Wyatt Family Page
There are many variations in the spelling of this surname including Wyatte, Wiat, Wiett, and Wyott. This name is sometimes even mistakenly listed as White or Whyde in some records. Some years ago, James Herschel Wyatt started writing a book about the Wyatts in his lineage, a typewritten draft of which I obtained a copy of in 2010. In that writing, he referred to a book written by Carl Wyatt of Washington DC, which apparently included information that the Wyatts (spelled Guyet) originated in France and from there some moved to England and some to Germany. I have never seen this book myself, but apparently Herschel Wyatt had a copy of it and referred to some of the history of the Wyatt family reported in the book.
I cannot guarantee the accuracy of all of the following information but have done the best I could. Where exact dates are not given, it is to be assumed that the year listed may be "about" or "approximately". I would appreciate being informed of obvious errors and can be contacted by email at email@example.com. The Wyatt page was last updated in June 2016.
Each generation of my Wyatt ancestors is numbered and denoted as such.
Of interest, several of the Wyatt men who lived in Mississippi in the 1860s fought in the Civil War for the Confederacy. This may be an area where more research needs to be done.
The oldest Wyatt related to our line that I have information about is Abraham Wyatt, born about 1740 in England. I recently saw the name of his wife for the first time though I have not documented this myself. Her name was given as Mary Knowlton Purchell, born in about 1739; however, based on the date of birth of the only child I have knowledge of for Abraham, and two possible marriages found on Ancestry for Abraham, I have come to the conclusion that there may have been two wives named Mary, one being Mary Purchell and the other being Mary Knowlton (see below). At this time, this is my theory; if new information comes to light, I will make corrections at that time.
Generation 1 - Abraham Wyatt ("#1") is believed to have been born about 1740 in England.
1763 - On Feb 22, 1763, in St. Thomas, Winchester, England, an Abraham "Waight" married Mary Purchell, and Ancestry.com linked this marriage to our Abraham Wyatt (#1). I do not have definitive proof that these are the parents of our Abraham Wyatt (#2), but include it with this caveat. Previously, everything I had seen gave the parents of our Abraham (#2) as Abraham Wyatt and Mary Knowlton; however, a marriage between Abraham Wyatt and Mary Knowlton took place in 1782 in Massachusetts, and our Abraham (#2) was born in 1764. It seems that the dates make it more likely for our Abraham (#2) to have possibly been the son of Abraham "Waight" and Mary Purchell since their marriage took place in 1763 and he was born in 1764.
*Children believed to have been born to Abraham Wyatt and Mary Purchell:
1764 - Abraham Wyatt ("#2") (*my ancestor), born about 1764. At this time I have no information about any other children born to Abraham #1. (See below under Generation 2 for further details about Abraham Wyatt #2.)
1782 - An Abraham Wyatt was married to a Mary Knowlton on Dec 21, 1782 in Wenham, Essex County, Massachusetts. I do not know if this is the same Abraham Wyatt who is believed to be the father of our Abraham (#2), but I include this information because many records show our Abraham's parents as Abraham Wyatt and Mary Knowlton, and I do not believe this to be accurate, based on the dates involved.
1784 - Abraham Wyatt (#2) married Lavina Massingale (1765-1848) in Northampton County, North Carolina.
*Children born to Abraham Wyatt (#2) and Lavina Massingale Wyatt:
1787 - Susan (1787-1803)
1789 - Daniel (1789-1869)
Daniel and Polly Wyatt had the following children:
1816 - William David Wyatt (1816-1894) - married Isabella ? (born about 1819) with children Martha Wyatt (born about 1841), Mary Wyatt (born about 1842), Samuel H Wyatt (born about 1846), and Joseph Wyatt (born about 1849)
1819 - Cynthia (1819-1900) - first married in 1836 to a Mr Furgerson (about 1815-about 1849) with children Tempe Furgerson (born 1840), James Furgerson (born 1842), and William Harrison Furgerson (1843-1904), then married in 1852 to William P Moody (born about 1823) with children Daniel Moody (1857-1920) and Anna Moody.
