Moses Strahan Jr. had 10 children. I have a letter dated 1929 that list four daughters and four sons. Both Moses jR. and his wife died in 1833. Their OLDEST SON Andrew Jackson went by horseback to Attala Co. Mississippi. He carried everything he owned in his saddlebags. In this letter some of the children lived with their uncle Asa and some with their Uncle Neil. There is a lot of confusion as to the children of Moses Jr. I will try to get some of this straightened out. Moses Jr. had five sons. Andrew Jackson, born 9 Feb 1817. The letter I have states that he is the eldest son, which means that James Strahan born in 1814 or 1815 could not be his brother. I believe that this James Strahan that married Rebecca Perry is the son of Noah Strahan or Asa strahan. THE letter also states that Andrew Jacson had a brother named James. I believe that this is a William James Strahan born in 1818. Some of the Strahan Researchers are trying to add William Moses Strahan son of Asa to Moses Jr. children. William Moses was also born in 1818 and he married Martha Barlow and thet lived in Copiah Co. Mississippi. Moses Jr. five sons are Andrew Jackson(1817),William James(1818),One son born in 1820,Manuel (1822), and Franklin in (1827). The five daughters are Rebecca(1815), Lucy(1819),A daughter between (1823 and 1825) Sarah (April 1,1826),and Margret(1828). The only Strahan male that I have been able to locate who was born in 1820 was Edward R. Strahan Who was in the 1840 St. Tammany Parris Louisiana census. Next to Elijah Strahan. I have not located the fifth daughter.
Franklin Strahan was living with his brother A.J. in Attala co. in 1850. He went with his brother Manuel to Texas in 1852 and was there for a few years after that he moved back to Louisiania and was living with his sister Lucy Fortner in Catahoula Parrish, La. in (1860). Franklin married Martha Pentecost Dec 29 1865. She was a widow of William Pentecost and she had four children. Eliza(1854), John (1856),Lucy Anne (1861), and William (1865). Franklin and Martha had three children.
