Joshua STRAUB
Maria YERGER
Husband:  Joshua / Josua STRAUB
Birth:  ca. 1803/4, PA
Occupation:  laborer, miner
Father:  Johann Daniel STRAUB, Jr.
Mother:  Catharina SITTLER
Marriage:  5 Dec 1824, Lutheran Church, New Hanover, Montgomery Co., PA
Wife:  Maria YERGER
Birth:  1800-1810
Death:  1840-50
Occupation:  homemaker
Children:
born in either Montgomery Co., PA, or Upper Macungie Twp., Lehigh Co., PA:
1.  (Daughter A) STRAUB, b. 1825
2.  (Daughter B) STRAUB, b. 1825-30
3.  Elizabeth STRAUB, b. 1829/30

born in Upper Macungie Twp., Lehigh Co., PA;
4.  Catharine STRAUB, b. 1831/2
5.  Joshua STRAUB, b. 1835 did Joshua become Jesse H. STRAUB

I have no direct proof that Catharine and Joshua (a.k.a., Jesse?) are children of this couple, but Catharine and Joshua appear as orphans in the 1850 census of Upper Macungie Township, and there is no other STRAUB couple in Upper Macungie Township who could have been their parents.  Also, we have no other STRAUB children in the 1850 census to account for Joshua STRAUB's children in the 1840 census.
