Introduction. Samuel Strickland of Galloway Township, Gloucester (now Atlantic) County, New Jersey and Michael Strickland of Upper Township, Cape May County, New Jersey and their descendants shall be our focus. The paper trail of these men began in the last quarter of the 18th century. Samuel was an illiterate carpenter of meager means whose descendants continued to live in the Leeds Point, Port Republic and Smithville area of Atlantic County for many generations. By contrast, Michael was apparently well educated and wealthy. He lived in Cape May County for only a short time, moving with his family to Clermont County, Ohio about 1806. Samuel preceded Michael by a generation and Samuel is said, by some, to be Michael’s father.

Strickland Origin. Samuel and Michael’s name was sometimes spelled Stricklin, as was the name of their progeny in succeeding generations. Although Strickland is the spelling most commonly used today, the name is found in ancient English and early American records in various forms: Stricklin, Stirkland, Strickeland, Strikland and Stirkelaude. The surname is derived from the residence of its first bearers at a place of that name, originally Stirkland, in Westmorland County, England. Four places in Westmorland continue to bear the name today, Great and Little Strickland, in the Parish of Morland, Strickland Kettle and Strickland Roger, in the Parish of Kendal. Strick-land or stirk-land is pasture ground for young cattle, called strike or steers. Sizergh Castle, located in Westmorland, was brought to the Strickland family when Sir William de Strickland married Elizabeth d’Eyncourt in 1239AD and the castle remains in the family to this day.

Where was Samuel born? Samuel Strickland researchers have searched in vain for his origins. Samuel is thought to have been born about 1740-1742. An application filed in 1964 by Bertha E. Linglebach for membership in the Daughters of the American Revolution, shows Samuel was probably born in NJ. Ms. Linglebach is the 4th great grand daughter of Samuel, through his son Israel. The typed "Place of Birth" entry was marked through and "Gloucester Co." inserted by hand. Ms. Lingelbach uses a property deed transferring title to land from James Higbee and his wife to Israel Strickland as the reference to establish the place of birth of Samuel Strickland, her Revolutionary War soldier ancestor. The deed, dated Christmas Day 1853, mentions Israel Strickland who is the son of Eli Strickland and the grandson of Samuel Strickland. In the deed Israel pays James Higbee and his wife ten dollars for what is described as a: "Tract or piece of Ground situated in the Township of Galloway County of Atlantic and State of New Jersey, and bounded as follows: Beginning at the stake standing in the Road leading from Asa Strickland’s through and by where Eli Strickland now lives to the Philadelphia Road near Edward Stricklands and from thence running by lands of the said Eli Strickland and the house of Israel Strickland to the Road aforesaid thence by the same and bordering thereon to the place of Beginning containing half an acre in the same more or less bearing all the Land on the West side of said Road which the said James Higbee now stands…". The forgoing synopsis omits much of the technical language contained in the original. Little does this deed provide to substantiate Samuel’s place of birth. Should family tradition and the paths of numerous contemporaries be relied upon, Samuel and/or his family would first be found in Connecticut, perhaps Hartford, and then in Long Island, perhaps Hempstead and then on to northern New Jersey and eventually to Galloway Township. This was a typical migration path, with Connecticut founded in the early 1600s, Long Island in the mid 1600s, and South Jersey in the late 1600s. Many were attracted by the whaling industry, and by the fact they might only own 20 acres on Long Island, while in South Jersey they could own 200 acres.

Were Asa, Israel and Appolonia children of Samuel and his wife, Diadema? Until further research sheds additional light on the validity of the documentation of Bertha Linglebach’s DAR application, we maybe left to conclude she is correct. The property deed referred to in the foregoing paragraph does little or nothing to prove or disprove her conclusions. Her application listed Michael as their child. Ms Linglebach may have relied on Mrs. Neisz DAR application to identify Samuel and Diadema’s children. Some may contend that the inclusion of Michael as a child may place in doubt the parentage of Samuel’s other children. Mrs. Neisz’ addition of Michael seems to be based solely on her research and she apparently did not avail herself of local knowledge. The Willis Notebook entries and similar handwritten notes (found at the Atlantic County Historical Society) all point to Asa, Israel and Appolonia as children of Samuel. Absent a will, property deeds transferring property from Samuel to his heirs, guardianship records or perhaps some other documentation, speculation reigns. At this juncture a fairly creditable case can be made by saying: Samuel lived at the right time to be their father; Samuel was a carpenter and the offspring were overwhelmingly carpenters; and Samuel lived, worked and died in the Leeds Point/Smithville/Port Republic vicinity as did the purported offspring. The family saw similar military service. No record has been found to suggest parentage other than Samuel. An entry in the Willis Notebook states the given name of Israel’s father was Samuel.

