I’ve seen posts on saying that you have the Strader History book and are willing to help people locate relatives.

My mother-in-law (Juanita Rexine Johnson Stafford) had great-grand parents: William Kirts born about 1824-1866 and Mary Irene Strader born 12-23-1828 married in Coles Co., Ill. on 12-25-1846 and died 01-29-1907. I cannot find anything on either ones siblings or parents. Do you have anything on Mary Irene Strader…she was buried under Irene Kirts in Illinois. Other info: 1850 Census talks about Arrena Curtis being born in 1828 in INDIANA and living in Greesy Creek, Coles Co., Illinois. In 1960 Census, Arene Curts Birth 1829 in Dougas, Illinois and in 1970 Mary Kirtz 1830 Pennsylvania living in Prairie, Warren Co. Indiana and in 1900 Census under Irene Kirts bord Dec 1826 in Indiana living in Prairie Green, Iroquois, Illinois with son Thomas.

If you have any information concerning this line of the Strader family I would truly appreciate it if you would share it with me.

Hope to hear from you!
