Benjamin Pickett came from the state of Pennsylvania whe single and married Mary Hadley and located himself 4 milesnorth of Cane Creek meeting house of Friends on a small creek called Rock Creek in Orange Co. North Carolina. Benjamin owned good and was energetic man in business and accumulated considerable, in his time, by farming and cooper trade, but his loss was great in having much of his personal property taken from him by soldiers in the time of the Revolutionary War.
As a description of him, he was not as high as a common man, middling heavy set, round shoulders with fair skin and yellow hair, and affible in his manner, easy to be approached by strangers, in conversation rather of a jokey disposition and of a mild temper, a servicable man.
Benjamin and Mary were members of the Cane Creek Monthly Meeting and are buried in the Cane Creek Cemetery near the church.
