  • Notes 
    • "STRIEBY Genealogy and History 1726-1967" by Byard B. Strieby, B.
      Beatrice Strieby, and Irene M. Strieby (MacDonald Letter Services County,
      Des Moines, Iowa, 1967) John Strieby--"An improved county road,
      which leads from the little village of Bolivar, OH, in Lawrence Twp.,
      Tuscarawas County, to the slightly larger village of Strasburg, in the
      neighboring twp. of Franklin, takes one over the beautiful hill
      country near Stark County line. Crossing this road, about a mile south of
      Bolivar, is the "Old Strasburg Rd.", a winding gravel trail thru
      scenic territory, forking to the NW. On the left hand side of the
      road, about a mile from the junction is an abandoned cemetary almost
      hidden from view. It is here that the compiler found the graves of
      John Strieby and wife in a plot with corner posts, indicating it was
      once enclosed by an iron chain fence. The large tombstones had been
      laid flush with the ground rather than in upright position and were
      scarcely visible thru the overgrowth of myrtle...This cemetery is
      probably located near the old home of John and his wife in Lawrence
      Twp." "John Strieby also owned land in Salem Tract farther south in
      Tuscarawas County Several deeds in County records give evidence of his
      various transactions as also on his estate administration documents
      and Chancery records." "That the family clung to its German
      background is evidence by books in that language listed in the sale of
      property (Probate Bk. 4:396ff) as well as their membership in the
      Reformed Church. About 1835, Conrad Zutavern and wife, Anna Maria,
      together with John Strieby and wife Anna Maria, sighed a deed for
      parts of Lots 16 and 17, Sec.2, Twp. 10, for a "German Presbyterian
      and Lutheran Church to be known as Paul's Chruch" (Deed Bk. 10:212).
      John was trustee of this church said to be torn down about 1925.
      According to Beer' p. 573, Strieby, Fernsells, and others were members
      of a Lutheran Society formed in 1822.
      "HISTORY OF KOSCIUSKO COUNTY" "William (brother of Margaret
      Strieby/Stocker) was born in PA March 23, 1811, a son of John and
      Maria (Richel) Strieby, also natives of Pa. In the same year that
      William was born his parents moves to Tuscarawas County OH...."
      "STREVEY FAMILY HISTORY" by Maxine Strevey Scott, p. 6. " After
      the death of his father, John Strieby chose John Mosher of Whitehall
      Twp. for his guardian."
