Fifth Generation


43. Minor/Minard/Myndart PICKEL1,8 was born on 6 July 1787 in Lebanon Township, Hunterdon County, New Jersey.1 He was christened on 17 March 1788 in Oldwick, Hunterdon County, New Jersey.1 He died before 1850 at the age of 63 in Schuyler County, Illinois.1

Baptism witnesses were the child's parents; Abraham and wife Peggi.

I believe Minard and Barbara were first cousins, based on World Connect data. Minister said to be Lenaham.

The 1826 Chattell Tax for Perry Twp, Franklin Co, Ohio, lists Minor Pickle. [Also Stephen Avery]

In 1830, Minard Pickle was in Perry Twp, Franklin Co, Ohio. He was listed as age 40-50 with 1 male 15-20 and one under 5 - the females weren't transcribed. He was 43. I believe the male under 5 was Isaac and he may also have had an older son, the one 15-20 born between Margaret and Anna.
He was next door to Benjamin West who had married Anne Avery, a daughter of Daniel Avery.

Later deeds listed will show that Minor Pickle was in Schuyler Co before June of 1836,

In 1840, Minor Pickle is listed in Precinct #2 of Schuyler Co Illinois. 1m 50-60 [Minard], 1m 10-15 [Isaac], 1m 20-30 [possible older son as above], 1f 50-60 [Barbara] and 1f 10-15 [Betsey].

Served on a Petit Jury, March 1840 and was paid $4.50 for six days.

Minor Pickle is listed in the Illinois Public Domain Land Tract Sales with a total of 280 acres in Schuyler Co. The following tracts issued to Minor, Isaac, and Elizabeth Pickle add up to 279 acres.

[Note: This tract was issued to Isaac Pickle, 1 Oct 1845]

Land Patents, Bureau of Land Management.
3 Nov 1840 to Minor Pickle:
80 acres. SW 1/4 of the SE 1/4, Section 25, Twp 2N, Range 3W and the NW 1/4 of the SW 1/4 of Section 36, also in Twp 2N, Range 3W.
80 acres, the W 1/2 of the SW 1/4, Section 26, Twp 2N, Range 3W.
The Index to Government Lands, LDS Microfilm #1311517, Item #1 has slightly different dates. The 80 acres in Section 36 is shown as being that of Minor Pickle, 10 May 1836 and the 80 acres in Section 26 was dated 12 Mar 1839.
Also in Section 26, T2N, R3W was 40 acres, the SW 1/4 of the SW quarter, 4 May 1836.

The lands in Section 36 - the 80 acres, which was the North half of the Northeast quarter, is interesting, because Stephen Avery owned the south half of the Northeast quarter - both received their patents in November of 1840.

On the same date, 3 Nov 1840, to Elizabeth Pickle, apparently his daughter:
80 acres. The NE 1/4 of the SW 1/4, Section 25, and the NW 1/4 of the SE 1/4, Section 25, both in Twp 2N, Range 3W.
The Index to Government Lands, LDS Microfilm #1311517, Item #1 has slightly different dates Elizabeth Pickle's 80 acres - Nov 24, 1838

Minor/Minard/Myndart PICKEL and BARBARA MELLICK FARLEY were married on 15 December 1807 in Hunterdon County, New Jersey.1,9 BARBARA MELLICK FARLEY, daughter of ISAAC FARLEY and ANNETJE "Anna' MELICK, was born about 1788 in Hunterdon County, New Jersey.1

Found in WorldConnect file:
Hunterdon Co. New Jersey Deeds, Special Deeds vol. 2. page 22 Barbara
Pickle, wife of Minor Pickle of Franklin Co, State of Ohio, for $1.00 of
Baltus A. Pickle, quit claim, to 120 acres in Readington, Hunterdon Co.
conveyed by my husband, Minor Pickle to Baltus A. Pickle, March 2, 1816,
Dated Nov. 29, 1828. City of Columbus, Ohio Recorded in 1828

Barbara was living with her daughter, Margaret Pickle Avery, in 1850.

Minor/Minard/Myndart PICKEL and BARBARA MELLICK FARLEY had the following children:

+45

i.

MARGARET PICKLE.

46

ii.

[Son] PICKEL was born (date unknown).

An older male is found in both the 1830 and 1840 Censuses. I think he is not Isaac - see notes for Isaac.

+47

iii.

Anna PICKEL.

+48

iv.

Mary PICKEL.

49

v.

Isaac PICKLE1,10,11,12 was born in 1823 in Ohio.11 He died on 31 August 1906 at the age of 83 in Schuyler County, Illinois.11

Isaac is a bit of a puzzle. The records of Marietta Pickell give birth and place as 1810, Hunterdon Co, NJ. However, in Schuyler Co IL in 1860, there is an Isaac Pickle living in the household of Philo Avery, son of Margaret Pickle Avery - age 25 and born in Ohio. Isaac appears in 1870, living with Eliza Avery Irwin, a daughter of Margaret Pickle Avery - age 40, but born in Ohio. He was still with the Irwin's in 1880, age 50, b. Ohio, parents b. NJ.

I believe he is not the son in the earliest censuses, but is one of the younger children. He apparently had a mental disability.
