bullet  General Notes:

See general notes on his father, William H. Strum, for facts shared by decendent Bill Strum regarding birth and death dates.

The 1900 Federal Census for Stoney Creek, Nash Co., N.C., District 66, page 243B, dated June 2, 1900 records W. B. [D] (Feb 1857 - NC/NC/NC) and Nannie (July 1869 - NC/NC/NC) with children George (March 1889), Edie (March 1887), Clide (Dec 1891), Cora (April 1893), Bessie (Jan 1894), and Annie (Aug 1895). W. B. [D] is 1 page over in the census record from his father, W. H. Strum. W. B. and Nannie have been married X years. Nannie has had 5 children of whom 4 are still living.

The 1910 census presents an interesting senario in that it appears Cora, Bessie, and Annie [from 1900 census above] are Nannie's children from another marriage and George, Edie, and Clide [from 1900 census above] are William's children from another marriage ... [Lucy Frazier]
