Hi Mike,

I'm still trying to find out what my relationship is with Nat and Lizzy :)

I believe Lizzy was my great-grandmother's sister or possibly half-sister. I think they had the same mother, but possibly different fathers. Do you know Lizzie's maiden name, or any information about her family?

My great-grandmother was Myrtle Daisy Strong. She died in 1918 and a Mrs. Ellsbury handled the funeral arrangements. I believe that was Lizzie. Also, Rorsey Strong's Civil War Records (Daisy's father, and my great-great grandfather) state that he died at the home of Nathaniel Elsbury, a son-in-law. That would make Lizzie a daughter and sister to my great-grandmother, his daughter as well.

Here are some other names that may tie in:

Mary Ann Castor
Rorsey (Rosey) Strong
George Castor
Lizzie Strong
Janette Batchfield
Jacob Stansberry
Alfred Morford
George Strong

Can you shed any light on this puzzle? I'd appreciate any help you can offer!
