was born Abt. 1775. He married SUSANNAH BARFIELD. She was born Abt. 1780.
Richard Strickland was born about 1775. He is first found listed as charter members of the Jones Creek Baptist Church in Liberty County, Georgia. They signed the original covenant on April 22, 1810. Richard is believed to have served in Capt. John Winn's Company of Infantry, 2nd Regiment, Georgia Militia during the War of 1812. He enlisted January 18, 1815 and was discharged February 26, 1815. Church records indicate Richard and Susannah were dismissed from Jones Creek Baptist church on May 24, 1834.
It appears Richard moved his family to Appling County, Georgia around this time. He is listed as Justice of the Inferior Court in Appling County in 1828. Richard and Susannah's children are noted in the church records of Beard's Creek Baptist Church as having been received and baptized in 1832 on the southside of the Altamaha River.
Richards name was recorded as moderator for Goose Creek Baptist Church in Appling County in 1834. He was listed each session through the year 1839. Records for the church for the years 1839 -1845 are missing. Neither Richard or Susannah are found in the 1840 census, so it is assumed they were deceased by this time.
