There were 2 Mathew Stricklands in the late 1600's, father and son. Father's name is always spelled Mathew and son's name is always spelled Matthew, Jr. The father died before 8/4/1699 probably in Isle of Wight Co. VA. Jr. died before 10/25/1730 also probably in Isle of Wight Co. VA but could have been in Bertie Precinct NC where he owned land also.
One Jacob's wife was Priscilla. This Jacob (son of Jacob, son of Matthew, Jr.) was born about 1725 probably in Isle of Wight Co. VA and died 4/25/1804 in Elbert Co. GA. His father Jacob moved from VA to Edgecombe Co. NC where he lived until his death between 8/18/1788 and May, 1790 probably in Nash Co. NC where his will was probated. I have not researched Jacob and Priscilla much so I do not have when they left the Nash Co. area. Supposedly they moved to another co. in NC before moving to GA but I haven't confirmed that.
What I would really like to find in the Madison Co. GA area is where Kinchen Strickland's land was. When he died he had left the house he lived in to his son Kinchen Milton with 2 rooms to be left for the use of Kinchen Milton's stepmother Sarah until her death. I suspect Kinchen and Kinchen Milton were probably buried on this land.
Here are relevant deeds.

1840 tax list he owned 1040 acres in Madison Co. and 490 acres in Appling Co.
Kinchen Milton is listed on the 1880 Madison Co. GA census in Danielsville. He died either in 1893 or 1896 so is not on the 1900 census. His wife Lettie died 5/5/1920 and is buried at Moon's Grove Church in Madison Co. I do not know where this is, and if you could find this church and search the church records this would be helpful.It is possible Kinchen Milton is buried there too, but I doubt it.
I had a short time in Madison Co. when I went there to research, so I didn't pull Kinchen Milton's deeds nor did I look for will or estate records for him. It would be helpful to do this.
I have info on the descendants of Kinchen and of Kinchen Milton.And of course my book has this line back 4 generations before Kinchen. Let me know if you need further info.
