This is Annie Lou Bell Daughter of Edwin A. Bell & Elizabeth Ava Hicks, Lizzie was the daughter of William (Buck) Hicks and Frances Anderson from the Braswell Mt. between Dallas and Rockmart GA. Edwin was from Rome GA, the son of Issac Tant Bell & Elizabeth Rollins/Rowlins Bell and GS of Thompson Bell and Elizabeth Tant from August GA and Floyd Co GA. If anyone knows anything about Thompson I would like to hear from you.
Mattie was Dau or Gd of Oliver Washington Pickett & Sarah Wills from Paulding Co GA.
Oliver was the son of Malachia Pickett and Mary Wesson or James Charles from Dallas, Paulding Co GA. Are the brother of James C Pickett & Elizabeth Brintle, Benjamin William Pickett & Martha C Fannin ,Malachi T Pickett & Margaret M Lewis, will have to look up other bro or sisters.
This is a memorial for Benjamin W Pickett who was married to Martha Caroline Fannin in Paulding Co GA married in 1850. No one knows where Ben is really buried, my Dad said that it is on Due West Road now close to hwy 92 and someone built a brick ranch house back in 50's over the cemetery.
Malachi and Benjamin owned the land where the Pickett's Mill Battlefield State Historic site is.
Martha Fannin and Benjamin had children in the Paulding Co Heritage book the fannin family wrote that their children were Benjamin Pickett Jr, Malachi, Lorman, William and Mary Ann.
On the Pickett's Mill Web site it says that his children were Malachi 12, Billy 7, Louisa 9, and Mary 3. And by a previous marriage he had three children William G 4, Malachi 9, Louisa 6 and she had just given birth to a girl when Ben was killed at Chickamauga in 1863. So this information is not in agreement.
I think the Pickett Mill information is mostly incorrect as the census says otherwise.And I think that Martha and Ben had been married 10 years and he had never been married before.
Martha then married Ison Sheffield and Andy Highsaw. I do not know what happened to Martha and Ben's children I found where Malachi married a Margaret Russon in Paulding Co GA. I think there was a son Lorman and he died as child.
On the 1860 Paulding Co Census it says Benjamin W Pickett 32 SC, Martha Caroline (Fanny) Fannin Pickett 25 GA, Mal 9 GA, Louisa 6 GA, Wm G 4 GA, Mary 4/12 GA. This is probably correct.
In census 1920 in Burnt Hickory Dist 4D found that Martha C Highsaw Head of household, F W farmer age 87 widow
This is Benjamin Franklin Pickett and wife Sarah F Poole. Children:
Harold, Annie, Mary, Benjamin Jr, Flora and Poole (1906).
Someone had this at our GA Pickett reunion. I have found that malachi Pickett son Malachi Thomas had a son named Benjamin F pickett.
Also on church of jesus christ of latter day saints I have found a Ben Javier F. Pickett who married a Sallie A. Poole on 19 Jun 1895 in Douglas Co GA, Douglasville.
This was in 1928, I think this could be the gson of Malachi T Pickett who is the son of Malachi Sr. From Dallas GA, He and his son Benjamin W. owned Land where Pickett Mill Battlefield is now. Benjamin F. Pickett was married to Sallie A Poole they married 19 Jun 1895 in Douglas Ga, Douglasville. He is the one in the suit I believe he was the supertendant, This would be in Newnan GA. Malachi Thomas Pickett moved to Atlanta (Decatur)Ga after the Civil War.
