The information I have so far on my Strang genealogy. Daniel Strang of Rye, NY is my 6th great-grandfather.
[Note: I have only provided direct line information (my charts are still work-in-progress) as it pertains to the Strangs.]

Self: Susan T. McVicar (b. Yonkers, NY 1957, m. Daniel W. Stock 1988, living)

Great Grandmother: Cora Estelle Field (b.NY 1868, m. Harry Burtis DeVeau 1887, d. 1953)
2nd Great Grandmother: Hannah Reynolds Strang (b. NY 1837, m. David R. Field 1857, d. 1902)
3rd Great Grandfather: Henry Strang (b. Rye, NY 1788, m. Ann Eliza Reynolds 1830, d. 1853)

8th Great Grandfather: Jean D'Estrang (b. Orlean, France 1598, m. Marie de Nordmann 1615, d.?)

My primary sources have been Hannah Reynolds Strang's marriage certificate, a volume of The History of Rye, books on
early Huguenot immigration to America, the Family Search Internet Genealogy Service, various other online genealogy
pages, and direct contact with other descendants of Daniel Strang. I'm determined to find out more about my 8th
great-grandfather, Jean D'Estreng, and whether there is in fact a line that goes back to Sir Fulk Lestrange of Blackmere.
Any suggestions or guidance you can provide would be very much appreciated.

North Carolina
From Dorothy for William E. Strange
I am interested in receiving information about the Strange family.  My husband is William E. STRANGE, Jr. He is a retired geophysicist/geodesist. His family originated in Gum Branch, Onslow County, North Carolina.  In 1848 Carl Lott STRANGE and his family along with the FRAZELLE (FRAZEL) and BARRY families left N.C. for Texas which had become a state in 1846. As a result of my husband's profession we have lived in a number of places---Texas, Wisconsin, Hawaii, the Washington, D.C. area and are now retired in Charles Town, West Virginia which is about 60 miles from the Washington area.    Thank you, Dorothy.


Here is a family outline descendant tree and a full genealogy report based on a John W. STRANGE born about 1791 in NC and married to a Rebecca born about 1792 in VA.  The information was provided to me by a correspondent and is based on research carried out by Gaylord Strange, Eldon MO and published sometime after 1986.

One of my ancestors, Amos Strange of VA,. went to SC when he married his Irish wife FrancesBailey.  Amos fought in the war of 1812; he was a Captain & Drill Master.  In Virginia he left behind an estate and the church founded by his family.  In SC he helped establish the Campground Church Meeting Place; where he is buried. Frances, his widow went to GA to live with her son William Bradford Strange.  She was blind the last ten years of her life; she also drew a pension on the Revolutionary War on Amos. My g-g-grandfather was William Berry Strange born in SC, he  went to Marshall County, Alabama.  He married Pricilla Herndon of Chattooga Cty., GA  In the Civil war he was a CSA Captain; he was captured in Louisiana and imprisoned in Fort Hudson, Maryland.  After the war he returned to his family in Alabama and became a minister.  My G-father was born to William Berry and Pricilla in 1872 in Marshall Cty,  AL.  Samuel Lurs Strange married Samantha Gaybriel Nixon.  In 1906 William Berry dies and Samuel & Samantha move to Foard County, Texas and later to Wichita County Texas. I have much info on my line of the Strange Family all the way back to Alexander Strange who came to the USA abt. 1635 from England."

The parents and friends have the sympathy of the entire community.

May we reverence their memory and use their rich heritage to the glory of God.  She closed her eyes in sleep after but a few hours of suffering, November 11th, 1920.

From Judy at judybaouab@aol.com 30 Aug 2003
 My aunt has a grandfather named Starling Jack STRANGE (or perhaps Starlin Jack or Sterling Jack). She can't find anything about his parents or siblings and we can't find him in the 1880 U.S. Federal Census despite much searching in archives, microfilmed censuses, online, etc.

