Mary's father's "Will was probated 10 Dec 1800 in Hardy Co., Va (W.Va) listing wife Barbara but did not have a Mary as dau listed. All genealogist agree a Will does not necessarily list all children and in the case of Valentine, all the historians and genealogists the author has contacted have indicated he likely to be the progenitor of all POSTs in the area of Hardy Co. to Upshur Co. W.Va in that time. "

Mary and John had at least nine children, including among them Martin, Sarah, Isaac, Michael, John Strader Jr., Barbara Strader (#60) , Elizabeth, Jacob, and Mary.

At the time the 1810 Census for Harrison County, Virginia was conducted, John and Mary had nine children living in the home. John was ~41. [Note: Mary, born in 1775, would have been 35 in 1810. There is a listing for 1 Free White Woman aged 26 to 44.] The census can be seen at this link.

Mary likely died in or just before 1817. On July 24, 1817, her husband married for the second time.
