John J. Pickren, George Walter Pickren, Cody-Pickren
Donald Cody Pickren (1906-1930)was the g-gs of John J. Pickren (1795-1867) and also the gg-gs of Levi Wright(1795-1863). (Donald's parents, George Walter Pickren and Mary Victoria Cody, were over 17 years apart in age, hence the apparent generational span in DCP's ancestors of lineage dates - all of which is accurate and verified.)Many of these Pickren ancestors lived in areas surrounding Coffee County and Telfair County, Georgia.
Donald's "Cody" name comes from his own immediate direct grandfather, John Augustus Cody (1850-1927)who immigrated from Kilkenny, Ireland - and after living in several states, J.A.C. served as postmaster of his town here in the United States.
