James Harrison Strange, II
Learn about removing the ads from this memorial...
Birth: Apr. 4, 1827
Franklin County
Georgia, USA
Death: Jul., 1863
Banks County
Georgia, USA

James II was named for his father's son James Harrison I so to distinguish between the two, we have James 1, James II.
The Strange family carried family names down generation after generation so it can get confusing especially if one is not familiar with the family or done extensive search.
James, John, Seth and William were very popular Strange family names.

James I married Susan Elizabeth Jones, being son of James' dad William, Seth Sr's son and had 2 known kids w/Susan.
James II here, son of William Sr and Polly, married Nancy Gordon about 1853, she was born abt 1828 South Carolina, so married quite young which is no surprise for those times.
James wife Nancy Gordon was living with a grandson 1870
and in 1880 with a son, she died after that.

James II and Nancy had 2 daughter's, ONE SON before he went to war.

James II volunteered for service in the War between the States entering as a private in Co A 24th GA Reg. He was captured at the Battle of Gettsburg July 3 1863 and upon his release nothing further was heard from him, family presumed he was dead from some serious war injury.
Memorials were held for him at his home place of his grandfather, John Strange Sr where the family lived.
Nancy continued to live at the John Strange family home
until her death abt 1883.
New info has found that Ashland is just an address and is at lest 7miles from this actual Strange Cemetery by the John Strange Sr home. Google Map shows the distance of the Ashland PO compared to the actual Strange Cemetery at the John Strange home as 7miles.
