I am searching for my Striplin/Stripling ancestors. My great grandfather was Christopher Columbus Striplin born in Benton Count, Ark. Recently found information that his mother may have been Rosanna "Annie" Hill born in (White) Tennessee. She married John W. Striplin born abt 1825 in TN or Illinois. They also had William T. Striplin b. May 1849, James Henry Striplin, b. abt 1851 in Ark., and Francis triplin b. abt 1854 in Ark. William T. married Esther Ann Ashly. They had Thomas, James "Henry" and John Wesley Sriplin. My grandfather's name was also John Wesley Striplin. I have found part of my family on census records with last name spelled Striplin and Stripling.
