I have done some work on him, although I know him as Elisha "Eli" STROUP. He was born 1815-19 in PA. I have his census records extracted on his web page:

Eli STROUP & Rebecca NEWMAN had these children:

born in PA:
01. James F. M. STROUP, b. 21 Oct 1842
02. Mary E. STROUP, b. 1844/5
03. John Woodbury STROUP, b. 1846/7 or 9 Oct 1850
04. Amanda STROUP, b. 1848/9

born in Sullivan Co., PA:
05. Alfred STROUP, b. 1850/1
06. Philomela / Phlomela / Amelia STROUP, b. 1853/4
07. Ann / Anna STROUP, b. 1854/5
08. Ebenezer STROUP, b. 1857/8; d. bef. 1870
09. Monroe STROUP, b. 1861/2
10. Annette STROUP, b. Jan 1870; d. bef. 1880

The original surname is German STRAUB, most of whom had it immediately Anglicized it to STROUP.
