Re: Strang Burial Ground

I too am a Strang from the Maritimes.My great-grandfather was Ephraim Strang from Tidnish, New Brunswick.I started my family tree a couple of years ago and haven't got very far with the Strang side.
What I do have has led me to believe they came to Canada from N.Y. as United Empire Loyalists.I would like to find out when they arrived in Canada, when they arrived in N.Y. and from where.
I mentioned to my one remaining Strang member that I believed the Strang's originated from France and she was surprised to hear that.I still think that is probably the case.
Can you shed any light on this info or do you have information you can share.
Also, I have a cousin, Nelson Strang.His mother's surname was Nelson, which is where we believe his Given Name was derived, but isn't it interesting to find there were other Nelson's in the past.
I look forward to hearing from you.
