Descendants of Jordan and Susannah Wyatt
~3rd generation continued~
Isom R. Wyatt 1856-1913
Isom R. "Ike" Wyatt was the third child and son of Jordan and Charlote Wyatt. He was born about 1856, probably in Burnet County Texas.
Little is known of him at this writing aside from
what can be learned from census records.
He married Nancy C. Cox, Ray on 10 February 1883 in Llano CountyTexas. Nancy was the widow of William Ray. She had three children: John Robert Ray, Bettie Ray and William B. Ray.
And she was a sister to Mary Ann Cox, first wife of Andrew Jackson Wyatt, and half sister to his second wife, Ellen Frances Warren.
Isom and Nancy had six children: Demsey Wyatt, Virgil Wyatt, Minnie Wyatt, Harvey Wyatt, Susan Wyatt and Riley Wyatt.
In the Bell County census 1900, John Robert Ray
and his infant daughter, Anne are living in the home of of Isom
and Nancy. Apparently his wife died as none is listed. He
remarried and had two daughters, the oldest, Nancy Isom Ray was
three years old when her mother died. In a letter to me she said
that she lived with her grandmother most of the time until she
married in 1924.
She wrote that her step-grandfather, Isom Wyatt died when she was about six years old, and remembered little about him; except that he was tall, had dark hair and was "very good to me".
Isom Wyatt died in the spring of 1913 in Aquilla, Hill County Texas, and Nancy died on 15 December 1936.
