Wylie J. Strickland
1820 - 2/21/1863
His daughter, Josephine stated in the 1880 census that her father was born in Alabama and her mother was born in Georgia. At this time we do not know the identity of Josephine's parents. Past down in the family is the Knight name, that appears as her name on her son, Henry's death certificate,
But in 1942 her son, stated her name is Josephine Strickland on his SSN application.
Our guess is he maybe Wylie J. Strickland. He married P. Elizabeth Segers and they had two children, Josephine and Henry. Wylie enlisted with the 39th Alabama Infantry Regiment, CO. D. and died in 1863.
