10.  Email and GEDCOM from descendant, Sue Steward, including this obituary:
Obituary:  Albany Democrat Herald, Thursday,February 3, 1944 (frontpage)

Phares Straub Dies at Halsey Wednesday

Phares Straub, 85, of Halsey, died at the family home there at 1:15 P.M. Wednesday, Feb. 2.

Funeral services are to be held from the Presbyterian Church of Brownsville, at 2 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 6, with Rev. R. E. Clark officiating.  Interment will be in the Brownsville Cemetery in charge of the Fisher Funeral home.

Mr. Straub was born Sept. 13, 1858, at Freeburg, Penn., and had been a resident of Oregon for the last 35 years, of which 12 years have been spent in the Halsey neighborhood where he was engaged in farming.  He was married March 4, 1884 to Miss Maggie Hoffer, who survies him, as do three children:  Virginia Butts of Salem; Harry Edwin Straub, of Portland and Samuel H. Straub of Seattle; and nine grandchildren; and a brother, Edward Straub of Kansas.

Ms. Steward mentions in her GEDCOM that the Family Bible gives Mary's name as "Virgin Mary," not Virginia, and this agrees with her name in the censuses, although it's understandable why she might have opted to go by "Virginia," instead.  Edward STRAUB is actually Pharus's half-brother.
