Pickens Genealogy

Welcome to a Pickens Family Home Page! The cousins supporting this page are interested in researching and sharing information about the children of Robert and Esther Pickens.

A brief note on the Pickens family:
From General Andrew Pickens letter to General Lee in 1811,

"There seems to be some support for the claim that one ROBERT PICON, a Scotchman or Briton at the court of France was a Protestant who fled from Scotland in 1661 to avoid persecution of Charles II. In France he is said to have married Madam Jean Bonneau, also a Protestant. They fled France after the revocation of the Edict of Nantes by Louis XIV in 1685. Tradition continues that they went to Scotland, later to North Ireland." _Pickens Families of the South_ by E. M. Sharp, 1963
