James's middle initial is indecipherable.  It looks most like a "G," but with a stretch it could be an "S."

7.  1920 Census Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com):  James not found, though I did not do an exhaustive search.

9.  Archive of the STROUP-L Mailing List (online at RootsWeb.com), in a message posted by Rose Mary Stroup Lankford:
While going through my dad's baby book, I discovered that James Sidney Stroup (his grandfather and my great-grandfather) died November 28, 1915 at the age of 71.  I still do not know where he died but believe it to be in Indiana somewhere.  His wife, Mary Elizabeth Elliott Stroup died June 1907.
