Their Children

  1. Francis John “Jonny” Wyatt was born on 14 Mar 1951 and died on 21 May 1954. I was told that Jonny was adopted by his uncle, Jasper Wyatt, but after a lot of research, I now believe that he was the biological son of Jasper and that Jasper and Ruth most likely has a relationship prior to her and John. Johnny died at 3 years old. I was told it was from diabetes, but have since obtained a copy of his death certificate that states the cause was Acute glomeruli nephritis, which from what I understand was a kidney disease.
