Either John married twice, to two different Sarah's, or her age in one of the censuses is an error.

______ Sarah 31 F W Keeping house     Pa
______ Chas  2 M W       Pa
My first reaction is that Sarah is fibbing about her age in the 1880 census, but given that she has only one young child in 1870, I think it more likely that her age here is enumerator error, and that she's 21, not 31.  Listed two households from Jacob J. STRAUB.
