This biography from the Archives of AskART:
The following is from Martha M. Boltz, Vienna, VA

Pickett was born 12-31-1857 and was the son of George E. Pickett, who would gain fame as the leader of "Pickett's Charge" during the Civil War battle at Gettysburg, PA., called the high water mark of the Confederacy. Pickett had been married to a Haida Indian woman in the Northwest Territory, and it was to this union that the artist was born. He was named after Gen. Pickett's adjutant and good friend, James TILTON, hence the correct spelling of his name.

I know that his foster parents sent him to "an art school in San Francisco", following school at Olympia Academy, Olympia, WA, and have been trying to find out which art school it was. If you are privy to that information, I would very much appreciate hearing it. I have done a newspaper article on Pickett, and am in the midst of writing a book on him. This one small but important fact has not been recorded.

From Peter Falk, "Who Was Who in American Art"

Pickett began drawing at an early age, using charcoal and berry juices and other natural pigments on wood. He was a staff artist for the "Seattle Post Intelligencer" and "Portland Oregonian".
