Ezra Strong

We could not determine if Strong had married his wife, Lois Bailey, prior to his journey to Utah. She appears with him on the 1850 census, but we could not find marriage information on them.  Their surname is misspelled in the 1850 census as "Shong."  Ezra's tombstone in the Woodland, Cowlitz County, Washington cemetery carries a death date of 3 April 1877.
