Regarding Cecil B. Strange.
1. Cecil B. Strange Family
Cecil B. Strange is my uncle. I grew up in Mulberry, Florida and fondly remember him. He built his children a fish pond which is still there. The house is long gone. That area of Mulberry was all “company” housing owned by IMCC phosphate mining. This is the company that employed Uncle Cecil for all the grounds upkeep of their offices plus the local swimming pool.
