James R. Pickett

Son of F. G. and Sallie Pickett. Born in Ballard (now Carlisle) county, Ky., June 7, 1856. Died in Lawrence county, Ark., May 2, 1897. Aged 40 years, 10 months and 25 days. Bro. Picket had been a member of Pleasant Grove Baptist church for more than twenty years. He was one of those everyday Christians whose influence was felt by all who knew him. He leaves a wife, several children and other relatives and friends to mourn their loss. His funeral sermon was preached by this writer, his pastor, at Pleasant Grove church, where a large congregation had gathered to pay the last tribute of respect to his memory.
