Research Notes:

There is substantial uncertainty about the birthdates of the children of this Micajah Pickett. The birthdates reported here for the children of Micajah Pickett are undocumented. The birthdate reported for son Hiram S Pickett is inconsistent with the birthdates of his children. The children listed in the 1800 and 1810 census records cited above are inconsistent with the birthdates shown for the children of Micajah Pickett and Eliza Winn.

These are notes for Micajah Pickett, son of Micajah Pickett and Kizanna Hinson. We have attempted to identify notes regarding this person. However, there were several men named Micajah Pickett who may have been living in Mississippi and/or Louisiana at the same time. I would appreciate receiving clarification, if you have information.

Micajah Pickett (1777-1847), son of Micajah Pickett and Kizanna Hinson.

Micajah Pickett (1812-1898), son of William Pickett (son of Micajah Pickett and Kizanna Hinson) and Mary King.

Micajah K Pickett (1789- after 1710), son of Charles Pickett (son of Thomas Pickett (son of John Pickett and Mary Mess)) and Selah King.

Micajah Pickett (1765-1833) of Baton Rouge, Louisiana, son of Thomas Pickett (son of John Pickett and Mary Mess)

1820 Micajah Pickett Senior (age 45+), Micajah Pickett Junior (age 26-45), and Micajah K Pickett (age 16-24) all were listed in the census for Amite County, Mississippi. I suspect that: Micajah Pickett Senior was this Micajah, spouse of Rodah King or was a son of Thomas Pickett (son of John Pickett and Mary Mess); Micajah K Pickett, was a son of William Pickett and Mary King; and that Micajah Pickett Junior (age 26-45) might be a son of Charles Pickett (son of Thomas Pickett (son of John Pickett and Mary Mess)) and Selah King.

1820 Micajah Pickett Senior lived in Amite County, Mississippi in a household with free white males: 4 (under 10), 1 (10 thru 15), 1 (16 thru 18), 1 (16 thru 25), and 1 (45 and over); and free white females: 3 (10 thru 15) and 1 (26 thru 44); and 42 slaves. John K Pickett (26 thru 44) was listed nearby. [44]

Micajah K and Micajah Jr were listed on the same page:

1820 Micajah K Pickett lived in Amite County, Mississippi in a household with free white males: 1 (16 thru 25); and free white females: 1 (under 10) and 1 (16 thru 25); and 4 slaves. The adjacent listing was for Thomas K Pickett. [45]

1820 Micajah Pickett Junior lived in Amite County, Mississippi in a household with free white males: 1 (16 thru 25) and 1 (26 thru 44); and free white females: 1 (10 thru 15) and 1 (26 thru 44); and 16 slaves. [46]
