This record is hard to figure.  Did the enumerator simply screw up and put Kate first (along with a big fib about her age)?  Or is pattern-maker Jacob STRAUB, widower, living with dressmaker Kate STROUD, and the enumerator didn't "get" that Jacob's surname was STRAUB, not STROUD.  "Kate" is a nickname for Catharine, so her given name doesn't actually help us here.

This page was extremely faded and difficult to read, on top of which, the imbeciles at NARA have scribbled over the given names.  The image at Genealogy.com was more legible.
