    Strange, Fred I Son M W 9mos TN TN TN

    The oldest son's name is given here as Leonard.  This makes it appear that the name for him in 1900, Leonodus, was meant to represent Leonardus, the full original form of Leonard.  This could be his actual formal name.

    Note that Ida is missing.  In connection with this, we see that Hanna Katherine has had 5 more children since 1900, but only 3 more total are living.  It appears from this census that Ida is one of the children who has died.  However, the Edmonds/Strange Genealogy reports that she lived until 1956.
    Ida Jane Strange 1894 - 1956
    She must have married at age 15 or 16.

    Other new children in this census are Lucile, Clarence and Fred Jr.  That means there are two other child born since 1900 that has also died in the meantime, which these records do not tell us about.  The Edmonds/Strange Family Genealogy reports the names of two additional children, twins born and died in 1903:
    Andy Strange 1903 - 1903
    Ann Strange 1903 - 1903

    But this genealogy also reports a total of 14 children born before 1910, but the 1910 census reports only 9 children born up to that time.  Either this genealogy or the census number of children is wrong.  The genealogy provides some family information, but is not very carefully reviewed or documented.  It has a duplication of Fred Jr, and Lola is entered a second time as Lela.  So the total is 12, still 3 children more than the census reported.

    A family genealogy reports that Frederick I Strange Sr is buried in the Strange Cemetery on Muddy Hollow Road, off Rainwater School Road in south Jefferson County, Tennessee.
