  9.  Henry Don STROUP, b. 1847/8

Secondary sources show all the children born in GA as having been born in "Trickum, Dogwood Valley, Whitfield Co., GA."

Adopted Child of Matilda ESLINGER:
10.  Richard Bruce ESLINGER-STROUP, b. 2 Nov 1852, GA; d. aft. 1900; m. 1 Oct 1881, Catoosa Co., GA, Florence LOWE (c1853- )

Based on the 1860 census, I would have said Richard was Matilda's son by a prior marriage (to a Mr. ESLINGER); however, some secondary sources say she was the daughter of Daniel & Mary ESLINGER.  So Did Matilda ESLINGER marry first a Mr. ESLINGER?  Or was Richard her illegitimate son?  Either way, he is not our subject's son.

These data were extracted from submitted family group sheets.  They are not primary records, so caveat emptor.
I've found no primary source giving him a middle name, so it's questionable whether this source is correct.
