I am curious. Do you have any more information about the Georgia connection? I have an unknown male in my family tree from about that time frame. The tree is named "Wyatt-Rains/Honeycutt Family Tree" at ancestry.com:

http://trees.ancestry.com/tree/38634041/family

The father of the unknown male would be a John Wyatt born in North Carolina, and the mother would be his second wife, Mary Honeycutt, probably from NC also (parents unknown). At the time of this birth, the couple is believed to have been residing in Campbell County, Georgia. By 1840, most of the family had moved to Tishomingo County, MS. While the parents and younger children appear to be in Tennessee by 1850, some of the children eventually ended up in Arkansas.

I'd be very much interested in any additional information you can provide, so that I can investigate this possible connection.

Just that they were in Gilmer, Georgia and ended up in Arkansas

Looks like Georgia Wyatt was born in Kentucky around 1861 from the 1880 Census Record for Georgia A. Williams:

Also a G? Wyatt, age 16 (born about 1861) married Jno. Williams, age 22, on 9 DEC 1877 (license 7 DEC 1877) at Lonoke Co, Arkansas:

I'd look at the George W. Wyatt from Kentucky.

You're welcome, parkershores.

Last night I came across an interesting piece to the puzzle, a Union draft registration from Kentucky in 1863 that shows a G. W. Wyatt in Graves County that was born in Georgia and was married:

http://search.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/sse.dll?ti=0&indiv=tr...

The age was incorrectly transcribed to the computer record, but is 27 in the original record.

We find a G. W. Wyatt married to a Sarah in Graves County on the 1860 Census:

http://search.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/sse.dll?db=1860usfedcenan...

I can't find when and where they married. Sarah was apparently a widow, years older than George, who came with children. The Censuses of 1840 and 1850 do not pick up any Wyatt's in Gilmer County Georgia, but maybe they escaped enumeration.

Is the Gilmer County info just a family tradition, or do you have some evidence to back it up. Anything else about wife Sarah that you can add?

Hope this helps.
