         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 "



           Edward Dunlap Pickett ( 2 ) was born in Pelesgrove Township, Salem County, New Jersey the son of William Pickett ( 1 ) 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, and 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 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 ( 2 ) 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 ( 2 ) soon became one of the most successful canal boat builders in the area.

           In the 1850 census ( recorded October 1, 1850 ) Edward ( 2 ) 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 ( 2 ) 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 ( age 20 ) ~ William ( age 17 ~ noted as a Ship Wright ) ~ Mary Ann ( age 15 ) ~ Sarah ( age 13 ) ~ Jacob ( age 9 ) ~ John ( age 7 ) and Joseph ( age 2 ).

           In the 1860 census ( recorded July 9, 1860 ) Edward ( 2 ) 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 ( age 19 and noted as a boat builder ) ~ John ( age 16 ) ~ Joseph ( age 12 ) and Isabella ( age 7 ).

           Prior to the 1860 census Elizabeth ( 3 ) had married " Theophilus Stout " on May 6, 1852 and moved out on her own and William ( 4 ) married " Phoebe Maria Kitchen " on March 7, 1854 and also moved out on his own.

           In the 1870 census ( recorded July 7, 1870 ) Edward ( 2 ) 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, Pa.   Residing with them are " 2 " of their children:  Sarah ( age 32 ) and Joseph ( age 21 ~ noted as a carpenter ).

           Prior to the 1870 census Mary Ann ( 5 ) had married " William Allen Dobbins " in 1870 prior to the July census and moved out on her own.   Jacob ( 7 ) married " Clarissa H. Saxton " and also moved out on his own however he was still working with his dad Edward ( 2 ) as a " Carpenter ".   John ( 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 ( 2 ) as a " Ship Builder ".   And Isabella ( 10 ) married " John C. Holcombe " in 1868 and also moved out on her own.

           In the 1880 census ( recorded June 3, 1880 ) Edward ( 2 ) age 73 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.   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 ).

           During Edward's (2) 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:

  3.  Elizabeth Dunlap Pickett  ~  b. November 8, 1830  ~  d. March 9, 1902 ~ " Age 71 years, 4 months, 1 days "

      Louisa, however 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 1900 census ( recorded June 4, 1900 ) John ( 8 ) 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 ".   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 census ( recorded April 15, 1910 ) 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 their step-grandson's Arthur Updyke ( 70 ) and Fred Updyke ( 71 ) who possibly moved in with them when their daughter Elizabeth ( 33 ) passed away in 1903.

      In the 1920 census ( recorded January 10, 1920 ) 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 step-grandson's Arthur Updyke ( 70 ) and Fred Updyke ( 71 ).

      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 27, 1848 in New Hope, Pennsylvania.   He was born in New Hope based on the census of 1850.   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 ( 9 ) were living with his father Edward ( 2 ) in the 1880 federal census.   The family story is that she died during childbirth along with the child.

         Joseph ( 9 ), 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 working for his dad Edward D. Pickett.   He resided on South Main Street according to the Census of 1880, with his dad Edward and his 1st wife " Emma ".   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 census " materials were destroyed in a 1921 fire and none of the information for the State's of New Jersey, Maryland 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 2020 ) 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 2020 ) 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 ( 9 ) 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 " for more on the above )

      " 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 ", 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 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 " 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 ...

      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.

( 174 ) ~ Lawrence was killed when a car left the road and hit him while he walking on the shoulder.  He was in full time Navy service at the time.  A photo of him with his brother John (173) is shown as part of John's (173) record.

" How Lawrence ( Larry ) Jay Gorrell ( 174 ) died : "

     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 ( 154 ) 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 ( 154 ) had been in a car wreck and that he was hurt and was at the hospital.   She went to the hospital and Larry ( 154 ) 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 Larry ( 154 ) about 30 foot away from where the car had hit him and the pole.   Margaret (100) was stunned .... she not only watched the accident but was within feet of her dying son .....
