    Notes 
    • "(Born February 29, 1876) on the banks of the Sabine River in old Sabinetown, where they ran a ferry. It was in hard times of reconstruction days, with lawlessness rampant, and the Stricklands early learned to fight their way through hard times and rough days...When Dee was about 7 years old, his father had trouble with a drunk who pulled him out of bed and started fighting. Following this trouble, John moved his family to Orange. Dee Strickland moved back to Sabine County and married Luvenia Walker. Two of their three children survive: Mrs. Thelma Strickland Lakey of California and Mrs. L.C. Crouch of Houston. The Stricklands moved around to sawmilling, and lived in Rusk when Mrs. Strickland died. Dee came back to Pineland and worked for a month at the mill there; became restless and spent three years in Louisiana before returning to Sabine County, where he married Miss Zilpha Lott. Dee farmed and worked for Temple Lumber Company until his retirement a few years ago. He is the father of ten children by his second marriage. They are Mrs. Gladys Stevens of Houston, J.B. Strickland who is deceased, Mrs. Miriam Amason of Pineland, Robert Strickland of Wyoming, Herbert Strickland of Kirbyville, J.D. Strickland whereabouts unknown at present, A.W. Strickland of Dallas, Mrs. Claudine Hamilton of Beaumont, Mrs. Arlene Fields of Dallas, and Darwin Strickland who is in the US Army stationed in Nebraska. There are 23 grandchildren and 11 great grandchildren." Excerpted from OLD TIMERS OF SABINE COUNTY, TEXAS by Virgie Speights (S. Malone Printer, San Augustine, Texas; 1983; original column published November 19, 1964).
