Hi...My name is Melanie Southerland Pearce...my mother's name was Margaret Myrtle Shookman, her mother (?) was Elsie Pearl Strickland.....Elsie (my grandmother) father's name was Collie Strickland....He died after 1910 and before 1920. Elsie and her surving sibling Johnnie Lee Strickland were both raised by my great Aunt (Elsie's Aunt) Pearle Smith and husband Charles Smith (both buried in Clanson Mem Park in Dierks). I am a bit confused as to how you are related to Collie Strickland. The ONLY surving children from Collie Strickland were Elsie Pearl and Johnnie Lee!
