Straub Jacob Schroem Catharine 17 Jan 1857 Book 3, p. 99
There doesn't appear to be any such surname as SCHROEM, but there is a surname SCHRUM (which gets Anglicized to SHRUM), so the spelling in the 1850 census appears to be closer to the mark.

2.  1850 Census Every-Name-Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com; Image #368 of 415):  City of Wheeling (Ward 5), 44th District, Ohio Co., VA [now WV], Roll M432_966, p. 190B, 2738/2815, enumerated 2 Nov 1850, official enumeration date 1 Jun 1850 (extracted by Diana Gale Matthiesen):

Either Catherine's age is wrong here or it's wrong in the rest of her census records; either is plausible.
