Based on earlier censuses, the ages and birthyears of the STROUP children are clearly incorrect.  Perhaps it was done to support Sallie's fib about her age because she had been well on her way to becoming an old maid.

"Trucker" here has to mean "truck farmer"; that is, someone who grows specialty crops, such as produce or flowers (as opposed to a farmer who raises livestock or cereal grains).
