1.  George W. Wagenseller.  1899.  Snyder County Marriages, 1835-1899.  Wagenseller Publ., Middleburgh, PA (available as facsimile reprint from HigginsonBooks.com):
p. 169 Rev. J. P. Shindel's Marriage Records.
A List of the Couples Joined by Rev. J. P. Shindel, Jr., 1835-88...
p. 172 1842...
p. 173 Nov. 17, William F. Stroub and Albertina Mageritz, both of Black Oak Ridge.
In the entire book, there is not one STRAUB!  It appears Wagenseller has arbitrarily turned all STRAUBs and STROUPs into STROUBs.  But STRAUB is the true/original surname while STROUP is by far the most common Anglicized spelling.  The rarest spelling variation, by far, is STROUB!

2.  1850 Census Every-Name-Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com):  can't find, and I did a page-by-page check of Centre County and Beaver Twp., Union [now Snyder] County, where I did find a MARGARITZ/MARGERITZ family with a daughter (æ 14) named Albertina, who is almost certainly kin of our Albertina.
