"Buyer" appears to be this enumerator's version of "Bayern," the German name of Bavaria I guess anyone who can spell son, s-o-n-e, wouldn't find it odd to spell Bayern, B-u-y-e-r.  The interesting part is "For.," which almost certainly stands for "Forchheim," a major city in Bavaria (20 mi north of  Nürnberg/Nuremberg).  Elizabeth has shaved a few years off her age.

6.  1890 Census:  the 1890 census population schedules were destroyed.

7.  1900 Census Index/Microfilm (online at Genealogy.com):  not found, at least not as anything remotely close to "Burkhardt."  I searched STRAUB, STRAUP, STROUB, and STROUP in PA.  There is no Elizabeth in Erie County.

8.  Messages in the Straub Family Genealogy Forum (online at GenForum.com).

9.  Archives of the PAERIE-L Mailing List (online at RootsWeb.com/Ancestry).  A message there says Paulina STOCK married Ferdinand STRAUB.
