A biosketch of Thomas Pickett, son of Nathan Pickett, reported [9]:

Thomas G. Pickett, although just in the prime of life, has made his way to the front ranks among the energetic farmers of Bossier Parish, and owing to the attention he has always paid to each minor detail he has accumulated a fair share of this world's goods. He was born in the parish in which he is now living, his birth occurring in 1846, and was the eleventh of twelve children born to Nathan and Catherine (McIntire) Pickett, who were born in South Carolina, but were married in Mississippi, and from that State came to Bossier Parish, La., first settling in the Point, but afterward in different parts of the parish. Mr. Pickett was a worthy tiller of the soil, and died in 1855, his wife having passed to her long home two years earlier, both members of the Christian Church. Thomas G. Pickett inherits Scotch and Irish blood of his father, and his youth was spent on the latter’s plantation in Louisiana, his education being received in Yazoo County, Miss.
