Children with Elisabeth PFEIL or Ann:
born in Milton, Northumberland Co., PA:
1.  Henry P. [PFEIL?] STRAUB, b. 18 Feb 1823 more likely 1822
2.  Isaac STRAUB, Jr., b. 10 Oct 1823
3.  Mary Caroline STRAUB, b. 1824/5, PA 
4.  (Daughter A) STRAUB, b.  1825-30
5.  (Daughter B) STRAUB, b. 1830-35
6.  (Daughter C) STRAUB, b. 1830-35 

Henry's and Isaac's birthyears can't both be 1823 (the dates are less than 9 months apart).  The 1850 and 1860 censuses indicate Henry was born in 1822, which would make sense.

Children with Ann:
born in Milton, Northumberland Co., PA:
  7.  Walter Ferry STRAUB, b. 13 Feb 1834 

born in Lewistown, Mifflin Co., PA:
  8.  Frances C. STRAUB, b. 1836

  9.  (Son C) STRAUB, b. 1835-40

born in Cincinnati, Hamilton Co., OH:
10.  Elizabeth STRAUB, b. 1838
11.  Ann / Annie STRAUB, b. 22 Mar 1841; d. 13 Dec 1843
12.  Emma STRAUB, b. 1844
13.  Milton STRAUB, b. 24 Aug 1846; d. 19 Jun 1849, Cincinnati, Hamilton Co., OH
14.  George M. STRAUB, b. 1847/8; living in 1880; unmarried as of 1880

The two sons have been tallied in the wrong age class; they were born 1820-1825.  Isaac is old enough to be the father of the two older girls from a prior marriage, but Isaac was not head-of-household in the 1820 census, so I doubt they are his daughters.  Isaac was afluent, so he certainly could have afforded hired help for his wife.

The sons are in the wrong age classes, yet I don't doubt these are our subjects.

TURBUT TOWNSHIP...
MILLS. . .

In 1840 Abraham and Isaac Straub removed their extensive grain and lumber mills from the island opposite Milton to the mouth of Muddy run. They were the inventors of a reaction water-wheel, the first in the United States, and their operations were quite extensive. Their water power was derived from the river, dams having been constructed on both sides of the island; but the erection of the Lewisburg dam interfered with these arrangements, and hence the selection of a new location at the mouth of Muddy run.  Chamberlain & Bisel, Yager & Bisel, John Ott, and W.B. Kemerer successively continued the business; on the 28th of March, 1874, the mill was burned, involving a loss of twenty thousand dollars. It was immediately replaced by the present building, a substantial frame structure.

11.  Information found by Frank Stroup at the Pennsylvania Historical Society in two folders of unpublished notes entitled Helen Gearhart Collection.  These notes were entirely undocumented, so caveat emptor; yet to the degree that these notes are correct, they contain much valuable information, so are worth consulting.  See Archives of the STRAUB-L mailing list (online at RootsWeb.com; and search on "Gearhart").

Co., Cincinnati, OH (online at the Making of America web site).   On p. 40 is a biographical sketch of our subjects' son, Judge Walter Ferry STRAUB.  It states, among other things, that in 1876, Isaac and Anne were living in Kentucky, just over the state line from Cincinnati, OH (which would be in Kenton Co.).

It seems like Walter Ferry STRAUB was on a mission to bring his kin into his own cemetery lot. 
(Note: Isaac Jr. is mis-indexed; you can pick him up searching on the Section and Lot numbers.)
