Is there a tree for Dempsey Wyatt of Nash Co. NC about 1800?

My surname is Sullivan. I match 37 of 37 with a Wyatt on Family Tree DNA who has made his info private. I can't determine the ancestors of my gggf Russell Sullivan 1790-1849 so I must presume there was an NPE about 1790. Dempsey Wyatt is in NC at the time and Russell named his first child after marriage Dempsey. That may be a clue. He had 2 children with the same woman before marriage. Dempsey doesn't appear to have a wife before 1798 as noted on Ancestry.

I will appreciate any help or clues. Thank you.

Dempsey Wyatt is shown in the first US census 1790 in Halifax District Nash County, NC. With 2 males older than 16, 2 males under 16, and 6 females. I am doing Wyatt research in both north and south carolina, at that time borders of states and countys were common. We might be related! Good luck.

mother: Sarah Seay (1740 - ?)
 
---> John Sullivan Jr
father: Morris Sullivan (1698 - 1739)

----> Morris Sullivan
father: John Thomas O'Sullivan (1637 - 15 Jul 1698)
mother: Sarah Gore (25 Mar 1653 - 1679)
 
-----> John Thomas O'Sullivan

gets a bit fuzzy around this point but traces to Lord Donal MacCarthy, Lord of Carberry, Ireland.
 
As for offspring of Dempsey Sullivan, I have found no leads as of yet.

The problem is that what you have is wrong. It's the line that I came up with years ago until DNA tests proved it impossible. Unfortunately a number of people copied the info.
