Sarah Fowler Strang Feb 14 1761- March 3, 1839

At one time the name of Joseph Strang was a familiar one to the citizens of the town of Cortlandt. He was a man looked up to in the com-
munlty, as one worthy of respect and confidence. The trust reposed In him was uever betrayed. He held the of-fice of justice of the peace at the time of his appointment. This is one of the stations a postamster is permitted to occupy under the postal regulations, and he filled both offices accept-ably and well. The postofilce was lo-cated on Main street, but the exact place is not positively known. Judge Strang was appointed June 16, 1840, by John M. Niles, who was postmas-ter general under President Martin Van Buren. Judge Strang served two terms In the state legislature, 1830-40, as member of assembly from this assembly district. He also represented the town of Cortlandt as supervisor. He was proprietor for several years of the wire mill at Oregon, where he carried on a large and prosperous business. He was a member of the well known Strang family of this county, a direct descendant from the I/Estranges, of New Rochelle, whose ancestors fled from religious persecution in the old world, to endure struggles and privations in the new, rather than stifle their heartfelt convic-tions. Mr. Strang was born in Yorktown Dec, 1795, and died in Peekskill Dec. 29, 1864. —
