Our subject's parents may be this couple:
Father:  Thomas William WYATT

but the connection is not proven.

His middle name is alleged to be "Thompson," but I've not found anything to document his middle name.  If I had to guess, I'd say it would more likely be "Thomas."

7.  Mattie WYATT, b. ca. 1848; apparently d. 1850

3a.  Census Index:  U.S. Selected Counties, 1830 (Broderbund CD-315):
1830 Wyatt, William MO Franklin Co. Boeff Twp. p. 140
He's the only William WYATT in Missouri, at least in this index, but he is not our subject (see next source).

3b.  Family Quest Archives:  Missouri Federal Census 1830:  Lincoln, Marion, Chariton, Washington, Jefferson, Franklin, Gasconade, Crawford, Cole, Montgomery, Pike, St. Charles, St. Louis, St. Genevieve, Perry, St. Francois, and Cape Girardeau Counties.  Heritage Quest CD M19-72 (extracted by Diana Gale Matthiesen):
1830 MO Franklin Co. p. 140A William Wyatt 001 010 100 - 221 110
These data indicate that this William was born 1780-90, so he could not be our subject.  Even if this were our subject's father, also named William, and even though the next younger male (b. 1800-1810) could be our William, there is no son in the house under age five, so again, this is not our subject.

4a.  Census Index:  U.S. Selected Counties, 1840 (Broderbund CD-316):
1840 Wiatt, William MO Livingston Co. Jackson Twp. p. 274
The indexer mis-read the township (see next source).

4b.  Family Quest Archives:  Missouri Federal Census 1840:  Lewis, Lincoln, Linn, and Livingston Counties.  Heritage Quest CD M704-225 (extracted by Diana Gale Matthiesen):
1840 MO Livingston Co. Franklin Twp. p. 275A William Wiatt 121 001 - 010 001
These data indicate:
No. & Sex Age Class Therefore Born Individuals Inferred
1 male 4 or under 1835-1840 = Benjamin Franklin (b. 1838)
2 males 5-9 1830-1835 = Thomas Jackson (b. 1835)
= James N.B. (b. 1831)
1 male 10-14 1825-1830 = John (b. 1828)
1 male 30-39 1800-1810 = William (b. 1802/3) 
1 female 5-9 1830-1835 = Mary (b. 1833)
1 female 30-39 1800-1810 = Rachel (b. 1803) 
There is no room here for Catherine, even if she was born in 1829 and not 1823.

5.  Grundy County, MO, 1850 Census (online at the Grundy County MOGenWeb site):  Dist. #35, p. 410, enumerated 15 Aug 1850, 341/342.

Wyatt Rachel 47 F     Ky
Wyatt James N.B. 19 M Farmer   Mo
Wyatt Jackson 15 M Farmer   Mo
Wyatt Franklin 13 M     Mo
Wyatt Boon  8 M     Mo
Catharine did not marry until 1858, so if she was their daughter, she should be here at home.

6.  1860 Census Images (online at Ancestry.com; Image #3 of 16):  Middlebury P.O., Franklin Twp., Grundy Co., MO, p. 461, PN 169, 1353/1196, enumerated 11 Jul 1860, official enumeration date 1 Jun 1860 (extracted by Diana Gale Matthiesen):
Wm Wyatt 57 M   Farmer 2000 1000 Tenn
Rachal 56 F         Ky
Andrew 14 M         Mo
Andrew was not in the household in 1850.  Is he really their son?  Where is Boone?  Are Boone and Andrew the same person?  Boone died in the Civil War, so he was alive in 1860.  Listed five households from son, John Thompson WYATT

What made them think Mrs. W.D. WRIGHT was Jeanette A. "ROUNDSVILLE"?

Memorial #: 9061329 9061325
There is an entry here mistakenly giving William first wife, Rachel E.A. McCRAY, who is William's daughter-in-law, not his wife.  I've written the contributor (31 Dec 2013).

10.  LDS.  Family Search: Internet Genealogy Service: Ancestral File.
The AF has Sophia WYATT as a daughter of William and Rachel.  She is not.  She is the daughter of John WYATT & Mary Ann DISBURY.  I suspect John may be a brother to our subject because John's widow moved to Grundy [now Mercer] Co. after John's death.  (Spickard is in northern Grundy Co., almost on the Mercer Co. line, and kinfolk  lived on both sides of the county line.) Thank you to Diane Schroeder for bringing this error to my attention.
The AF has Catherine WYATT (b. 1829) as a daughter of William & Rachel.  I don't see how she can be.  No daughter of that age shows up in the 1840 or 1850 census, nor does a daughter named Catherine, of any age, show up in 1850.  Catharine E. WYATT married Jason B. ST. CLAIR in Grundy Co., MO, in 1858, so she should have been in her parents' household in both 1840 and 1850.  She is not in William & Rachel's.
