Robert and Lucy James had 13 children, mostly girls: Martha Tabb who died at 25 and left three sons; Mary Ann; Emily P.; Sarah J.; Hamilton (who died at birth); Georgia; Lucy James, our ancestor, who died at 22 and left one daughter; Elizabeth H. (Lizzie); Nancy B.; Susan (who died in childhood); Robert Donnell; Edward; and Margaret. Robert Strong (only 54) and his daughters, Susan and Margaret probably died of malaria, for it was reported that "The malaria fever killed many of our people from 1849-1856." In his will, Robert decreed that his two sons, Robert and Edward, be sent to a college of religious influence from age 16 to 21. Robert Donnell may not have lived to full manhood, but Edward did, dying in 1919 at age 70. The Robert Strong home was still standing near the family cemetery in 1956, occupied by the Routts, descendants of one of his daughters.
