Mercy (Martin) Strickland 1807-1843
Posted by: Gerry Gieger (ID *****0203) Date: November 04, 2011 at 19:11:57
  of 81

Looking for information on Mercy Strickland, (nee Martin) who was born ca1807 in Bulloch or Bryan County GA and died September 11, 1843. I have information provided several years ago that she died in Pierce Co., Georgia.

She married JOHN STRICKLAND on January 01, 1827 in Bulloch Co., Georgia, He is the son of DAVID STRICKLAND and TREACY MARTIN. He was born September 07, 1804 in Bulloch Co., Georgia, and died April 17, 1879 in Pierce Co., Georgia.

She is called “Nancy” in this data albeit her mother specifically calls her "Mercy” in an 1841 Quit-Claim Deed. (Don’t know if they have proof for that name or just can’t accept that a person could be named Mercy, albeit it is repeated in several of her relatives.)

Claim is also that she is buried in Ash Branch Cemetery in Bulloch County, GA next to her father, James Martin, and that her still-born child was buried in the same casket with her.

I want to straighten this out, if possible. Any help will be appreciated.
