Peter STROUP
Adeline CLUSEY
Husband:  Peter STRAUB / STROUP / STROUPP / STROUPE
Birth:  Aug 1832, Philadelphia, Philadelphia Co., PA
Death:  1 Apr 1911
Disposition:  buried Philadelphia National Cemetery, Philadelphia, Philadelphia Co., PA
Occupation:  shoemaker
Military Service:  Civil War:  1861, Pvt., Co. K, 17th PA Inf.; 1861-65, Sgt., Co. D, 98th PA Inf.
Father:  Peter STROUP
Mother:  Elizabeth __?__
Marriage:  1852 or 1855/6 or 1857/8
Wife:  Adeline CLUSEY / CLUSY / CROUSE
Birth:  Nov 1832, PA
Occupation:  homemaker
Nephew:  Harry CLUSEY, b. May 1852, PA
Father:  Peter CROUSE / CRUSE / CRUSIE / CLUSEY
Mother:  Maria __?__
Children born in Philadelphia, Philadelphia Co., PA:
1.  George W. STROUP, b. 1853/4; d. by 1870
2.  Samuel STROUP, b. Jul 1859; d. by 1864/5
3.  Peter STROUP, b. 1860
4.  Adeline STROUP, b. 1861/2
5.  Samuel STROUP, b. 1864/5; d. by 1880
6.  Anna Caroline STROUP, b. 1866/7
7.  Thomas STROUP, b. 1870/1
8.  Catharine STROUP, b. May 1873 

If Peter & Adaline were married in 1857/8 or even in 1855/6, then Peter had a prior wife who was the mother of George W.  Either that or George's age in the 1860 census is wrong, which is certainly possible.

This is the only Peter STROUP (or variation) I can find in Philadelphia County who comes close to being our subject.  His occupation also supports his identity.  Samuel STROUP is presumably Peter's brother.

Peter & Adaline should both be 77 years old.  As best I can figure, they haven't been married 52 years, but rather were married in 1852.  If they really were married in 1857/8, then Peter had a prior wife who was the mother of his son, George W. STROUP.
