George's age is correct; Jeanette has shaved a year off her age.  George's father was born in PA; Jeanette obviously doesn't know where her parents were born (see also 1920).

(V) = (Verified) Report verified with a family member or someone acting on behalf of a family member.
The 1900 census has Jeanette born in Oct 1895.  Is the birth date in the SSDI an error?  Or is this not George's wife?  If not, it's an incredible coincidence.  I have checked the 1930 census, and there are only five Jeanette/etc. STROUPs, and only one of them was born before 1900; that one is George's wife.

10.  Tombstone Photos posted to the STROUP Surname Board (online at Ancestry.com/RootsWeb.com; transcription from the photo by Diana Gale Matthiesen):

* DEC. 6,
*There's a symbol on the stone I don't recognize:  a perched bird (an eagle?) with two head (one looking left, the other right), with a triangle on its body (tip pointing down).  Does anyone recognize the symbol?
