Other facts


Married Mary DENTON


  • The gravestone for the child named Sylvanus A Strang has only a deathdate, saying "Died Nov 20, 1847  L. 13 yrs."  No birth date is givenon the stone.  The engraving appears to mean "Lived 43 years."  Thiswould make birth about 1804.

    William and Polly Strang had a son named Sylvanus (the name of one ofWilliam's brother).  According to Find a Grave researcher andphotographer Alice, Sylvanus married someone named Mary, and they alsohad a son named Sylvanus (spelled Silvanus on the gravestone), withthe middle initial H.  But young Silvanus died at just a little overone year old.  They also had a daughter named Mary who lived only intoher teens.

    "Sylvanus A. Strang [Find a Grave memorial] #40675275 was married to awoman named Mary, and they had two children, Sylvanus H. Strang1842-1845 and Mary Strang 1840-1853, 26857289. Sylvanus died in 1847and the children both died young... the three of them are buriedtogether in a short row and I've added photos of the row to thememorials."

    According to cemetery names and dates in the Baptist Church Cemeteryin Stillwater, Saratoga County, New York, Silvanus H Strang has abirth date of Feb 28, 1842 and a death date of Feb 17, 1843.  MaryStrang's stone says she was born 8 June 1840 and died 7 February 1853.

    There appeared to be some errors in earlier transcriptions in some ofthe Find a Grave memorials.  I have conferred with Alice, whophotographed the stones and had a good onsite interpretation of thehard-to-read dates in the stone engravings, with come possibleconfusion between 1s and 4s in the dates.  Alice updated her memorialon 8 April 2014.  I have added or edited soem of the information alsoto clarify the inscription and relationships that were automaticallyand incorrectly generated by Find a Grave.  Thanks to Alice for hergood work on this family and the stones in this cemetery.
