Valentine STRAUB
Walburg GRATHWOHL
Husband:  Valentine STRAUB
Birth:  Feb 1832, Wuerttemberg or Ohio
Death:  1 May 1917, Hamilton, Butler Co., OH
Occupation:  farmer
Father:  Thaddaeus STRAUB
Mother:  Prisca/Brisca RIESTER

As it stands, Valentine's birthplace is somewhat uncertain.  In the 1860 census, it shows Wuerttemberg, but in the 1850, 1870, 1880, and 1900 censuses it shows Ohio.  I would presume the 1860 census was the one in error, except that his brother Jacob's bio says the family came to America in 1836 which, if true, means Valentine had to have been born in Europe.  As Valentine would have been only four years old in 1836, he would understandably have had no memories of Germany, and it's common for people who were moved as toddlers to mistakenly believe the place where they grew up is where they were born.
