Might she be our subject?  It would mean her birth year on her tombstone is off by two years, but that's hardly inexplicable.

2.  1840 Census Index and Digital Images (online at Ancestry.com; Image #6 of 7; extracted by Diana Gale Matthiesen):
1840 Florida Territory pp. 195B-196A Ln. 21 Nicklas Sttoup 010 041 - 000 010 100 no slaves
These data indicate:
No. & Sex Age Class Therefore Born Individuals Inferred
0 male 4 or under 1835-1840 = Augustus (b. 1839)
1 male 5-9 1830-1835
4 males 20-29 1810-1820 = (hired help?)
1 male 30-39 1800-1810 = Nicholas (b. 1810)
1 female 20-29 1810-1820 = Dorothy (b. 1816)
1 female 40-49 1790-1800 = mother? mother-in-law?
Augustus is in the wrong age class and Sttoup is not Stroup, so is this really our subject?

9.  William E. Connelley.  1918.  A Standard History of Kansas and Kansans.  Vol. V.  Lewis Publ. Co., Chicago. Biographical sketch of our subjects' grandson, Charles A. STRAUB.  Excerpt:
p. 2429 Charles A. Straub... was born at Sheldon, Wyoming County, New York, March 29, 1863.  His father, A.B. Straub, was born in 1838 and by the accident of birth is a native of Florida.  The grandfather [Nicholas] , who was born in 1810, in Germany, emigrated to America and landed at one of the ports of Florida, and soon afterwards his oldest child, A.B., was born.  The family soon came North and located in the Town of
p. 2430 Sheldon, New York, where Grandfather Straub built and for many years was proprietor of the Sheldon Hotel.  He died there in 1893...

10.  St. Cecilia's Catholic Church Cemetery, Sheldon, Wyoming Co., NY (courtesy of Scott Barvian):
Nicholas Straub died 1888, not 1893 (which I realize comes from a published article).

[This image] shows his gravestone at St. Cecilia's Cem. in Sheldon - dates not readable in the photo unfortunately...

Slide351 is Nicholas' son Eli 1857-1938, wife Mary 1858-1907.

The four stones behind Nicholas' monument are:

428 - Nicholas' son John, d. 1872 age 19
429 - Marie Margaretha, w/o A. Bernard, d. 1870 age 68
430 - A. Bernard, d. 1888 age 79
431 - Nicholas' son Frank, d. 1873 age 31

Some other children of Nicholas are
194 - Maria Straub Grimm, d. 1871 age 25
502 - Lucy/"Luisi" Straub, d. 1855 age 7.  This is probably the only pre-1860 stone in the entire cemetery to still be upright, much less in good condition and mostly readable.
