I am trying to identify the parents of Rheuamia ROE, b. 01 Jan 1811 in Delaware Co., New
York; m. Silas Pickett circa 1830; d. 28 Feb 1888 in Charlotteville, Schoharie Co., New
Silas Pickett, b. 24 May 1809 in Connecticut; d. 07 Jun 1879 in Jefferson, Schoharie Co.,
New York. Reportedly, Samuel was the son of Nathan and Hannah WASHBURN Picket(t).
Silas and Rheuamia are buried in Charlotteville Cem., Jefferson, Schoharie Co., New York.
Silas and Rheuamia are believed to have had at least 10 children, all likely born in
Schoharie Co., New York between 1832-1858. The children are named David M., Mary, Levi M.,
Hannah, Daniel O., Sarah M., James R., George A., Adelia M., and Elmer.
Silas and Rheuamia apparently resided in the area of Jefferson, Schoharie County for their
entire adult lives.
The towns of Jefferson and Kortright, New York are separated by about 10 miles. Rheuamia
ROE Pickett may be related to some of the Roe persons residing in Kortright, Delaware Co.,
New York, circa 1830, about the time of her marriage to Silas. The candidate Roe males
enumerated in Kortright for the 1830 census are Samuel, Bezaleil (?), Nathan, and Joshua.
One of them may be the father of Rheuamia.
Any information about the parentage or siblings of Rheuamia ROE Pickett (1811-1888) would
be much appreciated.
