    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."

    Link to Google MapsObituary - IN MEMORY OF MRS. M. E. STRICKLAND On Saturday the holy city welcomed a most saintly guest. Grandmother Strickland passed so quietly and peacefully away. At 1 o'clock, May 1, 1920, she answered her Masters’ call at Foch, Texas, after a lingering illness of more than four months. Granny, as she was called, was born in Talladega County, Ala., Sept. 27, 1837, married March 13, 1856 to E. Strickland. She is survived by an only daughter, Mrs. A. T. Higginbotham, of Foch, Texas; a brother, Mr. A. G. Leverett of Dublin, Texas, who was with her the last days of her life, and Mrs. M. J. Howell of Dublin, Texas, who came for the funeral. At the age of seventeen her life was consecrated to the Lord. Joined the Baptist church at Bethel, Ala. The bible was to this sainted one, not the cornerstone of her life, but the entire foundation. “The Bible says so,” will ring in the ears of all who knew her. These words were used to check, to encourage and advise several generations. Granny was 82 years, 7 months and four days of age. The head of the family of four generations. Three wars passed on her lifes (sic) program. The first robbed her of her loyal patriotic husband, who honored his country as captain of the Civil War, who left a faithful wife and babe of two years and 9 months. The last war found her still true to her husbunds (sic) memory. The mother of a most consecrated daughter, Mrs. A. T. Higginbotham. And grandmother of ten staunch grandsons and one grand daughter (sic). The honored saint was a member of the First Baptist church of Foch, Texas, where her funeral service were conducted by her pastor, Rev. C. E. Leslie. She was the widow of a Mason and former member of the Eastern Star. She had always made her home with her only daughter, Mrs. A. T. Higginbotham. Let us heed her beckoning hand which bids us come where there is no more parting and sorrow.
