4. William Addams Reitwiesner, compilier. Ancestry of Barack Obama. For the record, I learned of OBAMA's STROUP connection from this web site ca. 2004. At the time, I already had OBAMA's STROUP ancestry online, from Louise Eliza STROUP backwards, because I, too, descend from Johann Pieter STRAUB I, the 1733 emigrant from Großgartach, Württemberg, to Philadelphia, PA. I have a web site dedicated to STRAUB/STROUP where lines of descent from Johann Pieter are followed until they "daughter out."
