Welcome to the William Strother Society Web Site

The William Strother Society is a family association dedicated to perpetuating the memories of our ancestors and furthering fellowship among the descendants of William Strother, the immigrant.  Founded in 1986 as the Society of Descendants of William Strother, it was incorporated in Virginia in 1992 as The William Strother Society, Inc.  The Society's members include descendants of William Strother and their families, related families, and others interested in the Strother family, throughout the United States and Europe.  In addition, we partner with the Library of Congress, State and local libraries, historical societies and genealogical societies, including the DAR and SAR.  Some of the more notable members of this amazing family are shown below.  
We appreciate your interest and invite you to enjoy the features of this web site.
