      William Pickett (1) resided in Pelesgrove Township, Salem County, New Jersey.   The date of his birth as well as who his parents were is currently unknown.   He married " Elizabeth Dunlap " on October 4, 1806 in Salem County, New Jersey.   The date of her birth as well as who her parents were is also currently unknown.   Together they had one known child but more than likely there were more.   2.  Edward Dunlap Pickett  ~  b. 1807  ~  d. October 12, 1888 ~ " Age 81 "

        Edward Dunlap Pickett (2) was born in Pelesgrove Township, Salem County, New Jersey the son of William Pickett and Elizabeth Dunlap Pickett in 1807.   His headstone shows a birth date of 1806 however based on the date of his parent's marriage, and the fact that Edward (2) "always" noted in census forms the year as 1807, it was more than likely in 1807.   Edward (2) had also noted on all the census records that he was born in 1807.

        Edward (2) first shows up in New Hope, Pennsylvania in the 1840 census ( which notes his birth and that of his wife's in New Jersey ).   In 1828 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 employed as a Ship Builder.   According to his estate settlement he owned his own " Boat Yard Lot " in New Hope which is believe to have been on the canal between South Main and New Streets.   His business must have been profitable since he not only owned his own Boat Yard ( which comprised three separate lots ) but also four houses and three other lots.

        In the 1880 census ( recorded June 3, 1880 ) Edward (2), age 73 and noted as a widower, is shown residing on South Main Street, New Hope, Pennsylvania with his son Joseph (9) and Joseph's (9) wife Emma.   Catharine had preceded her husband in passed away in 1875 at the age of 65 and was interred in the Mount Hope Cemetery, Lambertville, New Jersey.   Residing next door was his son Jacob (7) and his wife Clarrisa.

        Edward (2) passed away on Friday, October 12, 1888 in his home on South Main Street, New Hope, Pennsylvania.   He was interred in the Mount Hope Cemetery, Lambertville, New Jersey on Tuesday, October 16, 1888 beside his wife.   He was 81 years old at the time of his death.   ( A short obituary, his Estate Settlement and funeral costs can be seen in "Appendix A" - Click Here ).

      In the 1860 census, which is the first census showing that he had moved out on his own, William (4) is shown living in New Hope, Pennsylvania with his wife Phoebe and his " two oldest children".   He is also shown as being employe in the " Boat Building Occupation " and was more than likely working at his Dad Edward's (2) " Boat Yard Lot " in New Hope.

Taken: June 24, 1920
New Hope, Pa.

      John S. Pickett (8) was born the 6th child and the 3rd son of Edward Dunlap Pickett (2) and Catherine Conver Pickett on August 8, 1844.   He apparently was born in New Hope, Pennsylvania.   He married " Louisa Jane Everitt " on October 3, 1866 in Lambertville, New Jersey.   She was born on January 13, 1846 to Jonathan and Mary Ann Naylor Everitt in New Jersey.   Louisa, in 1890, purchased the north half of the double house fronting on River Street from her father-in-law Edward's (2) Estate in New Hope, Pennsylvania.  ( see Edward's (2) estate settlement - "click here" )

      In the 1880 census they are shown living on Waterloo Street in the north side of a double house that was owned by his dad Edward (2).   His brother William (4) lived in the south side of this double house which was also owned by Edward (2).

      In the 1910 census John (8) is shown as owning his own restaurant on North Main Street in New Hope, Pennsylvania.   Very possibly he either lived over the restaurant or behind it in the same building.   They also possibly resided in the home that they purchased on River Street from John's (8) Dad Edward's (2) estate in 1890.   Also living with them in 1910 were two of their grandson's Arthur Updyke (90) and Fred Updyke (91) who possibly moved in with them when their daughter Elizabeth (33) passed away in 1903.

      In the 1920 census John (8) is still shown as owning his own restaurant on North Main Street in New Hope, Pennsylvania at the age of 75.   Also still living with them in 1920 were their two grandson's Arthur Updyke (90) and Fred Updyke (91).

      John (8) preceded his wife in passing away on December 27, 1925 at the age of 81 and was interred in the Riverview Cemetery, Lambertville, New Jersey on December 31, 1925.   His wife Louisa passed away on August 18, 1927 also at the age of 81 and was interred next to her husband on August 20, 1927.

(Manchester Valley Painting)
" Manchester Valley "
By: Joseph Pickett ( 9 )

      Joseph Pickett (9) was born the 7th child and the 4th son of Edward Dunlap Pickett (2) and Catherine Conver Pickett in March, 1848.   He was born in New Hope based on the census of 1850.   He was married twice.   He first married " Ema _____ " who was born in ca. 1855 in Pennsylvania.   It is unknown what happened to his 1st wife however she and Joseph (9) were living with his father Edward (2) in 1880.   She possibly died during childbirth.

      Joseph (9) was later married 2nd to " Emily Mary Terry " on February 4, 1890 in Vincentown, New Jersey after his first wife's passing.    Emily was born the daughter of Walter W. & Sara Jane Flood Terry in January or early February, 1848.

      During Joseph's (9) early life he was a canal "boatbuilder", learning the trade of carpentry from his father.   He resided on South Main Street according to the Census of 1880, with his father Edward (2) and his 1st wife Ema.   He probably lived with his father until his father's death in 1888.   He later became a "Storekeeper" or merchant in a store on Bridge Street that was along the canal, in a building still standing (2019).   He moved to a house, also on the canal on Mechanic Street which is also still standing, & serves as a store (2019).   Joseph (9) is said to haunt that house to this day.  ( "See Appendix B" - click here )

      While running his store on Bridge Street, Joseph (9) started, without ever having a lesson, to paint landscapes.   It is believed that he started painting in his late 50's or early 60's.   Joseph's (8) paintings are basically in the style used by Grandma Moses, that is, most things painted were simplistic & out of scale, however they were rich with colors.

