1840 PA Union [now Snyder] Co. Washington Twp. p. 267A Ln. 26 Straub Samuel 100 101 - 100 010
These data indicate:
No. & Sex Age Class Therefore Born Individuals Inferred
1 male 4 or under 1835-1840 = Philip (b. 1835/6)
1 male 15-19 1820-1825 = ?
1 male 30-39 1800-1810 = Samuel (b. 1812) 
1 female 4 or under 1835-1840 = Mary (b. 1837)
1 female 20-29 1810-1820 = Mary (b. 1816)
Samuel is in the wrong age class, but surely these are our subjects. The teenage boy is too old to be their child.

Marie is obviously Philip's wife and Emma their daughter, but I don't know who Mary HOUSEWORTH is.

Straub, infant son of Samuel and Maria      
How sad they lost three children in just one month.  Samuel's brother, Benjamin STRAUB, lost five children in Aug-Sep, 1852.  Aug-Sep is the height of the hot, humid weather.  I wonder what disease hits the children at that time of year?
