Re: James Riley Wyatt of Tennessee
John Wyatt and Sarah Trammell - the fact that Trammell or Trammel is the correct spelling is as follows.
Their daughter Zilpha Wyatt married Dick Flynn, the red fox of civil war fame. Her death certificate, there are two, one of them lists her mothers maiden name as Trammell.
Sarah's son Sampson Trammel Wyatt - descendents of Sampson claim his middle name is Trammel.
In Buncombe county where John and Sarah lived there are Trammel's listed with various misspellings but no Tremble's Trambell etc except as misspellings of Trammel.
Thomas and Zilpha Trammel are the likely parents of Sarah who move from nearby SC where Sarah was born - and they move into Buncombe Co NC across the state line from Greenville SC.
