2015 was the Bicentenary of the Success and Death


Lieutenant General Sir Thomas Picton

at the

Battle of Waterloo

He distinguished himself and died June 18, 1815 helping defeat Napoleon while fighting under the Duke of Wellington at the Battle of Waterloo. His body was brought to London in a keg of whisky. He first was buried at St. George's, Hanover Square and later reburied at St. Paul's Cathedral. Folklore has him riding out and fighting the Battle of Waterloo in either tuxedo suit of tails and top hat or his night shirt and top hat because either his luggage had not arrived or he had overslept. I can not prove that I am related to him but both he and my ancestors came from Pembrokeshire, Wales.

We hope that you can join us for the Picton Reunion in 2021. Marian S. Tubach appreciates the many email addresses received and will send notices to as many as possible that way. Often people don't think to update addresses for the Pictons Reunion when they move. Many invitations come back as undeliverables. Please pass this information along to family members since we have lost touch with some.

The Picton Reunion is normally scheduled on even years on the first Sunday in August
at Hiawatha, Kansas, USA
