Re: John STROUP - Jefferson Co MO

Hello Tammy,

I have a web site dedicated to STRAUB/STROUP, so your query prompted me to create a family group sheet for your John STROUP & Jessie Ava HORINE:

I was only able to find John and Jessie in the 1900 census. Have you found them in later censuses?

According to the 1900 census, Rosa M. "Rosie" STROUP was actually their stepdaughter. Do you know who here biological parents were? She married Thomas S. BRADFORD:

Their daughter, Bessie STROUP, married Claude DICKERSON:

And as you surely know, their son, Austin STROUP, married Ella MANESS:

Unfortunately, "John" is the most common name for male STROUPs, so I was unable to identify his parents. Do you know who they were?

So far, all the STROUPs identified in Jefferson Co., MO, have been descendants of Adam STROUP of NC, grandson of Johann Pieter STROUP, 1733 immigrant to Philadelphia, PA. Two or possibly three of Adam's sons migrated to Jefferson County in the 1820s, and not all of their children have been accounted for:
The given name, Austin, does run in this family.

These STROUPs have been DNA tested, so if your Austin STROUP has a living male descendant surnamed STROUP, they could be DNA tested to at least prove whether your John belonged to this family of STROUPs. I'm the administrator of the DNA project, so if you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me privately at the email address above.
