In the entire book, there is not one STRAUB!  It appears Wagenseller has arbitrarily turned all STRAUBs into STROUBs, but STRAUB is the true/original surname while STROUB is either a phonetic mis-spelling of STRAUB or a mis-reading of the lowercase "a" in "Straub."

Shemory, Christiana, w of Adam, b Nov 25, 1807, d Sept. 14, 1892, aged 84 y 9 m 19 da.

Shemory, Hannah Maria, d of J. and M.A. b Jan 15, 1866; d Apr 24, 1877, aged 11 y 3 m 9 d.
Mary Ann must have been in the habit of telling a whopping fib about her age; either that or the stone has been mis-read.  Parkey A. SHEMORRY is our subjects' grandson.  My bet is that the elder Adam and his wife, Christiana, are Jacob's parents.
