NYGBR v4 p49 (Apr 1873)
"...Thomas was the eldest son of Selah Strong, (third generation,) the first
of that name, and Abigail Terry, his wife, of Southold, LI; which Selah, the
first, was a younger son of Thomas Strong, (second generation,) of Northampton,
and Rachel Holton, his second wife...His great-great-grandmother, Abigail,
daughter of Thomas Terry, of Southold, LI, I think, was of a family no less
remarkable that any of the others, although its history is not so much in print
and not much known."
