Some secondary sources have assumed George's middle name is Peter, but George has a grandson named George Philip STRAUB, so might our subject's middle name be Philip?

Children born in Penn(s) Twp., Northumberland Co., PA [now Washington Twp., Snyder Co., PA]:
I found it nearly impossible to rationalize the children in the home from census to census.  There can be little doubt that they had more children than just the ones named here, but it is equally likely that some of the young people in their home between 1800 and 1850 were not their children.  The question is, of course, which ones?  And that's assuming there are no errors in the census records, which is never a safe assumption.

.  Abraham "Abe" STRAUB, b. 11 Feb 1793 is this date correct?  Did he die by 1800?
.  John STRAUB (or is he John George?)
(John) George STRAUB/STROUP (Sr.), b. 26 Nov 1800 
Benjamin STRAUB, b. 6 Oct 1802 
John STRAUB, b. 1804/5 named son, George Philip STRAUB 
.  (John) Henry STRAUB, bap. 1804/5 not the John Henry (b. 1770s) who married Barbara
Samuel  STRAUB, b. 3 Apr 1812 

.  Jacob STRAUB
.  Elizabeth STRAUB; m. Jacob MILLER
.  Susanna "Susan/Sue" STRAUB; m. Daniel STETLER
.  Rebecca STRAUB; m. Henry AMIG
.  Mary "Polly" STRAUB

Where is Abe?  He should be seven years old.  I double-checked the image and there are no sons indicated, but surely there were sons (see following censuses).  Either there was a mistake in 1800 or our subjects had a lot of children in their home who were not theirs.  List was roughly alphabetized.

The three teen-age males were missing from the 1800 census; and, for that reason, I'd normally just consider them "hired help" or "other kin," not sons, but the unlikelihood that they had just girls as their first five children and the assertion of a child, Abe, born in 1793, makes me think it is the 1800 census that is in error.  That is, that the lack of males in 1800 is a mistake on the part of the census-taker.  For now, I'm going to consider them as sons.  This may be incorrect.

1 female 26-44 1775-1794 = Catherine (b. 1769)
*In the 1820 Census, the third column is age class 16-18 and the fourth column is age class 16-25; therefore, any individual in column three is duplicated in column four.  By subtracting the number in column three from the number in column four, you can create an age class "19-25."
Catherine is fibbing about her age.

GEORGE P. STRAUB was a son of Peter STRAUB, Sr. George was born in what is now Washington Twp., Snyder Co., Pa., on June 13, 1769, and died in the same section on September 9, 1853. His wife, Catherine _____, was born on June 25, 1769, and died on December 4, 1837. Both are interred in the St. Peter's Cemetery in Freeburg.
On what basis did Fisher attach George to these parents?  Was he correct in doing so?
