Note that the birth date listed is actually the date of his baptism. John Strong, Jr., and his wife Mary had nine children: Martin, Sherwood, John III, William, Nathaniel (our ancestor), Martha, Elizabeth, Matt, and Sarah. Two of the girls married men who were "Long Hunters"--frontiersmen and fighters who were often away from home. One of them, Samuel Crowley, was killed in Lord Dunsmore's War which is considered the first battle of the Revolution, thus, he is considered the first casualty of that war, and a monument is erected to his memory. John, Jr., died in St. Martin's Parish, Hanover, VA.
