About Preserved Strong

He moved to Lebanon, CT in 1714 and after 1720 to Coventry, CT. where he was one of the selectmen of Coventry. -------------------- Birth: Mar. 29, 1680 Death: Sep. 26, 1765

Preserved married his first wife Tabitha Lee on October 23, 1701. Tabitha was a step-daughter to Jedediah Strong, Preserved's father.

Preserved supposedly got his name because he was born in a "great snow storm, and preserved, 'notwithstanding its severity, and the extreme cold weather following.'" (from the book John Lee, by Sarah Marsh Lee, Norwich, 1878, p. 135)

They migrated to Lebanon, Connecticut about 1709; after 1730 they lived in Coventry, where Preserved served on the board of selectmen in 1730, '31, '34, and '35. Tabitha preceded him in death.

Preserved and Tabitha produced eight children:
