Welcome to Historic Galloway, The Current’s weekly feature that looks back through Galloway Township history. Each week we get a chance to learn or reminisce courtesy of Sarah Snow, librarian for the Galloway Township Historical Society, who shares information and early photos online and in print.
John Strickland, 1792-1855, was a lifelong Leeds Point resident. He is seen here with what appears to be milled lumber, perhaps from the nearby Shourds Lumber Mill. Strickland was a carpenter. He and his wife, Sarah, had eight surviving children who inherited his 22 acres in Leeds Point.
