(Chris Pickett)











         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.   She was born the daughter of Edward Dunlap & Mary Parret Dunlap.   The date of her birth is 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 "




Was born in 1807
in Pelesgrove Township, Salem County, New Jersey
the son of William Pickett ( 1 ) and Elizabeth Dunlap Pickett


         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 " first shows up in the New Hope, Pennsylvania area possibly residing between Lumberville and New Hope 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 " apparently came to this area to use his skills as a carpenter / boat builder to build boats to be used on the newly completed Delaware Canal ( completed in 1832 ) that was a 60 mile long canal that connected Bristol, Pa. to Easton, Pa. where it connected with the Lehigh Canal.   " Edward " soon became one of the most successful canal boat builders in the area.

           In the 1850 Federal Census ( recorded October 1, 1850 ) " Edward " is noted as a 43 year old " Shipwright " with a real estate value of $3,000.00 and his wife Catharine was noted as a 38 year old housekeeper and they were still residing somewhere between Lumberville and New Hope, Pa.   " A Shipwright is a carpenter skilled in ship construction and repair ".

           It would also appear based on the 1850 census that possibly " 2 " of " Edward's " neighbors were working for him since neither of them had any real estate value:  James Crothers ( age 45 ) who was also noted as a " Shipwright " and George W. Wilson ( age 32 ) noted as a " ship carpenter ".

           Also in the 1850 census it is noted that they had " 7 " of their children residing with them :
                   Elizabeth D. ~ ( age 20 )
                   William P. ~ ( age 17 ~ noted as a Ship Wright )
                   Mary Ann ~ ( age 15 )
                   Sarah ~ ( age 13 )
                   Jacob L. ~ ( age 9 )
                   John S. ~ ( age 7 )
                   and Joseph ~ ( age 2 )

Prior to the 1860 Federal census :

           " Elizabeth Dunlap Pickett ( 3 ) " married " Theophilus Stout " on May 6, 1852 and moved out on her own
           " William P. Pickett ( 4 ) " married " Phoebe Maria Kitchen " on March 7, 1854 and also moved out on his own.

           In the 1860 Federal Census ( recorded July 9, 1860 ) " Edward " is noted as a 54 year old " Boat Builder " with a real estate value of $8,000.00 and a personal estate value of $700.00 and his wife Catharine was noted as a 53 year old housekeeper and they are still noted as having a post office address of Lumberville, Pa. and were still residing near New Hope, Pa.   Residing with them are " 6 " of their children :
           Mary Ann ~ ( Age 23 )
           Sarah ~ ( Age 21 )
           Jacob L.( Age 19 and noted as a boat builder )
           John S. ~ ( Age 16 )
           Joseph ~ ( Age 12 )
           and Isabella ~ ( Age 7 )

Prior to the 1870 Federal census :

           " Mary Ann Pickett ( 5 ) " had married " William Allen Dobbins " in 1870 and moved out on her own.
           " Jacob Pickett ( 7 ) " married " Clarissa H. Saxton " and also moved out on his own
                 however he was still working with his dad " Edward " as a " Carpenter ".
           " John S. Pickett ( 8 ) " married " Louisa Jane Everitt " on October 3, 1866 and also moved out on his own
                 however he also was still working with his dad " Edward " as a " Ship Builder ".
           And Isabella ( 10 ) married " John C. Holcombe " in 1868 and also moved out on her own.

           In the 1870 census ( recorded July 7, 1870 ) " Edward " is noted as a 62 year old " Ship Joiner " with a real estate value of $4,315.00 and a personal estate value of $400.00 and his wife Catharine was noted as a 61 year old housekeeper and they are now noted as residing in New Hope, Pennsylvania.   Residing with them are " 2 " of their children :
           Sarah ~ ( Age 32 )
           and Joseph ~ ( Age 21 ~ noted as a carpenter )

           " Catharine Conver Pickett " preceded her husband in passed away in 1875 at the age of 65 and was interred in the Mount Hope Cemetery, Lambertville, New Jersey.

           In the 1880 census ( recorded June 3, 1880 ) " Edward " is noted as being 73 years old and noted as a widower and is shown still residing in his home on South Main Street, New Hope, Pennsylvania with his son " Joseph ( 9 ) " and his first wife " Emma ".

