From "Historical Papers and Addresses of the Lancaster County Historical Society" By Lancaster County Historical Society (Pa.) Published 1921, pg. 154:
(The family of) John, William and Andrew Pickens, natives of Ulster, Ireland, settled in Lancaster County, Pa, prior to 1739. They removed to Augusta County, Virginia, prior to 1745, and Andrew and William Pickens were members of the first County Court in Augusta, which sat for the first time on December 9, 1745. William Pickens married Jane Scott, daughter of Sam who lived on Cub Run, in the present county of Rockingham, and the writer has no further information concerning him or his descendants. General Andrew Pickens (brother of William), was born in Paxtang township, Lancaster County, Pa., September 19, 1739. He was the son of either John or Andrew Pickens named above, and it is believed to be the latter. He removed to the Waxhaw settlement in South Carolina.
