In the early 1890's a group of Stricklands/ Stricklins moved from the NE part of Mississippi, probably Booneville in Prentiss
County. One of these families was my great Aunt "Fannie" Francis Pearl Allred and her husband James "Jim" Benjamin
Strickland. He is a son of Levi Shivers Stricklin and Mary C. Wilelm. I am interested in communicating with any of the
descendants of the above mentioned persons, most especially of Fannie & James. It is known that they resided in Van Zandt County Texas, Most are buried in Holly Springs Cemetery between Canton and Athens, Texas in Van Zandt County.Below is the info that I have on the descendants thus far:
