About a month before his death his parents had received a letter from him in which he stated that he was in the best of health. Lt. R.H. Meichanct, who sent the sad news, stated that a ring worn by Strayer had been sent home to his
father and that his other personal effects would be held for a reasonable time to await instructions as to what should be done with them. The remains of the young soldier were buried at Magdalena with military honors and will be later transferred to the National cemetery or sent to his parents.
