Our association genealogist, Karen L. Price, reports she is making progress on the 2016 Addendum to the Pidcock Family Association genealogical report, which the family association published in 2013.
Karen asks the association members “do their utmost best to send me ALL family updates by the 15th of May. I will guarantee inclusion in our newest Addendum by that date. ALWAYS, I will accept updates at any point in time, and I will do my best to include them no matter when they come in.”
Karen is transcribing Charles Pidcock’s Revolutionary War Bounty Land Warrant papers. Written long before the invention of typewriters, these documents were written by hand in the ornate style and script of two centuries ago, and can be difficult to decipher. “I’m looking forward to completion by the first of June, if not a month or so sooner,” she says.
Lambertville church to dedicate memorial to Revolutionary War veterans
On Sunday, May 29, the Lambertville Presbyterian Church, which is celebrating the 200th anniversary of its founding in 1816, will dedicate a Memorial Stone honoring the Revolutionary War service of 26 men with ties to the church. The veterans include two Pidcocks who were father and son – Jonathan (1729-1812) and Charles (1756-1836). Incidentally, one of the founders of the church was Jonathan Pidcock (1783-1861). Jonathan was the son of Charles and grandson of Jonathan.
The dedication and the unveiling will follow the 10:30 a.m. worship. Craig A. Reading, the church historian, is also a Pidcock descendant. He advises that members of the extended Pidcock family are welcome to attend.
