Children with Tamer NELSON born in Franklin Twp., Jackson Co., OH:
  1.  Angelina STROPES, b. 1824/5 
  2.  (Daughter A) STROPES, b. 1825-30
  3.  (Daughter B) STROPES, b. 1825-30
  4.  Lydia STROPES, b. 1826/7 
  5.  Henry Clay STROPES, b. 1827/8 or 9 Mar 1830 
  6.  William A. J. STROPES, b. 1831/2
  7.  Jane STROPES, b. 1833/4 
  8.  John F. STROPES, b. 1835/6
  9.  (Son A) STROPES, b. 1835-40; d. by 1850
10.  (Daughter A) STROPES, b. 1835-40, d. by 1850
11.  Zeralda STROPES, b. 17 Jan 1845

Some secondary sources give our subjects this daughter:
Maria Minerva STROPES, b. 1821-23, OH
but unless Maria is inflating her age in the censuses (which women are not inclined to do), she was born before Henry & Tamer were married.

Adopted Child?
Is this child a daughter of Henry?  Did Henry have three wives?  Or is she a granddaughter or niece?  Or is she Mary's daughter from her prior marriage, adopted by Henry and, thus, adopting his surname?  This last seems the most likely.
.  Margaret STROPES, b. 1860/1
Children with Mary MILLER:
12.  Mary Magdalene STROPES, b. 31 Mar 1868
13.  Martha STROPES, b. 31 Mar 1869