Diadema. Samuel and Diadema (Diademy) were said to have been married before 1763. Diadema is reported to have spent her childhood on Brigantine Island. The association of the Baremore family with Brigantine may be the reason for adding the surname Baremore to Diadema. James Baremore of Philadelphia was the first full time resident of Brigantine but didn’t become part of the history of Brigantine until the 1790’s, when he married Eunice Leeds. Since Diadema was probably born in the 1740s the association with the surname Baremore is open to question. Perhaps the meaning Webster gives to the word Diadema (crown, ornamental headband, real power or dignity) adds to the speculation, by later Strickland descendants, that Diadema was an Indian Princess. However, an extensive search in the early 1980s by the developer of "Historic Smithville," Ethyl Noyes, failed to validate the century old Indian legend. The legends of Diadema growing up on Brigantine and that she was said to be an "Absegami Indian" are historically compatible.

The Lenni-Lenape (translation: original people) had no written language. Important events were kept in memory by carefully repeated traditions handed from generation to generation with singular accuracy. Sometimes these events, the terms of a treaty or the memoranda of a messenger were arbitrarily associated with particular arrangements of the beads of wampum embroidered on a belt, which was read by one whom knew the memorial arrangement at councils.

If Diadema were an Indian there would be no record of her birth. Likewise a marriage record for Samuel and Diadema has not been found. A Lenni-Lenape marriage would match all of the speculation and facts currently available. A Native American heritage did not always garner the acclaim it does in recent times. Therefore, the persistence of the tale cannot be ignored.

New Jersey’s Native Americans. The History of Gloucester, Salem and Cumberland Counties, New Jersey was published in 1883 and gives us a rather unique perspective on the Native Americans of South Jersey. The chapter on them, written by Rev. J. Y. Burk, departs from the traditional view of the times.

West Jersey was not only the home of a larger population of Indians than perhaps any similar area in the Middle States, but was most largely visited by those who lived elsewhere. Many of the Pennsylvania clans were in the habit of making annual visits to the seashore along well-known trails across the State. There they may have enjoyed sea bathing and social dissipations, but their chief object was to procure fish, oysters, and clams for drying as winter food and partly for making and getting money. . . . The Lenni-Lenapes were really a noble people . . . were a strong, induced them to become "women" that is "non-combatants" under treaty vigorous and brave race. . . .By a singular strategy of the Iroquois the had been obligations which at the time protected them from incursions, made them a barrier against invading tribes and placed them in the position of umpires in times of disturbance . . . On the testimony of the Europeans themselves we gather that the Indians were from the first their friends, that when kindly treated they were capable of devoted and enduring friendships, that they were extremely sensitive to contempt and injury and that in the fatal difficulties which arose between them the Indians were not the aggressors.

Indians living along the Lenape-Wihittuck are credited with the institution of summer excursions to a spot they called "Absegami." When the first warm days of June spread upon the mainland, the tribes were ready for their march to the sea. Oyster beds and fishing were special attractions. The Indians erected temporary lodges of skins or cedar barks and boughs, where they lived and feasted throughout the summer months on luxuries supplied by the waters and marshes. When the first cool autumn breezes began to blow, they retired to Lenape Lake and other inland spots.

It takes very little imagination to project our young Samuel, living in this sparsely settled locale, to look for ways to increase meaning in his life. Proof exists that he worked near Brigantine Island as a mature man. With excitement and adventure but a ferry ride away, this young man may have joined in on the Indian’s summer activities. The Absegami, being a friendly lot who "enjoyed sea bathing and social dissipations," may have welcomed young Samuel into their midst. Diadema could have been one of those who welcomed our Samuel. Warm summer evenings, (after the mosquitoes and green head flies had gone to bed) gathered around a blazing fire eating roasted oysters would indeed be the ingredients for starting a lasting relationship.

Brigantine Island. Samuel and Diadema had close ties with Brigantine: Samuel while working for the Friendship Saltworks and Diadema living there as a child. The Dutch first claimed the land as a result of the exploration of Henry Hudson. Hudson first sighted the island while on the Dutch vessel "Half Moon." The Half Moon’s logbook dated September of 1608 notes "when the sun rose...we saw land...all alike, broken islands...This is a very good place to fall in with." By 1664, the island had become a part of the British province of West Jersey. The island was called Watamoonica or "playground" by the Lenape Indians. In the eighteenth century, a sailing vessel was wrecked in the ocean just east of the island. The vessel type was a Brigantine and it soon became the reference point for the island. James Baremore’s son Daniel, as an unproven family legend has it, scolded a group of British soldiers for stealing vegetables from the family farm. Thereafter, the British officers in charge paid for the vegetables.

