What is the connection between Pearl Strickland and the Figures surname? I am trying to find a connection between the Strickland and Figures families because I have an ancestor g-g-grandfather by the name Figures Strickland and have never been able to locate his parents' names. I thought perhaps his given name was maiden name of his mother or a grandmother. Can you offer any help? Thank you for a response. Your Perle Strickland info appeared in the Figures Family Forum. Was that a mistake? No mention was made of Figures in your message.
