      Died--On last Saturday night about 2 o'clock, Harry Strong, the little 4 months old baby boy of Mr. and Mrs. Strong. We extend to the bereaved parents our warmest sympathy.

      The Dublin Progress, 25 October 1888

      This is ASSUMED but not verified as certain, to be Ralph and Mary's son Harry who died as an infant. Four years earlier, Ralph had been living in nearby Callahan County, living and working at a railroad camp. It is assumed he was in Erath county for the same reasons. The family later moved back to North Texas, and then to Oklahoma.

    • Ralph and Mary Ella (Hall) Strong were the parents of nine sons.  They were married in 1878 in Hunt County, Texas.  According to a transcription of Hunt County Marriages, R.B. Strong married Ella "Wall."  Charles Strong examined the actual marriage certificate, and noted that the last name of the bride was clearly HALL. The compiler of "Hunt County, Texas, Marriages 1847-1911" either misread the original, or made an error while transcribing the record. The license was issued on 4 October 1877, the marriage was on 4 May 1878, and the license was filed on 21 May 1878. Ralph and Mary Ella can be found in neighboring Collin County at the time of the 1880 Federal census.

      There were several other Strong bride and grooms listed in the transcription of Hunt County Marriages. R.B. Strong's marriage was the earliest however. It does not appear that any of the other Strong's were related to Ralph. Nor did there appear to be any other Strong families living in Hunt County at the time of the 1880 census,
