    Notes 
    • Michael's parents are listed by other researchers as either George Michael Strouth and Ula Minter, or Henry Strouth and Dianah Armstrong. I don't know which of these are correct (if either of them are). I think maybe one came from a book written by Peggy Strouth Scott called "The Strouth Family." I haven't seen the book so don't know where she got her information. George Michael and Ula did get married in Botetourt County, VA and could be the right age for Michael parents.

      There is also, in the 1850 Giles County census, a:

      Deanah Stow (Dianah Strouth?) 75 Mulatto, living with Joseph W. (28), Rebecca (W), Mancy R, James W. Mary, and Joshua (33); Joseph and Joshua are also listed as Mulatto.

      This is probably Dianah (Armstrong) who married Henry Strouth. If Joseph and Micheal really are brothers, this would seem to confirm the Dianah & Henry Strouth parentage. However, Dianah, Joseph and Jacob are all listed as Mulatto. No census lists Michael as Mulatto. In future census (1870, 1880) Joseph is listed as white. Could it be only Dianah was Mulatto and so they listed her two sons, that she was living with at the time, Mulatto as well?

      Until I am able to get to Virginia or come across more documentation on the Strouth's, there are no firm answers. If anyone has documentation actually proving the parents of Michael, please share.
