in Crawford County. William and Elizabeth had no children of their own. William Pyatt is on the 1850 census where he is listed as a basket maker who cannot read nor write. He died shortly thereafter in Crawford County, Missouri.
