What I have now.
Father: Clifford E. Strickland 1909-1965
Grandparents: John William Strickland 1885-1951
Laura Vanna Evans Strickland 1891-1920 (we are stuck on her parents. If you have knowledge on her family please share it with us. Laura and a daughter, Addy Mary are buried at High Shoals cemetery in High Shoals, Ga.)
2 nd grandmother is Julia Whitley Malcolm Strickland 1896-1971
Great grandparents: John Monroe Strickland 1860-? and Sarah J. Dunaway 1861-1900.
2 nd great grandparents: Ansel Butler Strickland 1814-1863
1st wife: Elizabeth Strickland ( again we can't find any more info on her)
2 nd wife: Mary Polly Braswell Strickland 1833-1853
3rd great grandparents: Bennett Strickland and Nancy other info on them yet either.
4th great grandfather is Ansel Bennett. Our problem here is there are 2 of them with the same dates..but children names are all mixed up with some names on both. We are trying to sort that out now.
Its def. been a challenge to get as far as we have. Lots of census to go through.
As you can tell we are very new to this so any help you can give us would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you very much.

Clifford Edward Strickland
I noticed you left flowers on my daddy and brothers memorial.
Clifford Strickland is my daddy and Wallace Fred Strickland is my brother. Pauline Strickland Ward is my mom. I noticed your last name doesn't end with a d. I know a number of Strickland's spell the name different. My daughter and I have been doing the genealogy on my daddys family. Are we by chance related? If so how? You can email me at:

RE: Mae Lisa McCormack
Thanks. I looked and could not find Ernest, must have done something wrong.

Mae had a sister Maude. Maude married Ernest's brother Howard. Mae and Maude's mother was Lou Peake who's 2nd husband was my uncle Benjamin F. Peake.

The brothers owned McCormack Trucking Co., in Okc. during the 1950's and earlier. Were quite prosperous.

Just stated all that for any family member of Mae and Maude who may be searching. Can't find Maude & Howards death or memorial records.

Mae Lisa McCormack

Donna, I knew this family very well, on the memorial page you show (properly) she is beside Ernest McCormack, he is her husband.

Mae's mother was married (2nd) to my uncle Benjamin Peake and lived across the street from them in Nicoma Park, Ok. Ernest McCormack was in the Trucking business with his brother Howard.

Is it possible to make a memorial for him and connect the two. I have no personal info on Ernest.
Ironically, I am now going to a hairdresser who is married to a McCormack. Talking with him yesterday I found out he is related to Ernest & Howard, so I may be able to get some info from him. Later Ok, and thanks for listening.