The island became a hiding place for pirates and became well known for its shoals. New England whale men also used the island as a temporary shelter.

Samuel’s Occupation. The State of New Jersey Census Records of 1784 show Samuel to be a house carpenter, and he was also a water pump specialist at a local saltworks, as well. The Journal of Thomas Hopkins –1780 provides a personal view of Samuel’s working environment. Hopkins was the onsite manager of the Friendship Saltworks. He recorded each day’s activities with a first hand account of life at the facility and a glimpse of Samuel and some of the people who worked there. The employees ate and slept at the saltworks, and according to Hopkin’s journal entries, people haven’t changed but their working conditions and quality of life have. For example: a man could not work because he was drunk, left the work site without permission and verbally abused the boss. Woodcutters wouldn’t work unless their pay was increased; a man got sick; and they worked from sun up to sun down. They split wood, tended the fires, and hauled hay for the horses. They ate clams for days on end when the salt beef ran out. They delivered casks of salt to Philadelphia returning home with oats and other items. They returned to their residences for short periods. When they traveled, they stayed at the Blue Anchor rather than the Holiday Inn; they filled their horse with oats and water rather than their SUV with fuel, and crossed the river on the ferry rather than the bridge.

But, Samuel was not a regular employee of the saltworks. He was employed on an as-needed basis to work on the pumps and associated equipment. He might be onsite for several days at a time. He presumably ate with the regular employees but it is unclear if he slept at the works. Samuel’s name appears several times in this journal, and those entries are excerpted as follows:

6 Oclock Clear Frosty Morning wind N Martin & Jake Getting Ready to light fire, Sam’l Strickland got the Boxes in the Pumps this forenoon, full tide fill’d the pond with mittling good Watter . .

Carpenter, cooper and blacksmithing would be essential skills in the operation of the saltworks. Building, operating and maintaining the pumps, sluices, control valves, and other operating equipment would require a myriad of skills. Friendship allowed water to flow into a holding pond and would pump it from there to the iron drying pans. In later plants, the drying beds were covered with water pumped from surface wells dug in the beach sand. The water in these surface wells was much saltier than the seawater. The water was evaporated by the sun in saltworks of later years. But, wood fueled fires were used at the Friendship works. The salt was harvested, used in surrounding communities and shipped to Philadelphia. The "trunk" line that Samuel was tending would have been made of wooden staves much like our wooden barrels are today. The staves were held together by metal hoops. It would be almost a century before metal pipes would take the place of those built of wood.

Like so many of his rural contemporaries, Samuel owned 3 cows and other livestock, and he farmed 12 acres of land according to the census records of 1784. The property associated with Samuel’s home place contained salt marsh. Leeds Point was located on salt marsh and was the port for the ferry to Brigantine, thus making Samuel’s commute to the salt works convenient. We can conclude he lived in Leeds Point because Brigantine did not have permanent residences until the Baremore family established their home there a few years after Samuel’s death.

Communities. It is important to distinguish between Job’s Point (where Michael Strickland of Cape May County once lived) and Leeds Point/Port Republic/Smithville because they are separated by twenty to thirty miles. Gordon’s History of New Jersey, published by Daniel Fenton of Trenton in 1834, provides sketches of the Port Republic, Smithville and Leeds Point:

Gravelly Landing (Port Republic) of Galloway township, 40 miles southeast of Woodbury, the county seat and 79 miles from Trenton, on Nacote Creek, contains a tavern, a store and 10 or 12 dwellings.

Leeds Point, post town, in Galloway Township, 83 miles from Trenton, contains a store and 4 or 5 houses.

Smithville, Village in Galloway, 2 miles from Leeds Point, contains a tavern, a store, Methodist meeting house, and 10 or 12 dwellings, surrounded by pines and near salt marsh.

Leeds Point, Smithville, and Port Republic are in Galloway Township, in northern Atlantic County near the Little Egg Harbor River, also known as the Mullica River. Leeds Point was the port for the ferry to Brigantine.

On the other hand, Job’s Point is a point of land located on the banks of the Great Egg Harbor River, in southern Atlantic County. It is across the river from Cape May County and west of Somers Point. Job’s Point is not part of the 1843 description because was a locale, not a town, and was part of the Scullville area of Egg Harbor Township. It was from there that the first ferry crossed the Great Egg Harbor River into Cape May County. The name Job’s Point still exists today.