1821 - Elijah D (1821-1862)
Elijah and Elizabeth Wyatt had the following children:

1857 - Sarah Wyatt was born about 1857
1860 - Permelia Wyatt was born about 1860
1862 - Josephine Wyatt Parks (1862-1896)
1822 - Hubbard W Wyatt (1821-1876) - I found 29-year-old Hubbard Wyatt in the 1850 Decatur County, Tennessee census living in the household of his brother William David Wyatt and his family. In the 1860 census, Hubbard Wyatt is found in Upshur County, Texas, with 15-year-old Matilda Wyatt and 12-year-old Thomas Wyatt. From that, I assumed Hubbard had been married and widowed and these were his children. In the 1870 census, still in Upshur County, Texas, 50-year-old Hubbard is found with 38-year-old Amanda Wyatt and 15-year-old Thomas Wyatt. I am not sure why the discrepancy of the ages of Thomas. I assume Amanda was his wife, and possibly his second wife, but I am not certain of any of these relationships.
1823 - Permelia T Wyatt (1823-1910) - possibly married to Wilburn Ferguson, but I am not sure.
1825 - Alfred Samuel Wyatt (1825-1889) was married to Susan ? and found in the 1880 census in Hopkins County, Texas.
1827 - Abraham B "Abe" Wyatt (1827-1888)
Abe and Julia Wyatt had the following children:

1857 - Sarah "Sallie" Permelia (1857-1936) married first to Samuel Crafton Hunt (1848-1884) with children Mattie Arelia Hunt Harris (1873-1951), Margaret A Hunt (born 1875), Mary Lena Hunt Page (1878-1946), Lucy Melvonia Hunt Boles (1879-1962), Ben Franklin Hunt (1880-1959), and William Abraham Hunt (1883-1958) - and married next to Andrew Jackson Webb (1840-1916)
1792 - Sarah Wyatt (1793-1870)
1794 - Solomon Wyatt (1794-1860)
1795 - Abraham Wyatt (born about 1795)

1808 - Reuben Warren Wyatt (1808-1884)
1820 - The 1820 census shows Absolom's father and family living in Perry County, Tennessee.
1820 - Absolom Wyatt married Sarah Hensley (or Hadley) (born 1796 in South Carolina), perhaps in Perry County, Tennessee. Note: Many people list Absolom Wyatt's wife as "Sarah Henley, Cherokee", but I believe that is inaccurate. There was a Cherokee woman named Sarah Henley born in 1799 in North Carolina, but she was married to a man named Harlan B Hale and lived her entire life in Randolph County, North Carolina. *(In August 2016, I corresponded with Lyford Hale who is a direct descendant of Harlan B Hale and Sarah Henley Hale (Cherokee). He has an abundance of documentation about that Sarah Henley.) Absolom Wyatt's wife Sarah Hensley (or Hadley) is believed to have been born in South Carolina, married Absolom Wyatt in Perry County, Tennessee, then moved on to Mississippi with the family, first to Marshall County and then to DeSoto County, Mississippi.
1830 - The 1830 census finds Absolom Wyatt and family living in Perry County, Tennessee.
1840 - Absolom Wyatt and family are found in the 1840 census living in Marshall County, Mississippi.
1841 - Absolom Wyatt is listed in the 1841 Mississippi Territorial Census as living in Marshall County, Mississippi.
1850 - The 1850 census shows Absolom Wyatt and family living in DeSoto County, Mississippi.
1858 - Absolom Wyatt is believed to have died in about 1858 in DeSoto County, Mississippi. I have no information on when or where Sarah died and do not know where either Absolom or Sarah Wyatt are buried.
*Children of Absolom Wyatt and Sarah Hensley (or Hadley):
1822 - Lemuel R Wyatt was born in 1822 in Perry County, Tennessee.
1849 - Robert Johnson "RJ" Wyatt was born in DeSoto County, Mississippi in about 1849. He is found in that county in the 1850 census and the 1860 census. In 1870 there was a Robert Wyatt born in Mississippi in about 1849 listed as "farm labor" in Cotton Plant Twp, Woodruff County, Arkansas. I am not 100% certain that this is the same Robert Wyatt, but as more information comes to light, I will update this information. I do not have any further information about Robert Johnson Wyatt.
