Day: pg 267 "(NOTE:-It is said that the father of Andrew Martin Pickens was captured by the Indians and burned at the stake, and that he was a brother of General Andrew Pickens. Family traditions say that Captain Joseph Pickens, brother of General Andrew Pickens was captured by the British, turned over to the Indians and burned at the stake. A field book of Revolutionary Officers in the Colonial Army gives the date of the killing of Captain Joseph Pickens and June 1781, at Ninety Six, S.C. Traditions also tell us that John Pickens and James Pickens, both brothers of Captain Joseph Pickens, were lost at Ninety Six during the Revolutionary War. History also shows that Andrew Pickens, the father of Captain Joseph Pickens was appointed to appraise lands for a Mr. Andrew Martin in Augusta County, Virginia, March 2nd, 1749.) This is where family tradition and facts clash. Joseph was indeed killed as a result of Indian fire, John was captured and taken to Geogia were he was put to death by fire at the stake. Nothing is known about James wheather he was captured or killed, still remains a mystery.jcp1997 ID Number: 11263
