Herman Piatt I believe was a 1892 graduate of the University of Illinois. He later went on to be an author, Coshocton OH supt. of schools & NYC school principal. (from Kenneth Schmid)
1988 Piatt Family Newsletter
subscriber Stan Palmer of Jonesboro IL reported he was a descendant of Edward
Fowler and Rachel Piatt b 1751. Mr Palmer also reported that a daughter of
Edward and Rachel Piatt Fowler, Mary Fowler, was born c1764 and married c1790
in Ohio Co VA to Hugh Steers. The Steers later moved to Boone Co KY. The
dates here are a little tight on Rachel Piatt.
