Marriage-1:  ca. early 1840s

Death (40y 8m 26d):  29 Nov 1863, Sullivan Co., MO
Disposition:  buried Lindley Cemetery, Sullivan Co., MO
Father apparently notWilliam T. WYATT
Mother apparently notRachel THOMPSON

The LDS Ancestral File has Catharine's parents as William & Rachel (THOMPSON) WYATT.  It has Catharine's birthyear as 1829, while the birthyear calculated from her tombstone is 1823.  But no daughter of either age shows up in the household of William & Rachel (THOMPSON) WYATT in the 1840 census, and no daughter of that name or age shows up with them in the 1850 census.  Plus, William & Rachel weren't married until 1825, so if the 1823 birthyear is correct, it becomes even less possible that she's their daughter.

Marriage-4:  bef. 3 Jun 1880
Wife-4:  Malinda __?__
Birth:  ca. 6 Nov 1823

Malinda was almost certainly a widow when she married Jason.

1a.  D.L. Murray & N.R. Murray, compilers.  1996. Marriage Index: AR, MO, MS, TX, 1766-1981.  Marriage data from the "Hunting for Bears" collection (Broderbund CD-5):
ST CLAIR, Jason B WILLS, Frances 22 Jun 1853 Andrew Co., MO

1b.  Jordan Dodd, ed.  1998.  Marriage Index:  Missouri, 1851-1900.  Broderbund CD-234):
Stclair, Jason Wyatt, Catherine 28 Mar 1858 Grundy Co.

2.  Census Index:  U.S. Selected Counties, 1840 (Broderbund CD-316):  not found.

3a.  Census Index:  U.S. Selected Counties, 1850 (Broderbund CD-317):
1850 St Clair, J. MO Taney Co. Prairie Twp. p. 377
1850 Steiucler, J. MO St. Louis Co. St Louis 1st Ward p. 78
These are the only possibilities on the CD, and I really looked, both in MO and KY.

3b.  1850 Federal Census of Taney County, MO (online in the Census Archives of USGenWeb):  Prairie Twp., Taney Co., MO, p. 377A, 509/509, enumerated 7 Oct 1850 (extracted by Barbara Logan):
St. CLAIR J. 31 M Farmer   Kentucky
St. CLAIR E. 27 F     N Carolina
St. CLAIR W.F.  3 M     Missouri
St. CLAIR S.P.  1 F     Missouri
Despite being the right age and being born in the right state, this would appear not to be our subject.  His wife should be "F.," age 32, and there should be a son, John, age 4.  Also, given where he ended up, Taney Co. (in southernmost Missouri, on the state line with Arkansas) is an unlikely location, while St. Louis is a jumping off point to the Missouri River and from there to northern counties, such as Sullivan.

3c.  1850 Census of Sullivan Co., MO (online at USGenWeb):  not found, nor any other ST. CLAIR.

4.  Census Index:  U.S. Selected Counties, 1860 (Broderbund CD-318):  no MO records on CD.

Obviously, Jason has been misread as James (both names have the same number of "bumps" after the "J").  He is the only ST. CLAIR in the county.

Her children had to have been by an earlier husband as they are grown and gone.

9.  Mrs. B.F. Hoover, Mrs. O.L. Livingston, Mrs. Delbert Hesler, & Cindy __?__.  1965.  Lindley Cemetery, Sullivan County, MO (online at the Grundy County MOGenWeb site; transcribed from the written record by Larry Flesher; n.b., they had the records in alphabetical order, I changed them to chronological order):
Located on the edge of Sullivan County; S15.T61N.R22W; just across border of Grundy County, Marion Township.  It is near Old Lindley, a pioneer settlement, which flourished in the early years of the county, then almost disappeared when railroads and highways missed it...
