William J STRIEBY (William, John, Hans Michael) was born on 24 JAN 1838 in Kosciusko Co, Indiana. He died on 6 FEB 1879 in Kosciusko Co, Indiana.

William, known as "Red Bill" perhaps to distinguish him from a relative of the same name, applied for an invalid army pension on April 24, 1876, asserting that he was unable to carry on his former occupation of farming. His record shows he was enrolled at Fort Wayne, Indiana, September 24, 1861 in Company B, 30th Regiment and re-enlisted as a veteran volunteer, January 3, 1864 and was mustered out at Victory, Texas November 25, 1865 as a Corporal. He was twice hospitalized during his first period of service, once in Corinth, Mississippi and a second time in Evansville, Indiana. During his second period of service, he reported an injury at Pine Knob, Tennessee and an illness in Atlanta, Georgia. His widow, Mary E Strieby, made application for a pension (WC 192, 136) on April 1, 1879, giving her age as 39, stating she had not remarried and that there were no other marriages for her or her deceased husband. She presented the list of their children with birth dates, asserting they were the surviving children, all under age and that she was presently supporting them. Her mother-in-law, Elizabeth Strieby, and Margaret Strieby Wyland, a relative, supported her statements. Her death date was reported to the U. S. Pension Agent in Indianapolis. The children probably moved to another area after receiving their inheritance in 1901.

William married Mary E FOREDYCE, daughter of James J FOREDYCE and Margaret S BULL. Mary was born in 1840 in Ohio. She died on 10 OCT 1905.
