Grand-daughter Gladys Teegarden wrote letters to great-grandson Robert Wolfe mentioning the Picketts [Robert's annotations in parentheses]: "Some I do know now is my Grandmother Elizabeth May Page (Pickett) was a school teacher. Grandmother Elizabeth May Page had a brother John Page who was President of 2 different banks. He had a large home in the middle of one acre of ground in the middle of New Castle, Indiana. Charles T married Elizabeth May Page. Petrovna Jane was the 10th child 1883-1944. If you want more of that (the Page line) you may be able to get some information from New Castle, Indiana. That was the last bank (great) Uncle John Page was with.... He died some time in the 1920s. Maybe 28 or 29. My Grandmother Elizabeth Page Pickett came from a rather wealthy home. She had an expensive side saddle her children used t(o) play on."
