Research Notes (source comments, unreliable information)

Floranna Delezenne (aka Delezell) may have been born about 1801 in New York, the daughter of Michael and Mary Delezell. She may have been the second wife of John Strang [b. 24 Nov 1777 in Ft. Ann, Washington County, NY or Stillwater, Saratoga County, NY; d. 4 Feb 1879 in Collins, Erie County, NY]. John's first wife may have been Elizabeth Histed/Husted [b. c.1779 NY; d. 29 Apr 1849, Erie County, NY], married 29 Nov 1797. He may have married Floranna 27 Oct 1850 at Collins MM (Orthodox). [unreliable source, primary and secondary sources quoted]

A William Palmerton [b. c. 1824] is shown in the 1850 Census in Collins. He would be too young to be Floranna's husband, but could reasonably be Floranna's son. (He could be one of the unknown children shown.)

In that census, William and his family live next door to a Floranna Palmerton, which is likely this person. She is shown as 49, so was born about 1801. It is very possible that Floranna's husband William was about the same age (or perhaps a little older, as Joshua was born in 1785) and died (or was not at the home of Floranna) in or before 1850.

Floranna is shown living with George (20), Elizabeth (16), and John (12), making Elizabeth another possible child that is shown as unknown.

By 1860, this William has added several household members that appear to be his own children, plus several that may be his siblings, and Floranna is no longer shown (maybe died?).
