Some sources have Zacchaeus Swain STROUBE (b. 10 Jan 1822, OH) as our subject's son, but he was the son of Jacob's brother, John STRAUBE, who lived in Campbell Co., KY (as did Zacchaeus).  Note that Zacchaeus was born in Ohio and that is was John who was in the 1820 census of Clermont Co., OH.  Our subject was continuously resident in Bracken Co., KY.

*In the 1820 Census, the third column is age class 16-18 and the fourth column is age class 16-25; therefore, any individual in column three is duplicated in column four.  By subtracting the number in column three from the number in column four, you can create an age class "19-25."

4.  1830 Census Index and Digital Images (online at Ancestry.com; Image #23-24 of 24 indexed "Strawbee"; extracted by Diana Gale Matthiesen):¤

Where's Phoebe?  The two additional males born 1815-20 were not with our subjects in 1820, so must not be sons.  I suspect the ages we have for most of the children are not accurate, and I don't know where most of them came from.

It looks as though the data for the males in the household have undergone a "frame shift" (i.e., they should all be in one higher age class).
These data indicate:
No. & Sex Age Class Therefore Born Individuals Inferred
1 male 5-9 1830-1835

Looks like a bit of age inflation, but Mary's son, Augustus in known to have come to Charleston, so this is surely his mother.
