Notes

  • According to cemetery names and dates, William and Polly Strange(Strang) had a son named Sylvanus, named after William's brotherSylvanus.  In the Baptist Church Cemetery in Stillwater, SaratogaCounty, New York, there is a grave for Sylvanus A Strange, with only adeath date of 20 Nov 1847, and the notation that he was 43 years old.

    Sylvanus' grave lies in a row with two children's graves, Silvanus HStrang and Mary Strang, all with the same style gravestones.  Hiswife's grave is not in this cemetery.  The stone for Silvanus H Stranghas a birth date of Feb 28, 1842 and a death date of Feb 17, 1845.The child Mary lived about 13 years, born 8 June 1840, died 7 Feb1853.

    Alice, who took some photos of these stones, says onsite it looks like1847 for the date of death of Sylvanus A Strang.  After we consultedon 7-8 April 2014, Alice updated her memorials as well as uploadingsome additional photos.  Silvanus' sister Mary is buried next to him.She lived to be age 13.

    I have edited the information on the memorial posted by Jerry Ames tomatch the apparent reading and family relationships Alice hasproposed, which seem to agree with the overall data and theinformation on the grave photos Alice posted on 8 April 2014.  Alicehas also posted a new memorial for Silvanus, in which she spells hisname as his father's, Sylvanus H Strang.  I have kept the spelilng onthe gravestone in the edited memorial below.  On Alice's memorialbelow, she has posted pohtos of the grave, including Silvanus' sisterMary next to his.
