4.  Sarah Anne STROUP, b. 1847/8

Nancy is said to have married George ca. 1849, but because only Eliza was left behind in Ohio with her grandmother, Hannah GOODWIN, I'm inclined to think that only Eliza was Sophronia's child.  Or did George have a wife between Sophronia and Nancy?

The BECK family doesn't appear to have any genealogical relationship with the STROUPs; it looks like George and St. Leger simply work together.

Hannah Goodwin 58 F     200 Pa
Hannah Goodwin 17 F       Ohio

The older Hannah is believed to be Sophronia's mother, and it's reasonable that she would take in her granddaughter.
