Joshua Mabry and Frances B. Strother

Joshua Mabry and Frances B. Strother. Joshua Mabry 1785-1836 and Frances B. Strother 1798-1862 married around 1816 and raised their children in Louisburg, Franklin County, North Carolina. Joshua was something of a brick wall. I chipped away for a while and it seems he may be a child of Reps Mabry of Warren County, NC. After Joshua’s death, Frances and her kids moved to Greene County, Alabama.

James L. Mabry. Joshua Mabry’s second born child is a mystery. Likely he is James L. Mabry 1820-1842 who led a short but adventurous life in Texas. He survived the Santa Fe Expedition only to perish on the Texas Navy schooner "San Antonio" when it disappeared in the Gulf of Mexico in 1842.

Her family was a mystery until all was revealed in the will of her maternal grandfather Benjamin Hart 1772-1851. Virginia's parents are Reuben Dean, Jr. and Lavinia Hart.
