What State is he from,Many William Wyatt.
Do you have any idea which part of the country he comes from?  There are lots of Wyatts on WikiTree. We might can help.
got an email that mine had an answer, accidently clicked on this question, couldn't get where I clicked on it off.,
William A Wyatt was born in SC, guessing around the Spartanburg/Cowpens area in 1853 or 56. His mother's name is Susan Wyatt according to his marriage certificate to Malinda Arrowood 1890.  There is no father mentioned on the certificate.  Either she was unmarried or he had died. Have hints that Susan's dad's name may have been Peter born abt 1774.


William A Wyatt was born in the Spartanburg/cowpens area. He moved into NC at late teens to early 20's. In the Green Hill, Rutherford Co, NC. He married Malinda "LInda" Arrowood from the Shingle Hollow, Rutherford Co., Nc in April 1890. His Mothers name is Susan, no father is listed on the marriage certificate to Linda, so she was either unmarried or had passed.  Hints that susan's father's name is Peter Wyatt.

Opps! DIdn't notice you had found it.
William was born in SC probably Spartanburg Area, I have found his mother to be named Susan, born around 1815-1820 in SC..  I think Peter is his grandfather instead of his father as listed in some trees. Peter was a clay brick maker in the Cowpens, SC area. They later moved to Green Hill, Rutherford Co, NC by the 1870 census. Still trying to find a husband for Susan, and wife and parents for Peter.

Hi Debbie,

That is my family and I am from Spartanburg.  I don't know of a William A Wyatt that married that person but I can check with my Mom.  As you know, every 4th Wyatt boy seems to be named WIlliam. I descend from William A Wyatt but different wife.

I will check with my one million Wyatt relatives and see if anyone knows of this couple.  The recorded Wyatt info from that area is sketchy.  I don't know where you live but there is really great info on this line at the Madison County, NC library.

William was born either 1853 or 56, in SC, Malinda wasn't born until 1870 and since they married in 1890, he could very well of been married before.  My uncles paint him as a rascal.  One claims he left "Linda" around 1903 and was hung in TN for horse stealing. Can't find anything to back it up.  A family bible has him passing in 1907, cause not listed.  Only known thing for sure is Mother is Susan and the Peter from the 1860 census I think is his grandfather.  Have seen paperwork that a Peter was married to a Galofy or Glathy. b1789 Spartanburg, d Dec 1858.  Trying to find out more on them also.  I live in Rutherford Co., NC
