To Lee Ervin: I enjoyed your comments about your grandmother, "Ma Pic." Since posting my previous note, I have discovered that a fourth great-uncle also took part in Pickett's Charge at Gettysburg. His name was Benjamin Doss. I don't think our family was related to Gen. Pickett. (However we are related to Jesse and Frank James, and the Dalton brothers, who were first cousins. Their mothers were sisters. My great-grandmother was a Dalton.) A newly-found cousin gave me copies of photos of three of my Gettysburg great-uncles. It's fascinating to look into the eyes of these handsome young men! Benjamin Doss so closely resembles my late father; they look like brothers!
