Without knowing the birthdates of these children, I cannot place them
in the above list.
In addition to Nicholas and Simon, these four STRAUSSER males show up
in Northumberland Co. in the 1820 Census, after the death of our subject.
Surely these are the four older sons born 1790-1800:
These two children (as given by secondary sources) cannot possibly be
our subjects' offspring because Catharina would have been 70 years old
in 1832, not to mention that Nicholas died ca. 1814!
