Birth: 1836
Clarke County
Alabama, USA
Death: Jan. 22, 1903

CAPT. WATT STRONG, an old and honored citizen of Memphis, for many years a member of the Memphis bar, died yesterday afternoon at the Presbyterian Hospital at 4:10 o'clock. He belonged to one of Clark County's oldest and most honored families. He was a brother of Messrs. Dock and Wes. Strong, and also a brother of the late James Strong, who died a few months ago. He came over to see his brother while he was sick and little at the time, did his relatives and friends think he too, would die so soon, as he was such a robust and healthy looking man. He left this county shortly after the war to make his home in Memphis. The Commercial Appeal of the 23rd last, contains a notice of his death. Having accumulated a comfortable fortune, he did not take an active part in the practice of his profession of late years, but resided for the most part upon his estate at Galloway, Tennessee. He was for many years an official member of the First Methodist Church of this city, and so continued to the time of his death. Capt Strong was never married. --Jan 29, 1903
