Marion STROUP
Jennie __?__
Gussie ROWELL
WARNING:  there are some anomalies in this family group sheet with regard to the eldest child (discussed below).  If you have the answers, please share.
Husband:  Marion STROUP
Birth:  1 May 1879, Bartow Co., GA
Death:  25 Apr 1942, Polk Co., GA
Disposition:  buried Lime Branch Cemetery, Polk Co., GA
Father:  Aaron STROUP
Mother:  Mary Elizabeth COLEMAN
Marriage-1:  1899
Wife-1:  Jennie __?__
Birth: 
Marriage-2:  1908/9
Wife-2:  Gussie ROWELL
Birth:  16 Oct 1888, Polk Co., GA
Death:  29 Dec 1976, Polk Co., GA
Last Residence:  Cedartown, Polk Co., GA
Disposition:  buried Lime Branch Cemetery, Polk Co., GA
Father:  Lewis Edward ROWELL
Mother:  Mary M. YANCEY
Children with Jennie:
-
Adopted(?) Child:
1.  Obbelia / Ophelia STROUP, b. 22 Apr 1907, GA; d. 31 Oct 1999; last residence Cedartown, Polk Co., GA; m. Mr. BOWMAN; issue: Paul BOWMAN (b. Dec 1928, GA)

Ophelia is called "daughter" in the 1920 and 1930 censuses, but she was not in our subject's household in the 1910 census.  Was she adopted?  Another oddity here is that she appears in the SSDI under surname STROUP.  Why did she revert to her "maiden" name (if, indeed, it was her true maiden name)?  Or did Ophelia marry second to a STROUP?  If she was not blood kin to begin with, there would have been no inhibition to marrying a STROUP cousin (or even a step-brother).

Several of the ages were overwritted; I can't tell which is the original entry and which is the correction.  Where did "Obbelia" come from?  She was not in the household in 1910.  Was she adopted?  Or is she a child from a prior marriage?  I tried finding Ophelia in the 1910 census, without obvious success.