           " Edward Dunlap Pickett ( 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.   Residing next door was his son " Jacob ( 7 ) " and his wife Clarrisa.

( A short obituary, his Estate Settlement and funeral costs can be seen in " Appendix A " - Click Here ).

           During " Edward's " lifetime he was employed as a Ship Builder.   According to his estate settlement he eventually 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.   He and his wife Catharine had " 8 " children together:

        In the 1910 Federal Census ( Recorded April 15, 1910 ) they are now noted as residing in a house on New Street in New Hope, Bucks County, Pennsylvania.   They either built a home on their vacant lot there or moved into the home that they owned that " Sarah " had purchased from her dad " Edward's ( 2 ) " estate.   " Samuel " is noted as a 53 year old " Laborer in a Paper Mill " and
" Sarah " is noted as a 63 year old " Homemaker ".   No one else is residing with them.

        It is believed that " Samuel Buchanan " preceded his wife in passing away sometime prior to her passing in 1917 since
" Sarah " is noted as passing away while residing with her son Charles ( 33a ) and his family in Bridesburg, Pennsylvania.   He was possibly interred in the Mount Hope Cemetery, Lambertville, Hunterdon County, New Jersey next to where his wife is currently interred.

        " Sarah S. Pickett Buchanan ( 6 ) " passed away on April 17, 1917 in Bridesburg, Pennsylvania.   She was interred in the Mount Hope Cemetery, Lambertville, Hunterdon County, New Jersey.   They had " 1 " child together.

but for sure in Pennsylvania.


         He married " Clarissa Hellings ' Carrie ' Saxton " who was born the daughter of Plumley and Terressa M. Hagerman Saxton in March 4, 1850.

         The Federal Census of 1860 shows " Jacob " at age 19 being a " Boat Builder " with his father Edward ( 2 ).

         " Jacob " enlisted in Company F, 11th Infantry Regiment, Pennsylvania as a musician on September 12, 1862.   However he was mustered out of the same regiment 13 days later on September 25, 1862 in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania because they felt that since he was a " Boat Builder " he was more valuable going back to building boats for the canal.

         The Federal Census of 1880 ( Recorded: June 3, 1880 ) shows them residing in a home on Main Street in New Hope.   Residing next door was his dad " Edward ( 2 ) ", his brother " Joseph ( 9 ) " and Joseph's first wife " Emma " residing in what was called the
" The Homestead Lot ".

         Sadly, most of the " 1890 census " materials were destroyed in a 1921 fire and none of the information for the State's of New Jersey, Maryland, Pennsylvania or Delaware survived the fire.

         After Edward's ( 2 ) passing " Carrie Pickett " is shown as purchasing what was known as " The Homestead Lot " fronting on Main Street in New Hope, Pennsylvania from her father-in-law Edward's ( 2 ) Estate during that settlement in December, 1890.

( see Edward's ( 2 ) estate settlement - " Click Here" ) .....

         " Jacob " also purchased a lot known as the Grave Yard Hollow lot, by the canal, from his father Edward's ( 2 ) Estate.   However, as noted below, the census of 1900 shows him and " Carrie " residing in Solebury.

         In the Federal census of 1900 ( Recorded: June 13, 1900 ) they are shown residing in a home that they owned, with a mortgage, in Solebury, Buck County, Pennsylvania.   " Jacob " is noted as a 59 year old " Ship Carpenter " and " Carrie is noted as a 50 year old " homemaker ".   Residing with them are :
         their nephew " Harrison C. Haas " ~ ( Age 11 )
         and since " Clarissa's " dad " Plumley Saxton " had passed away June 6, 1887,
         her mother " Terressa M. Hagerman Saxton " ~ ( Age 84 ) had moved in with them.

         In the Federal census of 1910 ( Recorded: June 13, 1910 ) they are shown residing in the same home that they owned, with a mortgage, in Solebury, Buck County, Pennsylvania.   " Jacob " is noted as a 69 year old " Carpenter " and " Carrie " is noted as a 59 year old " homemaker ".   Residing with them are :
         their nephew " Harrison C. Haas " ~ ( Age 21 ) along with his dad " Jacob E. Haas " ~ ( Age 63 ).
         Also residing with them were " 2 " boarders :
         " Marvin W. Sharp " ~ ( Age 26 ) and " Kathryn G. Sharp " ~ ( Age 26 ) who were husband and wife.

