      Russell,
      . . . .  . . .

      I have been nosing around in the PA Strong's, Wenricks, Knepps, and Breons again.  I feel pretty comfortable that there were indeed two Strong Families in Mifflin County beginning about 1820.  Which one came first is anyone's guess.

      The first Samuel appears in 1815 in Derry Township as a freeman.   He continues there with his family until the second family appears.

      The strange thing is that both were named Samuel and both had a son William born about the same time.   One Samuel had wife named Eunice and the other Sarah.

      Ours is definitely the one with the wife named Sarah.  By reconstructing the early records we can place most of the Strong's into one family or the other.  Both Samuel's apparently died about the same time in the 1820's (sic. not if there were census records up until 1840 for our Samuel. - RGS) The widow's remained there living with one of their children until their deaths.

      I am planning to sort this all out and as soon as I get a time line together will share it with you.

      Karen

      Possible parentage from:

      Since 2003 two of Samuel's descendants through his son William Adelbert, have participated in a DNA Study of the STRONG Surname at FamilyTreeDNA http://www.FamilyTreeDNA.com . The results of these tests can be viewed at http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/~donegalstrongs/dnaresults.htm
      They are Kit #8880(a descendant of James Frederick Strong)  & Kit #16001(a descendant of Levi Strong)

      The results show that Samuel Strong is of Scot/Irish descent and is most likely descended from a James Strong AKA Schim Strang of York Co., PA

      > 1)   York County, Pennsylvania Strongs:   For many years there has been on-going discussion amongst many researchers concerning the origins of the lineage known as the "York County, Pennsylvania Strongs". descendants of one James "Schim" Strong or Strang.   James Strong is said by some to have come from Ireland; see the discussion at http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/~donegalstrongs/irplaces.htm#York
      Emmett Bratt suggests that  James Strong  is "belived to have landed on the ship Hampshire and settled into York Cty, PA in 1752"; see:
      http://geocities.com/Heartland/Meadows/9881/jstrong/jstrong.htm  It has been suggested by others that he came from Germany.   The fact that he married into a "Pennsylvania Dutch" family when he married the daughter of his employer, that his family were raised speaking German, and that  his Last Will and Testament was written in German, led many to conclude that he was in fact German.   No one has been able to trace his ancestry beyond establishing his date of birth, 2 February 1727.
      >
      >
      > Through the cooperation of two DNA project participants, Kits #17527 and #17528,  from amongst the descendants of one of James Strong's grandsons, Jacob Strong, we now have DNA evidence which tends to support the hypothesis that he was either from Scotland, or possible of Scots-Irish descent and from Ulster.   Our participants are members of The Jacob Strong Family Organization, of Salt Lake City, Utah.    The descendancy of members of this family from Jacob Strong is well documented, as is Jacob Strong's identity as a grandson of James Strong of York Co., Pennsylvania.

      >
      > While we do not have complete 25 marker results for Kit #17528 as yet, the haplotype results for Kits #17527 and #17528 so far closely match the "Assumed Strange of Balcaskie Haplotype".   This Assumed Haplotype is inferred from study of the DYS marker values accumulated from Kits #8881, 6680, 16001, and the addition of these latest kits.   I expect the PP3 portion of the Kit#17528 results will match those for Kit #17527.
      >.....
      Intriguingly, one might speculate that the Samuel Strong line of Mifflin County, Pennsylvania may be descended from James Strong of York County, Pennsylvania.    The close match of the DNA results, taken together with the fact that James Strong had several children, each of whom had descendants, not all of whom appear to have been completely and accurately traced through the records from his November 2, 1763 marriage to Maria Imenheiser  forward; that Samuel Strong's ancestry  has not been traced further back in time than his approximate date of birth circa 1790-1794;  and further with the geographical proximity of the point of origin of the two lines in Pennsylvania, suggest that further documentary research may result in finding a relationship.

      Since the date of this email the 25 marker results of #17527 and #17528 match those of #6680 (Samuel's descendant) 25-25 which means that there is a 99.9% likelihood that Samuel is descended from James Strong. Kit #16001 matched 23-25
