Strother does not appear in the 1810 or 1820 Prince William County census. However, he was in Prince William County, Virginia, in 1830. There was 1 male 5-10 years old, 1 male 30-40 years old, 1 male 40-50 years old, 1 female 5-10 years, and 2 females 70-80 years old.
The 1840 Prince William County census has Strother Reno's household with a male 60-70 and three boys 5-10 years old, plus 19 slaves.
Strother Reno's estate was inventoried on April 8, 1841, in Will Book Q, p. 483.