         " Jacob L. Pickett ( 7 ) " preceded his wife in passed away on August 25, 1914 at the age of 73 years, 11 months and 17 days and was interred in the Union Cemetery, Richboro, Pennsylvania.

         In the Federal census of 1920 ( Recorded: January 15, 1920 ) " Carrie " now age 70, along with her sister " Emily S. Fell " ~ ( Age 65 ), are residing with " their " widowed brother-in-law " William Vanhart " and his family on North 24th Street, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

John S. Pickett ( 8 ) and
Louisa J. Everitt Pickett
Taken: June 24, 1920
New Hope, Pennsylvania



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.


         " John " 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.
( See the " Everitt Family History " by this author dating back to " 1612 " )

         The 1870 Federal Census ( Recorded: July 7, 1870 ) was the first census that they showup in as a family and they were residing in New Hope, Bucks County, Pennsylvania.   " John " was noted as a 24 year old " Boat Builder " and was more than likely working with his Dad " Edward " in his Boat Yard.    " Louisa " is noted as a 23 year old housekeeper raising their " 2 " oldest children :
         Eliza ~ ( Age 2 )
         and Jacob ~ ( Age 3 months )

         In the 1880 Federal Census ( Recorded: June 3, 1880 ) they are shown living on Waterloo Street in the north side of a double house that was owned by his dad " Edward ".   His brother " William ( 4 ) " lived in the south side of this double house which was also owned by their dad " Edward ".   " John " was noted as a 35 year old " Laborer " and " Louisa " is noted as a 33 year old housekeeper raising their " 3 " oldest children :
         Eliza ~ ( Age 12 )
         Jacob ~ ( Age 10 )
         and Sarah ~ ( Age 6 )

         Sadly ..... most of the " 1890 Federal Census " materials were destroyed in a 1921 fire and none of the information for the State's of New Jersey, Maryland, Pennsylvania or Delaware survived the fire.

      " Louisa ", however in 1890, purchased their home on the north half of the double house fronting on Waterloo Street from her father-in-law Edward's ( 2 ) Estate in New Hope, Pennsylvania.
( See Edward's ( 2 ) estate settlement - " Click Here " )

         In the 1900 Federal Census ( Recorded: June 4, 1900 ) " John " is noted as being a 56 year old " Restuarant Keeper " in a building they were renting at 47 South Main Street in New Hope.   Quite possibly they resided in the same building.   " Louisa " is noted as a 54 year old " housekeeper " but was also more than likely helping in the restaurant.   " 2 " of their children were living with them at this time :
         Their youngest son " Elmer " ~ ( Age 13 ) who was noted as attending school
         and " Jacob " ~ ( Age 30 ) who was noted as a " Paper Bag Maker ".
         Their son " Jacob " was also married at this time however his wife " Minerva " and their 3 children
         were living with her parents in East Raritan, New Jersey.

         In the 1910 Federal Census ( Recorded: April 15, 1910 ) " John " is still shown as owning his own restaurant on North Main Street in New Hope, Pennsylvania and is 66 years old.   Very possibly, as already noted, he either lived over the restaurant or behind it in the same building.   They also possibly resided in the home that they purchased on Waterloo Street from " John's " Dad " Edward's " estate in 1890.   " Louisa " is noted as a 64 year old " Homemaker " but was also more than likely helping in the restaurant as well.   Also living with them in 1910 were :
         their step-grandson's " Arthur Updyke ( 70 ) "
         and " Fred Updyke ( 71 ) "
         who more than likely moved in with them
         when their daughter " Elizabeth A. 'Eliza' Pickett Updyke ( 25 ) " passed away in 1903.

" Interesting Pickett Family Note "

         At the time of " Elizabeth A. 'Eliza' Pickett Updyke's ( 25 ) " passsing her step-son " Arthur Updyke ( 70 ) " would have been about " 17 years old " ... and ... " Eliza ( 25 ) " had been his step-mother since he was about " 5 years old " ...

