Hi Matt - thanks for leaving your comment.
Your guess is totally off though. I'm originally from Memphis, Tennessee. My great-great grandfather, who was a Pickey, and his wife died in a yellow fever epidemic there in the 1880's - orphaning my great grandfather.
Great-great grandparents on my mother's side originally hail from Ripley, Mississippi.
You can't get much more Southern than Memphis BBQ, Elvis and Beale Street.
Bless your heart!
