Joseph Franklin STROUP
Elizabeth MOORE
Husband:  Joseph Franklin STROUP
Birth (date according to census):  1815/6, Lincoln Co., NC
Birth (date said to be):  14 Oct 1817
Death:  10 Nov 1862, Lincoln Co., NC
Disposition:  buried Salem Baptist Church Cemetery, Lincolnton, Lincoln Co., NC
Father:  Philip STROUP
Mother:  Catherine MASTERS

I find it difficult to believe Joseph and his wife were born on the exact same day, and the fact that they give different ages in the 1850 census indicates they weren't.  A quick check of the 1900 census shows Eliza's birthdate as "Oct 1817," so it appears Joseph's birthdate is the one that's wrong.

These data indicate:
No. & Sex Age Class Therefore Born Individuals Inferred
1 male 20-29 1810-1820 = Joseph (b. 1815/6)
1 female 4 or under 1835-1840 = Adaline (b. 1838)
1 female 15-19 1820-1825 = Elizabeth (b. 1817)
1 person employed in manufacture and trade
Elizabeth is in the wrong age class, but surely these are our subjects.  Listed five lines above David STROUP, who is two lines above Moses STROUP.
