Boston STROPE
Elizabeth CHRISTY
Husband:  Boston STROPE
Birth:  1823/4 or 1825/6, OH
Occupation:  laborer, farmer

Boston is said to be son of these parents, but if Boston was born in 1823/4, then they are very young to be his parents.  Also, there is no room for Boston in their household in the 1830 and 1840 censuses.
Father said to beWilliam STROPE, b. 1805
Mother said to beNancy BLUE, b. 1808

"Boston" is almost certainly a corruption of "Bastian," the nickname for Sebastian, which suggest he may be descended from Sebastian STROPE.

Paulding Co., OH, is at the edge of the state, adjacent to Indiana, so it's certainly possible that Nancy was born in Indiana, but in the 1850 census, her birthplace is given as Ohio.
