    Notes 
    • RJCarr: (2012 JAN) Mary married Ezekiel Strickland in 1856. From letters written by Ezekiel to his father-in-law, in April 1859 Mary and Ezekiel had moved to Arkansas and were living within 6 miles of Lewisville, 15 of Dorcheat and within a quarter mile of the Bayou Bodcau. Despite the request for his father-in-law to write to him & Lizzie at Lewisville, Ezekiel continued to post his letters from Dorcheat. Following Ezekiel's battle death in April 1864, Mary returned to live with her father in Oakfuskee, AL. A 16 March, 1861 letter to Abraham from Ezekiel contains the only reference to Negroes in any Leverett capacity: "She is a lazy negro does nothing but eat and wait on Miss Lizzie."

    Higginbotham: 1858 Bible Family Records
    The scanned, four pages of family records contains marriages, births and deaths of the following families listed alphabetically: Dozier, Higginbotham, Kennedy, Leverett, Strickland and Vaughn. Judging from the dates, names included, and handwriting, it appears that the Bible belonged originally to Mary Elizabeth (Leverett) and her husband Ezekiel Strickland. It would then have passed to to Emily Dozier (Strickland) and her husband Abraham Taylor Higginbotham.
