Cyrenius O. STROUP
Rosetta STINE
Husband:  Cyrenius / Serenus O. STROUP
Birth (according to 1900 census):  Oct 1834, PA
Birth (apparently according to tombstone):  25 Nov 1833
Death:  13 Jun 1905, Williamsport, Lycoming Co., PA
Disposition:  buried Wildwood Cemetery, Williamsport, Lycoming Co., PA
Occupation:  brick layer
Father:  William STROUP
Mother:  Margaret HOLLICHER

Our subject is said to have been born in Northampton Co., PA, but I can't find a William STROUP in Northampton County in either the 1830 or 1840 census.

Marriage:  4 May 1854, Lock Haven, Clinton Co., PA
Wife:  Rosetta / Rosa STINE
Birth:  3 Aug 1837, Williamsport, Lycoming Co., PA
Death:  12 Nov 1902, Williamsport, Lycomnig Co., PA
Disposition:  buried Wildwood Cemetery, Williamsport, Lycoming Co., PA
Occupation:  homemaker
Father:  Jacob STINE (c1813- )
Mother:  Sarah __?__ (c1817- )
Either the marriage date is wrong or Albert's birthdate is wrong or Albert was born before our subjects married, in which case there are several possible explanations, the most likely being that our subject had a prior marriage.  However, given Albert's age in the 1860 census, it appears it's Albert's birthyear that's wrong.

If you are 65 yrs old in 1900, you were born in 1834, not 1844; and if you are 62 in 1900, you were born in 1837, not 1847.  And if you've been married for 48 yrs in 1900, you were married in 1851/2 and were most certainly not born in the 1840s.  Living next to, and in the same domicile with, their son, Charles W. STROUP.
