      Edward (1) was employed as a Ship Builder.   According to his estate settlement he owned his own Boat Yard Lot in New Hope.   His buiness must have been profitable since he not only owned his own Boat Yard (which comprised three separate lots) but also four houses and three other lots.

      Joseph, (8) was born the 7th child & the 4th son of Edward Dunlap (1) and Catherine Conver Pickett in March, 1848.   He was born in New Hope based on the census of 1850.   He was married twice.   He first married "Ema _____" who was born in ca. 1855.   It is unknown what happened to his 1st wife however she and Joseph (8) were living with his father Edward (1) in 1880.   He later married 2nd to "Emily Mary Terry" on February 4, 1890 in Vincentown, NJ.    Emily was born the dau of Walter W. & Sara Jane (Flood) Terry in January or early February, 1848.

      During Joseph's (8) early life he was a canal "boatbuilder", learning the trade of carpentry from his father.   He resided on Main Street according to the Census of 1880, with his father Edward (1) and his 1st wife Ema.   He probably lived with his father until his father's death in 1888.   He later became a "Storekeeper" or merchant in a store on Bridge Street that was along the canal, in a building still standing (2005).   He moved to a house, also on the canal on Mechanic Street which is also still standing, & serves as a store (2005).   Joseph is said to haunt that house to this day.  ( "See Appendix B" - click here )

      While running his store on Bridge Street, Joe (8) started, without ever having a lesson, to paint landscapes.   It is believed that he started painting in his late 50's or early 60's.   Joe's (8) paintings are basically in the style used by Grandma Moses, that is, most things painted were simplistic & out of scale, however they were rich with colors.

      Joseph's (8) paintings now hang in the New York Museum of Modern Art in New York City, & the Newark Museum in Newark, NJ.   His most famous painting is that of "Manchester Valley"  ( "See Appendix B" - click here )  which is a painting of the old New Hope High School.   During 1990, it was brought to my attention that a "study" of this painting was being sold by an art gallery in New York City.   I believe that Joseph (8), an untrained artist, would have never made a study & therefore feel this to be a fake.   The selling price was over $100,000.00.   The titles of the other paintings that the author is sure are his works include "Coryell's Ferry" & "Washington under the Council Tree".

      Other paintings that have surfaced that are claimed to be his work include "Red House on the Hill" & "Sunset on the Lehigh Canal, New Hope".   These two have not, as yet, been verified to the satisfaction of the author as Joe Pickett (8) originals.

      In the 1890's, Joe (8) ran a "shooting gallery" at the Neshaminy Falls Grove, then a well known amusement park, on the Neshaminy, just a few miles above Hulmeville.   It is believed that this is where he met his wife, Emily.   He was also known to often run concession stands at multiple fairs & parks around the county until his marriage.   After his marriage, he led a more stay-at-home life.

      Joseph (8) inherited some money of an unknown amount from his father Edward's (1) Estate.  ( see Edward's (1) estate settlement - "click here" )  Joseph Pickett (8) died on December 12, 1918 at the age of 70.  His funeral was held in New Hope, with interment in the Hulmeville Cemetery in Hulmeville, Pa.   His wife, Emily, died in 1929 at the age of 81 & is interred next to her husband.   They also have a footstone on their grave. There is no known photograph of Joseph, however he & his brother "John S. Pickett" (7) were said to look just like twins.   A photo of "John" (7) is shown above.   Joseph & Emily never had any children.

      Isabella, (9) was born the 8th & last child & 4th dau of Edward Dunlap (1) and Catherine Conver Pickett on September 14, 1851.   She appears to have been born in New Hope based on the census of 1860.   Isabella (9) was married twice.   She first married "John C. Holcombe" who was born in ca. 1838.   They had two known children together. John who died on April 18, 1872 at the age of 34 and was interred in the Mt. Hope Cemetery, Lambertville, New Jersey close to his dau Matilda (37).

      Isabella (9) then married "Charles T. Kitchin" as the book titled "History of Bucks County" [written by Battle, page 1095] shows.   Charles was born in ca. 1847, his parents however are currently unknown.   This same book mentions that Charles T. Kitchin had a stepson named Joseph Holcombe which further assures this marriage.   She must have married Charles in ca. 1873.

      Charles was a soldier during the Civil War and is believed to have been a 1Lt. in the 38th New Jersey Infantry.   Charles died on November 23, 1887 at the age of 40 and was interred in Mt. Hope Cemetery, Lambertville, New Jersey near Isabella's (9) first husband John.   Isabella (9) died on April 8, 1930 at the age of 78 and was interred by her second husband Charles.   Isabella is believed to have had 8 children
