p. 1056 Charles H. Stroup, a prominent citizen of Johnstown, is a member of a well known pioneer family of Cambria County.  He was born in this city, Feb. 6, 1870, and is the son of Daniel and Catherine (Steiner) Stroup.

Daniel Stroup, deceased, was born in Philadelphia.  In 1850, he came to Johnstown with Benjamin Hinchman, and they were the first masons and bricklayers in the city.  For many years Mr. Stroup was identified with the Cambria Iron Company.  He died in April 1890.  He was a Whig when he came to Cambria County and became a Republican when that party was organized.  He was a member of the Universalist Church and Independent Order of Odd Fellows.  His wife died Nov. 11, 1911.  To Mr. and Mrs. Stroup the following children were born: John M., died in 1907; Daniel W. and James, deceased; Sally, died in 1889, during the Johnstown flood; Sherman T., died in 1918; Charles H., the subject of this sketch; George and Millard, both deceased.

Charles H. Stroup received his education in the schools of Johnstown and attended Bennett & Greer Business College.  He entered the employ of the Cambria Iron Company at an early age, where he learned the brick-layer's trade.  Following the Johnstown flood, he engaged in the contracting business until 1917.  Mr. Stroup organized the Elton (Pa.) Lumber and Supply Company in 1924 and is its vice president.

Transcriber's Note:  Daniel's wife died on the 23rd of November, not the 11th.  Daniel's daughter, Sally, died on 11 Oct 1889, not in the famous flood of 31 May 1889.
p. 1057 On Nov. 21, 1895, Mr. Stroup was united in marriage with Miss Adelia Manges, who was born in Bedford County, Pa., July 28, 1869, the daughter of Abraham and Adelia (Campbell) MangesAbraham Manges was born in Bedford County, Pa., April 22, 1842, and his wife was a native of Ireland.  He served throughout the Civil war as a member of Company H, Fourteenth Pennsylvania Volunteer Infantry, and was seriously woulded and was taken prisoner.  Mr. Manges was a pioneer employe of the Cambria Iron Works.  He died April 26, 1907, and his wife died Dec. 22, 1907.  They were the parents of five children:  Mary, deceased; Elizabeth, twin sister of Mary, is the widow of Seth Haskings, lives at Wheeling, W.Va.; Mrs. Stroup; Clifford B., deceased; and J. Floyd, lives at Youngstown, Ohio.

Mr. and Mrs. Stroup have one son, Dr. Horace Clefford Stroup.  He was educated and graduated in the schools of Johnstown and Lehigh University, and in 1917 volunteered for service in the World war.  He served with Company G, Twenty-eighth Infantry, First Divison, and was in active service in France for 26 months.  He was discharged Aug. 1, 1919.  In 1925 he was graduated from Hahnamann Medical College and has since engaged in the practice of his profession in Johnstown.  He was married Nov. 5, 1920, to Miss Hazel Salls, of Burlington, Vt., and they have a son, Richard Horace, born Dec. 7, 1924.

Charles H. Stroup is a Republican, a member of the Lutheran Church, Knights of Pythias, Elks Lodge, and Patriotic Sons of America.  He is accounted one of the reliable business men of Cambria County and has a wide acquaintance.

Mr. Stroup served in 1914, an unexpired term, of Mr. Miltenberger on the Planning Commission, and in this responsibility, as in all others placed upon him, he labored t all times to secure the greatest amount of good to the greatest possible nubmer of his fellow citizens.  He supported the movement to give the people of this city the benefits for the future of a thorough survey of the present as a basis for a comprehensive plan and report.  He persistently urged the imporvement of the Point as a civic center.  These proposed improvements, when officially adopted, necessitated the selection of planners to perform the surveys and he halped to organize this work on a practical basis.

In November, 1917, Mr. Stroup was elected a member of the Johnstown City Council, and this commission compelled him to resign as a member of the planning body.  Howerver, he maintained his interest in the

Transcriber's Note:  In the 1880 Census, there is an Abram MANGAS (æ 37, b. PA) living in Johnstown, Cambria Co., PA.  He has wife Elizabeth (æ 34, b. NY) and these children:  Adelia (12), Mary (12), Malinda (10), and Clifford (5).  So is the census wrong or is this bio wrong?  Assuming Charles was the informant for this bio, how could he have gotten it wrong?
p. 1058 City Planning Commission.  As the president of the Municipal Recreation Board he was largely instrumental in placing recreation under proper supervision and directing this important work for the benefit of all the people of Johnstown.  Mr. Stroup, with Thomas Nokes, Charles H. Meyers, secretary of the school board, Harry Hesselbine, and Anderson H. Walters, organized the Municipal Recreation Board in 1918, this being the foundation of public recreation under municipal control, and Mr. Stroup was president by reason of his office as superintendent of parks and public property.

During the World war, Mr. Stroup was a Four-Minute Man and holds a Certificate of Honor in recognition of loyal and devoted service as a Four-Minute Man of the Committee on Public Information.

In November, 1923, he was elected to the Johnstown School Board for a six-year term and has served from the beginning as a member of the building committee, throughout the extensive building program of the board of education, which erected the Cochran Junior High School, Central High School, and the Garfield Junior High School, besides several new grade school buildings.  He is also charman of the textbook and supply committee, which has charge of all furnishings of all new school buildings as well as the old one.  He is charman of the proposed college extension course connected with the schools of Johnstown.
