Children said to be with Sarah STRAUB born in Lehigh Co., PA:
1?  Lewis Elmer HEINTZELMAN, b. 30 Jul 1859; d. 28 Mar 1943, Lehigh Co., PA
2.  Gretchen HEINTZELMAN, b. 25 Sep 1863

The problem with Lewis being their child is that in the 1860 census, Stephen and Sarah were living separately and apparently unmarried.  Nor is there an infant living with Sarah, nor any infant Lewis in the county who appears to be him.  Yet Lewis does appear in the 1870 census (æ 10) and 1880 census (æ 21) living with Sarah's parents, suggesting they may very well be his functional grandparents.  So, are we simply wrong about Lewis's age?  Even if Sarah was pregnant when she married Stephen (after the 1860 census), we would expect Lewis to be at least a year younger, more likely 18-24 months younger, than he is.  Was Lewis illegitimate and was Stephen then pressured to marry Sarah?  Or was Lewis adopted?  There were many orphans about in the wake of the Civil War, and his being adopted seems the most likely possibility.  A check of county court records should reveal guardianship papers for him.

Sarah STRAUB is living with her parents as Sarah STRAUB in Lynn Township.

3a.  1870 Census Every-Name-Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com):  can't find Stephen or Gretchen.  Lewis is living with Jacob & Catharine STRAUB.  I also tried searching for a Granville with a mother named, Hanna, in case he's her child from a former marriage, but not found.

3b.  1870 Census Images (online at Ancestry.com; Image #24 of 60):  Lynn Ville P.O., Lynn Twp., Lehigh Co., PA, Roll M593_1363, p. 400B, PN 24, 159/169, enumerated 19 Jul 1870, official enumeration date 1 Jun 1870 (extracted by Diana Gale Matthiesen):
Straup Jacob 52 M W Farmer 3000 550 Penna

Jacob & Catharine are believed to be Lewis's maternal grandparents.

If Jacob & Cathrine are Lewis's maternal grandparents, it's odd that he's called, "Servant."  I also have no explanation for Lewis's odd marital status.

Elias & Maria are supposedly Howard's maternal grandson, so here again, it seems odd he was called, "Servant."

5.  1890 Census:  the 1890 Census Population Schedules were destroyed.

6.  1900 Census Every-Name-Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com):  Stephen is deceased, and Hannah not found, at least she's not indexed in Lehigh County as anything like Hannah HEINTZELMAN.
