Is the elderly man George's father?  I can't find him elsewhere.  The woman in her 50's is too young to be George's mother.  Listed five lines above George's brother, Jacob STROUP.

Was the ordering of the children a mistake?  Or does it signify that some of the children are not our subject's?  John appears to have been enumerated twice (see next source), or is the other one a different John?  Listed nexted to George's sister, Margaret STROUPE, who is next to George's mother, Mary (WENRICH) STROUPE.

Betsey is too old to be George's daughter, but too young to be his first wife, who has, in any case, already remarried.

Hoback William 25 M W Day laborer     "
Isabella is showing every sign of being Nancy's child from a prior marriage, which makes Isabella his stepdaughter, not his daughter.  Nancy is too old to be William STROUP's mother, so who is he?  Could Elizabeth be George's "Daughter B," born between 1830 and 1835?

Nancy is lined out, and "died" is written in the margin, so presumably she had only just died.  Listed one household below James Henry & Isabella (STROUP) GRUBB.
