Source:Strother, Edward L. Strother Family : 300 Years from Virginia to Louisiana published 2002, appears to be the most recent and thus most accurate attempt to reconstruct the Strother family line from the immigrant William Strother.

There are still some mysteries to be solved to properly place all Strother lines in the tree and there are many incorrect pedigrees circulating on the internet. Any contributions are welcome.

James Mason Strother b. 1752, d 1858 Fauquier, Va. m1 Jane Gibson, m2 Mary Fishback
"Descendants of Francis Gray" linked above shows a Strother-French-Mason connection. See pages 269-271.
Find A Grave shows him as the son of the above #14 James Strother and Martha French.

Richard Strother (HistSouFam V13 includes him in the family of #43 (above) William Strother and Catherine Dargan, without source. A careful reading of William's 1779 will indicates that Richard is not named as a son, but that a piece of land "granted" to Richard Strother and another piece which Richard and William (the testator) bought in common are left by William to his sons. Richard is probably some relation of William.)