1850 - John Calvin Wyatt was born in about 1850 in DeSoto County, Mississippi. He was found in that county in the 1850 census and in the 1860 census. I have no other information on John Calvin Wyatt.
1852 - Pernicia (Pernasy?) Wyatt Strickland (1852-1890) - born in about 1852 in DeSoto County, Mississippi, married Berges (Burgess) Strickland (1847-1890) in about 1873 in Arkansas, with children Jacob W (1874-1905), James Jordan (1878-1950), and Cora Strickland Fortner (1880-1900). Pernicia Wyatt Strickland is believed to have died in about 1890 in Arkansas.
1855 - Solomon Wyatt (1855-1870) - Solomon Wyatt was believed to be born in DeSoto County, Mississippi in about 1855. He was listed as "Sol Wyatt" age 5 in the 1860 DeSoto County, Mississippi census in the household of his father Lemuel Wyatt. The "US Federal Census Mortality Schedules, 1850-1885" of 1870 deaths lists Solomon Wyatt, Male, White, born about 1856 in Mississippi, died at age 14 in February 1870. This census was taken in Big Fork, Montgomery County, Arkansas, but Solomon is believed to have died in Monroe County, Arkansas.
1857 - Sarah Elizabeth "Sallie" Wyatt Harvey(1857-1940) - born 6 Oct 1857 in DeSoto County, Mississippi. In November 1872, Sarah and her younger brother Newton were made guardians of their uncle, Robert Matthew Wyatt. She married John Ruben Harvey (1862-1937) on 14 Feb 1883 in St Francis County, Arkansas, with children Daniel J Harvey (born 1887), Perthenia N Harvey (born 1890), Betheney N "Bess" Harvey Munson (1891-1956), and James William Harvey (born 1893). Sarah Wyatt Harvey died at age 82 on 7 March 1940 in Little Rock, Arkansas and is buried there in Martin Cemetery.
1860 - Newton Wyatt (born 1860) - Newton Wyatt was born in about 1860 in DeSoto County, Mississippi. By 1870 both of his parents had died, and he was found in the 1870 census in the home of his older half-sister Kittura Baldwin Henard in Monroe County, Arkansas. In 1872 his uncle Robert Matthew Wyatt was appointed guardian over Newton and his older sister Sarah Wyatt, and in the 1880 census he is found at age 20 in Woodruff County, Arkansas. I have no other information on Newton Wyatt.
1869 - Lemuel R Wyatt died sometime before 1869 in DeSoto County, Mississippi, and his wife Narcissa Johnson Baldwin Wyatt died in December of 1869, also in DeSoto County, Mississippi. I do not know the cause of Lemuel's death while in his 40s, but Narcissa died at age 48 of "dropsy" according to the US Federal Census Mortality Schedule for 1870. "Dropsy" may have been "congestive heart failure."
1870 - Note: In 1870, their two youngest children, Sallie and Newton, were living with their older half-sister Kittura Baldwin Henard (daughter of their mother Narcissa) in Monroe County, Arkansas. In 1872, legal guardianship of Sallie and Newton was granted to their uncle Robert Matthew Wyatt who had moved to White County, Arkansas .
***HERE 1825 - Mary Ann Wyatt Faris was born in May 1825 in Perry County, Tennessee; in about 1846 in Mississippi she married Patrick Henry Faris (born 1825) with one known child: Tennessee ("Tenn") (born 1851). They were found in the 1860 census in DeSoto County, Mississippi. I have no other information on this family at this time.
1826 - Susan Wyatt Sharp was born about 1826 in Perry County, Tennessee; married in DeSoto County, Mississippi on Aug 5, 1849 to Zachariah Sharp (born about 1816 in Alabama); listed together in the 1850 census living in DeSoto County, Mississippi. I currently have no other information on this family.
