    Carl Bernard Strange
    Birth Aug. 15, 1907 Knoxville, Knox County, Tennessee
    Death Dec. 17, 1927, At Sea

    Carl Bernard Strange was the eldest child of Alice "Blanche"(Burkhart) Strange and Luther Ruble Strange, who had married on Jun 6,1906 in Knoxville, Tennesse. Carl was b. Aug 15th, 1907. He and hisparents lived in the home of his mother's father, Claiborne EliBurkhart, a widower since 1889, along with two cousins, Jonathan Eliand Henry Wesley Burkhart. Henry remained with his father for the restof his life. By 1920, Carl was 13 years old and living with hisparents in Franklin, Tennessee with his younger brother, James,b.1914, age 6. A daughter, Ora Mae, had been born June 7, 1917, butdied on Dec 14, 1917 while the family was living in Chattanooga. Shewas buried at Forest Hill Cemetery in Chattanooga, on Dec 18, 1917.Carl graduated from high school when he was 18 years old, the Class of1926. He joined the Navy following graduation, service number 294 0594. He was assigned duty, following basic training, onboard asubmarine, USS S-4 (SS-109), which was in the Atlantic Ocean East ofProvincetown, Massachusetts, on Dec 17, 1927 when it collided with theUSCG ship Pauling. He was one of the many hands who drowned. Carl wasinterred at the National Cemetery at Chattanooga, Tennessee under thename Carl "Bernice" Strange. I have sent a DD149 to request that hisname be corrected to Carl Bernard Strange. I may only be a 3rd cousin,twice removed, but it seems like the least I could do.
