Allen Straup

ALLEN E. STRAUP, one of the progressive young business men of Easton, proprietor of a grocery store on the south side, is descended from one of the old families of the Lehigh Valley.  His paternal great-grandfather was a native of Northampton county, Pennsylvania, where he spent his entire life and reared his family.  His son, Thomas Straup, was also there and continued to make it his home.  In early life he learned the blacksmith's trade and became a good mechanic, but afterward took up the study of medicine and engaged in its practice.  He was a man of worth and ability, and a most patriotic and loyal citizen.  On attaining man's estate he married Matilda Seigfried, also a native of Northampton county, and to them were born fourteen children, thirteen of whom grew to maturity, and six of the number are still living.  The family have long been earnest members of the Evangelical church, in which the grandfather of our subject held several offices.  His wife is still living and resides in Northampton county.
