Anne Pickens was a daughter of Andrew Pickens and Rebecca Calhoun Pickens.
Rev Eron M Sharp published in 1963 a book named "Pickens Families of the South". The book states that Anne Pickens was born April 12, 1770 and died March 30, 1846. He did extensive research on these families. The date on the tombstone appears to read March 20, 1846.
