Sarah is Christina's child from her former marriage to John STRAUB.  Martha is Valentine's child from his former marriage to Mary REED.  The census indicates that Elmira is surnamed STRAWL, but she is the child of Valentine & Christina and is surnamed SAVAGE.  I cannot place Mary WEINER.

p. 912 STRAUB, William.  Farmer and stockman, Berrysburg, Pa., was born in Schuylkill county, Pa., September 21, 1831; son of John and Christiana (Hime) Straub.

John Straub was also born in Schuylkill county, and was a son of John Straub, farmer and mill owner of that county, where he died.  John Straub, Jr., was also a farmer, and cultivated several rented farms in his native county, where he died in 1845.  His wife Christiana Hime, was born in Northumberland county.  Their children were: Angeline, deceased, wife of Jere [Jeremiah] Matter, engineer; William; Elizabeth, deceased, wife of David Seal [SEALE]; Samuel, Lykens township, Dauphin county; Amos, farmer, Mifflin township; Sarah, died young; Mary, wife of John Wetmore[WITMER], Seven Points, Northumberland county.  Mr. Straub was a Democrat.  He was a member of the Lutheran church.  The second husband of Mrs. Straub, was Valentine Savage; they had a daughter, Alice, wife of Henry Hamhulse, of Schuylkill county.  Mrs. Savage died at the home of her son, William Straub, in 1880...

The daughter of Valentine SAVAGE/SAVIDGE & Christina HEIM was named Elmira, not Alice, and she married William Henry UMHOLTZ.
