    Notes 
    • Per the 1900 Texas Census, his middle initial was J, and he was born in Texas. However, according to his descendants, his middle name was Everett. They also list his place of birth as Indian Territory. At the time of the 1910 Federal Census, twelve year-old Earl was living in Comanche County, Oklahoma, and enumerated with Levi and Sarah Hoskins as a foster child. His father, Ralph, was living in New Mexico at the time, with his new wife and his younger brother Ernest. One of Earl's daughters told Charles Strong that Earl disliked his new stepmother, whom he called "the old lady" and ran away from New Mexico. The relationship, if any, between the Strong family and Levi Hoskins is unknown.

      At the time of the 1930 Census, Earl and his wife, along with their five children, were living in Chandler, Grady County, Oklahoma. Living with them, as well, was his niece, Agnes Strong, and her four month old daughter, Peggy Lynn.

It was also stated that for the prior 50 years he had been self-employed in the Agriculture business. His address was shown as 2125 South Prospect, Porterville, California. The informant was Velma Powell, his daughter, and she was shown as having the same address.

    • Ralph and Mary Ella (Hall) Strong were the parents of nine sons. They were married in 1878 in Hunt County, Texas. According to a transcription of Hunt County Marriages, R.B. Strong married Ella "Wall." Charles Strong examined the actual marriage certificate, and noted that the last name of the bride was clearly HALL. The compiler of "Hunt County, Texas, Marriages 1847-1911" either misread the original, or made an error while transcribing the record. The license was issued on 4 October 1877, the marriage was on 4 May 1878, and the license was filed on 21 May 1878. Ralph and Mary Ella can be found in neighboring Collin County at the time of the 1880 Federal census.

      There were several other Strong bride and grooms listed in the transcription of Hunt County Marriages. R.B. Strong's marriage was the earliest however. It does not appear that any of the other Strong's were related to Ralph. Nor did there appear to be any other Strong families living in Hunt County at the time of the 1880 census,
