Bio and Links
Bio Photo My last name is Pickett.....the e was added by my dad when he was orphaned at the age of 10. His mothers family took him in. As a NC boy growing up and knowing that my Pickett line was from VA I grew very curious about the possiblility of being kin to Gen. George Pickett...also from VA. In 1980 I was assigned the task of researching my family history by my history professor at ECU Dr. Herb Pascal. I have been working on this history as well as many other family lines since that day. By the kinship to General George has never been proven. It is certainly 4 or more times removed if it even exists.

I have taken tombstone and footstone pictures of my family lines for years and only recently learned of this great web site and service. I hope to get pretty good at this and fill as many requests for pictures as I possibly can.

Thanks for finding Ferdie Beavans' photo! I think we have nearly all the family 'in place' now.

RE: Joseph and Mary Booth
The couple I'm stuck on are Joseph Thomas Boothe (the grandfather of the gentleman whose headstone you took a photo of for me) and his wife, Nancy Nelms Boothe Brown (she remarried William Brown). The only information I have on them is as follows: Joseph Thomas Boothe and Nancy Nelms took out a marriage bond in Louisburg, Franklin County, NC in December of 1850. They had four children between 1850 and 1860: William Henry Boothe, John Joseph Boothe, Elias E. Boothe, and James Gray Booth (he dropped the e). By 1860 Joseph Thomas Boothe is not listed in the census with Nancy and the boys. This census says she's 35 so that means she would have been born about 1825. In 1870 one boy is unaccounted for, one is married, and two are working as farm laborers with unrelated families, despite the fact that James Gray Booth was only twelve to fourteen at the time. Nancy Nelms remarried William Brown circa 1865. That's when they took out the marriage bond, anyways, but they aren't listed as living together in the 1870 census. Maybe someone will see this and know something! :)

RE: Joseph and Mary Booth
They are actually family of mine, and they are on my toughest line. I've had a lot of trouble with Joseph Booth's grandfather. He's one of my brick walls. I can't go back past 1860 in this line, so it means a lot to get as much info as I can on the more recent Booths. :)

If I have any of your kin, I can transfer the memorial to you...
