"Dr. George W. Strait was born in Stephentown, NY April 7, 1811. Dr. Strait's father was Shadrach Strait, a native of Rhode Island, and where also his grandfather, Samuel Strait, was born (and was a school-fellow with General Nathaniel Greene), and served in the Revolutionary War, so that the doctor is descended from god, patriotic New England stock. Dr. Strait received a common-school educaiton; when at fifteen years of age, passing a rigid examination by the superintending committee, he was licensed to teach and taught district schools with success for six years. At twenty he entered the office of Dr. Matthew Turck, at East Nassau, studying his profession; thence with Dr. Shipman in Onondaga Co., NY; thence he entered the Berkshire Medical College, connected with Wiliams College (Williamstown, Mass.), where he was graduated on the 3rd of December, 1834. Dr. Strait, after leaving college, commenced the practice of medicine at Clinton, Dutchess Co., NY, remaining three years; then he removed to Philedelphia, residing there one year. He then located in New York City, where he practiced successfully for four years. His health giving way in consequences of hard work and the climate, he was obliged to remove, and located at East Nassau, in 1841. There he has since continued to practice with marked success, having a ride in the towns of Rensselaer and Columbia Counties. From his large experience and practice he is called in frequent consultations with the abablest and most extensive practioners in the two counties named. He was four years a justice of the peace, and such was his fairness and sound judgement that no decision of his was ever appealed to the higher courts. Although repeatedly offered, he ever declined further official positions, feeling it the highest honor to give his whole time to his laborious and delicate profession. Dr. Strait was married May 11, 1834, to Miss Mary Harris of Stephentown, having by her two daughters - Hannah Elizabeth and Mary Jane, both whom married, and the former died. Mrs. Dr. Strait died January 22, 1845. Dr. Strait was again married April 16, 1846, to Miss Emily Cole of New Lebanon (Columbia County), NY. From this marriage there were four children, three sons and one daughter, the daughter dying at nine years of age, and Mrs. Emily Strait died May 2, 1855. Alfred, the eldest son, is a mechanic; Lorenzo, the second son, is a farmer, and has been justice of the peace for several yers. He enlisted, when but a boy, in the volunteers in 1865, near the close of the war. The war terminating, he enlisted in the United States Army, and served three years, mainly on the Texas and Indian frontiers, when he was honorably discharged. George W. Jr., the third son, is a farmer. They have all married, and are residents of Nassau (Rensselaer County), NY, where they are respected as good citizens." From "History of Rensselaer County" by Nathaniel Sylvester Bartlett. It was published in 1880.
