PHILIP MAUS STRAWBRIDGE
Phillip Maus Strawbridge and his wife emigrated from Pennsylvania to Ohio at least byt he 1850 census. The following year, they moved to Oregon in a covered wagon pulled by oxen, with the journey taking a year, which also saw the death of their son George at the age of six. Philip died of Mountain or typhoid fever 3 days after arriving in Portland, Oregon. His wife Elizabeth is found in the 1880 census living with her son Joseph A. Strowbridge.
