2.  1870 Census Every-Name-Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com):  can't find, and with given names like Gottleib and Elmira, they should be easy to find.  I even did pages-by-page searches of Stoystown, Quemahoning Twp., and Paint Twp.  I can't find John MAUCK/MOCK, either.  Jacob's parents were in Paint Twp. in the 1850 and 1860 census, and I can't find them in 1870, either.  Sounds like the enumerator missed an area or pages are missing.

The page is so faded I can barely read it, either at Ancestry.com or at Genealogy.com nor apparently could the indexer(s) because no one in the family is indexed.  The Farm Schedule might at least prove this is Gottlieb STRAUB.  John & Christina (STRAUB) KOCHER not found or indexed, but many households in Somerset County are totally unreadable, so they could be here.

The Daily Tribune, Johnstown, Thursday evening July 13, 1916, page 13:

Charles Gottlieb Straub died suddenly at his home at Stoyestown at 3:30 o'clock yesterday morning of heart failure.

Mr. Straub was born in Germany July 26, 1844.  The greater part of his life was spent in Somerset County.  In his early youth he and his parents came to America and settled at the present site of Windber, where he followed the tanners' trade till the spring of 1890, when he located on a farm about one and one-half miles west of Stoyestown, where he lived and reared his family of 11 children.  He later sold his farm and moved to Stoyestown, where he lived a retired life since January 1904.  Mr. Straub was a well-known and respected citizen and the community very much mourns his loss.  He is survived by his widow and the following children: A. H. Straub and Mrs. Emma Bantley, of Scalp Level; Mrs. G. L. Dobson and Mrs. Thomas Stokem, of Stoyestown; Mrs. J. G. Kocher, Jacob and Charles G. Straub of Johnstown; H. W. Straub, of Cleveland, O.; Dr. G. L. Straub, of Welch, W. Va.; Dr. Theodore Straub, of Somerset, and R. R. Straub of Boswell.  The funeral will be held in the Lutheran Church at Stoyestown, at 10 a. m. Friday, with interment in the I.O.O.F. Cemetery at Stoyestown.
