1768 Micajah Pickett was married to Kisanna Hinson on 24 Dec in Craven District, South Carolina.  Caveats: There are three generations of Micajah Pickett in this family and we have found land records naming Micajah Pickett in three geographically distinct areas: A) near the borders of Greenville Co, SC and Buncombe and Rutherford Counties, NC; B) On the Wateree River in Fairfield Co, SC; and C) on Cartledge Creek and the Pee Dee River in Richmond Co (East of Anson Co) NC. During this time, the border between North and South Carolina was changing. Photocopy Map: Locations of Micajah Pickett deeds in North/South Carolina. There are uncertainties in organizing documents about Micajah Pickett. One: In 1768, Micajah Pickett Jr purchased land on Cartledge Creek, Craven Co, South Carolina, which is a tributary to the Pee Dee River near Blewett Lake, north of Rockingham, North Carolina. The map above shows boundary changes in this region between North and South Carolina since the late 1700s. Two: Micajah Pickett, perhaps the one born about 1709, had land by Wateree River, Fairfield Co, SC before 1768. By 1809, William Pickett, perhaps the son of Micajah Pickett born 1748, was purchasing land on Wateree Creek. It is unclear which deeds on Wateree River involved Micajah Pickett, born 1748, or his father born about 1709 or his son born 1777, all named Micajah Pickett. We have listed all documents involving Micajah Pickett on Cartledge Creek, Pee Dee River, or in Anson Co, North Carolina, in these notes for Micajah, born 1748. We would appreciate help in sorting this out. 1768 On 12 January in Craven Co, SC, William Stoutly Sherly of St. Pauls Parish, Georgia sold to Micajah Pickett Jr., for 12 pounds, 125 acres previously granted to Wm. Blewett on Mar 6, 1750, on north bank of Cartledge Creek....to Dry Fork, northeast of Pee Dee [River].  Photocopy Map: Cartledge Creek, North/South Carolina. 1768 On 13 January in Craven Co, SC, William Stoutley Sherley of St. Paul's Parish, Providence of Georgia, sold to Micajah Pickett Jr., of Craven County South Carolina, for 20 pounds, tract on the northeast side of Pee Dee River to west side of Cartledge's Creek, granted to him April 1762.

Blewett March 6, 1759 and sold to George Carter, then by deed to Wm. Stutely Shirley. It is said to have been granted in 1750 by mistake and is now in possession of Micajah Pickett. James Terry, Charles Hines. Proved July Court of 1775 by Charles Hines. 1776 Micajah Pickett perhaps served during the Revolutionary War, from South Carolina, by furnishing supplies to Col. Hampton's men.  1777 In a deed dated Oct. 27, 1777, Micajah Pickett, of South Carolina, conveyed 100 acres in Anson Co, northeast of the Pee Dee River... 1779 A lease and release [no location reported] was recorded for Micajah Pickett and wife to Jasper Rogers.  1780 Micajah Pickett and James Pickett, perhaps this one and his brother, were in a spy ring in Charleston: "In July, Francis 'The Swamp Fox' Marion, marched with General Horatio Gates to Camden, South Carolina, where General Gates ordered Marion to set up a spy ring in Charleston (among his men in this operation are James and Micajah Pickett). After Gates' defeat Francis Marion and his men set up a guerrilla movement to harass and destroy the British, giving rise to the legend of "Swamp Fox". In December of 1780 Governor John Rutledge promoted Francis Marion to Brigadier General. Joining with General Nathaniel Greene, Continental forces slowly pushed General Lord Cornwallis out of the South and consolidated their hold. In 1782 Colonel Thompson led a 700 man force from Charleston and managed to scatter Marion's men, but was subsequently defeated. Francis Marion’s last action in the war was on August 29, 1782 when he ambushed 200 men under Major Thomas Fraser at Fair Lawn, who attempted to reverse the trap and was left with an ammunition wagon."  1781 Micajah Pickett supplied 16 bushels of corn for Militia use; payment was made 31 March 1785.  1782 Micajah Pickett, perhaps this one or his father, and Charles Pickett purchased items at the estate sale of Thomas Miles in Camden District, SC.  1783 Micajah [Mecaga] Pickett [Pikett], perhaps this one or his father, warranted the appraisement of the estate of John Agnew in Camden District, SC. 1783-84 The will of brother James Pickett of Camden District, South Carolina named wife Susan and children John, Ruben, Elizabeth, and Frankey. Brother Micajah Pickett, friend Frederick Briggs, and wife Susana were named executors.

