Minerva & Elizb POPPELL m STRICKLAND, FL
Posted by: John E Mellick Date: July 26, 1999 at 15:43:58
  of 201

Two marriages found in the Jefferson Co, FL, marriage books:
Minerva POPPELL & Vincent J. STRICKLAND - Apr 16, 1832 - Bk A pg 6, and
Elizabeth POPPELL & John STRICKLAND - Jan 1, 1832.

Who was Elizabeth POPPELL? Were Elizabeth and Minerva sisters?

Vincent and Minerva STRICKLAND are found in the 1850 census of Jefferson Co, FL (h/h 117/117):
STRICKLAND, Vincent 47 M SC
STRICKLAND,Manerva 37 F GA
STRICKLAND,Pharaoh 13 M FL
STRICKLAND,Nathan W. 11 M FL
STRICKLAND,Thomas R. 9 M FL
STRICKLAND,Perry 7 M FL
STRICKLAND,Doriam 5 M FL
STRICKLAND,Angeline 2 F FL

Next door was another family (h/h 118/118):
GRICE, Wiley 25 M
GRICE,Elizabeth 34 F
STRICKLAND, Jane 16 F
STRICKLAND,Jourdan 13 M
STRICKLAND,Doram 11 F
STRICKLAND,Sophia 8 F
STRICKLAND,MaryAnn 3 F

I wonder if this Elizabeth is the same as the Elizabeth POPPELL who married John STRICKLAND, and if John STRICKLAND was gone and she had married Wiley GRICE?

Can anyone confirm that this second family includes the children of John and Manerva (POPPELL) STRICKLAND, and suggest what might have happened to John STRICKLAND?

WFT CD-10 shows Minerva POPPELL d/o Pharaoh POPPELL & Temperance GANDY, and gd/o John POPWELL and Mary PURVIS. Elizabeth POPPELL was not mentioned in this tree. Were Elizabeth and Minerva sisters?

I have additional info on Wylie and Elizabeth GRICE’s children.
