Robert Pickle, second child of Jacob Pickle

Robert Pickle

Robert was born in 1805 in North Carolina and he died on 24 Jul 1881 in Monroe County, Mississippi. Robert was the second child of Jacob and Catherine Pickle. He married Sarah Aldridge on September 21, 1824 in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. Sarah died September 6, 1888. Robert and Sarah are buried in the Bobby Pickle Cemetery in Monroe, County, Mississippi. They are marked by sandstone markers and for as long as I can remember somebody from my family put plastic flowers on their grave.

The following list of children was found in the Family Bible of Jacob Pickle.
I have unconfirmed reports that Robert and Sarah may have had another child. Janice Craft has reported that there was another boy named Joseph Pickle. He appears in the 1870 Monroe Census, but not the 1850 Census. She believes that Joseph was born in Mississippi in 1849. That would put him between Jerome and Wesley T. Pickle. However, he is not recorded in Jacob Pickle's bible records.
