George WERTMAN
Leah STROUP
Husband:  George4 WERTMAN
Birth:  1800, PA
Death/Burial:  2 Jun 1858
Disposition:  buried Pine Street Lutheran Church, Danville, Montour Co., PA
Occupation:  laborer
Father:  John3 WERTMAN [Michael2, George Philip1]
Marriage:
Wife:  Leah STROUP
Birth (according to 1850 census):  1804/5, PA
Birth (according to tombstone):  5 Jan 1808
Death:  31 Jul 1878, Danville, Mahoning Twp., Montour Co., PA
Disposition:  buried Trinity Lutheran Church, Danville, Mahoning Twp., Montour Co., PA

There are only two families in Montour County with the possibility of being Leah's parents (both have unaccounted-for daughters Leah's age).  Based on proximity and other factors, these are the most likely parents for Leah:
Father possiblyJoseph STRAUB
Mother possiblyBarbara __?__

The other potential couple is:  (Johann) Adam STRAUB & (Maria) Catharina HEILMAN

(Leah appears to have shaved a few years off her age along the way, so her tombstone gives a later birthyear than was probably true.)

Listed next to John WERTMAN (æ 33, b. PA, wife Mary).  I've no explanation why Emmanuel was listed last.  Ususally that means the person is not a son of the householders, but there is a male Emmanuel's age in the household in the 1820 and 1830 censuses, and he is said to be their son.
