John STRAHAN and his wife Naomi were residing in Effingham Co. as early as 1794 as proved by his signature on various petitions. His brother, Moses STRAHAN, also resided in the county and was married to Rachael HOWARD. About 1812/13 John STRAHAN acquired a passport of he and his family to move to the western country. He is enumerated on the 1816 Hancock Co., MS census; he died 1845 Marion Co., MS.
