Historical NoteReturn to Top

Family of social and political activists.

Lyman W. Strong was a merchant who lived in Seville, Ohio. He was an opponent of slavery. His oldest son, Arthur Tappan Strong, died of "camp dysentery" in a Union army hospital at Ashland, Kentucky on February 28, 1862. Strongsville, Ohio was founded by John Stoughton Strong in 1816. Sydney Dix Strong moved to Seattle, Washington; the rest of the family are his direct descendants.

Tracy Strong, Jr., great nephew of Anna Louise Strong, was a youth educator in Germany for the U.S. military during and after World War II.
