"Peggy Strother's parents were George (1732-1767) and Mary Kennerly Strother (1746-1834), originally of Culpeper County (the part that later became Rappahannock). When George died, Mary married (1770) Patrick Lockhart, a notable frontiersmen and they migrated to Botetourt County and Fincastle area.

Margaret Strother Hancock's brother, John Strother, became a significant explorer and surveyor/mapper of North Carolina and Tennessee and was involved in the Yazoo Land brouhaha and Gen. Andrew Jackson named Fort Strother for him during the Creek skirmishes during the War of 1812."
