I have been researching the Pitcocks for over twenty years.Study the culture, law and history of the time period and place you are researching. Thomas was in PA in 1767, in Loudoun County, VA in 1769, in Berkeley County (VA)WV in 1783. The statement that Anna made about her father (John) that he came to TN from PA was probably true, although he (John) stated in the census of 1850 he was born in VA. Look at the census of 1830 Washington County, TN. Who was reported with John ref. to the Washington Co. TN tax lists before 1800. Stephen (brother of Thomas) of early years lived in Frederick Co, VA. Thomas had a son, Stephen who was killed in 1791. The order of birth naming of children was a culture thing, the British law of wills. Once you learn and understand of the times, your research will fall into place. You will not find a document for everything.
