Children born Lincoln [now Gaston?] Co., NC:
1.  Barbara Rebecca STROUP, b. 1805; m. 23 Sep 1825, Thomas BLACK
2.  Matthew Wallace STROUP, b. 5 Dec 1807
3.  Nancy Talitha STROUP, b. 1810-15
4.  Christopher Goodson 'Christy' STROUP, b. 7 Jul 1810
5.  Jacob Cephus STROUP, b. 22 Nov 1815

7.  Isabelle "Ibby" STROUP, b. 1820-25 or 10 Sep 1828; d. 26 Apr 1901; m. Michael RUDISILL

The name "Talitha" is from an Aramaic phrase in the bible (Mark 5:41): "Talitha cumi," meaning roughly, "Damsel [I say unto thee], arise."  Often combined to form the name, "Talithacumi" (and various misspellings).

2.  1810 Census Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com; Image #2 of 4 indexed "Straup"; extracted by Diana Gale Matthiesen):¤
1810 NC Lincoln Co. * Roll M252_40 p. 375A/496 Ln. 11 Daniel Stroup 20100-10010-00
These data indicate:
No. & Sex Age Class Therefore Born Individuals Inferred
2 males 9 or under 1800-1810 = Letha? (b. ca. 1809)
= Matthew (b. 1807)
1 male 16-25 1784-1794 = Daniel (b. 1778/9)
1 female 9 or under 1800-1810 = Rebecca (b. 1805)
1 female 26-44 1765-1784 = Mary (b. 1786)
*indexed as being in "Capt. Dellinger's District," but I see nothing on the page to indicate location beyond "Lincoln County."
Daniel and Mary are tallied in the wrong age classes, but surely these are our subjects.