William Cason was appointed overseer from Wateree Creek to Dutchmans Creek, where Micajah owned land, according to the deeds listed above.  1786, 1792, 1794, 1797, 1798 Micajah Pickett served on the grand jury for Fairfield Co, South Carolina.  1786 On 17 August, Micajah Pickett was chosen as an arbitor for a dispute between Isaac Love and Thomas Stark in Fairfield Co, South Carolina.  1787 Micajah Pickett was named as one of several tax assessors for the district between Broad and Catawba Rivers, when the region between the old and new lines of Charleston and Orangeburgh districts was assigned to the parish of St. Matthew.  1788 On 4 April, Andrew McDowell surveyed two plats of 600 acres and 400 acres on Wateree and Rocky Creeks, Camden District, SC for Micajah Pickett.

Witness: John Dick, Reuben Stark, Signed: Stephen Terry and Mary Terry his wife. Fairfield Co, SC.  1800 There were two listings for Micajah Pickett in Fairfield Co, South Carolina; perhaps separate households for Micajah Pickett or for father and son. One household had one male age 0-9, one male age 10-15, 3 males age 16-25, and one female age 45+.  One household had one male age 26-44, one female age 10-15, and one female age 16-25.

This could be Kisannah living with her son James (age 30) and his wife.  1820 A Micajah Pickett [Micagah Picket] age 45+ and female age 45+ lived with 2 boys (one < 10, one 10-16) and 2 girls (one < 10, one 10-16) in Greenville, SC.  1823 On 31 October, 1823, Kisanna [Kezannah] Pickett certified that she had received room and board from her son James Pickett, of Rutherford Co, North Carolina, between 13 Jan 1814 and 1 Jan 1823, in place of the $42 due to her from the estate and that she had received back the Negroes, Jim and Vilet, that Kezannah, then of Fairfield District, had sold to James Pickett on 13 Jan 1814, but which remained part of her estate.  1823 Kisanna [Kezannah] Pickett certified that she had received $262.12 from James Pickett for Willis, who was born to Vilet while James owned her. The accounting involved $151 that James had spent to raise, board, and pay tax for Willis; corn that James had lent to Kezannah and articles purchased from peddlers for $19.35; and cash paid to Isaiah Pickett for Kezannah's note of hand for $91.81. James certified that he had received $262.12 from Kezannah (perhaps in resolution of the above mentioned debts) for Willis and that he would return Wilis for her use if she repaid the amount with interest.  1823 The will of Micajah Pickett of Buncomb County, North Carolina, was probated 15 Feb 1823 and named Micajah's children by Kisanna and Susanna.  Transcription Will of Micajah Pickett. Photocopy Will of Micajah Pickett (1). Photocopy Will of Micajah Pickett (2). Photocopy Will of Micajah Pickett (3). 1825 Kezanna Pickett requested either William Choice or Nimrod Underwood to pay James Pickett "the amount of his judgement ... that I confessed to him at April last; judgement is for $2,127.77 ... as will appear in your office".  1827 In the deposition of Jeptha Pickett given February 5, 1827, the second interrogatory and response are as follows (punctuation added): "Int. 2d What were the ages of the legitimate children of Micajah Pickett decd." "Ans. William Pickett was born Decr 15th, 1769; Mary Pickett was born April 12th, 1772; Elizabeth Pickett was born Sep 13, 1774; Micajah Pickett was born March 5th, 1777; James Pickett was born Oct 11th 1779; John Pickett was born March 21, 1782; Reuben Pickett was born May 27th, 1785; Jeptha Pickett was born April 17th, 1788; Charles Pickett was born April 12, 1791; Isaiah Pickett was born July 19, 1793. The above is according to the family Bible of Micajah Pickett." 1828 "Know all men ... I James Pickett, in consideration of $2067.40 due 1 day after date payable to Wm Choice, Comm. Equity of Greenville District, hath bargained ... to Jeptha Pickett, Co-signer of Note of Security, his heirs ... forever the following negro(es), to wit, Landen, Harriet, March, Mariah, Kezia and her 4 children, Romeo, Henry, John and Alsey, to have and ... unto the sd Jeptha Pickett, his heirs ...

