Homepage for Pilcher Ancestry and Descendants


Welcome! This page is a group effort of data provided by Pilcher researchers to help each other. We are all out there looking at different documents and in different places the more we collaborate the faster the work can progress.  Each of us may come across a Pilcher in an unlikely place where his/her descendants would never find him/her.  If we pool our information it can only help.  And anything you find will be one more clue or one less place someone else has to look.  

I am updating the page as time permits check back often to watch us grow.

Updates and notes: Kent Pilcher passed away on Nov 16, 2002 of apparent heart disease. His brother Rod Pilcher of Arvada, CO will attempt to keep the website up and running.

***Ed Godbold has new information to refute Mary Lindsay Elizabeth Rivers Lindsey as the wife of Reese Pilcher.  Any cousins in this line should contact him if they have questions about this.  It has been changed on the William Pilcher page to Mary Lindsey at his request. ***

Information needed:

Documentation of John Bernard Pilcher and how he ties to William Pilcher III. If John is the same JB Pilcher of Catahoula Parish LA 1860 and if the 13 year old John with him is Red River John Randolph Pilcher and if the father of Red River John is Wilson Pilcher --- I can tie my James Reason Pilcher to William Pilcher III.

Anything on a Mary Ann Pilcher, also known as Hope, who married a Fatheree in Louisiana.


Lewis Pilcher of Pontotoc, MS whose will was probated April 1854 b GA and all children on the 1850 census are born GA. Is this the brother of William Pilcher III of Sumter Co GA.

Linson, Wilson, Ransom and John Pilcher sons of William Pilcher III appear in land and court documents of Henry Co, AL in the early 1850s. John moved on to Louisiana and then Texas. I have not been able to locate Linson, Wilson or Ransom. Where did they go?


Send me your mysteries and I will put them here.
