Married Nancy Ellen STRANGE


  • "Nancy Ellen Strange, my great great grandmother, was the daughter of John Yancy Strange and Rebeccah VanZant Strange.  He was born in Halifax, Virginia in 1795.  He was the son of William Strange and Sally Walker. Nancy Ellen married John Bailey Blair, Jr. my great great grandfather. My great great great grandfather was John Bailey Blair, Sr. He married Margaret Strange who was born in1785 in Evansville, Indiana. Her father was Edward M. Pace. Her mother was Susannah Johnson. Both Nancy Ellen Strange Blair and Margaret Strange Pace Blair were buried Durant, Bryan, Oklahoma. My thought is both were of native American ancestry. My great grandmother was Sarah Blair Nichols. Also all of my family listed lived in Edmonson County, Kentucky."
