Ms. __?__
Mary Elizabeth LOWE
Husband:  Tobias [Albert and/or O.] STRAUB / STROUB / STROUP
Birth:  Jan 1858, Lykens Twp., Dauphin Co., PA

Our subject is said to have been baptized "Tobias Albert" (see parents' page), but he had middle initial "O" in the 1860, 1870, and 1900 censuses, and on his tombstone.  I have no explanation for the discrepancy, unless the baptismal record (or its transcription) is in error, or unless he had three given names, or unless someone thought "Albert" was spelled "Olbert."  (Note that the given name "Oscar" ran in the family.)

If Tobias & Mary have only been married 15 years, then Harry is not Mary's son.  This also jibes with Mary having only six children living, not seven.  Elnia STROUP is Tobias's stepmother, Elmiah (PAUL) STRAUB; Samuel J. is her son and, thus, Tobias's half-brother.  Listed next to Tobias's brother, George Brady STRAUB

The fact that Harry is listed last supports that he is not Mary's son, as does the fact that Mary has only six children living and that she an Tobias have been married only 25 years.

7.  Mary Klinger Erdman.  c1970s.  Zion (Klinger's) Lutheran Church, Lykens Twp., Dauphin Co., PA: Cemetery Inscriptions.  MS.  (online at the Dauphin County Genealogy Resource Center):
113. STRAUB - Father, Tobias O. Straub, 1858 - 1934
115. STRAUB - Mary E., wife of Tobias Straub; died June 18, 1918; aged 46 yrs., 11 mos. & 3 das.
123. STRAUB - Infant son of Tobias & Mary Starub (sic); died Dec. 25, 1887; aged 3 mos. & 8 das.
124. STRAUB - Infant dau. of Tobias & Mary Straub, (Remainder Illegible).

8.  Birthdate calculated using Ben Buckner's Birthdate Calculator.
Name Deathdate Age at Death Result
Mary E. Straub 18 Jun 1918 3d 11m 46y 15 Jul 1871
infant son 25 Dec 1887 8d 03m 00y 17 Sep 1887
(Calculated birthdates should always be prefaced with "ca." you can't be certain the person who calculated their age did it correctly.)
According to the 1900 census, Mary was born in 1866, so she was obviously fibbing about her age later in life.
