John A. CLARK
Lucinda STROUP

Death apparently:  1900-1910, Savanna, Carroll Co., IL

Lucinda 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 Lucinda was orphaned and that Jacob was her uncle.

9.  "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.
