  General Notes:

MARION COUNTY, OHIO - MARRIAGES - VOLUME IV - FEB 1850 - MAY 1855
Straw, Catharine (and) Tunis, Joseph 7/10/1851 by: Alexander Porter
Straw, William (and) Lefever, Melvina 11/28/1850 By:Rev Alexander Porter
This suggests relationship between William and Catherine. Based on time frame and location I have assigned them as siblings.

research for consideration:

1860 Green Camp, Marion County, Ohio
William Straw, 31
Elvinia 1833
Hormel [9], John [6] and Mary [5].
There is also a Robert Straw, 22, married to Sarah Ann Garrison [16] with 3 year old Mary. Robert & Sarah married Apr 05, 1860, so I don't think that little Mary is their child. After this, this family disappears from the census.

1870 Green Camp, Marion County, Ohio
William Straw is dead (could this be him? Name:Straw, William Rank: Private Company:I Regiment: 174th O.V.I Date enlisted: September 1864 Died at Newbern, N.C., March 3, 1865)
Elvina is married [9 Apr 1867] to Aaron Markley but he is not listed with her in the census.

These men - William, Robert & Elijah fit in the age brackets for the children of John Straw of the 1840 census.
Perhaps Cintipha Jane Straw is one of John's dtrs? Catherine Straw Tunis c/b the other one?
