Thank you oh so much, Lisajean, this fills in a lot of gaps about my family, I have an old mantel clock that my grandfather (Wm D.) was to have gotten from his grandfathers homestead (appears to be Wilson) back in the day, and it was in pieces. Now I have a name to go with the clock (and yes the clock works but have yet to have it appraised) as well as his son's (Thomas J) pocketwatch (That works as well). Also was told that my Uncle Ed Strickland was raised as a brother to my grandfather, and now I see his mother was a widow andraised with his mothers family! Again thank you so much!! How or are you related in all this?
