This record was extremely difficult to read, so I may not have got it entirely correct.

8.  Samuel P. Bates.  1888.  History of Greene County, Pennsylvania.  Nelson, Rishforth & Co., Chicago (online at Genealogy.com).  On p. 858:
THOMAS STROPE, farmer and stock-grower, Deep Valley, Penn., was born November 22, 1823, and is a son of Thomas and Sarah (Elems) Stope (sic).  His parents were of English descent.  His father, who was a farmer during his lifetime, died in 1848.  Mr. Thomas Thrope (sic) is a fourth in his father's family and the eldest who grew to maturity.  His opportunities for an education were very limited.  He is a self-made man and now owns 290 acres of well improved land.  When he was a small boy, he worked by the month and then worked on a farm as a tenant.  He also learned the tanner's trade, at which he was employed until twenty-four years of age.  Mr. Strope's first wife was Eliza Mitchell, who lived twenty-five years after their marriage.  They had one child, George W.  Mrs. Sarah Jane Strope, the present wife, was the daughter [of] Jacob Miller, a prominent farmer of Springhill Township.  Mr. and Mrs. Strope are the parents of two children -- Park L. and Purman D.  Mr. Strope is a Republican.  He is a member of the Masonic Fraternity and the Patrons of Husbandry.  He and wife are members of the Church of God.
In the 1900 census, Thomas gives his birthdate as Nov 1824, which is more in line with other censuses as well.  Sarah may have been English, but Thomas was German.  Thomas was not the fourth child of his father; he was the fourth of his father's surviving children.  He was the first and eldest of the four children of Sarah (ALLUM) STROPE, his father's second wife.  His father had a prior wife and at least seven prior children.