Revolution. Samuel’s service to the fledgling nation is documented on page 46 in the War of the Revolution by Cushing & Sheppard and page 712 of Ken Stryker’s Official Register of the Officers and Men of New Jersey in the Revolutionary War. General Stryker examined and compared the pension-lists of the government, the minutes of the Congress of the United States, and of the Legislature and Council of Safety, records of the War Department, as well as original manuscripts, rolls of companies of Continental troops, diaries of officers, pay masters, memoranda, quartermasters’ report, treasures receipts, returns to the commander-in chief etc. Samuel Strickland appears on this list without a reference to the organization he was attached. List I, 1776-1777 lists Samuel Strickland. Ms. Linglebach says Samuel served as a Private in Colonel Elias Dayton’s Third New Jersey Regiment from Gloucester County. Attaching Samuel to the Third New Jersey is historically correct in that . . .

Upon filling the second battalion, authority for the formation of a third battalion was given by Congress, Jan. 10, 1776. Elias Dayton was made the colonel. Four companies of this battalion were first stationed at Staten Island, and the other four at Albany. The privates were enlisted for one year, at five dollars per month and were allowed, instead of bounty, "a felt hat, a pair of yarn-stockings and a pair of shoes, but were to furnish their own arms. It was intended that these battalions of New Jersey troops should form a part of an expedition to Canada, but intelligence from Quebec induced a change of plan, and on the 1st of June (1776) the Third Battalion marched for Johnstown, in the Mohawk Valley, where they arrived on the 4th (of June).

During the summer, they passed in the Mohawk Valley, at Johnstown, German Flats, Fort Dayton, and Fort Schuyler. They were engaged in erecting fortifications, protecting the inhabitants, and preventing the incursions of hostile Indians. At Ticonderoga and Mount Independence their duties were not less arduous, and by reason of the severity of the winter their sufferings were great.

Col. Anthony Wayne wrote to Gen. Horatio Gates on December 1 about the horrible conditions at Ticonderoga and Mount Independence: "We shall be hard set to get the Sick away: our Hospital, or rather House of Carnage, beggars all Description . . . The Cause is obvious; no Medicine or Regimen on the Ground suitable for the Sick; no Beds or Straw to lie on; no covering to keep them warm, other than their own wretched Clothing. We can’t send them to Fort George, as usual, the Hospital being removed from thence to Albany, and the Weather is so intensely cold, that before they would reach there they would perish."

On the 4th of December, 1776 Major Joseph Wood wrote to the Pennsylvania Council of Safety: "Of all this Army at this Place, which did consist of twelve or thirteen thousand Men, Sick and Well, no more than nine hundred Pair of Shoes have been sent. One-third at least of the poor Wretches is now barefoot, and in this Condition obliges to do Duty . . . The poor Creatures is now (what’s left alive) laying on the cold Ground, in poor thin Tents, and some none at all, and many down with Pleurisy."

Besides sick and dying soldiers, the forts’ commander, had to contend with regional antagonisms made manifest in innumerable ways. In February 1777, soldiers from the Third Jersey Regiment had to fight off soldiers from Pennsylvania, who intended to place their own dead in the newly dug graves.

It was not their fortune, during their period of service to be engaged on the battlefield, but in the discharge of the duties which devolved on them. They acquitted themselves with honor, and contributed their share toward the accomplishment of the final grand result of the war. On the 2nd of March 1777, the battalion stared on its march homeward. It arrived at Morristown on the 18th, and was there discharged on the 23rd.

How any of the young men of the Gloucester County militia survived such an ordeal is amazing. How Samuel survived, a man in his mid thirties is beyond belief. Lasting health consequences may have resulted from his brush with death. Samuel received Certificate No. 250, dated May 1, 1784, signed by Thomas Carpenter, for £3:3:9, for "the depreciation of his Continental pay" the Gloucester County Militia. (Adjutant General NJAFNG letter dated 30 Oct 1958) He apparently did not continue to serve in the period 1778-1780, as his name does not appear in List II of the Revolutionary Census of New Jersey and it is known that he was working at the Friendship Saltworks in 1780.

