Howdy Cousins:

I hope you'll pardon me for the delay in getting back to some of
you. I've been wrestling with an upper respiratory infection the
last week-10 days, and it's only now starting to show signs of
succumbing to medication. If there's anything worse than being at
a brick wall, it's being at a brick wall and SICK! :-(

I also have another Lorenzo Dow WYATT entry (possible connection?):

Lorenzo Dow Wyatt, b. 14 Sep 1829, d. 20 Jun 1892 at Warren County IN

Father: John [Unconnected] Wyatt, b. at Virginia,
d. bef 1870 at Iowa
Mother: Mary Redding, d. 11 Sep 1870

Spouse: Mary Elizabeth Gray, b. 5 Apr 1836, d. 14 Sep 1912

Spouse: ____ Ellis

The name "Lorenzo Dow" doesn't seem to be a "common" WYATT name,
which makes me wonder about a possible connection, either through
an uncle or grandfather (?) relationship. (This may be a reach, but
the name is unique to me.)

I also find the following, which has had me puzzled for a while.
Do you happen to find this information re the WYATT/PACK family
in your fourth generation:

> sp-Rachel BURNSIDE-5906 (-1827)
> 3-- Sarah WYATT-5908
> sp-Samuel PACK-5911

Samuel Pack, b. 22 Aug 1779 at New River, Monroe County VA,
d. 1850 at Coopers Creek, Raleigh County VA
Father: Samuel Pack, b. 1755, d. 1833
Mother: Mary Farley, b. ca 1757, d. ca 1826

Spouse: Sarah Wyatt, b. ca 1782
Father: Thomas [Unconnected] Wyatt, b. ca 1762

Married 19 Apr 1802 at Monroe County VA.

Known Children:

1 William Pack, b. ca 1803, m. Elizabeth Paoage
2 Andrew Pack, b. ca 1804, m. Eliza Jarrell
3 Augustus Pack, b. ca 1806, m. Margaret McDonald
4 Rachel Pack, b. ca 1807, m. Henry Honaker

I think we may be looking at a winner with this entry. If so, this
would solve one of the "Unknown" Thomas W*s I have. The bca for
father Thomas WYATT _could_ be incorrect re the PACK side, from
which this info came based on a query I zapped out sometime last

Would this be the same James WYATT (b VA) who m. Phoebe Young JOHNSON?
And if so, is there a connection to be found between Edward Kayman
WYATT, b. 18 Aug 1814 at Bluntville, Sullivan County TN, d. 28 Aug
1886 at Laurel County KY (m 2x Laurel Co KY) and Samuel?

[Hmmm...proofpass: as I'm going through the backlog, I see that Carol
has already touched on this one. Any luck, Carol or Vonnie?]

Either one of these Macajah WYATTs look familiar with that above?

Macajah Wyatt, b. 1731 at Stafford County VA, d. 1774
Father: William Edward Wyatt (1707-1774)
Mother: Lettice Nichols

Macajah Nichols Wyatt, b. 7 Mar 1770
Father: William Edward Wyatt (1742-1815; s/o WYATT/NICHOLS above)
Mother: Frances Newton

[Proofpass again: I comment on this below as prob. not the same
individual(s), but I left it in as it may be helpful to someone.]

Is this the same Nicholas WYATT line? I know you've mentioned you've
been searching in MD records (have to dig back through the "email
buildup" to get the specs)...perhaps this is helpful:

Nicholas Wyatt, b. 1620-22 at Virginia, d. ca 22 Jun 1673 at
Anne Arundel County MD

[Founders of Anne Arundel and Howard Counties, MD. p 48, 57;

Thomas Bland

Married 1653 at Anne Arundel County MD.

Known Children:

1 Samuel Wyatt, b. 1654 at Anne Arundel County MD, d. 1673

2 Sarah Wyatt, b. 1657 at Middle Neck Hundred, Anne Arundel
County MD, m. Edward Dorsey, 1675 at Anne Arundel County
MD, d. ca 1696 at Middle Neck Hundred, Anne Arundel County MD

But I think you already have this info.

Ah, yes, I'm a little familiar with Marge's WYATTs, but much closer
to the present. I did a search for an obit for her (I believe)
grandfather, William WYATT, who died in Kansas City MO c1906 (pulling
from memory here...that was 2 yrs + ago). Marge and I also have
similar huntings in the WHALEY family, from where I know her.

Checking the database: Jordon WYATT comes up naught; John WYATT gives
me upwards of 100 entries (whew), but Margaret WYATT gives me a
link! Knowing Bath Co VA helps, especially as I'm reviewing migratory

Margaret Wyatt, b. 1774, d. 1831

Hmmm...I think we may have another string tied here:

Edward [Unconnected] Wyatt, b. 1770

[of Greenbrier/Kanawha Co VA]

Spouse: Ann Robinson

Married. [assumed bef c1795]

Known Children:

1 Edward Wyatt, m. Mary Tackett, 1813 at Kanawha County VA

...and cross-referencing that with:

Edward Wyatt, b. 1747, d. 1786
Father: Thomas T [Unconnected] Wyatt, b. at Virginia, d. 1772
at Loudoun County VA

Spouse: Ann Robinson (2)

Married. [assumed bef 1774]

Known Children:

1 Ann Wyatt (2), m. Robert Elliott
2 Martha Wyatt (8), m. Thomas Kincaid
3 Sarah Wyatt (22), m. John Wiley
4 Margaret Wyatt (7), b. 1774, m. James Kincaid, d. 1831
5 John Wyatt (24), b. 1783
6 Thomas Wyatt (17), b. 1783, m. Sarah Clark (2)
7 Edward Wyatt (6), b. 1787, m. Mary Tackett (2), d. 1862

...and I think I have a merge about to happen. ;-)

Ok, that rules out those Micajah W*s above.

It could be worse...you could be looking for William WYATT in the
mid-1700s. ;-)

Do you have any collateral information which might pin her to a
family group? Spouse? Children? Possible location in VA or KY?

[Checking the backlogs, I see another email. Will check on what was
posted there and see if I find anything helpful.]
