The Pickles of Monroe County, Mississippi

Henry Pickle came to Monroe County, Mississippi, the latter part of 1836. His brothers Robert, Greenberry and their father Jacob had all made their homes here also by then.

During the 1820's and 1830's they had all lived in Fayette County, Alabama, where some of their brothers and sisters were born but these brothers were born in North Carolina.

Their father, Jacob, was born around 1766 in North Carolina and died around 1853 in Attala County, Mississippi. Henry and his father both bought land in Range 16W and Township 13S. Henry Pickle owned at least 200 acres in the southwest 1/4 of Section 16 and the southeast 1/4 of the northeast 1/4 of Section 17 of Township 13, Range 16 West in Monroe County, Mississippi. This tract of land was sold to Willis Calvin (W. C.) Blaylock on December 10, 1887 for the total sum of seventy dollars and twenty-five cents.

Other members of the Pickle family also bought land in this general area, between Greenwood Springs, Splunge and the Alabama State line, in the Sipsey Fork area. Their main occupation was farming. Henry Pickle, Greenberry Pickle, Robert Pickle, Rigdon Irvin, Johnnie Ray, Joe Ramsy, Richardson Ray and David Ray all came to Monroe County, Mississippi from Charleston County, South Carolina.
