Background information on Louise Wyatt

Louise Wyatt spent a lifetime in Clarksville, TN, interviewing old timers, collecting Bible records and obituaries, and assembling family group sheets, while happily answering questions for the most distant of cousins – in an age before computers and the Internet.  Her material is mostly on Wyatt, Roper, Atkins and the Bazel Smith family, which intertwined with the Atkins.  Louise now lives in Nashville.

Her work on the Wyatt family led in an unusual way to the family of Lewis Atkins.  Lewis was born in 1756 in Prince Edward Co., VA.  In 1780 he became a Rev. War soldier from Anson Co., NC.  He moved his family to Stewart County, TN in 1807.  His daughter Rachel married Charles Roper in Stewart County and they raised a large family.  The Ropers also took in Wyatt twin boys around 1830.  According to family lore, the Wyatts were traveling through Stewart County on a wagon train and the mother was unable to nurse the newborn twins, so they were left with the Ropers.  The Wyatts were supposed to return for the twins, but for some reason they never came back.  These twins left many Wyatt descendants scattered around the area.  Two hundred years of Lewis Atkins’ tree branches lead to numerous Lewis and Howell links, as well as many other family names in the Stewart and Montgomery County, TN environs.
