That is likely him that is buried there with his younger brother Calvin P. Strong in Village Cemetery in Peru, Vermont. The top of the stone had another inscription also, but was broken off and most of the information is lost. All that is left is the year of death, 1862, Æ 17 ys., 8 ms. and matches up with the death record.
From the History of Peru, Vermont, p. 37: "Gracie m. Wm. C. Strong, who went to the war, and while he was there two of their sons died at her mother's of diphtheria."
