General Notes: Husband – Thomas + Strickland


Judy Berndt notes that Thomas STRICKLAND was one of the first STRICKLANDS in
MO, marrying Eliza SHOCK in Boone Co. MO in 1826. The family record of Judy
Berndt names his mother as Zilpha SLOCUMB.

“The Thomas Stricklin family Bible in possession of Louise Stabler descendant
identifies the family unit and locates them Boone County, MO.”
Judy Berndt 2001 June 23 email

“Family tradition said he came from TN and census list birth place as TN
Written recollection from grandchildren of age to know first hand have named
his Mother as Zelpha Slocum. The History of Slocum, Slocumbs of America book
coming from the other direction said unnamed daughter of Joseph Slocumb
married Thomas Strickland. Census NC 1790 show Thomas Strickland and Joseph
Slokum to be very close neighbors.”

McKenney Bible Images

Thanks to my cousins for sending photocopies of these pages to me.

Lloyd McKenney’s bible was used for recording some family history. I didn’t see it until about 2003. The genealogy I received as a child wasn’t in the bible, it was instead on loose paper, but in the case of the Hackney and McKenney families it was much as in the bible. The Crockett’s went back more generations.

We have a page recording the bible was a gift from a Rev. Paul Barth of the First Luther Church of Ponca City, Oklahoma in 1944.

All the below images link to larger images.

The below page records a brief history of Samuel and Sadie Elizabeth Hackney Crockett, written by Sadie on Sep 29, 1931, transcribed by Lloyd into the bible.

The below page is Lloyd’s recording of the McKenney line from George W. McKenney and Isabel. A good bit of info was missing on the family at that time.

The below page concerns again the Hackneys and also the Crocketts.

Lloyd notes a trip made to Tennessee to try to verify the Crockett genealogy.

Lloyd writes of the gift of the bible to him and that his sister, Thelma, had it rebound for him.

Lloyd’s notes on bible verses.

Gladys and Bernice Brockey and Judy Berndt

These images are courtesy of Judy Berndt. I don’t know which woman is Gladys and which is Bernice but the photo would have to be before 1989 as Gladys Brockey (married to James Arthur Tresner, 1922 Oct 16) died 1989 Feb 7 in Jonesburg, Chautauqua, Kansas. Both were daughters of Nathaniel Brockey and Elouise Crockett. Elouise’s parents were James Kelly Crockett and Millie Ann Stricklin.

James Kelly Crockett and Millie Ann Stricklin

The following was written Sept 29 1931 by Sadie Hackney CROCKETT, wife of Samuel Kelly.

“Samuel Kelly Crockett was born in Boone Co. MO on Oct 6 1855. His father moved his family to Chautauqua Co. Kans in 1871 and from which time his home has been in the above named county.

“Sarah Elizabeth Hackney was born in Van Buren Iowa, Dec. 4, 1857. Her father moved his family to Chautauqua Co. Kans in the year 1872. Then to Montgomery Co. KS in 1876 and to Washington Co. Kansas in 1878 and in this last named county Samuel Kelly Crockett and Sarah Elizabeth Hackney were married on Dec. 21 1882. Came to Chautauqua Co. immediately following the marriage and have made their home here. In this Co., their eight children were born, Six of whom lived to maturity.”

James Kelly CROCKETT, son of James Reyburn CROCKETT and Elouisa WRIGHT, was b. 21 Sept 1832 at Boone Co. MO and died 12 Oct. 1909 in Chautauqua Co. KS. at the age of 77.

James died in a fire that destroyed the Old Crockett Farmhouse. He is buried at the El Cado Cemetery in Chautauqua.

On 28 Sept 1852 in MO, James married Millie Ann STRICKLIN, daughter of Thomas STRICKLIN and Elizabeth SHOCK. Millie was 16 and James was 20.

Millie was born 12 Dec. 1835 in Boone Co. MO and died 29 Nov. 1910 in Chautauqua Co. KS. at the age of 74. Papers provided my family also give Millie as born in Audrain County, 10 miles southwest of Mexico, MO. She is buried at the El Cado Cemetery.

James was a farmer.

Papers provided by family give James as born in Boone County Missouri, Northeast of Columbia.

Lloyd Clinton MCKINNEY wrote the CROCKETTS had a farm near Nevada MO (borders Kansas, in Vernon County) just prior the Limestone Prairie farm in Chautauqua Co. KS, which he said was located fifteen miles across the border from Fort Scott in Kansas and about as many miles above Liberal Mo.

Notes taken from when I was a teenager gives the Crocketts as moving from Nevada MO to Sedan KS in 1871.

James and Millie were married 57 years.

They had 7 children. All the children of James and Millie were said to have been born in the same house on a farm in Boone Co. MO, known as Two Mile Prairie:

  1. Martha Eliza “Mattie” CROCKETT b. 3 July 1853 in Boone County, Missouri, d. 10 July 1929 in Chautauqua County, Kansas. Married to William Fillard LEMMON 1877 May 20 in Chautauqua County. I will cover this family in another post
  2. Samuel Kelly CROCKETT, b. 6 Oct 1855 in Boone County, Mo., died 10 or 20 March 1934 in KS., married Sarah Elizabeth HACKNEY 1882 Dec 21 in , Washington County, Kansas. Direct line. This family is covered in another post.
  3. James Quentin (Quenton) CROCKETT b. 15 Jan 1858 in Boone County, Missouri, d. 15 Jan 1884 in Chautauqua County, Kansas. 1883 Feb 14 he married Catherine (Katie) GRAHAM, daughter of John Daniel Graham and Cynthenia Ann Brewer (not linked with the Noyes Brewers, as far as I am aware). John Graham’s parents were Jospeh Graham and Nancy, and another child of theirs was Nancy, born 1841 Feb 16 in Illinois, who married Wilson William McKenzie on 1866 Jan 21 in Iola, Allen, Kansas. Wilson McKenzie’s parents were Joseph McKenzie and Sarah Love. The Pershalls married into both the McKenzie and Stricklin familes. I will write of this elsewhere.
  4. John Keithly CROCKETT b. 11 July 1861 in Missouri, d. 5 April 1893. It’s likely he died in Chautauqua County. He never married and had no children.
  5. Elouise “Louisa” Rebecca CROCKETT b. 2 Nov. 1870 in Boone County, Missouri, d. 2 Feb. 1827 at 57 in Chautauqua County, Kansas, married (1) William FOSTER on 1895 Jan 5 (he apparently died before 1900) and then (2) Nathaniel BROCKEY on 1901 Nov 28 in Chautauqua County, Kansas. I may cover this family in another post.
  6. Sallie Blanche CROCKETT was born 6 March 1876 in Missouri and died 5 July 1897 in Kansas, likely in Chautauqua County.
