Liza Ann __?__
NOTICE:  a patrilineal descendant of our subject is participating in the STRAUB Y-chromosome DNA Surname Project.  Anyone who suspects he descends from our subject on a direct male line can support that connection with a DNA test.  We do not yet know the true identity of Elisha's parents, but his DNA test results prove he is descended from Jacob STROUP I (1722-1804/5) of Lincoln [now Gaston] Co., NC.
Husband:  Elisha STROUP
Birth:  1810-12, NC
Death:  1893
Occupation:  farmer, iron worker
Y-DNA Haplogroup:  I1-L592

Elisha is said to be the son of these parents, but he cannot be because Jacob's descendants are Y-DNA Haplogroup J2.
People in different haplogroups cannot have shared a common ancestor for thousands of years.
Father notJacob STROUP II (1771-1846)
Mother notHannah HOYLE (1763-1820)
Jacob STROUP II, paper grandson of Jacob STROUP I, has an NPE, so is not a biological grandson of Jacob I.
