Pickaway came from the Shawnee Indian word Piqua. Here is a paragraph from a Pickaway Co. history from Pickaway County OHGenweb:
The name Pickaway (originally Piqua) which was adopted was of Indian origin. It is said to have been the name of a numerous family of the Shawnee tribe who occupied the plains, known as the Pickaway Plains when the first white people came there.
Looks like your ancestor came from Pickaway Co.
