This greater age for Alexander (compared to 1850) has to be the correct one, otherwise he cannot be a son of the parents to whom he's attached.

The household above them is surnamed BAKER, and Irene is thus indexed BAKER, but we know they should have been enumerated STROUP.  I can't find any of the three youngest children, Catharine, Sarah, or Henrietta.
