p. 118 Survey Book 1, Wythe County, 1791-1800
pp. 160-162
January 22, 1795... including the following prior claims: 200 acres for Isaac Newhouse, 200 acres for ___ Stroupe on head of Cripple Creek...
p. 119 p. 183
May 16, 1795, Isaac Newhouse, 200 acres on an entry based on a Treasury Warrant, 1783, assigned by James Newell, headwaters of Criple Creek, adjoining Stroup.
The STROUP here has to be John Peter STROUP as the only STROUP in the county old enough to own land in 1795.  Not insignificantly, a paper descendant of John Peter is a genetic match to NEWHOUSE.
