Nancy's surname is not McCAUSELAND, it's STRAUB.  Mary Lucetta's mother, Nancy (CUPP) STRAUB was born in OH, but her parents were born in PA.  Jacob may be Mary's brother-in-law, John Jacob Isaac E. McCAUSLAND, except that his birthdate is off one year and his parent's birthplaces are wrong; then again, similar errors were made with Bess and Nancy.

7a.  1910 Miracode Index of Ohio (online at Ancestry.com):  Mary and Bess were indexed "McCauland"; Bess was indexed "Bliza"!  Note that a wildcard search on "mcc*" turned up some records, but not this one.  I found them by searching on Mary in Marion County.
