I am searching for more information on the Strasbaugh (Strasbach)-family.
My husband's great-great-grandmother was Emma (or Emiline) J. Strasbaugh (1876-1961). Her parents were Jacob Strasbaugh (1840-1907) and Lovina Ruth (1840-1898). Jacob's parents were: Jacob Strasbaugh born 1809 and Mary Strasbaugh born 1810. His parents were Michael Strasbach (1765-1841) and Margaretta Brichner (1769-1839).
I have some information on siblings, but mostly no decendants.
Any help is appreciated! Martina Breeden
I just saw your query. I have the info you need. I'll begin with Michael and Margaretta (Margaretha). They have ten children: Catherine, Joannes Michael (which I'm desended from), Polly, Maria Magdalena, Georgius, Samuel, Henericus, Peter, JACOB, and Margaretha.
Michael's father is also named Michael. He was born in 1740 and died in
1796. He married Eva Catherine Staub (1744-1812). They have eleven children: John, MICHAEL, Catherine, Matlena (Magdalena), Peter, Elizabeth, Jacob, Henry, Adam, Mary, and Nicholas.
Next up the chain is Nicholas Strasbach. He and his wife Catherine Gerard arrived here on September 16, 1736 from Bas-Rhine, Saulxures, France. They married on Jan. 29, 1718. They came with six children and had four more after arriving. The children are: Anna Marguerite, Barbara, Mary Ann, Nicholas Jr., Margaret, John, Matlena (Lena), Judith, Catherine, and MICHAEL.
Hope that helps.
I am researching the Strausbaugh family from York Co., PA. I have gone back as far as Nicholas Abraham Strausbaugh married to Maria Kaltrider. His 2nd wife was Susan Mummert. They had 4 children together: Magdalena, Mandilla, Abraham, and Adam. Maria died shortly after Adam was born. I have that Nicholas's father was also named Adam Strausbaugh and his mother was Mary (Margaret) Fissel. Your message had alot of the same Given Names. I was wondering if Michael and Eva could be Adam's parents.
I have it from unproven sources that Adam Strausbaugh (Father of Nicholas Strausbaugh) was himself the son of Michael Strausbaugh and Eva Catharine Staub.
Michael Strausbaugh was the son of Nicholas Strausbuagh and Catherine ______.
Eva Catharine Staub was the daughter of John Adam Staub and Anna Catharine Bewertz. Anna Bewertz was the daughter of John.
All the families were Catholic and appear in the records of Conewago Chapel in Adams County PA and Goshenhoppen Mission in Reading, Berks Co, PA.
Leonard, Strausbaugh(Strassbach), Runk
I am looking for information on a Margaretha or Margaret Leonard Strassbach Runk. She should have been born around 1820. She was a member of the Sacred Heart of Mary Catholic Church outside of Abbottstown, but in Paradise Twp., York County. From what I have found she was born a Leonard and marrried a Strassbach first. Then she married Moses Runk. I would be interested to know her first husband's name, if they had any children, etc.

There is a slight error in the previous reply.
The parents of Michael Strasbaugh were Nicholas Strasbach born @1696 and Catherine Gerard the documentation follows for the French Salm records. Michael was born in Penna. circa 1740 to this Nicholas as recorded in Administrative papers in York county. He is not the son of Nicholas born in 1721.
