Notes:  Nelson Astor Strome, known as Bud, was born 19 Jan 1913 in Greenside, Humbolt, Saskatchewa, Canada.  He was the sixth child of Astor Sands Strome and Julia Maud Detwiller.  His older siblings were Myrtle, born in 1900, Wilford, in 1902, Harvey in 1904, Bertha in 1909, and Eva in 1911.  His younger brother Frank was born in 1915.

In the 1916 Canada census of Saskatchewan, Humbolt, St. Peters Municipality, the family is enumerated on their homestead, on Sec. 32, Twp. 37, Range 19 W2, on the road to Englefeld.  Bud's sister Minnie was born in 1917.  By the 1921 Canada census, his brother Harvey had left home.  Bud's sister Dorothy was born in 1921, and brother James in 1926.

According to A History of Englefeld, 1903 - 1987, the family homestead was located at Greenside, and the children attended the Greenside School.  From this source, we know that in his younger years, Bud was active on the hockey and ball teams for Greenside.  He farmed on his father's homestead, and continued to raise cattle and grain after his father Astor passed away in 1947.  He built a new home in 1959, replacing the old homestead.  He served on the Wheat Pool, the Credit Union, and the St. Gregor Co-op.  He collected antiques, and made replicas of all the horse-drawn machinery from the early days.  He was a carpenter, helping friends and neighbors with furniture and various projects.  In his adult days, he took up curling.

On 6 Oct 1967, Bud married Faith Fidelia Fielder Leader, of Spalding, acquiring three step-children in the process.  Bud and Faith continued to live on the farm until moving into Englefeld in 1984.

Bud passed away suddenly on 12 Aug 1987 in Englefeld.  He is buried in the Englefeld Union Cemetery, Englefeld, Saskatchewan.