Jack (as he was usually called) was born in Texas in January 1856, according to the 1900 U.S. Federal Census for Robertson County, Texas. His father was listed as being born in Georgia and his mother was listed as having been born in Alabama.(However, the 1900 census for Robertson county, Texas, said that his father was born in Alabama and his mother was born in Mississippi. By the 1920 census, also in Robertson County, Texas, both parents were listed as having been born in Alabama.)

We have the same problem with Jack's birth date. Although the census said he was born in January 1856, his tombstone says he was born in 1850. His age in the family bible is very difficult to read. It says he was born January 31, 1850 (or maybe 1854) and has been crossed out to read 1856.

There seems to be some confusion about his year of birth, but his ages as listed in the censuses for 1900-1910-1920 support a birth year of 1856.

Starling Jack STRANGE's marriage is listed in courthouse records on 12 November 1878 in Falls County, Texas, with "no return". He married Nannie E. WEATHERLY (or maybe, WEATHERBY)on 14 November 1878, according to his family bible.

Nannie E. WEATHERLY (WEATHERBY?) was born in 1850 and died in 1910, according to her tombstone. The 1900 census for Nannie said that she was born in Texas in November, 1858. Her age in the 1900 census supports a birth in 1858 but the family bible says she was born 5 October 1851. She seems to have fibbed about her age on censuses, unless her husband put the wrong birth year. He wrote most of the entries but apparently all at once, so errors could creep in.  The family bible says that Nannie died 29 April 1910.  Nannie's parents were both born in Alabama, according to the censuses for 1900 and 1910.

These children were born to Starling Jack STRANGE and Nannie E. WEATHERLY (or WEATHERBY). Dates come from the family bible and are supported in censuses.

1. Carie Glendarie STRANGE was born 17 December 1879. She married Hiram? A. WALKER 3 December 1896.
2. Jettie Jewell STRANGE was born 14 December 1881. She married Duncan (Dunkin)Littleton CLARK 21 September
1898. She died 8 November 1951 in Marlin, Falls, Texas. Jettie was the mother of my aunt, so we have information on her
children and descendants.
3. Lula Mattie STRANGE was born 12 March 1884 and died 2 August 1900.
4. Thomas Jackson STRANGE was born 5 September 1886 and died 9 May 1901.
5. Jessie Elmer STRANGE was born 15 January 1888 and died March 1950
6. Eunace Pearl STRANGE was born 25 February 1890 and died 10 August 1905.
7. William Britton STRANGE was born 22 September 1893 and died 14 December 1952.
8. George Silas STRANGE was born 3 November 1896 and died 17 June 1966.

All the children were born in Texas. Starling Jack STRANGE and his wife Nannie E. WEATHERLY were living in Robertson County, Texas, at the time of the 1900-1910 censuses. The widowed Starling Jack STRANGE and an unknown girl named Hashie ?? STRANGE were boarders in his married Daughter (Jettie Jewell STRANGE CLARK's house in Bremond, Robertson County, Texas at the time of the 1920 census. Hashie was born about 1917-1918 in Texas, as were her parents, whoever they might have been.

Starling Jack STRANGE died in Harris County, Texas, on 24 January 1927.
I hope that someone is connected to this family in some way or can help with this difficult branch of my aunt's family.

Does anyone have a Vincent Strange, resident in Detroit, Michigan in the 1940s? I have found him mentioned in a will I purchased. He would have been quite elderly by that time as I believe him to have been born around 1874.

Vincent shows up in the 1920 census of Detroit (SD 145, ED 120, Sh 7A):
Vincent O. Strange, 45, unmarried, lodger; immigrated to US, 1892; naturalized 1904; b England (parents b England); occupation: tester (elec. heater).

1860 Reuben Strange, age 46, male, black, b. in VA, laborer, in Turtle Creek Township, Warren Co. OH. Others in household: Maria, 35; William, 16; Lydia, 13; George, 11; John, 19; Anna, 7; Charles 4; Calvin, 2.

I am related to an African-American Strange family in northern VA that includes Nelson Strange and his daughter Hannah Strange. Hannah married William Berry in 1852, was widowed in 1864, and married Uriah Wise in 1867 in Fauquier Co., VA. Rev. James A. Haynes (Haines) of Loudoun Co. performed their wedding ceremony at the home of James H. and Elizabeth Hathaway (which I think was called "Western View").

