Pickens in Jaspar County IL

Hi ... I'm just starting to research my ancestry through my mother's side, whose grandfather was a Pickens from Newton, IL. I'm working through at present. At first it seems easy, then I see discrepancies, and family trees that don't agree with each other, and realize I have to be more careful!

I thought I'd post what I *think* is true based on what I've found so far. If anyone else fits into this tree, or has different information, or another resource I can check, it would be appreciated.

Here is my line, going from my great-grandfather backwards:

Darwin Clifton Pickens (1887 - 1975)
Arthus Clarence Pickens (1854 - 1948)
(other sons: Ernest, Cecil)
David Randall Pickens (1821 - 1915)
David Pickens (1795 - 1822)
John Pickens, Sr (1765 - 1822)
James Pickens (1716 - 1800; arr US 1718 from Ireland)
Thomas Pickens (1690 - 1739; arr US 1718 from Ireland)
Robert Andrew Pickens (1644-France - 1699-Ireland)
Andrew Picon? Pickens (1624-Scotland - 1658-Ireland)
Robert Pickens Picon? (1600-Scotland - 1639-Ireland)
André Pickens (1581-France - 1619)

I've pretty much pieced this together from the suggestions on that seem to make sense, so I realize I may just be perpetuating someone else's errors.

And I wonder: Is "Picon" another part of the name, or just an alternate spelling?

Thanks for any help and information!
