William H. STROOPE, Sr.
Ms. MILLER?
Husband:  William H. STROOPE, Sr.
Birth:  1784/5, VA [now KY]
Death:  23 Nov 1851, Amity Twp., Clark Co., AR
Father:  Jacob STROOPE I
Mother:  Anna Maria TROUTMAN
Marriage:
Wife:  Ms. MILLER?
Birth:  1790-94
Death:  1840-50
Children:
born in Ouachita Par., LA:
  1.  Sarah Elizabeth "Sally/Liz" STROOPE, b. 17 Nov 1808
  2.  Ephraim Miller STROOPE, b. 16 Jul 1810
  3.  [Mary] "Polly" Ann Lila/Lile STROOPE, b. 23 Apr 1813
  4.  James Greenly / Greenley STROOPE, b. 22 Jun 1815
  5.  Leven Briten / Levi Britton STROOPE, b. 18 May 1817

born in Clark Co., AR:
  6.  William H. STROOPE, Jr., b. 13 Mar 1819
  7.  (Son) STROOPE, b. 1820-25
  8.  (Son) STROOPE, b. 1820-25
  9.  Nancy Stephenson STROOPE, b. 25 Jun 1823
10.  Rachel Eliza Smiley STROOPE, b. 13 Sep 1825
11.  Rebecca S. STROOPE, b. 30 Aug 1827
12.  Michael Steward STROOPE, b. 9 Feb 1829
13.  Leannah STROOPE, b. 1830/1
14.  Savarce F. STROOPE, b. 1832/3
15.  Fountain Brown STROOPE, b. 23 Apr 1835

1808 to 1835 is a span of 27 years, pretty much the maximum span of fecundity for any woman and several years longer than average.  If William had one wife, which it appears he did, he married her young, which it appears he did (based on her ages in the censuses), and she produced children for her full span of fecundity.

As best I can find out, "Savarce" is a rare Spanish surname.

1828 Tax List AR Clark Co. Caddo Twp. William STROUSS

This is almost certainly a mis-reading of STROUPS, as his brothers are on the same lists with him.
