Default Small grouping to Generalmajor Paul von Strantz

I am wandering off to this part of the WAF for the first time. As I normally collect Third Reich general rank uniforms, insignia, groupings etc..., I have only touched the Imperial Armies as part of the early life of the individuals whose items I collect.

Today, I picked up this little grouping to Generalmajor Paul von Strantz (1859–1928) and am having difficulties finding information on him. The fact that several of his relatives also served with general ranks doesn't exactly make it easier.

1. Can anyone point me to where I could find a bio/military career/more information on his life?

2. There were some buttons that came along with his stuff and I have no clue whatsoever what they might be for. I should add that apparently the entire family estate was recently found (I was late to the party). There were several items that had also belonged to his brothers/the other generals so I am not sure the buttons really belonged to him.

Thanks for taking your time... Kurt

Thanks to the help of Shawn & Johnny R, I was able to solve the button question!
The buttons show the family crest of the "von Strantz" family, pretty decadent https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Strantz_(Adelsgeschlecht)

Any more info on his military career?
