Oh where oh where did James Strait come from? We know he was born as we have decendants from him through his son Hayes Strait, born June 21, 1822 in Brown Co, Ohio. James was born in VA Abt. 1798( according to info from the 1850 census)In the 1820 census of Brown Co. Ohio we have James Strait with a neighbor of Gabrial Hayes.He married Parthena Hayes! Her brother was Gabrial! The Hayes family was from VA and had connections to the Pindell and Prickett families. All these families migrated to Brown Co. Ohio. Also in the 1820,1830 and 1840 census of Brown Co Ohio there is a Augustin Strait and a Henry Strait.They were always close to where James was. Are they related? Can someone help us solve this mystery?
