Re: Pickett family from Marion Co TN

Thank you. I appreciate your taking the time to respond.

I have seen this listing. It appears that there is an intermingling of two Pickett lines in several narratives.

This intermingling appears based on research done by Maxine Johnston Douglas, who pieced the histories together from empirical cemetery research.

The Edward T Pickett described is also attributed as being the son of Edward T Pickett (b. 1762 ENGLAND) who migrated to VA, then TN as opposed to the brother of John A(drian?) (Redmon) who migrated from NC to TN with his father [Nathaniel? / John? + Elizabeth] and family before 1800. Of course, there could have been more than one Edward T Pickett in that area, at that time.

Similarly, Nancy is believed to be a daughter of Edward T Pickett Sr

This intermingling appears based upon research done by Maxine Johnston Douglas, who pieced histories together from empirical cemetery research.

Primary sources referenced on the Internet are generally not available for review (such as a purported 1837 bill of sale for a slave).

From other sources, I have found:
Children:
1. Rebecca Pickett (1792- )
2. John Adrian (Redmon) Pickett, Sr (1794-1868)
3. William Pickett (1803- )
4. Joseph Pickett (1806- )
5. Jesse B Pickett (1813-1877)
6. Rev James Pickett (1814- )
7. Parson Mangum Pickett (1818-1863) [killed in Civil War as was his son]
8. Anderson Pickett (1819- )
9. Elizabeth Pickett (1820- )

The time gap between 4 and 5, above, allows for other, unidentified, children.

I do not claim to have 'the' accurate list. My interest is in finding an accurate listing, rather than determining who is right or wrong.

Independently verification of lines would be helpful, if anyone could supply authoritative documentation.

Thank you, again.