Witnesses: Tandy Walker, S Crayton, J H Goodlett, CCP and JQ."  1829 Kisanna [Kesannah] Pickett agreed that she, widow of Micajah Pickett, had received Micajah's bond, 10 Jan 1805, and an agreement of separation, with son Charles Pickett appointed as trustee, and that she would pay James Pickett for clothing and boarding and support and would pay the balance to sons Wm, Micajah Jun, James, John, Charles, and Reuben and Reuben is not but to them and their heirs forever... dated 4 July.  1829 Kezanna Pickett brought a legal suit against James McKenney for sale of land in Rutherford Co, North Carolina.  1829 "Susanna Johns and others vs Kezanna Pickett and others, from Rutherford. Decree upon report - sale confirmed and order of reference to David L Swain to take the accounts of Hiram Whitted."  1829-37 Royal Bryan paid taxes in Franklin County, Georgia, acting as agent for James Pickett (non-resident) in 1829-31  and for Kizannah Pickett in 1833-1847 . The legal battle between Kizannah Pickett and Susanna Johns went before the North Carolina Supreme Court and arose because Micajah transferred much of his estate to an heir of Susanna Johns before Micajah died, so Micajah's estate could not meet the obligations that Micajah had made to Kizannah when they separated.  Research Notes: "On Dec. 20, 1768, Micajah married Kisannah (or Kezannah) ... daughter of Philip ... Hinson ...[He had] land and slaves in the northeast quarter of Fairfield County. ... In 1799, Micajah purchased almost 400 acres on White Oak Creek in Rutherford Co, North Carolina, (about ten miles southwest of Rutherfordton) ... [H]e left Kisannah ... in 1800, and began living with Susannah Johns in NC. On March 27, 1800, Susannah Johns, ... a widow with one child, entered into an agreement (Buncombe Co, North Carolina, records) with Micajah to live with him ... On Dec. 12, 1800, his wife, Kisannah, agreed to a legal separation (Fairfield Co, SC, records), and in 1805, Micajah agreed to provide $9,850 with interest for her at his death, plus various monies to four of their children. They already had, by deed of gift in 1800, transferred land and slaves to their oldest sons. After living about six years on White Oak Creek, in 1803 Micajah moved further to the northwest in Rutherford Co, ... on the Green River where it is joined by Panther and Brights creeks (today at the western end of Lake Agder, in Polk Co, North Carolina). He accumulated 1,075 acres there while selling off his property along White Oak Creek. Micajah and Susannah Johns had six children born between 1801 and 1812 ... Between October 1811 and February 1812, Micajah brought 722 acres in upper Greenville Co, SC, along the North Fork of the Saluda River. He then relocated his residence there and added another 500 acres in 1815. In 1817, he sold all of his Green River lands ...to the children of his second family .... Micajah's Greenville county property lay along the drover road, a primary migration route from upper SC into frontier NC over Saluda Gap, so he opened a tavern and public house to serve travellers. This was operated by Susannah Johns and her children: the oldest sons, Malachai and Joseph, also worked as overseers on Micajah's plantation. Charles Pickett, one of Micajah's sons by Kisannah, also lived with Micajah for a time and ran his mill. In December, 1833, Micajah died at his home in "Pickett's Valley", Greenville Co, SC. He left all his Greenville County lands to ... Jeptha, and Isiah, ... Susannah Johns ... returned to NC. ... Jeptha sold his Greenville County inheritance to his older brother James Pickett, who moved there from Fairfield Co, and, by legal agreement with the other brothers, brought Kisannah along to provide her room and board ... Lands left by Micajah in Buncombe Co, NC, and the Green River lands in Rutherford Co, NC, were sold at auction and the court paid the individuals of both families their "due", ..."  Photocopy Map: Locations of Micajah Pickett deeds in North/South Carolina. There is some uncertainty about the ancestry of Micajah Pickett. Rosemary B Hill and Dixie J Clark, A Gathering of Picketts, Vol. 1, p. 295-308 suggest that Micajah Sr. was the father of Micajah. Other documents suggest that Micajah was the son of James Pickett, brother of Micajah Sr. Photocopy Pickett Bible Record. This bible record image was found once on the internet. It appears to list James Pickett as the father of Micajah Pickett. According to this Bible, Micajah Pickett was born 25 Dec. 1748. [Lumpkin bible, no further information] The ancestry through Micajah Pickett Sr is shown here. 1817 Micajah Pickett of Greenville Co, South Carolina, reportedly sold several pieces of property totalling over 1075 acres, near Green River and Panther Creek in Rutherford County, North Carolina, including his residence, to James McKinney of Rutherford for $3500.
