Pickard Family – Nicholas, 1701

NICHOLAS PICKARD (Son of BARTHOLOMEW)

Nicholas was born at Schenectady, New York, and baptized February 23, 1701.

His parents were Bartholomeus PICKERT and Eechje CLAESZ [Eva KLAESEN].

Nicholas married Anna Barbara WEISER about 1724. She was the daughter of John Conrad WEISER, the Palatine leader and the sister of Colonel Conrad Weiser, the Indian agent for Pennsylvania.

(Note from Donna NFlem32@aol.com: Conrad Weiser came to the US in 1710 with the Palatines and settled in the Hudson Valley. A lot has been written about him, including a novel about his son, John. A fairly good account of Weiser is in the “Story of the Palatines” by Stanford Cobb.)

Nicholas and Barbara had seven children,

all of who had issue. Nicholas died sometime after 1756.

One thought on “Pickard Family – Nicholas, 1701

  1. Looking for descendants of William Pickard who was the son of Nicholas and who came to Canada about 1785 with his family. I’m specifically interested in information about his son, John who followed his father and siblings to Ontario in 1801 with a wife and 10 children. I need to know the names of the 10 children. Thanks for any help you can give.
