US Congressman. He immigrated with his family from the Bavarian city of Oberstrau to the US in 1832. Strouse was editor of Philadelphia's North American Farmer while he studied law. He was admitted to the bar in 1855 and began practice in Pottsville. Strouse was elected to Congress as a Democrat and served two terms, 1863 to 1867.
