Welcome! This site is dedicated to my ancestors and to all of their descendants. While my father was a Pickle (Pickel*) and my mother a Bartlett, we're all part of many other families. Through family research I've met many "cousins" with whom I've shared information.
In particular, this site is focused on the lines descended from the following men of documented ancestry:
Pickle: William Pickle, 1776-1866, Anderson Co., South Carolina
Bartlett: Nicholas Bartlett, b. 1642, Normandy (France); d. c. 1690, Kent Co. Maryland
Brown: Francis Marion Brown, b. 1833, St. Clair Co. Alabama, d. 1900, Henderson Co. Texas
Broyles: Johannes (Breyel/Breuel) , b. 1679, Dußlingen, Baden-Württemberg, Germany , d. 1733, Spotsylvania, Virginia
Holland: John Holland, b. 1766, Prince George County, Virginia , d. 1842, Sumter County, Alabama
Ingram: David Ingram, b. <1775 Ireland, d. 1828, Wilkinson Co. Georgia
|Robert Hugh, Jr. & Theretta Lena Bartlett Pickel (1937)|
* Throughout the history of my family, the spelling of the last name has been, shall we say, "flexible" as far back as the 18th Century, with records of each generation found where both Pickle and Pickel spelling was used. My own grandfather and most of our cousins spelled the name "Pickle," but my father always spelled his last name "Pickel." Yet even on my parents marriage license the name was spelled "Pickle."
