This is the name of a recently established post-office in South Fork township, which takes its name from Prof. French Strother, who has resided there for seven years. There are three or four families and one general store in town, kept by Rev. Joseph Rowe. The country surrounding the place is a high and healthful prairie and is one of the most productive and beautiful farming regions in Monroe county. Strother is chiefly known as the seat of Strother Institute, which has for many years been a prominent institution of learning.
