Mr. SELLERS
Elizabeth STROUP
Partner:  Mr. SELLERS
Presumed descendant of George SELLERS, who moved from PA to Lincoln [now Gaston] Co., NC, ca. 1800.
Liaison:
Subject:  Elizabeth "Lizzy / Lizzie" STROUP
Birth:  10 Dec 1851, Gaston Co., NC
Death:  24 Jul 1910, Gaston Co., NC
Occupation:  homemaker, farm laborer
Other Partners:  identity(ies) unknown
Father:  Abner Albert STROUP
Mother:  Lydia BAKER
Child born in Cherryville Twp., Gaston Co., NC:
1.  Lawson Sidney STROUP I, b. Oct 1879? or 27 Dec 1879?

Lawson does not appear in the 1880 census with Elizabeth, so was he really born in 1879?
DNA testing of a patrilineal descendant of Lawson Sidney has shown him to be a SELLERS, related to the George SELLERS linked above, so it's a virtual certainty that Lawson was fathered by one of the males in the SELLERS households surrounding Elizabeth in the 1880 census.
.  Family Finder (a-DNA) testing of this same individual supports that Elizabeth is one of the Gaston Co., NC, STROUPs.

Other children of Elizabeth STROUP, father unknown:
2.  Mary Ellen STROUP, b. Jan 1884 or 1 Oct 1881
3.  [Charles] Charley / Charlie Melvin STROUP, b. Oct 1886 or 14 May 1884
4.  [Verna] Vernie Jane STROUP, b. Sep 1887 or 13 Jan 1888; d. 7 Aug 1964

Y-DNA testing of a patrilineal descendant of Charles Melvin could determine at least his father's surname.  Unfortunately, this avenue is not open to Elizabeth's daughters.

Grandchild:
.  [Caroline] "Carry / Carrie" STROUP, b. May 1891, NC
