Mary MILLER
A descendant of our subject has been tested for the STRAUB Y-DNA Surname Project.  He has two unexpected matches.  Please see this page for additional discussion of the results.
Husband:  Christian STRAUBE / STRAWBE / STRAUBY / STRAWBERRY
Birth:  1789, PA
Death:  1867, Audrain Co., MO
Disposition:  buried Fike Cemetery, Audrain Co., MO
Occupation:  farmer
Father said to be:  William STROUBE
Mother:  Elizabeth __?__
Marriage:  2 Jul 1812, Brookville, Bracken Co., KY
Wife:  Mary "Polly" MILLER
Birth:  1 Mar 1791, VA or KY
Death:  18 Apr 1865, Audrain Co., MO
Disposition:  buried Fike Cemetery, Audrain Co., MO
Occupation:  homemaker
Father:  William MILLER
Mother:  Rebecca POWEL / POWELL
Children:
born in Bracken Co., KY:
1.  William H. STRAUBE / STRAWBE, b. 14 Apr 1813 

born in Springfield Twp., Franklin Co., IN:
2.  Eliza Ann STRAUBE, b. 12 Dec 1814
3.  Isabella / Isabelle STRAUBE, b. ca. 1815
4.  James E. STRAUBE, b. 8 Jan 1818
5.  George M. STRAUBE, b. 15 Oct 1823
6.  Rebecca STRAUBE, b. 1824/5
7.  Mary STRAUBE, b. 1827/8
8.  Christian STRAUBE, Jr., b. 1829/30; d. Mar 1850, Audrain Co., MO; bur. Fields-Fike Cem.

Isabella must be fibbing about her age in the 1850 census because she surely didn't marry Joseph FLOOD at age 14.  Mary's age in 1850 may be incorrect, too, because in the 1840 census, she was born 1820-25.

This is probably when and where the license was obtained.

This is probably the date and place of the wedding ceremony.

STRAWBERRY is an extremely rare variant of STRAUBE (which is pronouned in two syllables, not one).  In fact, the only other place I've seen STRAWBERRY used is by Christian's mother, when she remarried after the death of Christian's father.

Some of the children are tallied in the wrong age classes, but there can be no doubt these are our subjects.
