Lewis Stong (father) was the son of Conrad Stong, who was also a native of Horsham township, born March 17, 1815.  He was a stone mason by occupation, but spent the greater portion of his life in agricultural pursuits.  He spent his boyhood on what is now the Ingersoll farm, which was owned by his father.  He obtained his education at a pay school in the vicinity, taught by one of the Cleaver family.  He subsequently purchased a farm in Hatfield township, where he engaged for several years in farming.  He then removed to Philadelphia, where he resided for two years.  Returning to Montgomery county, he purchased a small farm of five acres on which he resided until his death, which occurred May 18, 1892.  His wife, Sallie McGooken, was a native of Ireland, where she was born in 1836.  She came to America in early womanhood and resided in Montgomery county the remainder of her life.  She died May 18, 1900.  The children of Mr. and Mrs. Stong:  Frank; Elizabeth, born February 9, 1861, wife of Charles Weber, and resides in Philadelphia; Anna Marie, born April 11, 1862; Lewis, born January 31, 1864; Sarah Jane, born October 10, 1865, married George Yerger and resides in West Philadelphia; Mary Catharine, born March 13, 1867, married Patrick Byron and resides in Philadelphia; Philip, born April 17, 1869, married Mary Devine and resides in Philadelphia; Camilla, born February 27, 1871, died December 14, 1871; Peter, died in infancy.

Frank B. Stong acquired his education in the public schools of Hatfield township and Montgomery township.  On leaving school he engaged in farming pursuits, which have occupied his attention ever since.  In 1900 he purchased the farm on which he lives.  It contains sixty acres of excellent land in a high state of cultivation.  He has improved it greatly during his ownership.  He is a progressive and successful farmer, and a popular citizen, being highly esteemed in the community in which he lives.  In politics Mr. Stong is a Democrat.  In religious faith the family are Catholics.  Mr. Stong is unmarried.
