Mathias Martin STRUBE / STRAUB
Mary __?__
Note:  Our subject appears in the records only as STRUBE or STRAUB, not STRAUBE; yet, his children go by STRAUBE.  If this weren't a German surname, I wouldn't be conflicted about it, but in German, the terminal "e" is pronounced.  STRAUBE is pronounced in two syllables, "straw-bee," while STRAUB is pronounced in one syllable, "strawb."  I have never seen one convert to the other because of the obvious difference in pronunciation.  So, was a silent "e" merely added later?  Or was he originally "stroo-bee"?
