Valentin Pierrat - AM Rev
Posted by: Ivan V. Pieratt Date: June 28, 2001 at 09:14:00
  of 88

Most of the family genealogy data is based on 1968 work by Amos Dimmit. He started me into this madness when asking about John Pieratt who moved to KS in 1854. It took 20 years to overcome the three brothers coming to America or the Layfette connection, or the Rueben and William name, but Valentin signed the marriage consent for his son James to Sally Shultz as Valentin Pierrat.
He appied to the House of Rep thru Mt. Sterling Rep for a REV pension. Was rejected because he was paid by french at discharge 1 May, 1783 at Wilmington, DE. Joined Lauzun's Legion 13, Jan 1779 as cannonier in Blondeau Company. Check out www.Lauzunslegion.com for history.
Valentin from LaBresse, Lorraine, FR. Son of Valentin, Dominique, Jean-Demenge, Demenge-Nicolas. Ckeck Ancestry.com for families.
All families spelled Pieratt, Peratt in US related. Unknowns are Valentine documentation from 1783 to 1789 and spelling of wife Eace, Aries, etc. I do not believe article is Mt. Sterling newspaper is correct about earlier wife. There was once a bible listing Elizabeth as "loving consort" and names of John, Barbe, and James owned by Viginia Duff of Mt. Sterling.
All for now, Good hunting.
