David STROUP
Ann CLONINGER
Lavinia SHETLEY
Husband:  David STROUP
Birth:  1797, Lincoln [now Gaston] Co., NC
Death apparently:  1850-60, presumably in Gaston Co., NC
Occupation:  farmer
Father:  Phillip STROUP
Mother:  Maria Magdalena "Molly" EDELMANN
Marriage-1:  14 Sep 1821, Lincoln Co., NC
Wife-1:  Ann CLONINGER
Birth:  ca. 1803
Death apparently:  1823/4, presumably in Gaston Co., NC
Occupation:  homemaker
Father:  Philip CLONINGER
Mother:  Sarah HOVIS
Marriage-2:  16 Nov 1824, Lincoln Co., NC
Wife-2:  Lavinia / Lavina / Lovina SHUTLEY / SHETLEY
Birth:  1802/3, NC
Death apparently:  1860-70, presumably in Cowan Twp., Wayne Co., MO
Occupation:  homemaker
Father:  John SHETLEY
Mother:  Anna __?__
Children with Ann CLONINGER born in Lincoln [now Gaston] Co., NC:
It is not proven that these are their children; it is merely probable.
  1.  Mary Frances "Polly" STROUP, b. 1821/2
  2.  Ephraim STROUP, b. 1823/4
Some secondary sources say these are the children of David's brother, Elias STROUP, by his prior marriage to an unknown CLONINGER.  I don't know which connection is the correct one, but the literal fact is that we have solid proof that David had a prior wife surnamed CLONINGER and no hard evidence that Elias did.  The censuses show Polly and Ephraim living with Ann's parents, Philip & Sarah (HOVIS) CLONINGER, in the 1830 and 1840 censuses (and Ephraim, still, in the 1850 census) suggesting very strongly that they're the children of a deceased daughter and Ann was their only known deceased daughter at the time.

The second Margaret is not with our subjects in the 1830 census, so whether she's Lawrence's wife or simply adopted, she's not their daughter.

2.  1830 Census Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com, Image #47 of 214; extracted by Diana Gale Matthiesen):¤
1830 NC Lincoln [now Gaston] Co. Roll 122 p. 177 Ln. 12 David Stroup 110 001 - 100 010 no slaves
These data indicate:
No. & Sex Age Class Therefore Born Individuals Inferred
1 male 4 or under 1825-1830 = Lawrence (b. 1829/30)
1 male 5-9 1820-1825 = Monroe (b. 1824/5)
1 male 30-39 1790-1800 = David (b. 1796/7)
1 female 4 or under 1825-1830 = Margaret (b. 1825/6)
1 female 20-29 1800-1810 = Lavinia (b. 1802/3)
The only children here are the ones born after David married Lavinia, but there are two young children (a boy and a girl) living with Philip & Sarah (HOVIS) CLONINGER, parents of David's late wife, Ann, who are very likely Ann's children with David.  (Ann was the only child of Philip & Sarah's who had married before 1830, so their only possible grandchildren would have to be Ann's.)

3.  1840 Census Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com, Image #79 of 84; extracted by Diana Gale Matthiesen):¤
1840 NC Lincoln [now Gaston] Co. Roll 364 pp. 139A-139B Ln. 23 David Stroup 222 001 - 022 001 no slaves 0400000

2 males 4 or under 1835-1840 = Sidney (b. 1837/8)
2 males 5-9 1830-1835 = William Henry (b. 1835)
= Son A
2 males 10-14 1825-1830 = Lawrence (b. 1829/30)
= Monroe (b. 1824/5)
1 male 30-39 1800-1810 = David (b. 1796/7) 
2 females 5-9 1830-1835 = Daughter A
= Ann (b. 1831/2)
2 females 10-14 1825-1830 = Margaret? (b. 1827/8)
= Margaret (b. 1825/6)
1 female 30-39 1800-1810 = Lavinia (b. 1802/3) 
1 person employed in agriculture
The two presumed grandchildren (a boy and a girl) living with the parents of David's late first wife in 1830 are still living with them in 1840.

4a.  1850 Census Every-Name-Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com, Image #47 of 145):  Gaston Co., NC, Roll M432_630, p. 414A, 341/342, enumerated 12 Sep 1850, official enumeration date 1 Jun 1850 (extracted by Diana Gale Matthiesen):¤
David Stroup 53 M   Farmer 120  
Lavinia  " 47 F        
Monroe   " 25 M        
Margaret " 24 F        
Lawrence " 20 M        
Margaret " 22 F       North Carolina
Ann      " 18 F        
Henry    " 15 M        
Sidney   " 12 M        
Catharine  8 F        
My first take on the second Margaret is that she's Lawrence's wife.  On the other hand, there is a female this age with our subjects in the 1840 census, however, she is not with them in the 1830 census, which suggests that, if she's not Lawrence's wife, she's adopted.  Either way, she's not our subject's daughter.

4b.  1850 Census Every-Name-Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com, Image #57 of 145):  Gaston Co., NC, Roll, p. 419A,408/408, enumerated 24 Sep 1850, official enumeration date 1 Jun 1850 (extracted by Diana Gale Matthiesen):¤()
Phillip Cloniger 69 M   Farmer    
E Stroup   " 26 M        
Nancy      " 21 F        
Mary       "  1 F        
Barbee     " 9/12 F        
"E. Stroup" is Ephraim STROUP; Nancy is his wife, and the two children are theirs.  They are living with the widowed father of our subject's first wife, Ann (CLONINGER) STROUP, who is thus Ephraim's maternal grandfather.

5.  1860 Census Every-Name-Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com, Image #8 of 11):  Lounds P.O., Cowan Twp., Wayne Co., MO, Roll M653_660, p. 695, PN 101, 62/64, enumerated 20 Aug 1860, official enumeration date 1 Jun 1860 (extracted by Diana Gale Matthiesen):¤
William H Stroup 25 M   Farmer 340 500 N Carolina
Lavina       " 56 F         "
Margret E    " 32 F         "
Ann          " 28 F         "
Sydney       " 22 M   Farmer 340   "
Isabel K     " 18 F         "
Calep        " 16 M         "
Was Caleb missed in 1850?  There is no Caleb STROUP ca. age six in the 1850 census, at all.  Or does did he use a different given name? Or is he not Lavina's son?

6.  1870 Census Every-Name-Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com):  not found.
