Clark County is some distance from Grant County, so I would not immediately suspect this is our subject's son.  However, I checked the 1900 and 1920 censuses, and I do not find another Charles STROUP this age in Indiana.  If there were a genealogical connection to the GILTNER family, one might easily understand why he would be so far away, but I don't see one, nor is one indicated in the record.  This is not Charles's "home farm," so he should have been enumerated as "working out."
