9.  Anon.  1885.  History of De Kalb County, Indiana...  Inter-State Publ. Co., Chicago, IL (excerpts online at the De Kalb County INGenWeb site).  On pp. 503-504:
Joseph Straub is of German Ancestry.  He came from Marion County, Ohio, in 1835, with his wife and three children and settled in Butler Township, De Kalb Co., Ind., where he bought a half section of land from the Government, of which he cleared about forty acres.  In 1842 he sold his land and removed to Carroll County, where he farmed five years, and in 1847 returned to this county, where he bought a quarter section, and here he resided till his death, which occurred Dec. 25, 1860, on his fifty-ninth birthday.  His wife survived till June, 1881, when she died at the home of her daughter, Mrs. L.S. Bassett, which adjoins the old homestead.  Eight children were born to them --- Henry, farming in Dakota; Susan (deceased); Simon Peter, who lives on the homestead farm; Jacob, a Universalist minister; Margaret Ann, Maria, Barbara Elizabeth, wife of L.S. Bassett of Butler Township, and Solomon W., residing at Woodlawn Park, near Chicago.  Rev. Jacob Straub entered the ministry in 1860 and has become a prominent minister of the Universalist denomination.  He has preached at Dowagiac, Mich., five years; Lansing, Mich., seven years; Muskegon, Mich., four years.  He then engaged in literary pursuits for two years, living in Chicago and preaching irregularly, and for the past seven years he has been pastor at Marseilles, Ill.  He is the author of “Consolations of Science,” which has received favorable notice from scientific and religious thinkers in Europe and America.  He intends to devote his future years to literary pursuits.  Mary Ann Straub has been in the Universalist ministry five years, filling the pulpit at Castalia, Iowa, for three years.  She now resides in Woodlawn Park, Ill.  She has composed many Sunday-school hymns and has also written an unpublished work for women.

Maria Straub also resides at Woodlawn Park.  She has a volume of poems almost ready for publication and has also written much sacred music.  She is the regular correspondent of the ”Religious Telescope,” Dayton, Ohio.  Prof. S.W. Straub has made music, vocal and instrumental, his life’s work.  He has conducted musical conventions for many years and has published a dozen or more musical books, including several Sunday-school books which are extensively used.  Those best known are “Morning Light" and “Living Fountain,” for Sabbath-schools.  He has also published “Convention, Choir and Anthem Treasures” for choir purposes and also some sheet music.  He founded “Song Friend,” a musical periodical now in the sixth volume, which he still conducts in connection with general music publishing in Chicago.  His son, Arthur M., is a pianist of promise.  He is now teaching and studying music. Henry Straub, his eldest son, has been Justice of the Peace for many years.

Margaret Ann is Mary Ann, at least according to the 1850/60/70 censuses and according to the second mention in this same bio.
