Updating genealogy section

I am con­tin­u­ing to tran­scribe the Elder John Strong Ances­try Infor­ma­tion into our geneal­ogy data­base — now at 824 indi­vid­u­als and 271 families.

Posted in Webmaster's Corner.


  1. Do you have some con­nec­tions you can share? One of my ances­tors is Dea­con Job Strong Leonard. Born about 1724 and served in the Rev­o­lu­tion­ary War. I can­not find his father or mother. I assume the mid­dle name of Strong comes from a rel­a­tive. The next Leonard is Samule Leonard, JR. 1702.

  2. I’m inter­ested in offer­ing updates on the Thomas Strong line that weren’t included in the update book and col­lab­o­rat­ing on doc­u­men­ta­tion with oth­ers. I’m descended from Tim­o­thy Strong & Anne Rogers.


  3. I am inter­ested in pro­vid­ing updates for the descen­dants of my great-grandmother, Eve­lyn Anne Strong (Updates, Vol­ume III, Descen­dants of Samuel Strong, p.282).

    I also have a pic­ture of Eve­lyn Anne Strong, her hus­band, John Wes­ley Ford, and some of their children.

  4. I have Min­erva Sack­ett in my Ances­try She is The Daugh­ter of Cap­tain Jus­tus Sack­ett and Lydia New­comb Both are Descen­dants of John Strong and Abi­gail Ford of Their Daugh­ters Han­nah Strong and Expe­ri­ence Strong. Min­erva Sack­ett Mar­ried Abel Cur­tis Carter, I have Recently Decided to Order Vol­umes 2 to 5 at This Time to Make Sure My Ances­try is Correct,

Date of Birth, States Mar­ried Lydia New­comb Ther is no + Sign for Fam­ily. While on 2–29 Hannah-Daughter of Elder John Strong Vol­ume III, Page 508 onwards I can Find Ref­er­ence to Cap­tain William Clark, and His Son William Clark # 27547 who Mar­ried Bethiah Williams Can Not Find in the Book Their Fam­ily Daugh­ter Han­nah Clark Who Mar­ried Ben­jamin New­comb Their Daugh­ter Lydia New­comb Mar­ried Jus­tus Sackett

  7. Strong Fam­ily His­tory Vol­ume III, Page 646, Luther Strong born 11 Octo­ber 1777 Says He Served in the Rev­o­lu­tion­ary War Can Some­one Explain that to Me. or do they Mean the Sec­ond Rev­o­lu­tion­ary War Known as the War of 1812?

  8. I have just come across your page on the will of the Rev James Stronge of Devon, Eng­land. Num­ber 113 in the list of his fam­ily, Max­i­m­il­ian, is my grand­fa­ther. I can fill in some of the miss­ing details about him, if you wish.
    I live in Derby, England.

  9. I am try­ing to locate some infor­ma­tion more than what I have found about Jud­son Strong b. 1844 son of Chauncy B. Strong & Eunice J. Leihy. I can find Jud­son in 1860 IL and 1870 IL and we know he mar­ried Kate Pow­ers & had a son named either Charles Richard Strong b. abt. 1872, or went by the name of Chauncy Strong in Chicago.
    Thoughts are he died in the Chicago Fire. Does any­body know how long he was alive between 1870 and 1880 and exactly what hap­pened to him?

  13. I am inter­ested in con­tribut­ing my line. I am a direct descen­dant from Gen­eral John Strong through his daugh­ter, Chloe Strong. She mar­ried John Her­ri­man in 1793 and moved to Illi­nois in abt 1818.

  14. I have some infor­ma­tion I’d like to con­tribute on my line. I am a descen­dant of Byron Strong, who set­tled in Que­bec, then after moved to Ohio about 1860. How can I share this information?

  20. heather

  21. Would like to join Strong Asso­ci­a­tion and would like to sub­mit tree from Gen. John Strong through Chloe Strong to me again. Did it while Bob was in office before he died, so it may be in his papers some­where. Let me know how to respond. Thank you.

  22. We’re descended from Samuel and Ezra and the Pitts­field Strongs. I just returned from a trip to Wind­sor, Northamp­ton, Pitts­field, Williamstown and Addi­son, Ver­mont all of which have old houses with Strong con­nec­tions. The Pitts­field and Addi­son VT Strongs appear to have played a sig­nif­i­cant and hith­erto unher­alded role in the May 10, 1775 seizure of Fort Ticon­deroga. It is prob­a­bly that there are addi­tional orig­i­nal records in the Guard/Militia offices in Boston related to Cap­tain John Strong 2nd Berk­shire Rangers Mili­tia. Does any­one have any addi­tional rel­e­vant infor­ma­tion? Is some­one will­ing to check the old mili­tia records in Boston? I have the address and con­tacts. Posted Memo­r­ial Day for a reason…

  23. Does any­one have the con­tact info for the designer of the Strong Crest? I would like to get in touch with him.

  24. Where should I send the new addi­tions, deaths, mar­riages, divorces for the JEDEDIAH Son of Elder John Strong
    Decen­dant of Mil­dred Strong #18427, pg. 988 on the Harry P. Strong Sr. fam­ily 11 — #61?