1828 - Joseph Wyatt was born about 1828 in Perry County, Tennessee; married in DeSoto County, Mississippi to his first-cousin Serena Jane Wyatt (1834-1880) (daughter of Reuben Warren Wyatt), with children Mary E (born about 1854), James A (born about 1856), Sarah Frances (Sallie) (1857-1924) who married Eugene Barry, Rheuben W (born about 1859), Nancy J (born about 1865), Martha Ann ("Mattie") (1868-1943) who married John C Young, and Ada Eugenia (1872-1953) and married Ben Loftis. Serena Jane Wyatt died on April 10, 1880 and is buried at Old DeLeon Cemetery in Commanche County, Texas. Joseph Wyatt died in Fannin County, Texas on June 17, 1884; the place of his burial is unknown to me.
1830 - Robert Matthew Wyatt (*my ancestor) was born in 1830 in Perry County, Tennessee. On July 26, 1853 he married Mary Jane Osborne in DeSoto County, Mississippi and then after her death, on September 10, 1857 he married Martha Jane Haywood. (See below under "Generation 4" for further details about Robert Matthew Wyatt and his family.)
1831 - Elizabeth Wyatt Elam (1831-1880) was born in Perry County, Tennessee; married in DeSoto County, Mississippi on July 26, 1852 to Allen Elam (1812-1879), with children Charles M (1854-1930) and John Henry (born abt 1863). I have no information about any other children in this family, although Allen Elam had been married previously and had several children with his first wife. Elizabeth Wyatt Elam died about 1880 in Mississippi (maybe Tate County). I do not know where she is buried and do not know when or where her husband died or where he is buried.
1833 - Absolom James Wyatt (known as "James") was born about 1833 in Perry County, Tennessee. He is found in the 1850 census in DeSoto County, Mississippi and in the 1880 census in Prairie County, Arkansas, listed as a Widower, living with his brother Henry Yancy Wyatt and his family. I have not found him in the 1860 or 1870 census records, and have no information about his first wife or any children they may have had, but at age 50, on October 21, 1883 he married Sarah C Harrell Atkinson (born abt 1841 in South Carolina) who had first been married to James W Atkinson (1836-1881) with at least six Atkinson children: Dozier W Atkinson (born 1862), Mary Atkinson (born 1865), Susie A Atkinson (born 1869), Willie Atkinson (born 1871), Birtie Atkinson (born 1875), and Charles Elvin Atkinson (1878-1914). Absolom James Wyatt may have died around 1889 in Arkansas, but this is not certain. I do not know when his wife Sarah died or where either of them are buried.
1835 - Solomon Wyatt was born about 1835 in Marshall County, Mississippi; married on July 21, 1856 in DeSoto County, Mississippi to Mary Abigail Sullivan (born 1841 in Desoto County, Mississippi, daughter of Littleton Sullivan and Mary Calvert Sullivan), with children James J (born about 1857), Evaline (born about 1860), and Elizabeth (born about 1867). Last found in 1870 DeSoto County, Mississippi census. I have no further information on Solomon Wyatt or his family.
1836 - William B Wyatt was born about 1836 in Marshall County, Mississippi (?); married on November 29, 1868 in DeSoto County, Mississippi to Nancy Fenton Sullivan (born 1846 in DeSoto County, Mississippi, daughter of Littleton Sullivan and Mary Calvert Sullivan, thus she was a sister of the wife of Solomon Wyatt). He was found in the 1850 census in his dad's household and in the 1870 census with his wife Nancy, both in DeSoto County, Mississippi. I have no further information about William B Wyatt or his family.
1837 - Abraham Wyatt (1837-1884) was born on October 21, 1837 in Marshall County, Mississippi; married in about 1858 to Martha Evaline Wyatt (1842-1912, daughter of Reuben Warren Wyatt and Mary Ellen Wyatt), with children George Washington (1859-1930), John William (1861-1862), Mary Elizabeth ("Eliza") (1863-1912), Charles (born about 1870), Alice (born abt 1873), and Elmer (born abt 1979). Abraham Wyatt and family were last found in the 1880 Calhoun County, Texas census. I have no further information on this family.

Generation 4 - Robert Matthew Wyatt, born about 1830 in Perry County, Tennessee..
