Strader Family Genealogy Forum
I just started researching my family tree and when I read some of your earlier posts it seems like there might be a connection between your Strader research and what little I know. My grandfather was William Franklin Strader, born 1872 in Illinois, died 1949 in New Harmony, Indiana. Married at least twice. My aunt has an obituary of his earlier wife, Aida, born 1876, died 1908. She was buried in the Greenup, Illinois cemetery. Five children; Fred, Jesse, Johnny, Leafy?, Wayne. He later married my grandmother, Elmira Smith of New Harmony, Indiana. They had five children. My aunt also has a marriage license of a Samuel Strader of Coles County dated July 27,1871 who married an Amanda McQuistian of Cumberland County.
Does any of this correspond to your research? Any help you could give me would be greatly appreciated!
