Tombstone Tuesday - Martha Eccles Pickett

Martha Jane Eccles Pickett, my great great grandmother

Born May 24, 1826, in North Carolina
Died January 11, 1893, in Richmond, Indiana


  1. Just curious, do any of your Picketts/Piggotts come from Carteret or Craven Counties? Where in North Carolina was your great great grandmother born?

    1. I am not sure where she was born. Her family lived in Guilford County. They left there and went to Ohio when she was young and then to Indiana. My group were all Quakers. My great grandfather Benjamin Pickett (Piggott) was born in Indiana, but his father came from North Carolina, too. I believe they were either in or near Guilford, too.