1840 - By 1840 his family had moved to Marshall County, Mississippi.
1850 - By 1850 they had moved to DeSoto County, Mississippi.
1853 - On 26 July 1853, in DeSoto County, Mississippi, Robert married Mary Jane Osborne who was born in about 1836 in DeSoto County, Mississippi.
*Children born to Robert Matthew Wyatt and Mary Jane Osborne (first wife):
1854 - Stillborn baby boy (1854). Herschel Wyatt related that Mary Jane Osborne Wyatt may have given birth to a stillborn son in 1854. Unsure if this is true and no name is available to me.
1855 - Twin boys (1855) *see below for details about James Thaddeus Wyatt who was said to be one of the set of twin boys. The name of the other twin is unknown to me. Herschel Wyatt reported that when James Thaddeus Wyatt was born he had a twin brother. He said he was told by Arthur Wyatt, a son of James Thaddeus Wyatt, that when these two boys were toddlers, after having recovered from typhoid fever, their parents went off to the fields to work leaving the boys home alone. The boys got thirsty and went to the water bucket to get a drink but when they found the bucket empty, the unnamed twin drank leftover soapy water from the wash pan, and later died. Herschel said he did not know if the story was true or not, but it had been passed down through the family.
1855 - James Thaddeus Wyatt, born 18 November 1855 in DeSoto County, Mississippi (perhaps the surviving child of the set of twins - see above). In 1870 the family was still living in DeSoto County, Mississippi but by 1872 they had moved to White County, Arkansas. There, on 12 Dec 1875 Thaddeus Wyatt married Amelia Caroline (Caline) Tucker (1854-1923), with the following children born to them: James Monroe (1876-1918), Nora Ella (Louella) (1880-1967), Robert Alcy (1883-1965), and William Arthur (1888-1964).
1857 - Robert Matthew Wyatt's first wife Mary Jane Osborne Wyatt apparently died, but exactly when is not known. If the story of the toddler boys related above is true, she seems to have been living at that time, perhaps around 1857 when the boys would have been 2+ years old. But Herschel Wyatt also reported that he believed she died during childbirth. That may also be true, and perhaps the reported stillborn child was not in 1854 but later; or she may have had a separate stillborn child at a later date. Whatever the case, she is believed to have died at least by early 1857.
1857 - On 10 September 1857, Robert Matthew Wyatt married his second wife, Martha Jane Haywood in DeSoto County, Mississippi. Martha Jane Haywood was born in about 1842 in North Carolina to Tillman Haywood (1809-1873) and Mary Ann Haley (1816-1881).
*Children born to Robert Matthew Wyatt and Martha Jane Haywood Wyatt (second wife):
1859 - John Monroe Wyatt (1859-1913) - born in DeSoto County Mississippi, probably very early in the year; married Rhoda Eldora Chastain (1867-1936) on 10 August 1882 in White County, Arkansas, with children James Robert "JR" (1883-1921), Martha Emaline "Emma" (1887-1938), William Noah "Will" (1890-1937), Minnie Viola (1893-1961), Mary Malvina (1897-1957), Sarah Belle "Belle" (1900-1957), and Vera Irene (1906-1984). John Monroe Wyatt died on 24 Aug 1913 in Collin County, Texas, and is buried at Pleasant Grove Cemetery in Climax, Collin County, Texas.
1859 - Mary Alice Wyatt (1859-1927) - born 5 Dec 1859 in DeSoto County Mississippi; married A.M. (Ambrose Milton) Fears (1849-1925) on 5 Aug 1879 in White County, Arkansas, with children Rosie A (born 1880), Joseph Monroe (1884-1969), Minnie Fears (born 1886), Riley (born 1888), Florence (born 1893), Simon Peter (1896-1970), and Charlie (born 1900). By the 1900 census, Mary Alice Wyatt Fears and her family were living in "Cherokee Nation County, Indian Territory" (i.e. Oklahoma), and by 1910 she was listed as a Widow living in Sequoyah County, Oklahoma. She died on 9 January 1927 in Tahlequah, Cherokee County, Oklahoma and is buried at the Tahlequah Cemetery.
