Research Notes:

In addition to reviewing several original sources, we have reviewed research summaries published in 1911 by Stella Pickett Hardy [157], 1941 by Clayton Torrance [158], 1998 by Hill and Clark [159], and 1990 by Patricia Hunter [160]. Hill and Clark acknowledged the transcriptions of many Virginia documents made by Ruth and Sam Spiracio. Hunter acknowledged the encouragement of Dixie Clark.

Different researchers have attempted to identify the possible children of John Pickett Senior. Patricia F. Hunter [161], named seven "proven" children, including one daughter: Blessing, Henry, John Jr, James, Mace, Thomas, and William. Dixie Clark and Rosemary Hill [162], named ten "likely" children: John Jr, Henry, William, Thomas, James, Mace, Martin, Micajah, Francis, and Hannah. It is likely that all are closely related, and very plausible that they were all siblings, as shown in these notes.

1736 John Pickett was granted a patent at the fork of the Rappahannock R. on Stanton's R.--100 acres on 9 Dec 1736 and 188 acres on 13 Dec 1736. He had 800 acres of land. [Eng. Duplicates of Loss VA Records by Louis de Cornets, Jr.] Cannot find this record.

1803 Report of a debt due (likely refers to a descendant of this John): "John Pickett. £44.10.0, claimed for war interest. Suit was brought upon a bond in the District court of Fredericksburg. Upon the trial judgment was entered up against Pickett after deducting the above sum for eight years' interest during the war." [163]

Several descendants of Ann Pickett, spouse of John Powell, show her as a daughter in this family and have DNA matches with Robert's family. We have not yet added her as a daughter of this family. We seek further evidence to clarify this potential relationship.
