  • We would expect that Eliza, being a common nickname for Elizabeth, wasshort for Elizabeth.  She is also known in some family references asLizzy, another common nickname for Elizabeth.  A death record in thename of Elizabeth Holbert is close to Eliza's information, but is inwhat would be her maiden name.  This record tells us also that ElizaHolbert was born in Spartanburg, South Carolina.  Census recordsreport the birth state of Eliza Holbert Strange as Tennessee.

    There are some discrepancies here.  The dates are close, withestimated date (from her age) birth reported in the record as 1875,while other sources say 29 August 1973 for our Eliza Holbert Strange.The year of death, 1911, matches, but the record has Oct 1911, whileour Eliza's grave memorial (no photo provided) has Feb 1911.  But thisElizabeth is reported as a widow, while the year of death on WilliamMack's burial memorial is 1922.

    Holbert may be her married name, and her other details are justcoincidentally close to those of Elizabeth Holbert Strange.

    A couple of websites have Eliza's maiden name as Hobart, but withoutany record or documentation for that.  A grandson, Wayne Strange,refers to her maiden name as Holbert.

    Eliza was enumerated as Lizy [sic] Holbert in 1880, as the 6-year-olddaughter of Eli and Mary E Holbert in Jefferson County, Tennessee.

    The 1900 census reports that Eliza married William Mack Strange about1892.

    A cousin, who died several years ago, gave a handwritten list ofbirths and deaths for the children of Wm. M. Strange and LizzyStrange, nee Holbert.  After comparing the list with censusinformation, I believe the information to be accurate.

    Child                                Born                Died

    1.  Gracie                        1893                1899 (a)
    2.  Oscar M.                    1895                1960
    3.  Sara A                        1898                    ?           Sara A. (Alla?), was known to me as Aunt "Elle"..
    4.  Luther                         1899                1900  (b)
    5.  George E.                   1900                1983
    6.  Not known                 1902                1902
    7.  Eli                               1904                1964
    8   James                         1907                1923

    Notes (a & b):  1900 Census for Lizzy Strange, Mother, listed 4 born &3 living children.   I am inclined to believe that Gracie died priorto census and Luther afterwards.  That would account for the 4 bornand 3 living notation.
