  • In the enumeration of the family of Murphy C Strange in 1900, there is no listing for a child matching Luther Carl, who should be 8 years old in that census.  He reappears in the 1910 census.

    1910 Federal Census, Jefferson County, Tennessee, 3 May, Civil District 6, District 71, page 7A, Hse #120, Fam #122
    Strange, Murphy C Head  M W 56 Married 36 years TN TN TN Laborer. working Out  Rents
    Strange, Mary Wife F W 54 Married 36 years 15 children, 12 living TN VA VA
    Strange, Carl Son M W 17 TN TN TN Farm Laborer

    In the 1920 census, I found Luther Carl listed as Carl, still single and his widowed mother was living with him on Ferry Road in Jefferson County, Tennessee.

    1920 Federal Census, Jefferson County, Tennessee, 6 January, Civil District 1, District 64, page 4A, Ferry Road, Hse #64, Fam #65
    Strange, Carl  Head  Rents home  M W 27 Single TN TN TN Farmer
    Strange, Mary F Mother F W 65 Widow TN TN TN

    Next door is his brother William, wife Edith and their children.  Three doors down from William and Edie is the family of Carl's future wife, Daisy Phillips.  Next door to them, 2 doors away from William Strange, is Daisy's older brother Perry and his new wife Lennie.

    I see that in this census, Mary is said to be age 65.  This would yield a birth year of 1855.  But a family genealogy by Claude V Hall reports her actual birth date as 23 August 1859.  This would mean she was only 61 years old.

    Claude V Hall reports on the Strange family in his genealogy.  Claude's wife was Ina Bernice Strange, daughter of Luther Carl Strange.  Claude reports that Bernice's father went by the name Carl, which we have seen in the later censuses.  Carl died of pancreatic cancer.
