Birth: 1790

Compiled by a 3rd great grandson of Wyatt Allgood, Brookhaven, MIssissippi 1984.

Wyatt Allgood born Virginia 1788/89; the son of William H. and Sarah R. Allgood, moved with family to Elbert County, Georgia, soon after the Revolutionary War. He grew to manhood in Elbert County, where he lived as a neighbor of Jacob Kees family. When the Kees family decided to leave Georgia Wyatt came with them, first to Franklin County, Georgia to Franklin County Mississippi around 1810. Both Jacob and Wyatt appeared on the 1811 Voters List of Franklin County, Mississippi, this establishing they were in the area before Mississippi was a state, they qualify for "First Families of Mississippi". Wyatt's first wife was the daughter of Jacob Kees and it is believed she died in childbirth. Jacob Kees was declared guardian of Priscilla Allgood in 1813. In this same year Wyatt married Mary "Polly" Smith, a daughter of another Lincoln County pioneer, Stephen Smith, Sr. For a time after his arrival in Franklin County, Mississippi, Wyatt operated a ferry across McCall's Creek at the point where Old Ft. Stephens Post Road crossed that creek on the way to Natchez. Later Wyatt purchased several sections of land from the U. S. Government and eventually owned large sections of land in Franklin and Lawrence Counties. At the time of his death - 1865, the year the Civil War ended, he was living on a farm a few miles west of Brookhaven, just across the Bogue Chitto River from his neighbor Henry Strong. In his long and no doubt, eventful life, he had experienced the hopes and dreams of wealth on a new frontier, but he also lived long enough to see his those dreams go up in smoke amid the Civil War.
