Edna Strunk was the daughter of Crawford Strunk and Ruth Prosser, and was born in Michigan in the early 1880s. To date she has not been found on any census records, and there are only three known mentions of her in my records:


From the Grayling (MI) Avalanche, 10 Aug 1882:
"Mrs. C.E. Strunk and her two children were picking whortleberries a few days since, when the little ones found and interviewed a wasps nest, with such sharp results that Miss Edna's eyes were closed and Master Birney's limbs badly swollen from repeated stings."
(Grayling, MI Avalanche: 10 Aug. 1882)

From the obituary for Ruth Chase, probably in a Bear Lake (MI) newspaper, Aug. 1915:
"Mrs. Chase was a lady of unusual ability, a good wife, mother, friend and neighbor, respected and beloved by all who knew her. She leaves to cherish her memory her husband and four children: Edna Strunk of New York state, Bernie L. Strunk of Belding, Michigan, and Ruby and Myrtle Chase, who have been attending the State Normal College at Ypsilanti."


Letter from Myrl (Chase) Ijams to Claudia Reed, 19 July 1974:
"Edna Strunk married & her last name was "Barrington" if I remember correctly."
