I have had no reply from George Norma nor do I expect one. I have no information concerning his Strait Ancestry. But, living in Bowling Green, you might want to plan on attending our reunion at the Halifax Community center May 27. You can see the reunion notice on the Allen Co. web page -http://www.rootsweb.com/~kyallen
Look under Publications, Information Help.
Many descendants of David Nancy Briggs Strait of Va. and N.C. migrated to Allen (then Warren) Co. and many stayed there.
There remains (barely) at Halifax the home of Israel Bettie Railey Strait as well as a small graveyard where they were buried on a corner of their farm. Israel was the son of Grey Benj. Strait, grandson of William Strait and great grandson of David Nancy Briggs Strait. And Israel was the brother of my Great grandmother, Sarah E. Strait Dobson Atwood.