         And " Fred Updyke ( 71 ) " would have been about " 14 years old " ... and ... " Eliza ( 25 ) " had been his step-mother since he was about " 2 years old " ... so basically " Eliza ( 25 ) " was the mother that had raised them both .....

         " However " when " Arthur Updyke ( 70 ) " joined the army on January 5, 1918 due to " World War I " having started he had changed his last name to " Arthur Pickett " and that was the name he carried until he passed away .....

         And also due to " World War I " ... when " Fred Updyke ( 71 ) " joined the army on June 24, 1918 he had changed his last name to " Fred Pickett ( 70 ) " and that was the name he carried until he passed away .....

         In the 1920 Federal Census ( Recorded: January 10, 1920 ) " John " is still shown as owning his own restaurant on North Main Street in New Hope, Pennsylvania at the age of 75.   " Louisa " is noted as a 74 year old " Homemaker " but was also more than likely still helping in the restaurant as well.
         Also still living with them in 1920 were their step-grandson's :
         " Arthur Updyke Pickett ( 70 ) " and " Fred Updyke Pickett ( 71 ) ".

         " John S. Pickett ( 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 Jane Everitt Pickett " passed away on August 18, 1927 also at the age of 81 and was interred next to her husband on August 20, 1927.  Together they had " 4 " Children :

(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
on March 27, 1848 in New Hope, Pennsylvania.   He was married twice.


         He first married " Emma ????? " who was born in ca. 1855 in Pennsylvania.   It is unknown what happened to his 1st wife however she and " Joseph " were living with his father " Edward " on the " Homestead Lot " in the 1880 Federal Census.   The family story is that she died during childbirth along with the child .....

         " Joseph ", when he was 41 years old, was married second to " Emily Mary Terry " on February 4, 1890 in Vincentown, New Jersey years 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 " early life he was a " canal boatbuilder ", learning the trade from, and also working for his dad
" Edward ".   He is said to have lived with his dad until his dad passed away on October 12, 1888.

         In the late 1880's through the early 1890's, after the passing of his wife " Emma ", " Joseph " 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 and parks around the county until his marriage.

         After his second marriage and the settlement of his dad's estate he led a more stay-at-home life.   His brother's and sister's purchased home's and " Joseph " inherited some money, of an unknown amount, from their dad Edward's Estate.
( See Edward's estate settlement - " Click Here " ) .....

         Sadly ..... most of the " 1890 Federal Census " materials were destroyed in a 1921 fire and none of the information for the State's of New Jersey, Maryland, Pennsylvania or Delaware survived the fire.

         In the 1900 Federal Census ( Recorded: June 5, 1900 ) " Joseph " ~ ( Age 52 ) and " Emily " ~ ( Age 51 ) are shown residing in a rented home, the left side of a townhouse, and running a " Notion Store " in the front of this home on Mechanic Street next to the canal in New Hope.

         The store, with a home attached, ( as of 2024 ) is still in operation as another type of store.   It is " a known fact " that
" Joseph " painted a murial on the side of this home facing Main Street however time has sadly erased it or it was simply painted over.   This was believed to have been " Joseph's " first attempt at painting ....

         Between the 1900 and 1910 census " Joseph " ~ ( abt. the Age of 55 ) became a " Storekeeper ", on his own account, selling
" general merchandise and hardware " in a store on Bridge Street ~ ( still standing in 2024 ) that was also along the canal and about one block from his home on Mechanic Street.   The " Notion Store " that had been in the front of his home on Mechanics street was now their living room.

         It was in the back room of this store on Bridge Street that " Joseph ", at about the age of 55, started his paintings.   He first started painting, without ever having a lesson, using house paints mixed with sand and plywood wrapped with " Heavy Muslin " from his store's supplies.

         In the 1910 Federal Census ( Recorded: April 15, 1910 ) " Joseph " ~ ( Age 62 ) and " Emily " ~ ( Age 62 ) are still shown residing in the same rented home.   " Joseph " is noted as merchant working on his own account in his store on Bridge Street.   " Emily " is noted as a homekeeper.

         In 1918, prior to his passing, " Joseph " sent one of his paintings to the annual exhibition at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts and it received three jury votes, including a vote from the well known artist " Robert Henri ".

