Ironically, given that George was the enumerator, his name actually does look more like "Strant," than Straub.

George must have moved back to Ohio after the 1920 census because his death certificate shows he died in his home town of Waldo, OH.

Name Death Date Age Place of Death Place of Birth Cause
STROUB, Walter E. 03/07/79 9Y 3M 27D Prospect Tp Waldo Enlarged Heart
The death of Walter in Prospect explains something I had never understood:  why Bert Straub, Walter's younger brother, was born in Prospect when all of Bert's siblings were born in Waldo.  Having found this death record, I now see that Bert was born the day Walter died.  For whatever reason, Sarah and Walter plus possibly George and other members of the family were obviously in Prospect the day Walter died, and that is the day Bert, my grandfather, was born.  Did the shock of Walter's death trigger Sarah's labor?  It would seem so.

Mrs. Straub, of Waldo, who has been in the county jail for the past two weeks on account of insanity, is no better, and will be taken to the Asylum at Columbus tomorrow.  Mrs. Straub is about 36, and has been married some fifteen years; has a husband and four children; is a daughter of ex Sheriff E.K. Corbin.
