including one citing the Descendants of David Holsinger of Virginia by Paul G. Holsinger.
Mary Holsinger, b. at Broadway, VA, md. John Stroop, b. in Page Co./Stroupe - Betty, b. Mar. 1850, d. Mar. 1937, md. Frank Geth; Frank b. Dec. 8, 1854, d July 10, 1930, md. Mary Bazzle; Noah, B. Jan. 6, 1856, md. Lydia Jane Short; John, b. Oct. 9, 1860 (?), md. Susan Henry.
These birth dates do not jibe well with the censuses, and I'll take the censuses as the primary record over this secondary one.  Certainly, the ordering of the children 1) Elizabeth, 2) John, 3) Noah, and 4) David F. in no less than two censuses, has to be taken as the correct order, even if the exact birth years remain uncertain.
