Spouse: Malinda SWINEFORD
Birth: Before 1828
Father: George SWINEFORD; Mother: Susan FREED

More like 1839, but if it was 1849, then the first wife was the mother of William and possibly Rosa.

2.  1840 Census Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com):  our subject is said to be from Washington Twp., Union [now Snyder] Co., PA, and there is a Henry STRAUB (æ 30-40) in that location in the 1840 census.  Melinda's alleged father, George SWINEFORD, is also in Union [now Snyder] Co.  There is also a Henry STRAUB (æ 20-30) in the 1840 census of Chapman Twp., Union [now Snyder] Co., PA, but he appears to have too many children to be our subject.  I don't know the identity of the parents of the Henry STRAUB in Washington Twp., but the parents of the one in Chapman Twp. are most likely Johann Heinrich STRAUB & Barbara __?__.