         Since " Joseph " passed away late in 1918 he was never able to send anymore of his paintings to exhibitions.   It wasn't until the 1930's that his work really began to receive general recognition.

( See the article from the book " The American Vision " ~ " Click Here " to read the story. )

      " Joseph's " 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 ", being 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 " and " Washington under the Council Tree ".   It is also " possible " that the work titled " Houses by a stream, Lambertville " is one of his paintings however I'd have to see the original to be sure ....

      Other paintings that have surfaced that are claimed to be his work include " Red House on the Hill ", " Houses by a stream Lambertville ", and " Sunset on the Lehigh Canal, New Hope ".   These two have not, as yet, been verified to the satisfaction of the author as " Joseph's " originals.

         " Joseph Pickett ( 9 ) " passed away on December 12, 1918 at the age of 70 years, 8 months, and 16 days 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, 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 " and Emily never had any children.

Joseph is noted in one book as " haunting " his old Mechanic Street home ...

Was born the 8th and last child and 4th daughter of
Edward Dunlap Pickett ( 2 ) and Catherine Conver Pickett
on September 14, 1851 in New Hope, Pennsylvania.
" Isabella " was married twice.


         She was first married to " John C. Holcombe " who was born in ca. 1838 in Pennsylvania the son of David and Mercy P. Holcombe.   They had two known children together.

         " John C. Holcombe " 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 " 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.

         " Great Sadness " engulfed this young family when " Matilda C. Holcombe ( 37 ) " passed away on September 16, 1870 at the age of 1 year, 2 months, and 27 days.   She was interred in the Mount Hope Cemetery, Lambertville, New Jersey.

         In the 1880 Federal Census ( Recorded: June 3, 1880 ) they are shown residing in a home on Mechanic Street, New Hope, Pennsylvania.   " Charles " is noted as being a 33 year old " Wood Turner " and " Isabella " is noted as a 28 year old
" Homemaker " raising " 4 " children :
         Joseph Holcombe ~ ( Age 9 )
         Addison Kitchin ~ ( Age 4 )
         Burleigh Kitchin ~ ( Age 3 )
         and W. Augustus Kitchin ~ ( Age 6 months )

         " Charles T. Kitchin " preceded his wife in passing away on November 23, 1887 at the age of 40 and was interred in Mt. Hope Cemetery, Lambertville, New Jersey near " Isabella's " first husband John.

         Sadly ..... most of the " 1890 Federal Census " materials were destroyed in a 1921 fire and none of the information for the State's of New Jersey, Maryland, Pennsylvania or Delaware survived the fire.

         " Great Sadness " again engulfed this family when " Burleigh J. Kitchin ( 41 ) " passed away on November 7, 1895 at the age of 18.   He was interred in the Mount Hope Cemetery, Lambertville, New Jersey.

         In the 1900 Federal Census ( Recorded: June 2, 1900 ) " Isabella " is noted as a 48 year old " Widow " residing in a home on South Main Street, New Hope, Bucks County, Pennsylvania.   She is noted in the census of being the mother of " 12 " children with only " 7 " currently surviving.   Two of those listed below that are not surviving are " Matilda C. Holcombe ( 37 ) " who passed away in 1870 and " Burleigh J. Kitchin ( 41 ) " who passed away in 1895 which would indicate that she had " 4 " other children whose names are unknown and possibly passed away at childbirth.
         Residing with " Isabella " in 1900 are " 3 " of her children and " 1 " grandchild :
         Eva Kitchin ~ ( Age 18 )
         Jessie Kitchin ~ ( Age 15 )
         Mabel Kitchin ~ ( Age 13 )
         and her grandson Elmer R. Slack ~ ( Age 6 months ) son of her daughter " Mary 'Eva' Kitchin Slack ( 43 ) ".

         In the 1910 Federal Census ( Recorded: April 15, 1910 ) " Isabella " is noted as a 58 year old " Widow " residing in a home that she " owned mortgage free " on South Main Street, New Hope, Bucks County, Pennsylvania.   Residing with " Isabella " in 1900 is
" 1 " of her children and " 1 " grandchild :
         Joseph Holcombe ~ ( Age 39 )
         and her grandson Elmer R. Slack ~ ( Age 10 ) son of her daughter " Mary 'Eva' Kitchin Slack ( 43 ) ".

