I am so sorry. I forgot that I posted this message. Yes I am Gordon and Virginia's son Richard. I have been searching for information on Samuel Strader for quite some time but have come up with nothing. I ofcourse am also Samuel,s Great Grandson. The information that I have is that he was married to Catherine Ropertson who would be my Great Grandmother. I have no info on a previous marriage. Looking forward to anything that you can tell me. Again, I'm really sorry that I did not reply sooner. Thanks for your response.
