      The earliest known member of my Pickett family is my G-G-G Grandfather "Edward D. Pickett" who was born in 1807 somewhere in New Jersey.   Efforts to establish who his parents were have been futile up to this point.

      Either after his marriage to "Catherine Conover" or at an earlier age with his parents, they settled in the New Hope, PA. area where "Edward" was noted as a Shipwright.

      Since "Edward's" time some members of the family, such as my father, have moved to other places.   However, until my father's move in 1948 to Odessa, Delaware, the family basically remained in the New Hope, PA area where many family members still reside.

      For ease of identification each family member has a number that is referenced through this entire document.   That is, "Edward" is number 1 and my number is 93.   An " * " after the family member's number denotes that I have further information about them displayed later in this document.   The family member's whose names are shown in "Marroon" letters are my direct ancestors and other family members names are shown in "Dark Blue" and "Purple".   Links to other documents, when necessary, are shown in "Bright Blue".

      The most celebrated member of my family is "Joesph Pickett" (8) whose painting are hanging in the New York City museum of Art and the Camden, New Jersey museum of Art.   And have some of his paintings displayed as part of this document and hopefully I'll be able to display more at a later date.

      Within this document I use the "Find A Grave" website which links to where each family member who has passed away is interred and shows their individual online memorial.   If you'd like to access the "Find A Grave" site to learn more about this project and build memorials for your loved ones please click below:

      Anyone that has information or questions on this family line please "e-mail me".   Thanks, and I hope you enjoy this short history of my Pickett Family.
