8.  Jean C. Tombaugh & Wendell C. Tombaugh.  1993. Fulton County Indiana Cemetery Inscriptions (with Genealogical Notes): Rochester Township.  Tombaugh House, Rochester, IN (online at the Fulton County, Indiana, Library web site; no pagination):
This abandoned burying ground is on the old Alonzo Sheets (more recently Joseph Richards) farm, on 250N about one and three-tenths mile west of 250N & 400W, in Rochester Township, Fulton County, Indiana.  It is at the very back of a field about two city blocks north of the road. Stones were read as found, not in any rows.  Readings made in 1975...

McKEE, Nancy, wife of A., d. Mar 5, 1860, ae 59y-11m...

(----), ----
[NOTE: All that could be found of this marker is the top portion, with a 5-6 inch millstone carved in it. It might be the missing top the the David A. McKee grave marker. Census records indicate that he was a miller.]

(----), -----, d. Sep 2, --------ae 72y-3----
[NOTE: This is the lower left part of the marker, and all that remains. It probably is a part of the stone, which was reported by Manitou Chapter DAR, Genealogical Survey, Fulton Co Ind Cemeteries, 1935: Anthony McKee, d. Sep 22, 1868, ae 73y-3m-21d.
Anthony W. McKee was born in Penn or Ohio, and is said to have been in the War of 1812.  He was born June 1, 1795. He married Nancy Agnew, and they were residents of Shelby Co Ind by ca. 1834; and in Fulton Co Ind by 1850, residents of Rochester Twp with six children.  He was living with Russell McKee (probably his son) in 1860, age 64 years.  Children of Anthony W. and Nancy (Agnew) McKee included: (1) Mary A. b.ca.1817 Ohio, m. by 1836, Shelby Co Ind, James Keely (1812-1892); (2) Isaac b.ca.1830 Ohio; (3) Riley G. b.ca.1834 Ind, m. 1855 Mary A. Thurston; (4) Phebe b.ca.1835 Ind; (5) William b.ca.1837 Ind; (6) James 1838-1859; (7) Martin b.ca.1843 Ind.

Two other McKee families, living in Rochester Twp in 1850, near the Anthony W. McKee household, and who were probably related, were: (1) David A. McKee b. 1816 Ohio, identified as a "miller" in 1860 census, m. (by 1841) Sarah A., and it was this family, with whom Reubin Stroup resided in 1850. (2)...
1935 reveals: David A. McKee, d. Feb 20, 1873, ae 56y-3m-25d.  He resided in Rochester 1860, in Newcastle Twp in 1870, and his widow was living in Bloomingsburg, Newcastle Twp in 1880.]

STROUP, Reuben, son of J. & M., d. Dec 14, 1853, ae 16y-5d
[NOTE: There is no clear certainty as to the names of the parents of Reuben Strout. The name is spelled several ways: Stroup, Stroub, Straub, Stroab and Strobe.

Indiana Census 1840, includes: Samuel Stroup, in Elkhart Co. Barnhart's History of Fulton Co Ind, p. 32, states that Samuel Stroub was an early settler of Wayne Twp., Fulton Co., in 1840. Fulton Co Ind Early Tract Book, shows that Samuel Stroab of Cass Co Ind purchased land in Wayne Twp, 1841. Also Fulton Co Ind Commissioners Record "A", includes the name of Samuel Stroub in the list of Petit Jurors for Sept. Term 1843. And lastly, concerning the estate of Samuel Stroub, Admr., Jacob Shafer, was appt'd Sept. 29, 1849, and Final Report was accepted July Term 1854 (Jean C. & Wendell C. Tombaugh, Fulton Co Ind Probate Docket "A", 1836-1856).

Martha Stroub, b.ca.1814 Penn, might have been the mother of Reuben Stroup. Obviously, Martha first m. a Stroup, and next Spencer Gill Dec. 25, 1849. Spencer Gill was a resident of Ripley Co Ind in 1840 (Census; also seeFulton Co Ind M.R.) Spencer Gill and his wife, Martha, his four children, and her son Silas V. Stroub (ae 3yr) were residents of Fulton Co Ind, Wayne Twp, in 1850 Census. The Fulton Co Ind Census 1860, reflects still a third marriage for Martha, and Fulton Co Ind M.R. indicate that on Nov. 15, 1857, Martha Gill m. Samuel Stubbs.

Samuel and Elias Stubb and Joseph Stroup were all residents of Shelby Co Ind in 1840, and were perhaps acquainted before coming to Fulton Co.
Samuel Stubbs, 1814-1889 (Fulton Co Ind Cem, Union Twp) and his 2nd wife, Martha, his four children, and her three children: Silas M. Stroub (ae 14yr), Albert A. Stroub (ae 11yr), and Mary Gill (ae 7yr), residents of Wayne Twp, Fulton Co Ind (Census 1860) Fulton Co Ind Guardianship Index indicates that guardianship papers were filed on April 5, 1855, for Silas Strobe; final report date April 19, 1866. Silas M. Stroub was a Pvt Co A, 155 Regt Ind, in the Civil War (Peattie, History of Fulton Co Ind, p. 12)...

The authors' musings are a total hodge-podge.  Reuben STROUP's parents were Joseph STROUP & Mary TUCKER.  He is the brother of David McKEE's wife, Sarah Ann (STROUP) McKEE.  The Samuel STROUP in the 1840 census of Elkhart Co., IN, is not remotely related to Reuben STROUP and Sarah Ann (STROUP) McKEE of Fulton Co., IN.