1868 - Tillman Hardy Wyatt (known as "Hardy") (1868-1939) - born 17 Sep 1868 in DeSoto County Mississippi; never married; no children. Found in the following census years: 1870 (DeSoto County, Mississippi), 1880 (White County, Arkansas), 1900 (Coryell County, Texas, living with brother), 1910 (Collin County, Texas), and 1920 (Collin County, Texas). He died on 11 June 1939 at Tarrant County, Texas, and is buried in Dido Cemetery there.
1873 - Everett Justice Wyatt, (*my ancestor) was born 28 Feb. 1873 in White Co. Arkansas. (See below under "Generation 5" for further details.)
1875 - Lemuel Banks Wyatt (1875-1956) - born 2 Aug 1875 in Searcy, White County, Arkansas; married twice, first wife Sarah Malvina West on 24 Aug 1893 in Arkansas, with two children: Joseph Noah (1895-1897) and Bertha Ellen (1898-1967). Sarah Malvina West Wyatt died in Bosque County, Texas, on 1 March 1989, a few weeks following the birth of the baby, Bertha Ellen. On 6 Sept 1899 in Somervell County, Texas, Lemuel Banks Wyatt married his second wife, Cora Susan Trammell (1879-1957) and they had the following children: Grace Ophelia (1900-1972), Sarah Alice ("Alice") (1903-1944), Lemuel B Wyatt Jr (1909-1971), Ernest Gibbs (1912-1990), and John Bunyan (1915-1916). Lemuel Banks Wyatt died on 21 Feb 1956 in Rule, Haskell County, Texas, at the age of 80, and was buried there in Rule Cemetery.
1877 - Louis Dupee Wyatt (1877-1952), born 12 Feb 1877 in Searcy, White County Arkansas; married Martha Geanette ("Mattie") Judge (1879-1941, daughter of Robert Taylor Judge and Veronica Carsonnica Hill) on 9 Oct 1895 in White County, Arkansas. The following children were born to them: John William ("Bill") Wyatt (1900-1960), Mary Elizabeth Wyatt (1903-1929), "Baby Boy Wyatt" (1906-1906), and James Herschel ("Herschel") (1912-1995). I found Louis Dupee Wyatt at age 3 in the 1880 census living with his parents and siblings. The 1890 census records were mostly destroyed by fire, but I found Louis, his wife, and children listed in Searcy, White County Arkansas in census records from 1900, 1910, 1920, 1930, and 1940, with his occupation given as "farmer" each year. His wife, Mattie Judge Wyatt died on 9 Nov 1941, and he died in July 1952 in Searcy, White County, Arkansas. They are buried at Oak Grove Cemetery in Searcy, White County, Arkansas.
1879 - Robert Clyde Wyatt was born on July 31 1879 in Searcy, White County, Arkansas. In the 1900 census, he was listed as 21 years old, single, and a boarder living in the home of a Truelove family in Coryell County, Texas. By the time of the 1910 census, he was listed as married for 8 years and had three children living in the home with him and his wife. Thus, he and Lucy Lodeska (Dollie) Hood must have been married in about 1902. They had 7 children: Claude Newel (1903-1954), Laura Elizabeth (1904-1987), Robert Hardy (1907-1982), Roy Franklin (1910-1957), Mary Jane (1914-1998), Paul Harvey (1916-1981), and Robert Clyde Jr (born 1924). All of the census records from 1900 to 1940 list his occupation as "farmer" of rented land. Robert Clyde Wyatt died on Feb 22, 1958 in Fort Worth, Tarrant County, Texas. He is buried in Southland Memorial Park cemetery in Grand Prairie, Dallas County, Texas, along with his wife Dollie who died on Feb 17, 1964.
1882 - Annie Wells Wyatt was born Aug 15, 1882 in Searcy, White County, Arkansas. According to my files, she was 14 years old when she married Alfred Milton Gabrel on July 15, 1897 in Lonoke County, Arkansas. She had two children by this marriage: Alfred Calvary Gabrel (1898-1979) and Jewel Minnie (1900-1971).
