My STRAINS were in North Carolina in 1772, per 1850 census information.
By 1800 they were in Tennessee (where one of their children was born)
and by 1807 they were in Indiana. They settled in what was to become
Vigo County, IN. While most of the family remained in Indiana, a few
branched off into OK and CA during the early part of this century.