         In the 1920 Federal Census ( Recorded: January 10, 1920 ) " Isabella " is noted as a 69 year old " Widow " residing with her son
" Joseph Dunlap Holcombe ( 38 ) " ~ ( Age 49 ) in his home that he " owned mortgage free " on North Main Street, New Hope, Bucks County, Pennsylvania.

         " Isabella Pickett Kitchin ( 10 ) " passed away on April 8, 1930 at the age of 78 and was interred by her second husband Charles.   " Isabella " had " 12 " children of which only the below " 8 " are known .....

Was born the 3rd child and the 2nd son of
" Jacob Dunlap Pickett ( 34 ) "
and
" Eleanor Minerva Smith Pickett "
on December 3, 1897
in New Hope, Pennsylvania.
( All below lettering in " Bright Blue " are clickable links ! )


        Due to World War I " John ", 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 of Chateau-Thierry ).

        " John's " unit then moved to Saint-Mihiel arriving on August 26, 1918 and participated in what was to be called the
" Battle of Saint-Mihiel " from September 12th until victory in that battle on September 15, 1918.

        " John's " unit then moved to Meuse-Argonne area arriving on September 22, 1918 and participated in what was to be called the " Meuse-Argonne Offensive " from September 26, 1918 until victory on November 11, 1918.

        " John " was then honorably discharged from the Army on July 16, 1919 and returned home to New Hope.   His name is inscribed on the New Hope " World War I Monument " ( See photo link below ) in downtown New Hope, Pennsylvania.

        He married " Winifred Ann Bacon " at 3:00 p.m. on June 24, 1920 in New Hope, Pennsylvania.   After their marriage they resided in a stone home on Mechanic Street, across from the old Town Hall & Jail in New Hope.   Winnie was born on May 27, 1897 in Buck Mountain, Pennsylvania the daughter of William Bacon and Anna Catherine Wittig Bacon.
( See the " Bacon Family History " by this author for more on that family )

        " John ", after the war and after his marriage, first worked as a " Freight Hand " on the Rail Road in New Hope.   Prior to 1940 his family moved to a home on South Main Street in New Hope.   Also in the early 1940's he became a " Bridge Guard " on the Lambertville-New Hope bridge on the Lambertville side of the bridge.

        He was also a member of the American Leagion Edgar H. Denson Post #79 in New Hope, The Loyal Order of the Moose in Lambertville, and the Doylestown Post #175 Veterans of Foreign Wars in Doylestown.

        They first showup as a family in the 1930 Federal Census ( recorded: April 9, 1930 ) residing in a home they were " renting " on Mechanic Street in New Hope, Pennsylvania.   " John " is noted as a 32 year old " Freight Hand " working on the " New Hope Railroad " and " Winnie " is noted as a 31 year old housekeeper raising their " 3 " children :
        Margaret ~ ( Age 8 )
        John E., Jr. ~ ( Age 5 )
        and Richard ~ ( Age 3 )

        The actual home that they were renting on Mechanic Street is no longer there due to the widening of South Main Street.   There were actually " 4 ", of what today we call townhouses, made with a stone exterior in a row on the corner of Mechanic Street and South Main Street in the 1930's and 1940's ..... The " 2 " of the stone homes out of the " 4 " closest to South Main Street were torn down for the street widening.

         The one on the corner of Mechanic and South Main Street, based on the Federal Census data and the memories of my
" Aunt Margaret ( 150 ) ", was occupied by " John " and his family and the one next to them, which was also torn down, was the home of his older brother " Asa Smith Pickett ( 91 ) " and his family.   The " 2 " that were torn down looked " exactly " like the
" 2 " that are on the corner today ( 2024 ) .....

        In the 1940 Federal Census ( recorded: April 3, 1940 ) they are shown residing on South Main Street in New Hope, Pennsylvania.
" John " is noted as a 42 year old " Transit Man " working on a " PA Survey Project " and Winnie is noted as a 41 year old housekeeper raising their " 3 " children :
        Margaret ~ ( Age 18 )
        John E. Jr. ~ ( Age 15 )
        and Richard ~ ( Age 13 ).

