7.  George O. Jones, Norman S. McVean, et al.  1924. History of Lincoln, Oneida, and Vilas Counties, Wisconsin.  H.C. Cooper, Jr. & Co., Mineapolis-Winona, MN, pp. 418-419 (online at the Vilas County WIGenWeb site; submitted by Susan Swanson):
Straub, Maurice B. chief of police of the city of Rhinelander, Wis., was born in Ostrander, Waupaca County, Wis., May 17, 1875, son of Benjamin and Mary (O'BRIEN) STRAUB.  The father, a native of Germany, came to America in the early 50's, settling in Jefferson, Wis., and later in Ostrander, Waupaca County, where he was employed in the Jefferson-Ostrander sawmill, becoming head sawyer.  Later he became a stockholder in and superintendent of the mill, continuing as such until his death in 1911.  His wife Mary, to whom he was married at Northport, Waupaca County, is now living at Green Bay, Wis.  Their family numbered ten children: Anna, who married a Mr. MCNEAL and lives in Milwaukee; Margaret, who died at the age of 14 years; Enos, of Green Bay; Ada, now Mrs. George CLANCEY of De Pere, Wis.; Maurice B., subject of his sketch; John, of Superior, Wis.; Arthur, a farmer on the old homestead in Waupaca County; Frank, manager of the telephone company at Lone Rock, Wis.; Leonard, who was killed at Green Bay; and Irene, who married a Mr. SEIDL of Fond du Lac, where she now resides.

Maurice B. STRAUB as a boy attended district school in Waupaca County.  He then worked for awhile as substitute mail carrier, and was afterwards employed in the furniture factory in Ostrander, where he remained five years, working in every department.  In 1892 he entered the employ of Hatten & Micklejons, operating under the name of the Little Wolf Lumber Co., and took part in drives on the Little Wolf River.  After that he spent a year in the woods at Three Lakes for Thompson & LaFever.  He then returned to Waupaca County, and after remaining there awhile, went to Tomahawk Lake, in which vicinity he worked five years for the Lake Shore Lumber Co.  In 1899 Mr. STRAUB came to Rhinelander and for four years thereafter was in the employ of the Robbins Lumber Co.  Then in 1903 he was appointed chief of police by Mayor E. STAPELTON, in which capacity he has served up to the present time, having four men under him. 

He is a member of St. Mary's Catholic Congregation, and belongs also to the Ancient Order of Hibernians, the Catholic Foresters, the Maccabees and the Eagles.  Chief STRAUB was married in Rhinelander, Oct. 17, 1895, to Hattie SIMONS, daughter of Oliver and Mary SIMONS.  Her mother died and the father remarried and now resides in Seattle, Wash.  On Aug. 17, 1899, the STRAUB home circle was enlarged by the birth of a son, Bernard W., who is now a freight clerk in the employ of the Chicago & Northwestern Railway in Rhinelander. 

It was Maurice's grandfather, Joseph STRAUB, who was the immigrant, not his father, Benjamin.  Joseph immigrated to New York in the 1830s, where Benjamin was born.  Maurice's mother was a widow in the 1900 census, so the 1911 death date for Benjamin seems unlikely to impossible.  Ada's husband is Joseph CLANCEY, not George.  Our subjects' Oneida County marriage record gives a date of 17 Nov 1896, not 17 Oct 1895.  The census shows son, Bernard, born in Aug 1898, not 1899.