Samuel died intestate. Samuel’s death was presumably unexpected, when he died intestate in the summer of 1786. His widow Diadema was appointed administratrix on July 25. Three weeks later John Higbee (son of Edward and Jemima (Risley) Higbee) died and willed his son Absalom "the place where Samuel Strickland, deceased, did live." Samuel was about 45 and his children were still young at the time of his death. The NJ Census of 1784 shows Samuel farmed 12 acres of land, but a search of property records found nothing to indicate Samuel owned property. John Higbee probably had owned Samuel’s house for an extended period in that he mentioned specifically the adjoining salt meadow as land he had purchased from Robert Smith Sr. John Higbee’s wife, Mary (Smith) Higbee, was willed the use of his farm. Mary was the daughter of "Hunting John" and Mary (Smith) Smith of Long Island. Likely Diadema, Appolonia (age 16) and Asa (age 12) continued to live in the community, and perhaps they continued to live in the same house after it, and the adjoining salt meadow, were inherited by Absalom. Samuel’s son Israel married Mary "Polly" Doughty a month after his father’s death. A strange twist of fate demonstrates how the lives of the residents of this small community were intertwined. Absalom Leeds, presumably the grandfather of Catherine (Gale) Leeds first husband Absalom signed John Higbee’s will as a witness.

Michael Strickland of Cape May County. One might also speculate that if Diadema were Michael’s mother she would have died by the time Michael and his family moved to Ohio ca. 1806. Diadema’s Galloway Township children had reached adulthood by 1806. If Samuel and Diadema had a son Michael, he had moved to Upper Township, Cape May County as a young man. If he was a son, he truly was an anomaly because this Michael was a sophisticated man of substantial means in stark contrast to the Galloway Township Stricklands. The Galloway Township Stricklands seemed to have little of either sophistication or resources. Could a son of Samuel and Diadema, then in his 20s, acquire the education and financial backing sufficient to buy and sell large tracts of land in Cape May County and later in Clermont County, Ohio? The prospects are meager at best when the Galloway Township children could neither read nor write. Though the Michael was not a lawyer, his "trusty friend" Hugh Hawthorn was and they knew their way around the courthouse. Courthouse savvy is not what you would expect from a man whose parents and siblings were illiterate and middle class at most. In the early summer of 1806, as Michael was preparing to move to Ohio, he appointed Hawthorn his "lawful attorney," granting him Power of Attorney to act for him in all matters public and private. Michael had loaned money to people who had not repaid the loans and he specifically tasked Hawthorn to recover the debts owed by Jeremiah Vangilder ($165.75), John Vangilder ($300.00), Ezekiel Vangilder Jr. ($65.00), William Miller ($135.25) and Samuel Boner ($12.00).

Michael was a blacksmith at Jobs Point. September 13, 1790, the blacksmith shop and store burned down. He returned by land from Philadelphia via Little Egg Harbor and commenced work again on Nov. 5, 1790. From that date to Feb. 13th 1791, the work done at the blacksmith shop amounted to £22.0.0 - wages, board and material cost £18.9.5. He weighed 153 pounds on 3/12/1791.

Elinor Cullen, the wife of Michael, is said to have been born in Ireland ca 1775. The surname Cullen is not found in any of the early marriage records of the South Jersey vicinity leading to the speculation that she came to the area with Michael. In an indenture dated January 27, 1797, in which she is referred to and signs her name as Nely Strickland, they received 125 pounds in gold and silver money from Israel Stites for seven and a half acres of land in Upper Township, Cape May County. Even though the transaction occurred in 1797, it was not recorded until January 2, 1806. In another transaction, dated June 16, 1805, she and Michael sold forty-seven acres to William Miller for $1,100; she signed her name as Elenor Strickland. After moving to Clermont Co. Ohio, Elinor (Cullen) Strickland, was a member of the original "Bible Society" whose function was the distribution of religious literature, giving Bibles to her sons, Mark, Paul, Daniel, Hope; and her daughters, Sarah (Light), Betsy (Ogden), Maria (Mason), Harriet (McCall), and Hannah (Edwards); and many grandchildren. She died in Clermont County, June 15, 1860 at the age of Eighty-five.

Family Naming Patterns. During this period, families tended to name their children after family members. The Galloway Township descendants used Old Testament names such as Samuel, Eli, Israel and Asa as well as numerous Galloway Township siblings naming their children after Samuel and his Galloway Township sons. Michael seemed to prefer New Testament names like Paul, Mark and Elizabeth. Not once does the name Michael appear among the Galloway Township descendants of Samuel, nor on any records that they left. Michael married an Irish woman. We can speculate that any man finding an Irish woman in Galloway Township would have indeed been a rare occurrence because immigrants from Ireland did not appear in Atlantic or Cape May counties until after the 1790s. The name Cullen does not appear in any of the early marriage records for south Jersey. Upper Township in Cape May County and Galloway Township were separated by a days ride, a vast distance in 1790. Samuel’s Galloway Township descendants and their offspring tended to marry residents within walking distance of their homes.

Literacy. Michael and Elinor could read and write, but Samuel, Diadema and their Galloway Township descendants could not. Michael and Elinor’s signatures appear on many legal documents along with handwritten notes elaborating on items of interest. In contrast, Samuel, Diadema, their children, and many of their grand- children signed their names with an "X".

