NOTICE:  A patrilineal descendant of our subject is participating in the STRAUB Y-chromosome DNA Surname Project.  Anyone who suspects they descend from our subject on a direct male line can now support that connection with a DNA test.  This descendant turns out to be a match for a patrilineal descendant of Michael STRAUB, of MD.  How they connect is unknown, but without doubt they do.
