Photo of Daniel W. Strong

From: "Edward Hodges" ehodges@ix.netcom.com

Three years ago, I asked for your help in locating the death date and burial site for Daniel W. Strong – co-founder of the Central Pacific Railroad. As you can see ... your help proved fruitful. But wait – there's more – I did more digging and found a descendant of "Doc" Strong who had a photograph of him – this is a big deal – because – up to this time, no publically available image of him has been available. Thanks to Peggy Gailbraith – Strong's photo is available ...

Does anyone know how I can contact Margaret Galbraith? I would like to get her person to use the photo in a video we are producing for the Truckee railroad museum.

The Sierra Nevada route over which the Central Pacific Railroad was actually built, came at the suggestion of Dr. Daniel W. Strong, a druggist of Dutch Flat.