      Joseph's (9) paintings now hang in the New York Museum of Modern Art in New York City, & the Newark Museum in Newark, NJ.   His most famous painting is that of "Manchester Valley"  ( "See Appendix B" - click here )  which is a painting of the old New Hope High School.   During 1990, it was brought to my attention that a "study" of this painting was being sold by an art gallery in New York City.   I believe that Joseph (9), an untrained artist, would have never made a study & therefore feel this to be a fake.   The selling price was over $100,000.00.   The titles of the other paintings that the author is sure are his works include "Coryell's Ferry" & "Washington under the Council Tree".

      Other paintings that have surfaced that are claimed to be his work include "Red House on the Hill" & "Sunset on the Lehigh Canal, New Hope".   These two have not, as yet, been verified to the satisfaction of the author as Joseph (9) originals.

      In the 1890's, Joseph (9) ran a "shooting gallery" at the Neshaminy Falls Grove, then a well known amusement park, on the Neshaminy, just a few miles above Hulmeville.   It is believed that this is where he met his wife, Emily.   He was also known to often run concession stands at multiple fairs & parks around the county until his marriage.   After his marriage, he led a more stay-at-home life.

      Joseph (9) inherited some money of an unknown amount from his father Edward's (2) Estate.  ( see Edward's (2) estate settlement - "click here" )  Joseph (9) died on December 12, 1918 at the age of 70 in New Hope, Pennsylvania and his funeral was held in New Hope, with interment on December 17, 1918 in the Hulmeville Cemetery in Hulmeville, Pennsylvania.   His wife, Emily, died in 1929 at the age of 81 and was interred next to her husband.   They also have a footstone on their grave. There is no known photograph of Joseph (9), however he and his brother "John S. Pickett" (8) were said to look just like twins.   A photo of "John" (8) is shown above.   Joseph (9) and Emily never had any children.

      Isabella Pickett (10) was born the 8th and last child and 4th daughter of Edward Dunlap Pickett (2) and Catherine Conver Pickett on September 14, 1851.   She appears to have been born in New Hope, Pennsylvania based on the census of 1860.   Isabella (10) was married twice.

      She first married " John C. Holcombe " who was born in ca. 1838.   They had two known children together.   John preceded his wife in passing away on April 18, 1872 at the age of 34 and he was interred in the Mt. Hope Cemetery, Lambertville, New Jersey close to his daughter Matilda (37).

      Isabella (10) then married " Charles T. Kitchin " as the book titled " History of Bucks County " notes [ written by Battle, page 1095 ].   " Charles " was born in ca. 1847, his parents however are currently unknown.   This same book mentions that " Charles T. Kitchin " had a stepson named Joseph Holcombe (38) which further assures this marriage.   She must have married " Charles " in ca. 1875.   " Charles " had been a soldier during the Civil War and is believed to have been a First Lieutenant in the 38th New Jersey Infantry.

      " Charles T. Kitchin " had also been previously married however his wife's name is currenly unknown.   He had one son during this marriage, " Elmer Alfred Kitchin (39x) ", and based on dates it would appear the his mother either died during child birth or shortly after.   " Elmer (39x) ", who was born in 1874 and would have been 6 years old at this time, is not shown residing with them in the 1880 census.   He was more than likely residing with his mom's family.

      In the 1880 census ( recorded June 3, 1880 ) they are shown residing on Mechanic Street, New Hope, Pennsylvania with only four children: Joseph Holcombe (38), Addison (40), Burleigh (41), and W. Augustus (42).   However Elmer Alfred Kitchin, who was born in 1874 and would have been 6 years old at this time, is not shown residing with them.   Apparently, based on his birth date and the marriage of Isabella (10) and Charles T. Kitchin, Elmer was the son of Charles but not Isabella (10).   It would appear that Charles T. Kitchin was previously married and more than likely his wife passed away during the birth of Elmer and was still residing with his previous wife's family.

      Charles died on November 23, 1887 at the age of 40 and was interred in Mt. Hope Cemetery, Lambertville, New Jersey near Isabella (10) first husband John.   Isabella (10) died on April 8, 1930 at the age of 78 and was interred by her second husband Charles.   Isabella (10) is believed to have had 8 children.

      Due to World War I John (102), at the age of 20, enlisted in the Army on May 8, 1918 at Fort Slocum, New York.   He served as a Private in the 21st Artillery, Company C., during World War I.   He served overseas in France from July 10, 1918 until July 7, 1919.   He was at Chateau-Thierry from August 10, 1918 through August 14, 1918 ( after the battle ).   His unit then moved to Saint-Mihiel arriving on August 26, 1918 and participated in the " Battle of Saint-Mihiel " from September 12th until victory in that battle on September 15, 1918.   His unit then moved to Meuse-Argonne area arriving on September 22, 1918 and participated in the " Meuse-Argonne Offensive " from September 26, 1918 until victory on November 11, 1918.

      At mid-night on Sunday John (102) went to his job on the bridge.   At 5:30 a.m. Monday morning September 18, 1944 a passerby found John (102) on Bridge Steet near the bridge in New Hope passed out.   Dr. Lieby was called and pronounced that John (102), at the age of 46, had died from a heart condition.   His funeral was held at his home at 2:00 on Friday, September 22, 1944 with Rev.

      Due to World War II only his daughter Margaret (150) was able to attend his funeral.   Both his son's, John, Jr. (151) and Richard (152), were with the Marine Corps in the South Pacific.

      Winnie, after her husband's passing, moved to Lambertville, New Jersey ca.
