2.  Anon.  1892.  Memorial and Biogrphical History of the Counties of Fresno, Tulre, and Kern, California.  Lewis Publ., Chicago.
p. 610 S.N. STRAUBE, a prominent business man of Fresno, was born in Montgomery County, Missouri, in 1854. At the age of eighteen years he emigrated to California and first located at Knight's Ferry, Stanislaus County, there being employed in a flour-mill and subsequently engaging in the stock business, his principal interest in this line being in sheep, though to some extent engaged in cattle raising also.

Since December 1, 1875, he has been a resident of Fresno County, and at present is living in Fresno, where he is extensively engaged in real estate transactions. It is to the breeding ranch, however, that Mr. Straube has devoted much time, money and attention; and as proprietor of the celebrated Poplar Grove Breeding Farm, he is known far and wide.

This property is located sixteen miles south of Fresno, and consists of 160 acres of choice, rich land of a sandy loam; is supplied with an abundance of running water, and is excellently adapted to the growth of all varieties of grasses.  Rows of graceful poplars, from which the farm takes its name, line the avenues through the place.  The splendid appointments about the farm indicate to the practiced eye that this is the home of the natural-born trotters.  The feed here being so nutritious and the climate so well adapted to the early and healthy development of fine horses, it would indeed be difficult to find a more desirable situation for a farm of like character.  This is regarded as one of the best stock ranches in the San Joaquin valley, and the fame of its stallions is known throughout the country.  The buildings are substantial and in every way adapted to the purpose intended. At the rear of these is an excellent three-quarter mile track, which is used for exercising the horses. Mr. Straube enters and trots more horses of his own raising at California meetings than any other breeder in the San Joaquin valley, and in the progress of breeding and developing the trotter he has kept pace.

The residence of this farm is particularly attractive, and is one of the most delightful retreats to be found in this beautiful valley.

Mr. Straube was married in August, 1882, to Miss Laura MacGee, of Jacksonville, Illinois.  Three children have been born to them, all of whom are now deceased.
