Life History



15th Mar 1902



  • Family informaoit came to light that clarified the children of William Mack and Grace Ellen Strange, from a cousin who contacted me by email.  An unnamed child was included in a list, about whom no record had been found.  The child, born and died in 1902, may have been born dead and never named.

    A cousin, who died several years ago, gave a handwritten list of births and deaths for the children of Wm. M. Strange and Lizzy Strange ,nee Holbert.  After comparing the list with census information, 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 prior to census and Luther afterwards.  That would account for the 4 born and 3 living notation.
