I tried answering your letter direct but it would not go through. Message was that my letter was rejected by the server probably due to a spam setting or something.
I appreciate your sending the information. Quite a lot that i don't have. Some interesting things to look into.
I did see some errors from misinformation that has gotten out on the internet. It is speculation that has not been proven by any WYATT researcher.Not from lack of trying.
I will point these errors out to you.If you live in the area then you likely have access to a lot more information. and if you have any information to bear it out a lot of us would be very grateful.
There is no proof anywhere that NATHAN WYATT is Jordan's father. Most of us think he is, but by a first wife not the SMITH he married in 1776. Because i personally believe that Jordan was born in or before 1775 as he signed a marriage bond for a WYATT/PARKS marriage in 1793. I could be wrong, but I think he would have to be at least 18 years old to qualify for that.
No proof that THOMAS WELCH is Susanah's father and no record of where or when she was born. I expect 1777 is about right though.
There is no proof that children: Emily, Elizabeth or Howard WYATT are children of Jordan. Emily WYATT that married KINCADE is especially questionable as i have for years been in contact with WYATT/KINCADE researchers who have tried forever to make a connection there. Named in Jordan's will (August 1849) are these six children:Markus, Dempsey, William, Nancy, Lenora, and Jordan. Though the early census indicates that they likely had more than the six, it is generally assumed that others died young since nothing we have found can connect any other children to them.
On my own line:Charlotte PETTY was born in Butler County KY and came to Texas with her family about 1848 and it is a coincidence that she is also from KY. There is no indication that she and Jordan II (in TX by 1846) met before coming to Texas. She was the d/o Theophalus and Charlotte (Sorrells) PETTY.
Where did you find all that information on William? I have often wondered if the William that married Nancy HOWARD was the same William that married Mary LACKEY. And all those other marrages are news to me.
I know he married Nancy HOWARD on 6 Sept.1847 and Nancy is with him in the 1860 census with Melinda 9 months old, and in 1870 census age 10 years old. If she was the d/o a slave then this would make Nancy an awful understanding lady.
