Sub­ject: [STRONG] STRONG Fam­ily Photograph

I’ve “res­cued” an old pho­to­graph of Caro Reynolds STRONG dated 1895.  The
pho­to­graph does not include a stu­dio loca­tion or pho­tog­ra­phers
iden­ti­fi­ca­tion, how­ever, some­one has writ­ten the word “Cot­trell” along with
the name and date on the back of the pho­to­graph.  Based on lim­ited research
I was able to locate the fol­low­ing infor­ma­tion regard­ing Caro and her fam­ily
as follows:

Caro Reynolds STRONG b. 3 May 1875 in Pittston, PA to par­ents Theodore
STRONG (b. 25 Jan 1820 in Somers, CT) and Eliz­a­beth Deb­o­rah WILSON (b. 20
Jul 1838 in Pine Planes, NY).  Theodore was mar­ried twice and Eliz­a­beth was
his sec­ond wife with whom he had three daugh­ters, Helen Eliza; Caro
Reynolds; and Grace STRONG all born in Pittston, PA between 1874 and 1875.
Caro was a twin with sis­ter Grace STRONG.  Caro died 20 Aug 1967 in West
Pittston, PA.

I am hop­ing to locate some­one from the fam­ily so that this won­der­ful old
pho­to­graph can be returned to their care, if you are a mem­ber of this
fam­ily, or you know some­one who might be, please con­tact me.

  1. I found an entry you made in 2003 — that you had res­cued an Ehlers fam­ily Bible. That Bible belonged to my grand­par­ents George William Ehlers — his par­ents were Otto Ehlers and Mary Glunt. You said it said belong­ing to Lee Ehlers. He was my first cousin, also a grand­child of William and Sue Ehlers. He and his wife had sev­eral fam­ily heir­looms. Lee died sud­denly on July 10 2003 and his wife, Mar­i­lyn had died 6 months or so before. Evi­dently no one in the fam­ily in Ohio latched onto the fam­ily Bible. I was born in Ohio and moved to Phoenix, AZ in 1944 The notice came up as I have been doing fam­ily geneal­ogy research. I would be so excited to be able to get the Bible back in our fam­ily.
