bullet  Research Notes:

The estate administration documents for Mary Strong, Dec'd, establish that Matilda had died by the time her share of Mary's estate was available for distribution in 1870. Since only Tabitha was mentioned as her minor heir, one would presume she was the only child of John and Matilda. But, estate proceedings for John Strong, Dec'd, indicate there was a minor heir named Elizabeth Thompson. Who was Elizabeth? Since census records show only Martha as a child of Francis and Paralee Jane Thompson, it would seem Elizabeth must have been a daughter of Matilda. If so, that meant Matilda had died by 1865 and Elizabeth died between 1865 and 1870.