In 1870, members of this family lived in Fauquier Co. and worked as agricultural laborers and/or domestic servants for Euro-American Rector and Hutchinson families. Hannah and Uriah moved to Chambersburg, PA by 1878. They owned their home free and clear by 1900. Military records indicate that Uriah A. Wise, resident of Chambersburg, PA in 1890, was a Civil War veteran who served as a Pennsylvania Volunteer. Several African-Americans named William Berry also enlisted with the Union Army in USCT.

Here's a little more information on African-American Strange family in VA transcribed from Clarke Co. abstracts.
Clarke Co., VA Marriages 1865-1890 STRANGE
John 30, widower born & living in Clarke Co, VA Farm Hand parents Reuben & Betsie Strange, married 13 Jan 1867 to Clara Williams, 24, single, born & living in Clarke, parents Macklin & Evalina Williams, Af-Am.

Stephen, 26, widower, born & living in Clarke, Farm Hand, parents John & Jane Strange, mar on 3 Mar 1874 to Delilah Robinson, 21, single, b & l in Clarke, parents Henry & Louisa Robinson, Af-Am couple

Reuben, 23, single b & l in Clarke, Farm Hand, parents John & Cloe (Chloe) Strange, married 14 Aug 1879 in White Post, Clarke, to Catherine Williams 17, s, b & l Clarke, parents Edward & Sallie Williams, Af-Am

Abbreviations: b & l (born and living in); m (married); s (single); Af-Am (African American)

Black people with this surname are scattered in records for several Virginia counties, including Frederick, Clarke, and Fauquier.

Replying to another researcher:
The Reuben Strange you were seeking could be related to the one who left Virginia for Ohio. His wife was Mariah or Maria. (1860, Turtle Creek; 1880 Salem, Warren County, OH)

I also noticed that "Reuben and Betsie Strange" are named as parents of John Strange who married Clara Williams in 1867. (Clarke County, VA Marriages 1865-1890) The parents of John Strange appear to be the son "Reuben Jr." and daughter-in-law "Betsey" mentioned in the record you have for the elder Reuben Strange.

My relative Hannah Wise -- maiden name Hannah Strange -- could be related to Richard Strange who also lived in Fauquier County in 1870. They may be related to an older Richard Strange who lived with his wife Sarah and son John in Winchester, Frederick County in 1860 and 1870. The elder Richard Strange in Winchester was employed as a whitewasher. The one in Fauquier County was a laborer. Richard and Sarah in Winchester could be the son and daughter-in-law of the emancipated Reuben Strange you mentioned in your post.  I have not yet determined whether my Strange family is related to others in Alexandria, including the Methodist minister Jacklin Strange (1836-1922). He traveled all over the state establishing new churches. He and his wife Hannah (Weaver) Strange also lived for a time in Hampton, Virginia. They had an account with the Freedman's Bank in Richmond. Jacklin Strange of 807 Duke was listed on voter rolls in Alexandria. He also was a trustee of Wilberforce University.  I hope some of this information may be useful to your project.

I am a descendant from Alexander Strange New Kent,VA. and from his son Julius. I would love to know any information on them before they came to the USA. Julius's son William came to Kentucky from Halifax, VA and I can find very little on him. I have pictures of the old St. Peter's Parish in VA where some of them are buried, but they had no stones. Beautiful place.

It is said  Amos left the Estate and Church formed by his forefathers to marry the Irish Lass-  Frances Bailey.  He returned to Virginia several times trying to reclaim his Estate but, we do not know what the records are on it. .I assume since he stayed in South Carolina & helped  form the Church there, he was unsuccessful on re-establishing his Virginia ties.  Frances Bailey went to Georgia and spent the last ten years of her life  in the home of her son . She was blind in the later  yrs. of her life.

It is said he married everyone in Marshall and DeKalb, County, Alabama. His name can be found on lots of old  Vital Records of Alabama. It is said  William Berry Strange was a much loved and honored man of Marshall   County, Alabama.

