Harriet is said to be the daughter of Jacob STRAUB & Hannah GORDON, but she is not in their household in either the 1840 or 1850 census.  I suspect Harriet was orphaned and that Jacob was her uncle.

ATKINS will continue to carry on the business at the same stand, where he respectfully solicits the patronage of his friends an the public.

14.  "Carroll County Biographies:  Jacob Straub."  A Goodly Heritage.  Supplement #1, Spring 1975 (online at the Carroll County "Illinois Trails" web site):
Jacob Straub (1808-1889) was the first of three brothers to come from Snyder County, Penna., to Carroll County.  He came to this country in 1854, and settled on a farm three miles west of Shannon.  Later he moved to Manson, Iowa, where he died.  In Pennsylvania, he had married Hannah Gordon; and they were the parents of five children: Harriet, the wife of John C. Atkins of Shannon; Lucinda, the wife of John Q.A. Clark of Savanna...
Yes, Jacob & Hannah were the parents of five childen, but not these five.  Harriet and Lucinda are, at most, adopted.  Jacob & Hannah's first two children were Hannah and Susan, not Harriet and Lucinda.
