This may or may not be our subject.  Although John's age is "off" (he should be 19), he is the only other STRAUB in Spring Twp. besides his father, John (George) STRAUB (Sr.).  In 1860, both John STRAUBs are listed next to each other as George STROUP, Sr. and Jr. (see below).  As John STRAUB was certainly not the informant for this 1850 census record, we can expect that the informant, probably William RIDDLE's wife or even one of his children, was guessing at John's age or John may even have inflated his age to get a job.

Where is Lydia?  She was born in 1859 and should be here.  Is this census-taker error?  Or was Lydia later adopted?  William KEAN is probably hired help, but could be kin.  Listed next to George's parents, (John) George & Lydia (HEIM) STROUP.