From +(1) Mary above:
24 Samuel Lurs Strange b 02 Feb 1872 Martling, Alabama; d 22 Oct 1957
+ Samantha Gaybriel Nixon 24 Feb 1892 Dekalb County AL;
b 28 May 1872 Marshall County, Alabama;
daughter of John B.Nixon. & Ahenoam ( Hincy) Childress-Nixon

Samuel Lurs was a Steamboat Pilot in his Youth piloting on the Tennessee River. He owned a farm per  BLM records where his family lived and the first children of he &  Samantha were born. It is recorded that in approximately 1905 Samuel rode a white  horse from Alabama to Texas looking for farm land to move his family to. In  early 1906  Samuel rented  three  boxcars  on a  train and loaded up his  family, household, farm equip and livestock and  went to Texas. I will also note here that Samantha Gaybriel Nixon- Strange's Grandparents were Isaac Childress and the Webbs of  Marshall County who were all Methodist Ministers. Samanthas's sisters all married Methodist ministers and her brother John b. Nixon, Jr. was also a Methodist minister.  Samantha preached in her younger days in Texas and was a Midwife.

                 25 Bert William Garland Strange b 03 Jun 1906 Texas; 

Bert was the 6th child of Samuel and Samantha and the first born in Texas.   There is a discrepancy in records to Samuel's middle name; sometimes it is listed as Lusers and sometimes  as Lewis.  My father's birth certificate says  LURS.  Samuel did have an uncle Samuel Lewis ( brother of  his father) Samuel Lewis did not move to Alabama or Texas.  There is also a discrepancy in the year  Samuel & Samantha moved to Texas.  My fathers birth certificate  says he was born in Texas in 1906.  I have also verified  this with his sisters who all said he was definitely born  in Texas.   Samuel & Samantha farmed in Texas from 1906 to 1934-1935. First in Foard Cty. & then in Electra  ( Wichita Cty.).    In 1934-35 they moved across the RED RIVER from Wichita County into  Jefferson County, Oklahoma where they already owned a farm which was being farmed by their oldest son Otis Webb Strange and his family had  been living on.  They farmed this place a few years & sold out.   They bought a home and two city blocks of land in Stephens County Oklahoma.   They lived in Comanche, Oklahoma for the rest of their lives.

Bert left the home of his parents at the age of 12.  He had a dispute with his mother and just left.
He went to the King Ranch in Texas where he was taken in and given a job as assistant to the  Horse caretaker.  He lived in the bunkhouse with all the men who worked for King Ranches...  As he got a little older he was made assistant to the head vetenarian of King Ranches.   Here he learned a profession that he would practice all his life.   He learned to cowboy and even started participating in Rodeo's, often winning money for the Calf Roping.   He had saved his earning and purchased him a horse and saddle.  But, even now Bert did not think he was getting ahead fast enough.. So he rode into town and got a job as assistant to the night  Baker at a bakery.  He would ride to town when his day job at the ranch was finished and work until  10-11 o'clock at night in the Bakery.   Ride his horse back to the Ranch and get up early to take care of the Horses.  He became Head Veternarian at the Ranch.

When Bert was about 27 years of age he had saved enough money to buy him a new Model A. Ford.  ( They cost abt. $400.00-500.00 at that time)  He bought him a new car and decided to go visit his parents.  He had not seem them in  13-14 years. He goes to Electra and was speeding up into their circular drive in front of the house and turns his new car over right at the front door steps. He was probably showing off- of how successful he was, finally coming home in a new car.  His mother never let him forget about it but Dad would just shrug his shoulders and say, " Those dam cars were top heavy anyway", then he'd laugh.  

