Signed, sealed and Delivered
in presence of John Mereweather, Elizabeth Thruston, John Thruston, B. Thruston, Charles Thruston

The document following this is a power of attorney given by John and Charles Thruston to their brother Buckner.

Here is a word about the Thruston family.

Buckner Thruston, the father of Charles Mynn, also has his biography on the same page of Lamb's:

was born near Winchester, Va; was the son of the Rev. Charles Mynn and Mary (Buckner) Thruston and a descendant of John Thruston, chamberlain of the city of Bristol, England, and of his son, Edward Thruston, who settled in Gloucester County, Va., in 1666. Buckner's father, the Rev. Charles Mynn Thruston, 1738-1812, was an Episcopal minister and served as captain and later colonel in the Revolutionary War; Rev. Thruston was also a judge and a member of the Va. state Legislature before moving to Louisiana in 1811. Buckner was educated and moved to Frankfort, Ky., where was began the practice of law; he married Jeannette, daughter of Peter January of Lexington, Ky; he declined the U.S. territorial judgeship of Orleans Territory in 1805 after having been elected U.S. senator from Kentucky for the term that expired March 4, 1811. He served from Dec, 2, 1805 to July 1, 1809, before he resigned to become U.S. judge of the District of Columbia. Henry Clay was elected to complete his term in the Senate. Buckner served as judge of the district from 1809-1845. He died in Washington, D.C. on Aug. 30, 1845.

A few other details come from Appleton's Cycolpaedia of American Biography, Vol 6, New York: D. Appleton and Company, 1889:

Regarding the Rev. Charles Mynn Thruston, the grandfather of Brig.-Gen'l Charles Mynn Thruston of Cumberland, it said, "He was educated at William and Mary college, and after prosecuting his theological studies in England was ordained to the ministry of the Episcopal church in Gloucester county. Subsequently he removed to Clarke county, and officiated in a church, near Shenandoah river, that is still standing. At the beginning of the Revolution he raised a company, was commissioned as captain, and badly wounded at Trenton. On his recovery he was appointed colonel, being known as the 'warrior parson.' After the war he was a judge and a member of the legislature, and in 1808 removed to Louisiana."

Appleton's information on Buckner Thruston is essentially the same as that from Lamb's

Biography*  A description of Jacob Wykoff Piatt appeared in the Commercial Gazette in 1885. "Thirty years ago, as a young man I recall... the figure that arises before me as I recall those meetings is that of a rather tall, slim, erect man, high forehead, long grey hair, gracefully falling on either side perfectly regular gestures, handsome mouth, chin and nose, with an alert, keen penetrating eye, a twinkle in it [CI:101:?1:CI]when lit by a sarcasm, altogether an imposing, dignified figure."
Jacob Wykoff Piatt
PIATT, Jacob Wykoff, lawyer, born in Kentucky, 29 March, 1801; died in Cincinnati, Ohio, 29 May, 1857. He attained note at the bar in Cincinnati, and was the originator of the paid fire department, now in general use. He became so unpopular to the bulk of the community in his vigorous and solitary opposition for years to the volunteer system that it was found necessary for the police to guard him to and from the council chamber, where he continually spoke against it. He was at one time mobbed, and burned in effigy before his own door by the volunteer firemen and their supporters. When the Latta steam fire-engine was invented in Cincinnati, a committee was appointed by the city council, with Mr. Piatt as chairman, to devise means for its use. He insisted on placing Miles Greenwood (q. v.), a prominent mechanic and founder, who had long been at the head of the volunteer fire department, in charge of the new machine, for the sake, no doubt, of producing harmony in the then divided state of public opinion. Mr. Greenwood accepted the office, and, through his personal popularity and practical knowledge of mechanics, made the machine a success, thus acquiring the reputation of originating the paid department. But to Mr. Piatt is due the credit of having generated the system by years of advocacy, in the face of violent opposition, as a member of the city council.--. 
LICENSE*26 June 1824 He was licensed on 26 June 1824 at Law, Cincinnati, Hamilton County, OH; The state of Ohio, Hamilton Co. I Daniel Gano, clerk of the Superior Court of the State of Ohio in and for the County of Hamilton, do hereby certify that the aforesaid Jacob W. Piatt, Esquire, has duly qualified and admitted to practice as an attorney and counsellor at law, who personally appeared in open count and took the oath of office as such which appears of record; Original of law license in MVW file 6-98.1 
Employment*1842 He was employed in 1842 at Court of Common Pleas - Clerk, Cincinnati, Hamilton County, OH.5 
CENSUS1850*1 June 1850 He appeared on the CENSUS on 1 June 1850 at Cincinnati, Hamilton County, OH; Three servants born in Ireland lived in the household.6 
Note*1998  In 1998 In 1998 MVW and SBW acquired the bust of Jacob Piatt that had until recently been in the library of "Beechwood". The bust is shown on page 819 of Historical Collections of Ohio, Vol. 1 1896. In 2010 MVW learned that Eugene Lockwood also has the same bust indicating that more than one was made. At the same time she consulted with John Schloder the director of the Museum of Fine Arts and he suggested it could have been commissioned as a memorial particularly as Jacob died at a rather young age. I think this is plausible.
Bust was given to Page Woodrough McDermott in 2015.

Married Name Her married name was Lockwood. 
Note*2006 She She was a good friend of Jane Ashton Blakely Woodrough and probably is the person responsible for giving the bust of Jacob Wycoff Piatt to Jane. Likely she is also the person who gave the "Tribe of Jacob" book to Jane. In addition she consulted on the family with Dr. Richard D. Mudd who wrote the Mudd family history. For sure she is the person responsible for putting MVW in touch with Joseph Kearney who did the wonderful charts entitled "Ye Colonial Kinfolks" in 2006. 
Note20 February 2010 She After much research I believe we are close to knowing about the tea pots. Apparently they belonged to Martha Eugenie Piatt who left them to her grandaughter, Martha Eugenie Piatt Lockwood. When Martha died in 1973, at least one of the tea post was consigned to Christie's for auction. It is that teapot that SBW presented to MVW as a birthday present. There remains a mystery surrounding the identical tea pot that was given to Page Piatt Gerber sometime in the 1980's. It is a mystery in progress.

I think that Martha also ended up with the originals of the pastels and they were disposed with her estate. I have one hope left. Apparently her son is still alive and may know something. I wrote him in Feb. 2010 - fingers crossed. I made contact with Eugene Lockwood. He has the creamer from the tea set, but doesn't know how it was acquired. He also has the original portraits of Jean Baptist De Valcount and his son alexander De Valcourt.

Martha Eugenie DeValcurt Lockwood is the link who kept the heirlooms together. In 2010 MVW and SMW donated the two tea pots to the Museum of fine Arts in St. Petersburg where they are on display. Steve called everyone who might have knowledge of the wherabouts of the sugar as well as the provenance of the tea set, but to no avail. I suspect that the set was given to Martha and Jacob in recognition of his work getting a paid fire department in Cincinnatti. There are other sets by Beggs and Smith that display fire apparatus. on 20 February 2010.

Biography*  According to "Tribe of Jacob" Martha E De Valcourt Piatt was living with her daughter at time of death. However, a search of the census cannot prove this. I believe I found Mary A Carroll in both 1920 and 1930, but she was living alone in 1920 and with a daughter age 67 in 1930.
