"Biography and Reminiscences of the Hon. Selah B. Strong"
Charles B. Moore
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."
