 Sent by Brad Dixon, <braddixon2@yahoo.com>, Thu, Aug 04, 2011 05:10 AM:      I do know that he eventually raised a rather large family in Parker County and was married 4 or more times and had around 15 children. He died in 1920 after apparently suffering a heart attack while riding into Weatherford in a wagon driven by my grandfather, Henry Mac Scoville, who was 9 years old at the time. T.J. Pickard was born in December of 1838 in Maury County, Tennessee and so he would have been 82 when he died.  ... I would be happy to provide any information I can regarding my gggrandDad and will try and find out more in the coming months. I would very much appreciate any information you could provide me regarding the history of the unit as well.

Editor's note:  re: "married 4 or more times"   Criswell family records show that Margaret Criswell (b-1827 AR, married - or died - before the 1850 census) was married to a Pickard.   per Cresswell, Creswell, Criswell Moving West  by Harold and Mary Criswell of Plano TX.

Criswell family records show that Margaret Criswell (b-1827 AR) married a Pickard.   per Cresswell, Creswell, Criswell Moving West  by Harold and Mary Criswell of Plano TX. ...  Margaret Criswell's two brothers (D.E. Criswell and W.M. Criswell) plus three of her brothers-in-law (F.H. Blair, J.A. Lafferty and  R.D. Lowrance) were also in Pyron's 2d Cav, Co H.   ... Therefore, we assume Margaret Criswell m-T.J. Pickard or one of his brothers.

To all whom it may concern:

This is to certify that Jno A. Lafferty was a member of Co "H" 2nd Regt. Tex. Cav. C.S.A. from the 13th day of April 1861 until the close of the War in May 1865 and during all that time he was a true and faithful soldier he was wounded on the 21st day of June 1863 at the Battle of LaFouche crossing before Thibedeauville in Thibodeauville [Lafourche Parish], La. ..I never gave any of my company a discharge when the war ended we marched out from under the guns of the Federal Gun boats and came home with all our arms and horses so we were neither paroled nor discharged.

Ben Thompson Dedication Press Release

On April 29, 2012   Ben Thompsonís life will be recognized, honored and discussed by experts, authors and descendants for the first time in history. Six organizations, The Austin History Center, The Ben Thompson Preservation Foundation, The Giddings Area Chamber of Commerce, The Sons of Confederate Veterans, The Former Texas Rangers Foundation and The Wild West History Association, will celebrate and honor Ben Thompsonís life as a Confederate soldier, gunfighter and Austin City Marshal.

Beginning at 1:30 p.m., The Sons of Confederate Veterans, Major George W. Littlefield Camp 59, will host a graveside Confederate service to honor the family of Ben Thompson at the Oakwood Cemetery in Austin, Texas. The tribute will include the posting of colors, a 21 musket & cannon salute, and the unveiling of a bronze footstone and Confederate Southern Cross. The Oakwood Cemetery is located at 1601 Navasota Street.

Immediately following the graveside marker dedication at the Oakwood Cemetery, the Austin History Center will host a history conference with an exhibit of artifacts and photos. Special guest speakers, including Thompson family members will be speaking on the life of Ben Thompson and will be available for a question-and-answer session. Authors will have their books for sale. The Austin History Center is located at 810 Guadalupe Street.

There were few men on the western frontier who took part in more historic events or crowded more drama into a forty-year life-span than did Ben Thompson. Ben was a Confederate cavalry officer, major in the Emperor Maximilianís army, Indian fighter, gambler in most every cow town in the west and served as Austinís city marshal.

Contrary to public perceptions of him, Ben Thompson was soft spoken, courteous, generous and fiercely loyal to his family and friends. He followed a moral code that few gunfighters displayed; honesty, fair dealing, and responsibility for actions taken were his trademarks. His word and handshake were as good as gold. Many are not aware of his civic accomplishments and his patriotic service during the Civil War. Ben was a defender of people of all races, a defender of women and the weak, an Austin firefighter, an advocate for fair taxes, a supporter of the Bayland Orphanage, a gift giver to Travis county jail prisoners at Christmas, and the most successful city marshal of Austin.

The event is open to the public. Members of the Press and special guests please RSVP.