($400.00  - 500.00  seems like a small amount of money now-a-days but when your working for $20.00-30.00 a month it was probably hard to save that amount.    Daddy never went back to King Ranches as a employee but for many, many years King Ranches contacted him when they were in trouble with a very expensive horse that was sick.   He was a veternarian when I was little.  He and mother bought a small little strip of buildings that was a Gas station, Grocery store, and a Garage and ran them when I was in the first grade.  When I was  in the 2nd grade the King Ranches  sent a chauffeured automobile for Dad and took him to Texas treat one of their expensive horses.   I had never seen a auto  with a chauffeur before and I was very impressed.    On  March 1, 1933  Bert W. married my mother  Frances W. Wall  who is decendant of  Evan Wall c1379-1450 in Lancashire, England. which went on down to descendant Thomas Wall II, b More Hall in Garstang, Lancashire,  to James Wall  1593-1650 and Isabel Travers.   Thomas Wall, 11  was one of the first settlers in the state of Maryland, USA. He died in Maryland, USA.  His son, Joshua Wall, Sr. 1655-1744 born in Maryland USA, Joshua  Sr.'s  son  Joshua, Jr. was born in Brunswick County, Virginia.   The Wall family owned a small fleet of ships that hauled immigrants to the USA and tobacco back to England.  My mother decended from this family.  She was born  1-7-1916 in Hunt County, Texas.

It is said in the history of the Wall family that they came to the USA in search of Gold but, the only gold they found was in the tobacco fields of Virginia. The Wall family had several son's who fought in the Revolutionary War and several who fought for the Confederacy in the Civil War.

Bert & Frances have four daughters, I am the oldest  Elisa Jeane Strange-von Rice b 24 Feb1934.   In WW11  Bert was classified as 4 F  because of severe stomach ulcers.   He went to Washington State and worked on a Federal shipyard and on what would become the nuclear plant in Washington.   He was then made General Foreman of Edwards Air Force Base in California and built the first barracks and hangers.   There was no housing for families so, mother & us kids lived in Bakersfield and Dad came home on weekends to be with us.

After WW11, Bert was a independent building contractor in Bakersfield, CA but did not like the Unions.  He was a Texan and never liked to take orders, he had rather give them than take them.  He drove over to Phoenix, Arizona and decided on a town Southeast of Phoenix, Casa Grande, Arizona to set up his building business.   In the fall of 1945  he built his first buildings in Casa Grande, a grocery store for a gentlemen by the name of Russel German and a new house to move us too.   During the Xmas Holiday 1945  he returned to Bakersfield and moved us to Casa Grande, Arizona.    I  went back to school after January 1st, 1946 to Casa Grande Public School. At first I hated it as it was dirty and dusty and nothing like my loved school in Bakersfield, CA. which was modern and had up to the date classes.   For instance I took French Classes in Bakersfied in the fourth grade, Casa Grande had nothing, it was a cultural  shock.  It was a town of about 2000 and most of the houses were Adobe or old clapboard that had been moved in from someplace else.  I got in serious trouble with my Dad by telling him I thought he had moved us straight to  HELL.  

Bert bought several streets of land and began building house after house directly across from the school and down east of the Grocery.  He built affordable housing for soldiers coming home who had new families and no place to live.  After building street after street of houses and all that land was filled up he built commercial and residential buildings all over the Casa Grande Valley; towns of Coolidge, Florence, Eloy, Maricopa & Stanfield all have residential & commercial buildings built by Bert's Company.

He also owned a farm service business of combines, trucks and other farm services to the cotton farmers and ranchers of the Casa Grande Valley and in Colorado.  No matter what Bert was engaged in he always had registered horses boarded someplace and participated in local and Phoenix parades.

In 1958  the family sold out and went to the Cattle & Quarterhorse breeding Ranch of the family in Shawnee, Oklahoma.  Here Bert returned to his veterinarian past and was even offered a job teaching at the  Stillwater Ok. University as a teacher of Veterinary Medicine..  He declined the job as he was very involved in raising registered Quarterhorses and having them trained for the race tracks.   His horses ran at Turf Paradise in Phoenix, Reidosa Downs,  New Mexico and Louisiana Downs plus many more places.  Bert won many trophies for his horses.   The Family formed a Trail Club for young riders in the Shawnee area that still exists today.  Bert was a lifetime member of the Quarter Horse Association, the Appoloosa Association and an honored member of the Paint Horse Association.

