Comment:  A "pink" is a kind of ship, so did they come on the pink, Plaisance?  Or did they come on the ship, Pink Plaisance?  I suspect the former.

I've taken these to be father and son, but they may not be.  On the same ship:  Ulrich STEHLE

*The asterisk indicates his name was entered by a clerk (i.e., it is not his signature, which presumably means he was illiterate). 

2.  Frank F. Bell.  1960.  BELL-SHARPE.  MS, Dallas, TX (online at HeritageQuest at Genealogy.com):  Excerpt containing mention of our subject, most pertinently: 
p. 151 Letters of Administration on the estate of William Stroop, dec'd., were granted, 4 January (?), 1756, to Bernard Stroop, his son, and Leonard Mel Chor, a son of the widow of the deceased, the widow having renounced.

(Ref:  Phila. Administration Book G., p. 42.)

The author had uniformly changed the varied spellings all to STROOP, so we don't know how the surname was spelled in the document, but probably not STROOP.  I don't understand the phraseology.  Wouldn't a son of the widow be a son of the testator? 

3.  The Palatine Project: 1732 Plaisance (online at the ProGenealogists web site).
[List 22 A, B, C] Plaisance (Pink)
Captain: John Parrett
From: Rotterdam
By Way of: Cowes
Arrival: Phildelphia, 21 Sep 1732
Name, Age Place of Origin Source Remarks (spelling variations, etc.)
Johann Wilhelm Straub, 44
John Barnats Strop
    Stope *For this Reformed schoolmaster and preacher, see Life of John Philip Boehm, p. 54.
The Souce here, though not given, was obviously Strassburger, but the important addition is the Remark.

4.  On 1 Apr 2006, a Google search turned up a GEDCOM posted to www.genealogyforum.com that mentions:  In August, 1743, John William STRAUB, paster of the Schmalzgass Reformed Congregation, did a baptism in Macungie Twp., Northampton [then Bucks, now Lehigh] Co., PA.

5.  Messages posted to the STRAUB Surname Board (online at Ancestry.com/RootsWeb.com), one of which includes mention of the next source.

7.  Global Gazetteer (by Falling Rain Genomics, Inc.):  There are eight Gronau's in Germany, one of which is in Land Rheinland-Pfalz [the state of Rhineland-Palatinate].  Nearest major city is Mannheim (about 10 miles to the west, across the Rhine River in Baden-Württemberg).  Other sites turned up on a Google search shows Gronau is in Kreis Ludwigshafen.
