Comment:  some secondary sources have asserted this family (and its children's families) "lived in Parryville."  They were farmers.  They lived in the countryside, not in town.  Parryville is the town to which they traveled to pick up their mail (see 1860 and 1870 census records, below).  They did not live in Parryville.  Parryville is in the southwestern corner of Franklin Twp., so for Parryville to have been the nearest town with a post office, our subjects must have been living in the northwestern corner of Lower Towamensing Twp.

The elder woman is Mary's mother, and the female in her 20's is almost certainly Mary's sibling either that or hired help, and with nine males to care for, plus two female toddlers, Mary and Susan needed the help!

10.  John W. Jordan, Edgar Moore Green, & George T. Ettinger, eds.  1905.  Historic Homes and Institutions and Genealogical and Personal Memoirs of the Lehigh Valley, Pennsylvania.  Lewis Publ. Co., New York (excerpts online at Karen Smith Furst's web site):
DAVID H. STRAUB, who is now living retired in Lehighton, but who for many years was industriously and successfully identified with agricultural pursuits in Carbon county, belongs to of the early families of the Lehigh Valley, of Than origin.

His grandfather, Theodore [Theobald] Straub, was born in what is known as Dry Land, a little hamlet located between Easton and Bethlehem.  He was an extensive distiller, and a man of considerable force of character and local influence in his day, being widely known as an industrious, upright and worthy citizen.  His family numbered five sons:  Emanuel, Daniel, John, David and Thomas, and three daughters.

David Straub, the father of D.H. [David Harrison] Straub, was born at Dry Land, and in his youth became familiar with the duties and labors that fall to the lot of the agriculturist.  After attaining man's estate he continued to follow the pursuit to which he had been reared, and owned and cultivated one hundred and thirty-six acres of valuable land.  During his active life he amassed considerable property both in real estate and personality.  In all of his business relations with his fellow men he was honorable and trustworthy, and commanded the respect and good will of all with whom he became associated, either in business or social relations. He married Polly Oldwine, and they became the parents of eleven children: Charles, Thomas, Daniel, Levi, John, David H., Mary, Harriet, Josiah, Emeline and Amelia, but David H. and the daughters are the only members of that once numerous household now living.

David H. Straub was born in Towamensing township, Carbon county, Pennsylvania, July 20, 1833...

.  Query at the Carbon County, Pennsylvania, web site (online at RootsWeb.com), specifically one by Sue Bosevich, who gives our subjects' marriage date as 3 Dec 1822 in Towamensing Twp. and suggests Maria OLEWINE's parents may have been George & Suzanna OLENWEIN.
