Birth: Sep. 3, 1906
Henry County
Ohio, USA
Death: Mar. 14, 1989
Fairborn
Greene County
Ohio, USA

Marie was born in Damascas township, Henry Co, Ohio. Her family moved to Wood County, Ohio by the time of the 1920 census. In 1930 she lived with her widowed mother and brother Ralph, a truck farmer, in Grand Rapids township, Wood County; she was teaching school. She was a public school teacher in Bowling Green, Ohio for many years. She did not marry; that would have meant the loss of her job according to the rules of the time.

She is an 8th US generation Straubaugh - Gerard descendant. Ancestors Nicholas Strausbaugh and Catherine Gerard came to Pennsylvania in 1736 from the County of Salm, German part of the Holy Roman Empire; now in the Dept. Bas-Rhin, Alsace, France.
