Samuel D Strain Family
Posted by: Deborah (Debbi) Geer (ID *****8816) Date: November 19, 2004 at 05:20:40

Seeking additional information on the Samuel D Strain family:

Samuel D - b Dec 1858 AR
Leah (nee Dixon), wife - b Apr 1871 KY (prob Carter Co)
William M, son - b Jun 1894
Lucy E, dau - b May 1897
Carmella, dau - b Apr 1899
Gordon, son - b abt 1908; d bef 1920
John, son - b abt 1910

The family can be found living in Big Creek Township in 1900, 1910 and 1920 (census).

By 1920 son William had married Nellie M (b abt 1896 MO). They had 3 children by 1930 (all b MO) - Berdell Dorothy b abt 1919, Samuel G b abt 1925 and Etsel R b abt 1929. In 1920 and 1930 William and his family were living in Springfield, Greene Co, MO.

In 1930 Samuel D and Leah were split for some reason. Samuel was living with William and his family, whereas, Leah was still in Big Creek Township, Taney Co MO with daughter Lucy and son John.

Most likely Carmella had married by 1930 but I have been unable to find her.
