Re: Winchester, Frederick County, Va.

Thanks again for posting the list of free African Americans of Winchester, VA. When I first read this list, I recognized only one of the names, Richard Strage (Strange), a son of Reuben Strange of Winchester, VA who was freed by Edward McGuire in 1817. Now, after further research, I recognize that several surnames on this list, including Jenkins, Leonard, Robinson, Williams, and possibly Walls, are related to Reuben Strange, his sons Richard and Reuben Jr., and other members of the African-American Strange family in Clarke and Frederick counties.
