      EXCERPT from: "History of the Wilders", Rev. Moses F. Wilder (Book is in the Library of Congress)
      [Received 8/8/1996 from: JoAnn Williams, 4706 Park Drive, Morehead City, NC 28557 (E-Mail: joanwil@aol.com)]
      The following is excerpted from a copy of Chapter XX., pp 129, 130, 131, and 132, which was sent to me because of its references to a Thomas Bridgers whose daughter Mary E. Bridgers (b 15 Mar 1831, d 15 Aug 1896) was married to Nathan Myatt (b 5 Oct 1813, d 2 Aug 1859). They were married on 10 Jan 1850.
      Nathan Ira Myatt was the son of Acrill Myatt and Ann (Gilmore) Myatt. His grandparents were Mark Myatt (one of the founders of Raleigh, NC) and Mary (Speight) Myatt. While the "History of the Wilders" only mentions Nathan Ira and Mary Elizabeth as having one child, family history of the Myatts indicates that there were three children from this union:
      > Fannie Ann Myatt, b. 1 Jan 1842, d. 25 Jun 1930
      (m. 12 Feb 1873, Henry Hinton Powell, b. 5 Oct 1844 d. 15 Mar 1911). (Son of John D. and Delia (Hinton) Powell).
      >_(Son)___, Myatt, b 9 May 1857 d. 22 May 1857.
      >Nathan Thomas Myatt b. 1 Nov 1859; died in infancy.
      No doubt, only Fanny (sic) was named since the two boys died in infancy.
      The particular reference in the "History of the Wilders" is taken from an interview sometime around June, 1876 with Dr. Hillary Wilder. It appears on page 130, item 4 and reads as follows:
      "4. Frances Wilder, daughter of Col. Hillary, married Thomas Bridgers. They had one son and two daughters, 1 Thomas, 2 Mary, 3 Ann Bridgers. Mary Bridgers married Nathan Myatt, and had one daughter, Fanny Myatt. When he died, she married (so says Dr. Hillary) a new York drummer, Rufus Dun by name, about the breaking out of the Rebellion,1861 and had four children 1 William, 2 Samual, 3 Molly, and 4 Sadie. Her husband is the sheriff of Wake County...."
      Since Nathan Ira Myatt died in 1859, it certainly is possible that Mary Bridgers Myatt could have remarried around 1861, and that her new husbnand could be sheriff of Wake County around 1876 (though a bit strange that a New Yorker would have such a position (--a carpetbagger?)
