Life History


Married Edmond STRANGE in St Peters Parish, Putneys Mill, New Kent, Virginia.8


Birth of son Amos Alexander STRANGE in Halifax County, Virginia.3,4,5,6,7






  • I have found no sources that has a maiden name for Mary.  A couple of sources give the name of Martha Ellis as the wife of this Edmond Strange, but for a long time I could not reconcile this with other information.  I finally found another Strange family genealogy that reported both wives:

    Mary (no last name known) who was the mother of Amos Alexander, and died in 1775, but with no other children reported

    No name, but matches Martha Ellis in other sources, and has same children as others which report only Martha as the wife.  This matches other sources on dates, with the first child of this marriage, a boy named Parnum, born in 1776, about a year after the reported date of the marriage to Martha Ellis in 1775, which also is the year reported for the death of Mary, mother of Amos Alexander.

    I find it odd that no other children of Mary are reported by any sources I have seen so far, in a 15 year period following Amos' birth.
