Richard Wyatt left school at 14 to enlist and serve in the Revolutionary war. (This is the Wyatt who burned his family Coat of Arms – see that post.) 

On December 8, 1796 Richard Wyatt married Nancy Ware, daughter of Captain John Ware and Ann Harrison Ware. One of their sons – Richard Ware Wyatt – was born December 22, 1806. He became a colonel of the Virginia militia and was “prominently identified” with the Whig Party.

THIS IS VERY COOL. In April of 1830 Richard Ware Wyatt set out on a four month journey from Virginia to Kentucky, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio and Missouri on horseback.  Check it out.
