Jane Reed Hello. I am not a Strunk or Holt ancestor BUT thought that you might be interested in knowing this picture of Mary is being used on other trees as "their" ancestor. I was even given the picture as my Mary Peel, married to Samuel Peel. She is on many trees as Mary Peel. I don;t know for sure who this is, but she does appear on many many trees. TY Jane Reed