Elisa said [edited],
"I have been curious since reading that the Strange Family " Alexander Strange" and descendants stayed in Virginia so long  ( about a century and a half) and each of them seemed to be Christened or died at New Kent County, (formerly Bisland)  St. Peters Parish (Episcopalian).  I found the index to the Vestry records via a Google search and located Alexander Strange and family;more than thirty entries; mostly christenings & births & deaths. The deaths of Alexander and wife Anne are included

I found that the monetary  system was all in pounds of tobacco; I saw a shilling mentioned only once.  It seems that the congregation started in the late 1600's and they built the church 1701-1703.  The minister was very proud it was a brick church; it is mentioned many times and it tells how many pounds of tobacco was bartered for its construction.  They later added a steeple and accessed the members again for pounds of tobacco.  Apparently the Episcopalians tell you how much your tithe is going to be; in this case so many pounds of tobacco. If it was not paid they reminded you it was due, and how delinquent. 

I then went back and pulled up all the vestry records and read them; what a history lesson in the Colonies!

Martha Dandridge was a member of St. Peters Parish. She and George Washington were married in this very church in 1757.  The Stranges were here 50 years before Martha and George.

They sometimes refer to the church as the " Church of the First Lady". Another interesting  fact; the De La Warr family came to Virginia from England.  The oldest son of De La Warr became the first governor of Virginia and one of their other son's became the second governor of Virginia. Their Youngest son, Nathaniel, is in the vestry records as Colonel DeLaWarr...  The DelaWarr  wife &  Mother  was  Elizabeth Strange.

The Stanley, DelaWarr, and a couple of other families of the Virginia Company were directly related to the Stranges.  These were not farmers; it is evidenced by the excavations of the colony. There was no farm equip. whatsoever and things like gold jewelry and items ordinary working class people would not have possessed back in those days.  In one place it even refers to one as "Lord Strange".

In the Amos Strange writings it said he left his very large estate and the church of his forefathers in Virginia to move to South Carolina to marry the Irish lass Frances Bailey.  Also in St Peter's vestry records it mentions a Le'Strange.  Amos was supposed to be instrumental in the establishment of a church in Spartanburg, South Carolina.  He is supposed to be buried in the Camp Meeting Grounds - what was this church?   I will be trying to find these records.  Since Amos was in the Revolutionary War was he acquainted with the de la Warrr ( Strange ) and the  Colonel Nathaniel De LaWarr and George Washington?"

Michael {mscottstrange[at]ellsouth[dot]net said in November 2006:

The information that I have on my descent is derived from research that I have done is mostly from Ancestry.com and from a book published by a Strange in Indiana. The descent that I have does follow the John Strange -Phoebe Mitchell line. I cannot speak to its reliability as I haven't done any research on the source documents (other than recent US documents) myself. It sounds as though there may not be much documentation for it  in any case. The only thing that I can say is that I have seen it repeated by several different sources.

The information that I have is as follows:

Robert Henderson-Askew{askewquest[at]bellsouth[dot]net) said in November 2006
I descend from Anne Strange b 1704 daughter of, Alexander, of New Kent, VA who married John Askew in 1723.

AliceAnne Brunn {brunnwaco[at]earthlink[dot].net} replied: I think we may be related, since my ancestor is also from VA in the colonial period (pre 1735).  We just don't know who his parents were. His wife was Cloe Cornwell, daughter of Peter Cornwell; their son was Washington Strange.  They moved from VA to KY after the French & Indian War and later to MO, where my mother, grandmother, and ggfather grew up.  My ggfather was William Patton Strange.  I do have a male cousin (Strange surname) who is available for DNA testing if I can talk him into doing it for me.

Mark Strange <mark[at]jmstrange[dot]com> said
I have a William Henry Strange in my line of decent born in Halifax Co VA early to mid 1750's. He is the youngest son of Edmond & Mary Strange. There are a lot of William Stranges in Virginia during colonial times. I found: William Strange I (1732-1829) Parentage unknown, born York County VA 4-2-1732, moved from VA to Garrard County Kentucky about 1799. Married Chloe or Cloe Cornwall. A son named Washington who died age 96 in Garrard Co 12-12-1829. His descendants marry into the Grigsby Family, Woolf family and Shepherd family. A William Grigsby ends up in Missouri in 1832. No mention of William Patton Strange.

