2.  1900 Census Every-Name-Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com):  Claudie STROUP (æ 5, b. Apr 1895, OH) is living in Medina Co., OH, with his parents (q.v.).  There is a Liddie A. NESTER (æ 4, b. Sep 1895, WV) living in the Blackfork District, Tucker Co., WV, with her parents, Marty NESTOR (æ 35, b. WV) and his wife, Mariah (æ 22, b. WV).  This Liddie is the only person indexed in the entire U.S. census who comes even close to resembling our subject's wife.

3a.  1910 Census Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com):  Claudie STROUP (æ 15, b. OH) in Wayne Co., OH, with his parents (q.v.).  Can't find Lyda, but the 1910 census index is not "every name."  I did check every NESTOR/NESTER household in Tucker Co., WV.

3b.  1910 Miracode Index of Ohio (online at Ancestry.com):  can't find Lyda in OH, so presumably she is still in WV.
