Birth date seems to vary, I used the Select Births and Baptisms, 1558-1898 by Ancestry.

Martin was born in Evangelisch, Krotoschin Stadt, Posen, Prussia. Martin married Elizabeth Hehr before coming to the U.S. with four children, they had 7 before Elizabeth died. After Elizabeth's death he married Pauline Klingbiel and they had four more children.

Martin Strobel Is Dead
Prominent St. Clair Farmer Passed Away Suddenly.

Martin Strobel passed away very suddenly yesterday afternoon upon his farm near St. Clair. He ate his dinner as usual yesterday, and then felt better than usual. He went upstairs to his room and lay down to rest. Twenty minutes later his wife heard a peculiar sound in his room and went up to investigate. She had not been with her husband more that three minutes when he died. His death was undoubtedly due to heart disease.
Mr. Strobel was seventy seven years of age, and is survived by his wife and several children, all grown. He was formerly a resident of Mankato and was employed at the Bierbauer Brewery, but thirteen years ago he moved to the farm near St. Clair and resided there ever since. He was one of the early settlers, and was well known and highly respected by all.
Owing to the fact that Mr. Strobel died without the attendance of a doctor, Coroner Kennedy was called, but found the facts to be as above stated.
Funeral services will be held from the home tomorrow forenoon, and the interment will be made at the German Lutheran cemetery in this city.