Robert added, this is how the line goes [Ed - primary source proof would be great to see as the late John Mayer, in his book the "The Stranges of Aquitaine and Anglia", said he was unable to make any case for a London connection (much less Hunstanton). His strongest guess was that the Devon family came from a branch that had previously migrated to Ireland.]

Anne Strange 1704-1784 = John Askew 1705-1780 Lunenberg Va.
Alexander 1665-1725       = 2nd. w.  Anne 1667 -29 Jan 1718  New Kent Va

From Pam <pamtempson[at]yahoo[dot]com> January 2007
My dad: Ronald Lynn Strange was born on 16 Jul 1945 in Lima, Allen, OH,USA and is still living.  His father, Herbert L. Strange, was born 7 Jan 1910 in Frankfort,Clinton,IN, USA and died 12 Nov 1969 in Lima, Allen, OH, USA. Herbert's father, Walter Armadell Strange, was born 17 May 1889 in Frankfort, Clinton, IN, USA and died 19 Mar 1965 in Lima, Allen, OH, USA.  I think that Walter's Father was Murphy Columbus Strange from Jefferson, TN, but I'm not sure of this. I have spouse information for the above individuals as well if this will help.

Melgersma observed:
There is a Walter A Strange born May 1889 living with his parents Frank (Born Feb 1866) and Mary (Born Oct 1867) in Center Township, Clinton, Indiana in the 1900 census. It lists his siblings as Ira, Frances, Hazel and Mary. Murphy Strange does not seem to have a son named Walter in the 1900 census.

More from Pam:
I am now trying to identify the parents of Walter Armadell Strange b: 17 May 1889 Frankfort, Clinton,Indiana, USA d: 19 Mar 1965 Lima, Allen, OH, USA.  His first wife and the one I am related to was Myrtle Irene Snodgrass b:2 Jun 1889 Rensselaer, ,Indiana, USA d: 28 Aug 1956 South Bend, ,Indiana, USA. Melgersma found a Walter A Strange born May 1889  living with his parents Frank (Born Feb 1866) and Mary(Born Oct 1867) in Center Township, Clinton, Indiana in the 1900 census. It lists his siblings as Ira E. Strange 7, Francis R. 5, Hazel E. 3 and Mary M. 1 but I don't think this is the correct person, because the siblings conflict with those listed in the obituary that my grandmother passed down to me.  The obituary says:"Walter A. Strange, 75, of 1918 Wendell, was dead on arrival at Memorial Hospital 8:45 a.m. Friday following a heart attack.  He was born May 17, 1889, in Frankfort, Ind., and retired five years ago after 52 years as a freight agent of the Pennsylvania Railroad.  Mr. Strange was a member of Market Street Presbyterian Church, Free and Accepted Mason Lodge 706, Elks Club and Rotary Club.  A 32nd degree Mason, he had been a member of the group 50 years.  Survivors include his wife, Alverda; three sons, Norman of 687 1/2 S. Main, Herbert L. of 1142 Catalpa and Paul E. of Newark; a daughter, Mrs. L. W. (Lois) Kohlhorst of Marion; a brother, Carol of Frankfort, Ind.; and two sisters, Mrs. Charles (Marie) Jones of Park Forest, Ill., and Mrs. Margaret McKinney of Indianapolis, Ind"

I found a family Tree at Ancestery.com "Aaron Strange" owned by strangea<http://www.ancestry.com/community/member/profile.aspx?cba=strangea> that lists the following: (Pam acknowledged: thanks for this information, Melgersma. The Aaron Strange tree on Ancestry.com  was created by me and my half-brother. It's a work in progress, so much of it is not accurate or verified. The 1910 census should list Walter as a child of  Frank and Jenny since he was born in 1889, but maybe an error was made in   the recording. He did have a brother named Carl and a sister named Marie   (which I understand is used interchangeable with Mary) and they are listed as children. I'll do some more digging)
