Now, That’s a Strange Name

This strange ancestor lived to be 88 years old, and he fathered 17 children. At the time of his death, he had over 280 grandchildren, well when including grandchildren, great grandchildren and great-great grandchildren! What a legacy!

  1. I have a couple of le Stranges on side branches of my family tree (not direct relations), but I can honestly say that none were “blessed” with the given name Lot.

    BTW: I LOVE that piece from The South Carolina Historical and Genealogical Magazine! 280 children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren… WOW!

  2. I wonder if Lot Strange knew Preserved Fish, born 1679 in Providence RI, son of Thomas Fish and Grizzel Strange. Preserved (and his son Preserved Jr.) are often my entry into the “names that are odd to modern ears” discussions.