Early Historians. Byron Williams, in his History of Brown and Clermont County, Ohio (1913) states that "Michael Strickland, a native of England, who settled first at Cape May, New Jersey, and came to Clermont County in 1809, where he secured six hundred acres of land in Tate township" and this appears to be factual. Lillian Hitch Neisz in her NSDAR supplemental application (#543486) presumably made the connection between Michael the blacksmith in Jobs Point and Samuel the Revolutionary War solider. Around 1806 the New Jersey records no longer mentioned Michael(s) and Ohio records began to record Michael as part of the westward migration of South Jersey residents to this part of Ohio, known as the Jersey Settlement. The preponderance of evidence tilts heavily toward verifying Byron Williams’ 1913 statement and we are left to conclude that Michael was not a son of Samuel and Diadema. The evidence suggests that the Jobs Point blacksmith whose shop burned in 1790, was the same Michael Strickland conducting business in Cape May County a couple of years later. Further research may be able to lay this issue to rest.

Was the Samuel who served in War of 1812 the son of Israel and Mary "Polly" Doughty Strickland? In 1785, Benjamin Franklin returned to Philadelphia from France where he had signed the treaty ending the American Revolution. That year may have found two Samuel Stricklands in Galloway Township. The elder Samuel, the Revolutionary War soldier, will hereafter be referred to refer to as "RevSam." A Samuel Strickland appeared before a Justice of the Peace in 1850, saying he was the same Samuel Strickland who had served in the War of 1812. He said he was 67 years old making him a child two years of age in 1785. But, entries in the Willis Papers indicate there was a Samuel who was born March 22, 1787. (RevSam died in June of 1786) The context of the Willis entry leads this compiler to believe that this Samuel was a son of Israel. We will refer to him as "1812Sam." Several sources tell us that 1812Sam’s son Benjamin was related to RevSam’s son Israel, but how are they related? Of the Strickland males, RevSam, Michael the Cape May County blacksmith, and Israel were of fathering age. Since Benjamin and his family continued living amidst the Strickland enclave when the 1860 census was taken, Michael can be eliminated, leaving Israel and Samuel. Israel’s two sons, Eli Strickland and John Strickland, and his two sons in law (daughter Elizabeth Strickland’s husband, Jesse Parker and daughter Rebecca Strickland’s first husband, Joseph Bowen) served in the 1812 conflict. RevSam was really too old to be a serious contender and should the 3/22/1787 (Samuel’s birth date) be correct, little argument can be made for RevSam being 1812Sam’s father. In 1825, the 1812Sam married Catherine Gale (Leeds) an "Indian Woman," a widow with six children. Carrie Leeds in her "Descendents of Daniel Leeds" relates that Samuel Strickland (b. 1794) married Catherine C. Gale, (m. 9/25/1825) widow of Enoch Leeds, and adds that "Catherine was an Indian woman." Why would a man in his forties assume such an awesome responsibility; was it because his grandmother was an Indian? Had he known of his grandmother’s plight, an Indian woman, a widow with children, struggling after her husband died? Was 1812Sam’s grandmother Diadema, wife of SamRev? The 1812Sam’s stepdaughter (Sara Jane Leeds) was 13 when her mother Catherine and the 1812Sam were married. Catherine’s daughter Sara Jane later married Aaron Strickland, grandson of RevSam, who lived adjacent to the rest of the Strickland clan. The evidence is convincing: the 1812 Samuel is the son of Israel.

War of 1812. The memory of the devastation wrought by the British during the Revolution was all too fresh in the minds of the Leeds Point community when war with Great Britain was declared in 1812. Many in the community could well remember the British sacking and burning Chestnut Neck. Some residents of Chestnut Neck had moved to Leeds Point and Port Republic from Chestnut Neck after their town had been laid waste. Samuel’s grandsons Eli and John, as well as his granddaughter Elizabeth Strickland’s husband Jesse Parker, and granddaughter Rebecca Strickland’s first husband Joseph Bowen, were also part of Captain Robert Smith’s Second Battalion of Artillery. The Artillery Company was formed to man a canon emplacement guarding the Egg Harbor River entrance. Protecting the community from British attack was a family affair. RevSam’s son, Asa served in the War, though not in the local artillery unit. Although members of the Militia Artillery Company served for only 15 months, they qualified for government land grants in the western states. The 1812Sam qualified for a land grant by virtue of his Militia service. The 1812Sam volunteered in the Second Company on the 18th day of June 1812, and was discharged in December 1813. He signed with: Samuel "X" Stricklin. He was 67 years old when he appeared before the Atlantic County Justice of the Peace to have the land grant affidavit prepared.

