Michael STRIEBY (Hans Michael) was born on 21 SEP 1757 in Strieby Town, Northampton Co, Pennsylvania. He died on 20 AUG 1830 in Greersburg, Beaver Co, Pennsylvania.

Michael Strieby, son of Hans Michael and Barbara Strieby, married Magdalena Klinkhart. Michael's Revolutionary War record shows he was a private in the Seventh Class, Captain George Groffs Third Company, First Battalion of the Northampton County Militia, according to the evidence of a general muster roll dated May 14, 1778. He was a silversmith and clockmaker as well as a farmer in Whitehall Twp, Northampton Co, Pennsylvania. From there they are said to have moved to a farm inherited by his wife in Nockamixon Twp, Bucks Co, Pennsylvania. They left that farm about 1798 and located in Pittsburgh on Wood Street where they remained until moving to Greersburg, now Darlington, in 1802. Old letters handed down in the family indicate he spent some time about 1820 in Lycoming Co, Pa.
