Meet the Author

Former Historian General Eugene Aubrey Stratton passed away in Charlotte, N.C., on 14 October 2009 at the age of 81 years. “Gene” was the son of Rolland and Ruth (Holmes) Stratton born in Greenfield, Mass., on 2 December 1927. Gene married first Anne Husak in 1949. Anne, daughter of Nicholas and Mary (Tkacz) Husak, was born in Northampton, Pa., on 14 March 1926 and died in Silver Spring, Md., on 17 October 1969. Gene married second Ginger Watts in 1970. Ginger was born in Georgia on 8 October 1946 and died in Charlotte, N.C., on 6 June 2009.
Gene served in the United States Air Force and then attended George Washington University where he received his B.A. in Economics. He then went into Law school. Following college, he became a Case officer for the C.I.A. and later Director of two Federal Computer Centers. For eleven years, he lived abroad in England, Germany, Greece, and Mexico.
Gene was elected to the position of Historian General in September 1981. He was a member of the Massachusetts Society of Mayflower Descendants with eight Pilgrim lineages: Howland and Doty on his father’s side and Brewster, Alden, Hopkins, Cooke, Chilton, and Billington on his mother’s side. He had also belonged to and held offices in several of the Pilgrim Family Societies, the Colonial Clergy, Flagon and Trencher, the Baronial Order of Magna Carta, The Pilgrim Society, Old Plymouth Colony Descendants, and the Plymouth Old Colony Club.
His love of history and genealogy, particularly the Pilgrims, led him into writing numerous genealogical articles published in The American Genealogist, The New England Historical and Genealogical Register, The Mayflower Quarterly, and other similar publications. He was the author of several books written and published after his term as Historian General, including the widely acclaimed Plymouth Colony, It’s History & People 1620-1691 (1986), Applied Genealogy (1988), and several genealogical or historical mysteries. Members may recall his book Killing Cousins (1988), a story of how a series of murders were solved by a genealogist and aiding the local police. There were two other books of fiction, Cornish Conundrum (1999) and Fit for Fate: A Tale of Byzantine Intrigue in Modern Athens (2003).
