Benjamin Strickler, Northumberland, 1850
I hope someone on this list might be of help to me. I have a census record i looked up. I went to a library
that has all the Census for Pa. and found a census that fits my gr. gr. gr. grandfather, maybe! There were two Benjamin
Strickler's listed but the one I am interested in is in Northumberland Co., Sunbury Twp. for 1850. It lists:
Benjamin Strickler, 45 m.
Rebecca Strickler, 30 F.
Jacob Strickler, 24 m.
Mary Strickler, 22 f.
Fanny Strickler, 17 f.
Henry Strickler, 14 m
Samuel Strickler, 12 m.
Sarah Strickler, 1 f.
Barbara Geingrich, 17 f
Jacob Hollenback, 14 m
Daniel Beaker, 18 m., Laborer
Now, I was wondering if anyone has any information on this family? I am pretty sure that Mary is my gr. gr.
grandmother. The date fits pretty close, and some of the children.
There is a Benjamin in the 1860 Census for Pa. But the dates don't match this family. Also has a wife named Rebecca. So,
I'm really getting confused on this family. Also, my family always thought the Strickler's lived on an island on the
Susquehanna river, and today, I found in Northumberland Co., that Floyd's History shows a Strickler family owned an
island on the Susquehanna river. Maybe this will help narrow it down. But, Floyd doesn't list the person's full name.
Hope someone can help me on this Benjamin Strickler family. Thanks so much. Linda
