I can't account for Joseph's birthplace being given as "Bavaria," except that the prior household on the page is from Bavaria and the enumerator must have gotten confused.

10.  Anon.  1882.  A History and Biographical Cyclopaedia of Butler County Ohio.  Western Biographical Publ. Co., Cincinnati, OH (online at the Butler County OHGenWeb site):
Joseph STRAUB was born in the kingdom of Wirtemberg, Germany, in 1828, and came here with his father in 1836.  His parents were Thaddeus and Brisca STRAUB both now dead.  His occupation is that of a dealer in coal and wood. He was married in Hamilton, in the year 1858, to Rebecca Ann RILEY, daughter of Henry and Mary RILEY, who came here in 1820.  Mrs. STRAUB¹s grandfather, James RILEY, was in the Revolutionary War, and his oldest son, Joshua RILEY, was at HULL¹s surrender in 1812. James RILEY lost a thumb during one of the engagements in our war of independence.  Two of her brothers were in the war of 1861, both having died since its conclusion.  Mr and Mrs. STRAUB have eight children:  Mary B. was born June 19, 1859; Sarah S., October 12, 1861; Adeline, February 4, 1862; Felix Joseph, January 4, 1865; George Riley, February 8, 1867; Thaddeus, January 16, 1870; Anna Jane, February 24, 1872; and Cleophas, December 2, 1874. Anna Jane is dead. 
Henry C. Riley, son of James Riley and Nancy Yercus, was born in Jefferson County, Virginia, October 10, 1802.  His parents came to this county in 1809, and he in 1833.  He was married December 27, 1827, in Ross Township, to Mary Timberman, daughter of George Timberman, and Anna Stephenson.  She was born in Tennessee, October 11, 1812, and after being a faithful wife for forty-five years, died September 25, 1872.  She bore him fourteen children, Nancy, William, George W., James M., Mary Jane, Thomas Jefferson, Rebecca Ann, David T., Eliza E., Sarah C., Annie T., Susan L., Martha C., and Margaret A.  Rebecca Ann married Joseph Straub, Sarah C. married Samuel B. Garver, and David T. married Mary Morris.  He has living fourteen grandchildren and one great-grandchild.  He has always been a farmer, and has several times been supervisor. His brother Joshua was in the War of 1812. 
Does the phrase "came here... in 1836" mean they came to Butler County in 1836 or that they came to Ohio in 1836 or that they came to America in 1836?  It's too bad the sentence is ambigous because the birthplaces of the children suggest they may have been in Ohio earlier than 1836.

11.  Butler County Atlas (online at the WWW Virtual Library; transcribed by Karen Hutten).  There were several Butler County atlases published over the years, so I've emailed Karen Hutten to ask her from which atlas she extracted this information.  I presume this entry refers to our subjects' son.
