I can use help from any genealogists in Columbia County. When I was in PA reseaching my roots I saw volumes of published genealogies by county (I think they were written in the late 1800's). I believe one was by Bell; I do not know the other publisher's name but the volumes covered Columbia & Montour Counties.. Since I didn't know then which Strauser was my ancestor, I noted all page numbers having anything to do with any Strausers/Straussers. Since then I have found out which is my gg grandfather - Solomon Strauser (married Lucy A. Helwig) - and his info is on page 781. If anyone has access to these books and can tell me what it says I would be most appreciative.
