Node Chart for Descendants Jacob STROUP II (1771-1846) of Lincoln Co., NC, and Cass [now Bartow] Co., SC
It was once thought that Jacob STROUP II (1771-1846) was a grandson of Jacob STROUP I (1724-1804) through Jacob I's son, Adam STROUP (1746-1835).  DNA testing has now proven that the long-accepted biological connection between Jacob II and Adam cannot be correct.

Currently, we have tested three individuals with paper descents from Jacob II.  These individuals are all Haplogroup J2, and they are a tight genetic match with each other, consistent with them having a near common ancestor.  Each descends from a different son of Jacob II, so, logically, Jacob II must also have been J2.  The other tested descendants of Jacob STROUP I and his great-grandfather, Martin STRAUB (1616-1676), of Großgartach, Württemberg are Haplogroup I1, which means these individuals cannot have shared a common ancestor with the descendants of Jacob II for tens of thousands of years.

There is strong paper evidence that Jacob II was a son of Adam (in a deed, Jacob II gives his father's name as Adam), which leads us to a possible scenario that, as Adam's eldest son on paper, he is probably the child of a former marriage of Adam's wife, Catherine ALEXANDER.  In other words, Jacob II may be Adam's stepson.  The fact that these three J2 individuals have a strong DNA match (35/37) with an individual surnamed BIDDLE suggests that Catherine's prior husband was a man surnamed BIDDLE.  With the goal of identifying this man, or at least of identifying his family, I've started a BIDDLE Y-DNA Surname Project.

#101308 This individual has a 12/12 match with the other two paper descendants of Jacob II. The fact that these three match
genetically, despite descending
from Jacob II on separate lines,
indicates that the non-match to
Jacob I is not caused by recent
NPEs in the test subjects'
lineages, but rather that Jacob II
is not Adam's biological son.

Pvt #101265 These two individuals match each other at the level of 25/25, in addition to matching the above individual 12/12.  #33766 matches a BIDDLE 35/37.
