Why is George tallied as "Married," instead of "Divorced" or "Widowed"?  Are he and his wife merely separated?  I don't find Anna, William, or Clara (as STROUP) indexed in the census, though I do find a 25-year-old George STROUP married and living with his wife's parents, in Philadelphia. 

6.  1890 Census:  the 1890 Census Population Schedules were destroyed.
