Notes for RICHARD STRICKLAND:
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.
