This is in response to the info from Steven Perkins re. Samuel Wyatt. I
can't respond to who Samuel's parent's were, wish I knew, but can help with
some information. I was not aware of a 1st marriage of Samuel. Rebecca
Bennett was the daughter of John Bennett who died in Greene Co Tn 1821.
Court records in Knox Co Ky show that Samuel appointed his son William
Wyatt of Greene Co Tn power of Attorney to see to his interest in the
estate of John Bennett in Greene Co Tn. Children: 1. Samuel Jr b ca 1776 d
ca 1835 married Christiana McInturf 21 Dec 1797 in Carter Co Tn.
Apparently they divorced and Samuel Sr. had to spend so much money on them
and then raised the children that he left them out of his will. His
children brought suit against their grandfather Samuel's estate in 1835.
2. WILLIAM b ca 1777 married 28 Oct 1798 Greene Co Tn Ann McKeehan. 3.
THOMAS b ca 1778 married 12 Apr 1799 Jefferson Co Tn. Polly Davis 4. SARAH
b ca 1779 married 27 Aug 1796 Greene Co Tn James Coffelt. 5. ELIZABETH b 2
Feb 1782 married Sept 19 1807 Knox Co Ky Isaac Stewart and 2nd Christopher
Horn. 6. MARY POLLY b ? married V Gibson. 7. SUSANNAH b 1786 married
Jacob Coffelt 22 Dec 1804 Greene Co Tn? 8. JAMES b 1789 married 1st Sally
Hibbard 23 Feb 1809 Knox Co Tn and 2nd Phoebe Johnson on June 13 1840
Laurel Co Ky. 9.JOHN b ca 1791 married Mary Stewart 21 Feb 1810 Knox Co
Ky. 10. VINCENT b ca 1794 married Jemima Sullivan 19 Sept 1819 Knox Co
Ky. 11.LUCY b ca 1795 married Castleton Wilson 15 Aug 1815 Knox Co Ky and
2nd John Lynch in 1835. 12. FRANCES b ca 1799 married Thomas Bailey 2 Oct
1814 Knox Co Ky. 13. LYDIA b ca 1803 married John Morris Aug 22 1815 Knox
Co Ky. 14. RHODA b ? married Chapman Horne Dec 24 1816. 15. PATSY
(MARTHA) married ? Hickey 16. REBECCA married a Griffith. I have obtained
this info over the years from 2-3 Wyatt researchers. My ancestor is Edward
K Wyatt born 1814 Sullivan Co Tn, moved to Laurel Co Ky and alledgedly
visited Samuel's descendents so believe there was a connection. I hope
this will help you fill in some blanks. I would be interested in learning
anything new you have. Rev JJ Dickey, minister and historian said that it
took 15 years to settle Samuel's estate in Knox Co Ky. Are you related to
Don C Perkins who lives across the river from Louisville in Ind? He
researches the Wyatts but I haven't talked to him for years.
