I can prove that no John Pykarell (Pickerell) and his family came to Virginia in 1590. The whole family was an invention and should not be on anyone's pedigree chart. I have just completed a ten page report to explain all this. It is well documented with carefully annotated historical references. Interested parties can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you leave a "snail-mail" address, I will send you a one page sheet that describes the problem. Or you can send your name and address and five dollars, for copying and mailing, to Ann Emerson, 540 Latimer Road, Santa Monica, CA 90402 and I will send you a copy of the entire report right away. All Pickerill (various spellings) family historians are urged to do so. The report reads like a detective story.
