Pickerell Family


1. Levi Pickerell, Sr. was born about 1782, and died about 1852 (1). He married Susannah Rosannah Hitt on 12 January 1809, a daughter of John Hitt and Sarah Day - Pace. She was born 2 April 1790 in Fauquier Co., Virginia.

Notes for Levi Pickerell, Sr. and Susannah Rosannah Hitt:

There is a question on whether or not the census of 1810 is the right Levi Pickerell as he married in 1809 in Fauquier Co., VA and Prince George is a fare distance away from that county. other places to look would be Loudoun Co., VA and Culpepper Co., VA for possible links to him. There is a Richard Pickroll in Fauquier Co., VA in 1799 tax lists perhaps a link to him.

Obituary: Gazette 12 February. 1954

"C.W.Pickrell, 44, Of Dumbar. Dies

Claude Wilber Pickrell, 44, of 215 West Virginia Ave., Dunbar, died unexpectedly at his home while he was preparing to leave for work at the Dunbar Fire Department.
He was born in Wirt County and came to Dunbar in 1940 from Parkersburg. He was a member of Church of Christ.
An active fireman, Mr. Pickrell helped build fire trucks for several small fire departments in West Virginia.
Surviving are his wife, Mrs. Ilia May Pickrell; mother, Mrs. Cora Pickrell of Dunbar, one daughter, Miss Jean Pickrell at home; one son, Ronald Pickrell at home and one brother, Clarence Pickrell of Walker.
The body is at Keller mortuary in Dunbar.

Information from Ilia Mae Odell Pickrell:

[after there marriage] We lived with the Pickrells until 8 months after our son Ronald was born. (Sept. 12, 1933). We moved to Cabin Run and lived there for about 2 years then moved back with Pickrells and stayed another year. Then Claude and I moved to Parkersburg leaving Ronald with the Pickrells. Claude got work at the Shovel Plant but only worked there around 6 months. He then got work at the Visco Plant. I went to work for the Shoe Factory. Claude worked at Visco Plant about 2 years then they transferred him to the Visco Plant in Nitro WV So on Dec 26, 1939 Claude moved in with friends who had been transferred too and was there about a month before he found us furnished rooms in Dunbar. He drove about 10 miles to work and worked there about 3 years until the doctor told him to get off shift work. He then went to work for the Rubber Plant in Institute WV. He worked there about a year then got on at the Fire Department in Dunbar. He worked there 11 years until his death on Feb. 11, 1954.

Claude invented a board that had streets numbered and there was a light on it so that when a call came in the fireman that took the call would turn on the light where the fire was and when the other firemen would come in they would run to the board to see where the fire was.

Note: After they were married Ilia did not work until Claude got layed off at the Visco Plant at Parkersburg. Claude had a pick up truck and he did odd jobs but it was not enough to keep them so Ilia went to work for Grocerman Shoe Factory. She worked there the two years he was layed off. Then Visco transferred him to the Nitro plant. She gave up her job and moved to Dunbar in Jan 1940 where they got furnished rooms. She did not work any more until after Claude's death in 1954. Then after the social security stopped when Jean was 18 she went to work as a school crossing guard in Dunbar. That was in 1960. She was hired by the mayor but worked under the Police Department for the next 18 years. (Ilia Mae Pickrell). She retired March 2003.
