Allen and Sarah Bowlin
Sarah Bowlin was a daughter of Hiram and Rebecca Strong and thus a younger sister of James R. Strong. This picture
was probably taken in the early 1900s.

William Strong, Steamboat Captain
William Strong was a son of Samuel Strong of Smith and DeKalb Counties, Tennessee, who in turn was one of the five Strong
brothers who came to Smith County after the death of their father, James, in Rockingham County, North Carolina. William
was thus a first cousin of my Hiram Strong.
William was a steamboat captain on the Cumberland and Ohio Rivers. This photograph was taken about 1880 in Nashville,
after he had retired.
Hulda Jablonsky (aka Pepping)
Hulda Jablonsky (aka Pepping) was one of three children of Gottlieb Jablonsky and Augusta Rosalie Pepping nee Baerwinkel.
Since Gottlieb was the uncle of Charles Jablonsky, that means Hulda was his first cousin, although she was much closer in
age to his daughter, Alice Jablonsky. Since both Hulda and Alice married young men from Vernon County, Missouri, they
may have had a closer relationship than is known. This photo was taken about 1910.
