James Pickett both had a son named Reubin, but there may have been several men named Reuben Pickett, who are difficult to distinguish in documents. We seek help in identifying which documents pertain to each. Our notes for several men named Reubin Pickett are among the notes for Reubin, shown here as a son of James.
