Thought I would send this to you since I can tell you a little about the Washington's Crossing-Pidcock connection. Johnathan Pidcock supposedly built the first permanant dwelling in this area. Today it is part of the Thompson-Neely House which is part of the Washington's Crossing Park site as is Bowman's Hill Tower. These are located in Bucks Co., PA. You find Pidcock, Pitcock, Pittcock, Petcock and Pedcock in a variety of records including the census. Many of the descendants of John Pidcock moved over to Hunterdon Co., NJ. Other Pidcocks can be found in 1790 census records for other PA counties. Johnathan Pidcock had a son John who is mentioned in several Bucks Co. records. What other children he may have had is unknown to me. The Hunterdon Co. Pidcocks have a book about some descendants from their branch, but I can't remember if they mention a Stephen. One of the problems with doing research on this family is there seems to be at least one missing generation missing generation in the 1700s. There were several members of a later generation who probably served in the Revolution from PA or NJ. I personally am stuck with Charles Pidcock who was born about 1827-28 and married Elizabeth Moss (recorded in marriage as Morse) in 1851. They lived in Bucks Co. according to my grandmother. Charles died about 1852 leaving a son, James Monroe Pidcock. Elizabeth married Nicholas Haney. James Monroe Pidcock appears in the 1860 census living in what I believe to be his grandparents' household. His grandfather was Charles Moss if I am right. Hope some of this helps. If anybody knows anything about Charles, let me know.
