Chris, there was a Calvin Strickland in Duplin Co, NC in the 1850 census with his father and mother Richard Strickland and Catherine Frederick. Also in the family were his brother and sister: Major, Barbara, and a seven year old lad names Amos Johnston. Calvin, according to my records married Priscilla Ann Stokes on 27 Jan 1853. There was also a Calvin Strickland in Johnston Co. whose father was a Wash Strickland. Calvin had a son Herman Strickland who lived here in Burgaw NC. Hope this will help.
