104th Reunion August 6th 2016

2016 Pidcock Reunion

The Pidcock Family Association will hold its 2016 reunion at Washington Crossing Historic
Park on Saturday, August 6.

“The reunion will begin at 12 noon, with a group photo at 12:45 and a picnic lunch beginning at
1 p.m.,” said John Moore, association president.  The family association will provide hamburgers and hot dogs. Association members should
bring a covered dish to share.

The reunion will be in the General Sullivan Pavilion along Pidcock Creek, which is named for
the first Pidcock who settled in present-day Bucks County. “Historians have documented that John
Pidcock took up residence in an Indian village on this site, perhaps as early as 1678,” Moore said.
Historian Peter Osborne will speak about his book, “No Spot In This Far Land Is More
Immortalized: A History of Washington Crossing Historic Park,” which Yardley Press published in

Craig A. Reading, historian of the First Presbyterian Church of Lambertville, will tell about the
memorial stone that the church dedicated recently to honor the Revolutionary War service of 26 men
with ties to the church. The soldiers include two Pidcocks: Jonathan (1729-1812) and his son
Charles (1756-1836). Craig, incidentally, is a Pidcock descendant.

Association genealogist Karen Pidcock Price will report on her ongoing effort to update the
association’s genealogical data base. Karen encourages Pidcock descendants to bring written or
electronic information about their families to the reunion.

John Moore, the association historian, will report on his recent visits to the Chancellorsville and
Wilderness battlefields in Virginia. Anderson Pidcock, a Union soldier from Lambertville, was
seriously wounded at Chancellorsville in 1863 and killed in action during fighting in The Wilderness in

The association first published a genealogy report in the 1950s and revised edition in 1992.
Another revision of the family genealogy report was published in 2013, and copies of the 2013 edition
will be available at the reunion. Also available will be copies of the 2013 publication, “The Pidcock

Our association, which held its centennial reunion in 2013, was organized in 1913. Members
trace their descent from Jonathan Pidcock (1729-1812). He is believed to have been a grandson of
John Pidcock.
