    History: General Andrew Pickens (1739–1817) of the American Revolution was a great grandson of Robert (Andrew) Pickens alias Robert (André) Picon, reportedly a Huguenot who in 1685 left France to avoid religious persecution and settled briefly in Scotland and finally in Northern Ireland. The name of this ancestor is listed in the (US) National Huguenot Society's register of qualified Huguenot ancestors, where he is said to have been born in France to André Picon, while some other sources claim he was a Scotsman who, having married a French Huguenot woman, lived in France until 1685.
