STRIPLIN

Descendants of Joel Striplin

Generation No. 1

1. JOEL STRIPLIN was born 1680 in England or VA, and died September 14, 1718 in Saint Paul's Parrish.

Notes for JOEL STRIPLIN:

From a genealogical quarterly, "Pea River Trails" Vol. 21 Spring 1996, No 1* By Pea River Historical & Genealogical Society, P.O. Box 628 (108 S. Main Street) , Enterprise, AL 36331-0628

Mrs. Faye M. Carl Griffin has compiled a great deal of data on the Striplin-Stripling-Stribling families, which she has donated to the Pea River Historical Society Library. It is a consensus of opinion that these are one and the same families, and that the spelling of the name changed at some time as they migrated from one place to another. Joel Stribling/Striplin migrated to America, most probably from England, ca 1680; while another source said he was born in VA in 1680 and died 9/14/1718 as is shown in the Register of Saint Paul's Parish.

Notes for JOEL CRAWFORD HOLCOMBE:

Joel Crawford was living near Corinth Station, Newton County, GA when his fourth child, William Thomas Holcombe, was born on the 6th of May 1842. He moved to DeKalb County, GA and was living there when his fifth child, Andrew Glen Holcombe, was born on January 13, 1844. He moved to Talladega County, AL in 1845 or 1846 and is included in the 1850 census for Talladega County, AL. He lived near the town of Mumford. Information from the Holcombe Family Tree, Nation Builders compiled and published in 1947 by Elizabeth Weir McPherson. "Joel Crawford was licensed as an exhorter in the Methodist Church in Talladega Circuit in 1848, 1849, 1853 and 1854. He also preached in AR, often three times on a Sunday after leading a class meeting." Joel and his sons enlisted in the Confederate Army at Decatur, Morgan County, AL. It is unknown why they enlisted in Morgan County which is a long distance from their home in Talladega County. The Holcombes were not slave owners, so there was some other motivation for Joel and five of his sons to join the Confederate Army. Joel was wounded in the log and years later had the leg amputated. One of his twin sons, Hiram was killed at the battle at Vicksburg. Another son, William Thomas, was taken prisoner. In 1870, Joel and his family (except the oldest son, Joel Alexander) moved to Howard County, AR near the town of Center Point. Joel and son, William Thomas had a wood and iron shop making plows, wagons, and furniture. In 1875, Joel became incapacitated because of the war wound and in 1877 had his leg amputated below the knee. Joel was Postmaster in Picayune, AR in 1882. Joel died in Howard County, AR in 1892 and is buried in the Bluff Springs Cemetery near Nashville, Howard County, AR. His grave is marked with a Confederate Army headstone.

Notes for REV. BENJAMIN OLIVER STRIPLIN:

DEATH AND OBITUARY NOTICES FROM THE SOUTHERN CHRISTIAN ADVOCATE, 1867-1878 Aug. 12, 1870

"Reverand B. O. Striplin was born on the 15th of August 1788 in York District, South Carolina, and died 19th June 1870, in Cleberne Co., Alabama. He returned to his native State where he married to Miss Elizabeth R. Steward, who preceded him to the Glory World many years ago."

Taken from Randolph County, Alabama, Sixty Two Years Ago The Red Man's Home, The White Man's Eden by J.M.K. Guinn 1894-1896

"Rev. Ben Striplin, Uncle Ben, and he was usually called, and an indispensable necessity at camp meetings. Father lived at Chulafinnee in 1842, and I remember as if it were yesterday, mother took me with her to camp meetings the stand had been burned down and a new one raised on the same spot, but by some oversight the charcoal and ashes had not been properly cleaned off before services began. It was on Friday when mother and I got there. We took dinner at Dr. John Wesley Hudson's tent,and at the afternoon services we were in attendance. Services had, however, been going on for a day or two previously and were seemingly cold and discouraging; notwithstanding the warm zeal and earnest pleas of the preacher it would have passed for a Quaker meeting. The ministers and tenters could be seen gathered in groups earnestly engaged in conversation. There were all kinds of surmising as to the cause and as many theories for resuscitating Methodist zeal and activity. Mother was one of those persons who believed that "where there is a will there is generally a way," and as she used to say; "I never cross a bridge until I get to it." I heard her laughingly say to Dr. Hudson: "Just put Uncle Ben Striplin up this evening and you will see your troubles removed and Methodists go to work." Uncle Ben was put up, took his text and in a few minutes warmed up, and with a voice that echoed from hill to hill, said: "What, a thousand souls going to hell for the want of a little straw, brethern?" Suffice it to say, that evening before sun-down, which was Friday wagons with great loads of straw rolled in, and that night the alter was filled with shouting Methodists and converts, and such clapping of hands, shouting, singing, praying hallelujah, with tears trickling down the cheeks of Uncle Ben as he stood in the pulpit looking down in the altar, the writer hopes never to forget."

Children of BENJAMIN STRIPLIN and ELIZABETH STEWART are:

i. WILLIAM ANDERSON6 STRIPLIN.

ii. JOHN STRIPLIN.

iii. SAMUEL OLIVER STRIPLIN.

iv. REBECCA STRIPLIN.

v. PELLIE STRIPLIN.

vi. ELIZABETH "BETSY" STRIPLIN, b. 1815; m. JOHNATHAN LATTIMORE, August 09, 1936, Calhoun CO., AL.

vii. FRANCES STRIPLIN.

viii. MATILDA A. STRIPLIN, b. March 14, 1834, Benton Co, now Calhoun Co, AL; d. January 31, 1914, Cherokee Co., TX; m. RICHARD B. TREADAWAY, Abt. 1854, Randolph Co., AL; b. August 18, 1832, GA; d. December 28, 1885, Cherokee Co., TX.

Notes for MATILDA A. STRIPLIN: Randolph County Court House burned 1897 and all records were lost therefore no marriage record has been found.

When Elizabeth died Matilda took over the rearing of her children. When her grandson Will French lost his wife in 1900 Matilda again took over the rearing of his two younger children. Three generations she raised.

The 1900 census shows that Matilda had a 7th child who apparently died in early childhood and it's name is unknown.

Notes for RICHARD B. TREADAWAY:

They were in the Calhoun County, AL census in 1860 and they moved to Cherokee Co., TX around 1868 and remained there

Both R. B. and Matilda appear to have been fairly educated for the time and were very active members of the Pleasant Grove Baptist Church near Maydelle in Cherokee County.
