Elder John Strong biography

This account of the life and genealogy of Elder John Strong was published in the book "Families of the Wyoming Valley: biographical, genealogical and historical. Sketches of the bench and bar of Luzerne County, Pennsylvania", on pages 367-368, part of the biography of Benjamin Ford Dorrance, who married Ruth Woodhull Strong, daughter of Schuyler Strong, a descendant of Elder John Strong.

Although his ancestry differs from other sources, the account of his life in America is quite informative, stating that at the time the book was published (in or before 1885), Elder John Strong's descendants numbered more than 30,000.