1860 Census. The United States Census of 1860 provides insight into the Atlantic County community in which the Stricklands lived. Atlantic County (set apart from Gloucester County February 7, 1837) was divided into five Townships: Egg Harbor, Weymouth, Hamilton, Mullica and Galloway. Galloway township was divided into four enumeration districts: Absecon Post Office, Leeds Point Post Office, Unionville (now Port Republic) Post Office and Egg Harbor City Post Office. That census reveals:

Conclusion. More study will be necessary to conclusively prove Samuel and Diadema, and Michael and Elinor were the progenitors of two separate Strickland lines. The information currently available leads this compiler to conclude these lines are indeed separate. Yet to be determined is where Samuel and Diadema originated. Michael and Elinor probably were recent immigrants. Michael was what we would view today as a mover and shaker. The Cape May family’s wealth, education, and move to Ohio left no ties to South Jersey. Michael may have been loyal to the Crown, making his life in a hot bed of Revolutionary fervor less than pleasant. By contrast the Galloway Township family had little education, few possessions, and was resolutely committed to their small tight knit community. These families lived in turbulent times. Michael and his family moved to the edge of the wilderness. Samuel, Diadema, Eli, Appolonia and Asa were immersed in the birth of our nation. This obscure Galloway Township family did not find its way into history books. But, their strength typifies that of the men and women who are too often forgotten when heroes are named.

Descendants Reports. The following descendants report reflects Samuel and Michael’s lines as separated.

 

Descendants of Michael Strickland

Generation No. 1

1. MICHAEL1 STRICKLAND was born about 1765, and died March 08, 1851 in Clermont Co. OH. He married ELINOR CULLEN who was born ca. 1775 in Ireland, and died June 15, 1860 in Tate Twp., Clermont Co., OH.

Notes for MICHAEL STRICKLAND:

Mentioned in books for the period 1795-1798 in NJ. He was a blacksmith at Jobs Point (a point of land located on the banks of the Great Egg Harbor River, in southern Atlantic County, across the river from Cape May County). September 13, 1790 the blacksmith shop and store burned down. He returned by land from Philadelphia via Little Egg Harbor and commenced work again on Nov. 5, 1790.

Taken from the 1913 History of Brown and Clermont County, Ohio by Byron Williams:

The paternal Great-grandfather of our subject, Michael Strickland, a native of England, who settled first at Cape May, New Jersey, and came to Clermont County in 1809, where he secured six hundred acres of land in Tate township and erected the first brick house on Popular creek, in 1811. Michael Strickland was a fine mechanic and could construct almost any article made with tools. A fine stone sundial made by him is still in existence. He was also an extensive farmer and stockman and took great pleasure in transforming the wilderness of his possessions into a valuable property. He spent the remaining years of his life in Clermont County, where his death occurred March 8, 1851, at the age of eighty-seven.

Occupation: blacksmith, according to Stewart’s Genealogy & History Misc.

Religion: Methodist

Notes for ELINOR CULLEN:

Elinor (Cullen) Strickland, was a member of the original "Bible Society" whose function was the distribution of religious literature, giving Bibles to her sons, Mark, Paul, Daniel, Hope; and her daughters, Sarah (Light), Betsy (Ogden), Maria (Mason), Harriet (McCall), and Hannah (Edwards); and many grandchildren. She was a native of Ireland, and her death also occurred in Clermont County, June 15, 1860 at the age of eighty-five.

In an indenture dated January 27, 1797, she is referred to and signs her name as Nely Strickland. She and her husband received 125 pounds in gold and silver money from Israel Stites for seven and a half acres of land in Cape May (NJ) County. Even though the transaction occurred in 1797 it was not recorded until January 2, 1806. (Cape May Deed Book E, p. 19-20). In another transaction, dated June 16, 1805, she and Michael sold forty-seven acres to William Miller for $1,100; she signed her name as Elenor Strickland. (Cape May Co. Deed Book D, p. 348-349.)

He married Amelia Anderson in Brown Co., OH on 12 May 1823. According to Toph, the family moved to Indiana in 1838 and settled in Ripley Co. Paul’s sister Hannah, who had married the Rev. Moses C. Edwards, also settled there. According to Mr. Shaw, "I came to old Ripley in the fall of 1841 with my father from Ohio. New Marion, on the Michigan road, was the first town we came to in the County. There was a little steam mill and carding machine there, owned by Paul Strickland, a hotel by M.C. Edwards and one by Evan Miles, and a doctor’s office by Lot Edwards." Steam mills had just come into existence in the late 1830’s. In the 1850 census he is listed as being a miller with $3000 worth of real estate. In the 1860 Census the family is listed in Crawford Co. Boon Twp, however, they moved back by the 1870 census. He died after 1880 and is buried in the New Marion Baptist Cemetery but no cemetery listing or death dates can be found.

