John STRAUB, Jr.
Nancy BACHMAN
Husband:  John STRAUB, Jr.
Birth (sources differ on date):  21 or 23 Mar 1821 or 3 Dec 1821, Middle Creek Twp., Union [now Snyder] Co., PA
Death:  9 Sep 1905
Disposition:  buried Mound Cemetery, Ottawa Twp., Le Sueur Co., MN

Occupation:  homemaker

Was her middle name, "Martha"?  Or was her name in the 1870 census enumerator error?  If not, then John had remarried to someone named Martha between 1860 and 1870 and, if so, has Nancy's tombstone been mis-read?

Nancy's age may have been wrong in 1850, but more likely she has shaved three years off her age here and continued to do so for the rest of her life, hence her birthyear on her tombstone, as well as in post-1850 censuses, is probably incorrect.  Elisabeth (STEELEY) STRAUB BAY is John's mother; Daniel is John's brother.
