One of the owners of extensive farming interests in Clinton county is the gentleman whose name initiates this sketch.  His valuable property has been acquired through persistent effort and directness of purpose and the prosperity which is the inevitable result of such methods is today his.  In his daily life he manifests a kind regard for his fellows and a tendency to aid in any undertaking which will benefit the community of which he is an honored members.  Mr. Stroup is a pioneer of the best type, and as such his life record will go down on these pages in order that future generations may be familiar with the records of their forefathers.

Jacob Stroup was born January 9, 1839, in Madison county, Ohio, and was the son of Jacob and Naoma (Debington) Stroup.  The worthy father lived a very useful life.  He was a Republican in politics and had the honor of holding a friendship with Abraham Lincoln.

Jacob Stroup had the advantage of a common school education in his youth in the schools of his native county.  Tipton county, Indiana, was the scene of his next location and he lived there for a period of five years.  Then he removed to Johnson township, Clinton county, and lived prosperously and happily in this place until March, 1913, when he retired and with his family moved to Kempton, Indiana, in preparation to spend the rest of his days in peace and quiet.

In the Civil War Mr. Stroup bore a part, although he did not enlist until February, 1865.  The end of the war at that time was very near, but the country did not see it; hostilities appeared to be reaching a crisis instead of the surrender of Lee at Appomattox, and fresh enlistments were being sent to the front from all the Union states.  Mr. Stroup was a member of one of these.  He recruited in Company C, Fifty-eighth Indiana Volunteer Infantry, under Captain Milburn.  Mr. Stroup participated in several skirmishes during his service, many of them in and around Bentonville, North Carolina.  He was mustered out on July 25, 1865, but not discharged until August 5 of that year.  According to his comrades, Mr. Stroup ever proved a valiant and faithful soldier.

On September 19, 1869, Mr. Stroup was married to Margaret J. Eford, who was born in Clinton county, the daughter of Edward and Julia (Rancipher) Eford, natives of Ohio.  Her father was a farmer and later in life was a merchant and stock shipper.  Twelve children were born to our subject and wife, namely: Margaret, Oliver, Mrs. Oltie Boulden, Mrs. Ora Long, Mrs. Bertha Goodnight, Mrs. Orphie Bell Eaton, James B., John B., and married Rachel White; Zona, born June 10, 1887; Mrs. Chloe Orr, A.J., and Garnett.

All of his life Mr. Stroup has followed farming.  He owns three hundred and sixty acres here in Clinton county, all of which is tillable with the exception of about twenty-five acres.  The land is well tiled and fenced.  Once Mr. Stroup raised Short Horn cattle, and Poland China and Chester White hogs, he now devotes his time to the Duroc brand of swine.  Mr. Stroup owns a fine home in the little town of Kempton, where he is now living.

Naturally, Mr. Stroup is a member of the Grand Army of the Republic and he takes an active part in the running of the same. Politically, he is a Progressive.

Notes:  Most sources show Margaret's name as DEFORD, not EFORD.  Some show it as De FORD.  Daughter Margaret is the daughter of Jacob's first wife, Elizabeth BURGET.
