I am certainly no guru but we may have a link here!Richard Pickett firstname.lastname@example.org and Scott Pickett of Durham NC (I don't have his e-mail) supplied me with this info.
My gggggg grandfather was William Pickett (listed taxes in Orange County 1779 ...census 1800...NC 618....00101-00201-00)
I have a copy of William's will (recorded 7 Feb. 1807 in Orange County NC)William died soon thereafter because his estate sale was 1 Sept. 1807
William and Elizabeth (last name unknown) were married about 1764?.....their children were named in the will but DOB, was not given for most. They were
William Jr. (this might be your guy)
Mark (this is my ggggg grandfather)DOB 1767
wed to Mary Bryant 19 Dec.1792
wed to Abner Perry
Jinny (the older)
Jinny (the younger)
In addition to the will I have a photocopy of the land grant given to William Pickett 1755 by Lord Granville for 456 acres. This farm, homestead, estate whatever it should be called now lies under Jordan Lake.
I encourage you to contact Richard at the above address and I will be glad to share all of what I have with you
