  1.   Edward Pickett ( 2 )

  2.   Elizabeth D. Pickett ( 3 )

      Edward (2) noted on the census’ of 1840 that he filled out that he was born in New Jersey as was his wife.   He married " Catharine Conver " who was born on October 5, 1809 in New Jersey the daughter of Peter Conver and Elizabeth Remer Conver Strawn.

      Edward (2) was noted in the 1840 census as being a Carpenter by trade.   He more than likely came to the New Hope area sometime after his marriage and more than likely in the 1830's after the canal had been completed.   Whether he immediately started working for himself or someone else is unknown.   However he ended up becoming a boat builder in New Hope, Pennsylvania.   As noted in his estate settlement he owned his own " Boat Yard " and later including his son's William (4) and Joseph (9) in on the work.

      I had discovered " Mrs. Elizabeth D. Stout " in the Railroad books in the library at Lambertville, New Jersey.   Since her age would be close to " Elizabeth D. Pickett (2) " and since " Elizabeth (2) " is known to have married Theophilis Stout in Lambertville, I have assumed with pretty good reason that the two are one and the same.   This is something I don't normally do, that is assume anything for my records.   This one seems pretty sure based on all other records that I currently have seen.   She was living at 53 North Union Street in Lambertville with three dauthers, " Annie F., Ida F. ", and " Kate D. "   For this reason her family is included in my records....
