  General Notes:

(OCT 1859-NOV 1867)

"Robert B. Straw was an orphan according to his son, Charles. We can not find any evidence of this, or any Straw Family before him. Therefore, the history of the Straws begins with him." (In a letter from James R. Rea 03/08/04)

research for consideration:
(per Sue Phaneuf)In 1840, a John Straw was there with his wife, 3 sons [b. ~1825, 1830, 1835] and 2 dtrs.
Elijah Straw was in Green Camp, OH in 1850.
In 1860, there is a William Strew, 31, married to an Elvina [ Melvina Lefever], with children Hermen [9], John [6] and Mary [5].
There is also a Robert Strew, 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.
By 1870, William Strew is dead and Elvina is married to Aaron Markley [m. 9 Apr 1867]
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?

Robert married Sarah Jane Garrison, daughter of Charles Garrison and Susan Hoppwood, on 30 Apr 1860 in Marion County, Ohio. (Sarah Jane Garrison was born about 1844 in Ohio.)
