Karen Price, our association genealogist, is putting the finishing touches on a major project – the transcription of the Bounty Land Warrant Application of Charles Pidcock, an ancient legal document that contains great details of his service in the New Jersey Militia during the American Revolutionary War.
Association president John L. Moore welcomes suggestions for reunion activities. Please send them to email@example.com
Moore, who is also our family historian, will also report on the Civil War service of Jason Baker Pidcock, a great-great-grandson of Jonathan Pidcock who served in the Union Army. The soldier was 20 when he was killed on May 9, 1864, during the Battle of Cloyd’s Mountain in southwestern Virginia.
Alan Pidcock visited Cloyd’s Mountain on his way home after the 2016 reunion. John Moore stopped there last September.
Ironically, Jason died only a few days after his distant cousin, Anderson Pidcock, a Union soldier in a New Jersey regiment, was killed in action during the Battle of the Wilderness near Fredericksburg, Virginia.
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 that 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’s email address is: firstname.lastname@example.org.
