Jesse H. STRAUB
Amanda __?__
Husband:  Jesse H. STRAUB is he Joshua STRAUB?
Birth:  1836/7, PA presumably in Upper Macungie Twp., Lehigh Co., PA
Death:  1880-1900 presumably in Upper Macungie Twp., Lehigh Co., PA
Occupation:  coal and grain merchant
Father may beJoshua STRAUB
Mother may beMary YERGER

I cannot find Jesse as a child in any household in the 1850 census.  The person I do find in 1850 in Upper Macungie Twp., Lehigh Co., PA is Joshua STRAUB, who is "living out" because his mother is dead and the family has split up (the father and children are all living separately).  I do not find "Joshua" after 1850, but "Jesse" appears, instead.  Whether Joshua's name was wrong in 1850 or whether he changed it later there's no way to tell and if you think an enumerator couldn't make such an error, consider that the senior Joshua was enumerated as "Josephine" in the 1870 census.  Turning Joshua into Jesse is a stretch, but appears to be the case, in part because there simply is no other STRAUB family in Upper Macungie Twp. to have been his parents.  Needless to say, more documentation is needed to prove the connection.  Note that both Joshua and Jesse are rare names for STRAUBs (and for Germans, in general).
