    Strub Jennie 16 F W Domestic Servt   Canada / /  
Her name is definitely "Jennie Strub" and her age is definitely 16, but surely she is Anna.  As a servant in the household, the informant may not have known her well, and I've seen worse errors in the census, especially with regard to boarders.  Otherwise, I cannot account for Anna in 1870, nor can I account for Jennie other than in this one record.  There were no other STRAUB/STROUB/STRUB/etc. families in DeKalb County at this time, except for Anna and her presumed sibllings, and there were no other STRAUB/STROUB/STRUB/etc. families from Canada in all of Illinois
