6.  Anon.  1896.  Commemorative Biographical Encyclopedia of Dauphin County, Pennsylvania.  J.M. Runk & Co., Chambersburg, PA (online at Ancestry.com):
p. 912 STRAUB, William.  Farmer and stockman, Berrysburg, Pa., was born in Schuylkill county, Pa., September 21, 1831; son of John and Christiana (Hime) Straub.

John Straub was also born in Schuylkill county, and was a son of John Straub, farmer and mill owner of that county, where he died.  John Straub, Jr., was also a farmer, and cultivated several rented farms in his native county, where he died in 1845.  His wife Christiana Hime, was born in Northumberland county.  Their children were:  Angeline, deceased, wife of Jere [Jeremiah] Matter, engineer; William; Elizabeth, deceased, wife of David Seal [SEALE]; Samuel, Lykens township, Dauphin county; Amos, farmer, Mifflin township; Sarah, died young; Mary, wife of John Wetmore [WITMER], Seven Points, Northumberland county.  Mr. Straub was a Democrat.  He was a member of the Lutheran church.  The second husband of Mrs. Straub, was Valentine Savage...

7.  Anon.  1898.  Commemorative Biographical Record of Central Pennsylvania, including the Counties of Centre, Clearfield, Jefferson and Clarion.  J.H. Beers & Co., Chicago.
p. 164 John Heim, the grandfather of Mrs. Hensyl, and a farmer and school teacher by occupation, died in 1824.  He was twice married, by the first union having one son and seven daughters, while by the second there were six sons and two daughters.  Sophia (Kohl), his second wife, lived to the advanced age of eighty-eight years.  Her children were as follows:  John, of Richfield, Juniata Co., Penn.; George, of Upper Mahonoy township, Northumberland county; Diana, wife of John Straub, of Lykenstown, Penn.; Mollie, wife of Peter Beisel, of Upper Mahanoy; Peter, of Watsontown, Northumberland county; William, the father of Mrs. Hensyl; Daniel, of Northumberland county; and Jonathan, a resident of Illinois.
Was her other given name really, "Diana," or has the author erred?  The name, Diana, comes from a goddess of Roman mythology, and it's unusual for Christians of this era to use such a given name.
