The following is from a document prepaired by the Democratic Historical Association, Inc. circa 1937. It is a draft of a personal history of Dr. James Lawrence Stringfellow, MD. b. 14 AUG 1887 in Culpeper, VA. and died 4 JUN 1982 in Culpeper, VA.

"Dr. James Lawrence Stringfellow, an active and successful menber of the medical profession in Culpeper, was born in Culpeper County, Virginia August 14, 1887. He is a sicon of one of the old and honored families of Northern Virginia, tracing his ancestry back through four generations to Robert Stringfellow, who was a farmer and died in Fauquier county. He was the father of James Lawrence Stringfellow, who was born in Fauquier county and became a farmer and slave owner. The latter gave his political allegiance to the democratic party and died in Culpeper county. His wife, who bore the maiden name of Harriet Ficklin, was born in Fredricksburg and passed away in Culpeper county. They were the parents of Thornton Stringfellow, father of Dr. Stringfellow of this review. Born in Culpeper county August 26, 1863, Thornton Stringfellow passed away in Charlottsville in 1923 [sic 10 MAY 1923]. He had spent his active life as a planter, was a supporter of the democratic party and a member of the Baptist Church. He married Cora Bell Ewing, who was born in Botetourt county, Virginia, September 26, 1859, and died in Culpeper in 1931 [sic 15 MAR 1931]. She was the daughter of Daniel Price and Mollie (Woods) Ewing. Her father was born in Botetourt county and gave up his studies at the University of Virginia to volunteer for service in the Confederate Army, thus serving when death claimed him at age of twenty-one years. His wife was a native of Albemarle county and died in Culpeper county."
