Elias STROUP
Elizabeth SHETLY
WARNING:  Secondary sources give Elias a prior wife (identity unknown) and prior children (viz., Mary "Polly" STROUP and Ephraim STROUP), but I cannot find any hard evidence to support the assertion; and, on other grounds, it appears more likely that Ephraim is our subject's nephew, son of his brother, David STROUP.  Then again, I could be wrong.