        " John ", who had not been feeling well since Saturday, September 16, 1944, had gone to see Dr. D. K. Lieby on Sunday the 17th.   The Doctor apparently did not know what was wrong with " John " and advised him to return home and rest.   He didn't stay home as advised by the doctor .....

        At mid-night on Sunday " John " reported to his job as a guard on the bridge.   At 5:30 a.m. Monday morning September 18, 1944 a passerby found " John " on Bridge Steet near the bridge in New Hope passed out and apparently trying to go home since he was not feeling well.

        Dr. Lieby was called and pronounced that " John Earnest Pickett, Sr. ( 92 ) ", at the age of 46 years, 9 months & 15 days, had died from a heart condition.   His funeral was held at his home at 2:00 on Friday, September 22, 1944 with Rev. Ellsworth L. Jennings pastor of the New Hope Methodist Church officating and he was interred at the Riverview Cemetery in Lambertville, New Jersey.

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

        " Winnie ", after her husband's passing, moved to Lambertville, New Jersey ca. October 1945, in a home across the street from her son " Richard ".   She later moved to a one bedroom apartment built for her over the garage of her daughter
" Margaret's " home in New Hope where she lived until moving with " Margaret " to Punta Gorda, Florida ca. 1974.

        " Winifred Ann 'Winnie' Bacon Pickett " passed away on October 18, 1984 at the age of 87.   She was interred in Punta Gorda, Florida, however, she has a headstone in the Riverview Cemetery in Lambertville, New Jersey along side of her husband.   Together they had " 3 " children :

" How Lawrence " Larry " Jay Gorrell ( 174 ) passed away : "

     My Aunt lived in a house that is close to where the current post office is located in New Hope, Pennsyvania.    Her kitchen table sat infront of a large picture window where she would sit in the evenings drinking coffee and watching the traffic coming down the hill to the west of her home.

      Her son " Larry " was serving in the Navy in 1972.   He got off his ship in San Francisco, California for a 30 leave.   He first thought about getting a plane ticket back home but decided to go across country by bus and also by hitching a ride when he could so that he could see more of the U.S. and he phoned his Mom to let her know.

     On the night of September 22, 1972 while sitting at her table she saw a car accident just after dark on the hill.   She called the accident into the police and reported that someone had run off the road and hit a telephone pole.   She watched as the fire trucks, ambulance, and tow truck came and walked down asking one of the firefighters there what had happened.   He told her that a man that was by himself had run off the road and hit the pole and he had hit and cut his head but would be alright.   She was relieved and went back home.

     About 3 hours later, and after getting ready for bed, she glanced out the window and she noticed another ambulance appear at about the same area and she wasn't sure why but watched until it left.   About two hours later she was woken up by a phone call telling her that her son " Larry " had been in a car wreck and that he was hurt and was at the hospital.   She went to the hospital and " Larry " died not long after mid-night from his injuries.

     As the night wore on she heard from the doctor that if it had not taken so long to get him to the hospital they may have been able to save him.   She asked the doctor what he meant and why did it take so long.   He stated that a man was in a car accident just west of New Hope and after he was brought to the hospital he asked, " How is the guy that was walking along the road that I hit? " .... The doctor, not knowing what he was talking about, requested that another ambulance go back to the scene to see what they could find.   They found " Lawrence 'Larry' Jay Gorrell ( 154 ) " about 30 foot away from where the car had hit him and the pole.

     " Margaret " was stunned .... she not only watched the accident but was within feet of her dying son .....

         A year after " Chris " passed away I met a man from " South Dakota " while attending a wedding in " Rochester, NY " that approached me and asked if I was " Chris' " dad ?   I of course told him yes .... then he told me that when he was down all he had to do was get online ... find " Chris " online ... and somehow " Chris " was always able to make him laugh and forget about his problems .....

         That was " Chris " ..... I was always so proud of the man that he was ..... " Chris " is missed by everyone who knew him ..... But no one misses him more than his " Dad " !

         " Christopher 'Chris' Scott Pickett ( 222 ) " went to be with his heavenly Father on April 4, 2021 while alone in his home in Baltimore, Maryland.   He was found by his Mom and Dad.
