Birth and Baptismal Record for Thomas Strayhorn b.1791
Birth and Baptismal Record for Thomas Strayhorn b.1791
This is from the birth records for the Neshaminy Warwick Presbyterian Church in Warminster, Bucks County, Pennsylvania. It is the only record we have found for this Thomas, who apparently did not survive, because the name Thomas was used again in 1795 on Samuel's next male offspring. This is also the only record of Samuel's presumed first wife, Mary.

New London Presbyterian Cemetery, Chester County, Pennsylvania - Old Section
New London Presbyterian Cemetery, Chester County, Pennsylvania - Old Section
New London Presbyterian Church was founded in 1728. It is believed, albeit absent documentation, that Robert Strayhorn b.1733 and his son Samuel Strayhorn b.1769 are buried here. Samuel's sons Robert and Samuel and their wives are buried across the street in the newer section of the cemetery. The cemetery provides no comprehensive listing of persons interred here in the older section, and many headstones have either disappeared or been buried. But Robert was living nearby with his son Samuel prior to his death, and Samuel in turn lived with his son Robert in the years prior to his death.
