I will share the information that I have but must tell you that I have not confirmed any of this. Newspaper article located at the Mt. Sterling Library reads as follows:

"William Valentine Pieratt, a native of France, came with General Lafayette to help the American colonists win independence. After the war he lived for a while in Pennsylvania and Maryland, later moving to what was then the wilderness of Kentucky, settling in Montgomery (now Bath) County.

William Valentine Pieratt was twice married. By his first wife (whose maiden name is not known) he had the following named children: 1. John, born 3 Dec 1790, married Anna Maxey; 2. Barbara, born 10 Jan 1793; 3. James, born 6 April 1795, married Sally Shultz. William Valentine Pieratt married secondly Elizabeth Aery and had issue: 4. George, 5. Aery, 6. Mariah, 7. Elizabeth, 8.

Prior to finding this information, I found a web site entitled "Descendants of Dominique Pieratt". When I next tried to access this site, it would not allow me entry. I copied the following information from that site (there was more but I had not made a connection to the information at that time):