  25. I am research­ing the Strong fam­ily (my hus­band is a descen­dant of Nel­lie Belle Strong — her father was Philip Strong and Philip Strong’s father was Edgar E. Strong who mar­ried Mary Agnes Chipman—they lived in Brook­lyn, Schuyler, Illi­nois). I won­der if any­one know the date of death for Edgar E. Strong? I have him born in 1860, but I can not find a date or place of death for him. Does any­one have that infor­ma­tion that they would share? Your web­site is a great site. Edgar & Mary Agnes (Chip­man) Strong had 5 chil­dren: Philip Strong, Hal J. Strong, Bon­nie D. Strong, Mary Strong, Myr­tle Ann Strong. Thank you.

  26. I am inter­ested in updat­ing the geneal­ogy line for Philip Strong and Rhoda Payne. Their chil­dren are men­tioned, but not listed. How would I do that?

    I would like some infor­ma­tion on the descend­ing line to Simeon Strong b. 1731; mar­ried Mary Cas­tle. He would be my 4th great-grandfather. He has lin­eage from Elder John Strong.
    Thanks, Bar­bara Strong

  28. Jan­u­ary 30, 2014
    After long search­ing, I found line from Simeon Strong, who was my 4th great-grandfather. 3rd great-grandfather was Jonathan Strong, 2nd great-grandfather was Her­man L Strong, 1st great-grandfather was Joseph Weller Strong. My grand­fa­ther was Henry Mil­ton Strong, my father was Mil­ton Henry Strong. Through Jedediah’s lin­eage. Jede­diah was born on August 7, 1667, died July 24, 1689. Jede­diah was the 3rd child born to Elder John Strong and Free­dom Wood­ward. They had 13 children.

  29. Any­one who has updated infor­ma­tion to share with the SFFA should for­ward it to us as we are con­tin­u­ing to add to our updated lines.

    I am spread­ing the word to all my cousins and one aunt who never knew about their ances­tors who were descended from Jede­diah Strong, the third child of Elder John. No one remem­bers hear­ing about our his­tory any fur­ther back than my great-father
    Joseph Weller Strong. They are so delighted with all the search­ing I have done. Many very famous peo­ple came from Elder. I feel as if I know him per­son­ally; I have done lots of read­ing. I found out recently that Henry Alvah Strong, b. 1837 d. 1919, was a part­ner with George East­man of Rochester.NY. Henry Strong became the Pres­i­dent of KODAK !!! They were both great phil­an­thropists. You must look this up–great story.

  31. I am thrilled to find this web­site. My sis­ter and I are research­ing the Strong fam­ily line and we are descended from Jede­diah Strong. Stephen Strong Jr.
    came to Nova Sco­tia in 1762 and was a Bap­tist and farmer. Why did he move there? Would like to more details if pos­si­ble. My father Arthur Owen Strong was born in Nova Sco­tia and died in Van­cou­ver, B.C. Canada where I live.

    When and where is the Strong Fam­ily reunion in 2015?
    Cather­ine ( Strong) Paris

  32. For Jonathan David­son, I, too, and direct descen­dant of Luther Strong. My records state that Luther was a Cap­tain in the War of 1812. I am seek­ing more infor­ma­tion but have not found any
    at this point.

  33. Dear rel­a­tives, I found the site of some­thing very spe­cial to the Elder John line from his son Elder Ebenezer Strong. This site I’m list­ing is from the His­toric Northamp­ton Museum (just type this into SEARCH. Find the “Col­lec­tions” sec­tion and there will open up this fab­u­lous col­ored pho­to­graph of a Joined Chest. But you must read the top of the chest…in large block carved let­ters is SARAH STRONG She was the 4th child of Ebenezer Strong and Han­nah Clapp. I couldn’t believe my eyes !!! It was prob­a­bly kept by a fam­ily mem­ber and never dis­carded; how great was that? Here the whole world can see some­thing that really belonged to and was cher­ished by her. It is price­less in value and is 316 years old. If you travel to Northamp­ton make sure you stop to see this.
    The Strong Fam­ily is a gift to all Amer­i­cans, In this day and age we must all sup­port this great nation with all our might. That’s what this fam­ily stood for before us and we should stand for now. Fly your flag every day, weather permitting.…Love you all, Bar­bara V. Strong