Notes for DIADEMA BAREMORE:

From a note written by Kim Lingelback: There has been a family story for years that there was an Indian in the family somewhere. Everyone thought it was probably during the 1850’s, but it was just one of those stories that everyone knew about but was the "scandal". .. has a written firsthand story by someone who knew Anna, (Note: Anna Marine Hewitt) Martha’s (Note; Martha Ann Strickland wife of David Hewitt) daughter and they call her a "full blooded Absegami Indian". There are references to them calling her Nanna throughout the whole thing. I think that, whoever interviewed Anna, heard about the Indian story and wanted to find its roots. They researched only the family line straight back to Samuel and Diadema and stopped. There are other family lines in the area back to that era but they did not do those. This is just a supposition. Efforts to find who wrote the history have been unsuccessful.

Carrie Leeds in her "Descendants of Daniel Leeds" relates that Samuel Strickland (b. 1794) married Catherine C. Gale, (m. 9/25/1825) widow of Jonathan Leeds, . . ."Catherine was an Indian woman".

War With Great Britain 1812-1815

Captain Robert Smith’s Company of Artillery

Third Regiment, Gloucester Brigade

The company was organized February 12, 1809, and was attached to the Second Battalion, Third Regiment, Gloucester Brigade, New Jersey Militia, and having volunteered "for the protection of the maritime frontier" in accordance with section 8 of the Militia law of February 12, 1814, was ordered into service during the War of 1812-15 by Governor Pennington. In this call for troops made by the Governor for duty at Smithville, Gloucester (now Atlantic) county, and was stationed at Leeds Point and Somers Point and at other places on the seacoast between Little Egg Harbor and Great Egg Harbor rivers. The enemy attempted to land at Somers Point on one occasion and the company was called out to repel them. They appear to have had but one continuous tour of duty, which was from May 1 to June 29, 1814, and for which they were paid by the State, by act of the Legislature, February 8, 1816; but during all the rest of the year they were always "prepared for actual service on any sudden emergency" and were called out several times by alarms along the coast for the immediate defense of the State. They were finally discharged at the close of the war at Smithville, February 19, 1815.

A note from June Sheridan ACHS:

Samuel Strickland appears in the 1830 Census (Galloway Twp.) and appears as between 40-50 yr. old. SAMUEL STRICKLAND, PVT 1812 was born ca. 1784. He married CATHERINE C. GALE. She was born in NJ.

His wife is 30-40 yr. and there are 3 girls 15-20 yr.; 1 girl, 10-15; 1 girl, 5 or under; 1 boy, 5 and under. Don’t think this is the Rev. soldier Samuel. He’d be much older, even if they did tell age lies back then. He appears again in the 1840 Census as 40-50 yr.; wife, 40-50 yr.; 1 girl 10 -15 yr.; 1 boy 5-10 yr. The 1850 Census shows a Samuel Stricklin living in Galloway Twp aged 64 years, with a wife, Catharine, aged 61 years and a son, Benjamin, aged 20 years. This is the same Strickland family as the previous Censuses. The 1860 Census doesn’t have a Samuel Strickland, so it appears that he died sometime between 1850 and 1860. This is the Samuel Stricklan (sic) who married Catharine Leeds 9/27/1825.

Captain Robert Smith’s Company of Artillery

The company was organized February 12, 1809, and was attached to the Second Battalion, Third Regiment, Gloucester Brigade, New Jersey Militia, and having volunteered "for the protection of the maritime frontier" in accordance with section 8 of the Militia law of February 12, 1814, was ordered into service during the War of 1812-15 by Governor Pennington. In this call for troops made by the Governor for duty at Smithville, Gloucester (now Atlantic) county, and was stationed at Leeds Point and Somers Point and at other places on the seacoast between Little Egg Harbor and Great Egg Harbor rivers. The enemy attempted to land at Somers Point on one occasion and the company was called out to repel them. They appear to have had but one continuous tour of duty, which was from May 1 to June 29, 1814, and for which they were paid by the State, by act of the Legislature, February 8, 1816; but during all the rest of the year they were always "prepared for actual service on any sudden emergency" and were called out several times by alarms along the coast for the immediate defense of the State. They were finally discharged at the close of the war at Smithville, February 19, 1815.
