Nancy E. __?__
Husband:  Harmon / Harman / Harmen STROUP
Birth:  1820-25, MO
Death:  1850-60
Occupation:  farmer
Father:  Mr. STROUP
Mother:  Ms. __?__
Wife:  Nancy E. __?__
Birth:  1820/1, TN
Death:  aft. 1880
Occupation:  homemaker
Biological?/Adopted?/Foster? Children born in MO, presumably in Jefferson Co., MO:
The total lack of correspondence of the children from census to census suggests Harmon & Nancy were childless and taking in orphans or foster children.  On the other hand, we know there are serious problems with the 1860 pages for Jefferson County, so maybe all of this enumerator/NARA error.

Henry C. STROUP, b. 1846/7
.  Mary Jane STROUP, b. 1848/9

Elizabeth  9 F         "
The first letter of the adult male's name doesn't really look like the captial H's beginning Husky, but it doesn't exactly look like a "C," either.  Over and above that problem is that of Nancy's birthplace (she was born in TN) and the total lack of correspondence between the children in 1860 and those in 1850 (or 1870) raising the question as to whether this is a childless couple taking in orphans and/or foster children (n.b., I cannot find these children with another STROUP family in 1850).  The next page, page 694, is the last page for the township and it's missing, both at Ancestry.com and Genealogy.com, so there may have been younger children in the household, enumerated on the missing page.  Or did the enumerator err and these children are not surnamed STROUP?
