10.  Anon.  1911.  Genealogical & Biographical Annals of Northumberland County [Pennsylvania].  J.L. Floyd & Co., Chicago.
p. 448 WILLIAM H. STRAUB, now successfully engaged in the hardware business at Milton, Pa. is one of the progressive and enterprising citizens of Northumberland county.  He was born near Womelsdorf, Berks county, Jan. 18, 1860 son of Jacob Straub.

Jacob Straub, the father, was a native of Stuttgart, Germany, who came to America in 1850 settling in Reading, Pa.  In a short time he moved to Tulpehocken township, Berks county, and there followed his trade of tanner and currier.  In 1867 he went to Danville, and after twelve years came to Milton, Pa., where he was employed at tanning by Wm. Reber.  He died in 1900, and is buried at Milton.  He married Leah Ebling, a native of Berks county who died in 1902.  To this union were born two children. Pauline and William H. Anthony Straub, a brother of Jacob, also a native of Germany, came to America and settled at Reading, Pa.  Like his brother he gave his services to his adopted country during the Civil war, and he died at the National Soldiers Home, Dayton, Ohio.  Jacob Straub was a sergeant of company F, 167th Pa. Vol. Inf., from Nov. 12, 1862, until Aug. 12, 1863, under Capt. Josiah Groh, and Col. Charles A. Knoderer.

William H. Straub attended the public schools of Danville, spending three years in the high school.  He came with his parents to Milton, and here learned the painter's trade, which he followed for himself for a period of twenty years.  In July, 1904, he bought the hardware business located at No. 16  Broadway, from H. Judson Raup, one of the leading stores of the district.  He has developed the business on a broader scale, and has a fine patronage.

Mr. Straub married Mary Bower, daughter of Harrison Bower, of Selinsgrove, Pa., and they have one daughter, Leah, who graduated from the Milton high school, class of 1911.  Mr. Straub is a Republican in politics.  With his family he attends the Reformed Church.  Fraternally he belongs to Milton Lodge, No. 256, F. & A.M.; Lodge No. 84, I.O.O.F.; and Castle No. 265, K.G.E.

At the outbreak of the Spanish American war he was appointed captain of Co. C, Second Battalion, 12th Pennsylvania Volunteers.  After being out twenty-four hours he was commissioned major of the regiment.  They were stationed at Camp Alger, Virginia.  He is at present a major in the 12th Regt., N.G.P.
