    Hi – I found your blog while researching my ancestry… we are related through James Strickland. Have you had any luck with uncovering information about his parents?

    • No, I have not. Please share with me how you are related.

        James Strickland > Eli Strickland > Lemuel Stores Strickland > Ira Eugene Strickland > John Ray Strickland > John Robert Strickland > Grant Thiel Strickland > me. Coincidentally, my neighbor is also related to James Strickland and Naomi Needham. He has been researching Naomi’s ancestry. Neither of us have had much luck with James’ history prior to his serving in the war.
