      Jared Strang

      The subject of this sketch is a son of Nathaniel and Elizabeth Strang, and was born on Prince Edward’s Island, March 12, 1837. His ancestors were early settlers of New York, and his grandfather on his mother’s side was a participant in the Revolutionary war. Jared’s boyhood days were spent on his father’s farm. When ten years old, his father removed to West Duxbury, Massachusetts. In the spring of 1858 Jared came to California, via the Isthmus and soon settled in Sierra valley, joining his father, who had come in 1856, his mother having died when he was a small boy. They went into the cattle business, which they continued until 1867, when Jared purchased his father’s interest. He located a quarter-section of land, to which he has since added 260 acres, making 420 acres in all. Mr. Strang is a member of two firms, the heaviest cattle dealers in Sierra valley, handling from five to ten thousand heads annually. The firms are Rowland, Flint, Hainten, & Strang, and Strang & Humphrey, and they have been associated together for nine years. Mr. Strang mines to some extent, and is the sole owner of the Blue Gravel mine. He was married in November, 1865 to Eleanor Mickey of Illinois, by whom he had four children; viz., Ada, born October 6, 1866, died in 1870; Steven L., born October 20, 1867; Jared W., born October 1, 1871; Ida, born June 20, 1875. He was again married August 1, 1880 to Mrs. Lula Currier Robbins, daughter of Isaac C. and Elizabeth Currier of Androscoggin, Maine. By this union there has been one son, Earle L, born April 30, 1881. By her first husband, Mrs. Strang had one son, Herbert S. Robbins, born November 3, 1877. A view of their residence and surroundings can be seen on another page. Mr. Strang is a member of the Sierra Valley Lodge No. 184, F. &. A. M.
