p. 775 JACOB STROUP was born March 26, 1811, in Seneca County, N.Y.; his father was George Stroup, a native of Pennsylvania, of German descent; his mother was Susan Rigel Stroup, also born in Pennsylvania and of German descent; they moved to the State of New York in 1796; his mother died in New York State in 1825, leaving a family of thirteen children: one of the children died in New York State in 1833; five children moved to Michigan in 1827 and 1828; his father married again and moved to Michigan, in 1834, with a family of seven children; of this family seven are now living three sons and four daughters. George Stroup located in Macomb Township, Section 10, southeast quarter; took up 240 acres of land, where he lived until his death, October 31, 1858, in his eighty-second year.  Mr. S. received his education in New York State.  He was married, September 16, 1841, to Betsey Jane Perkins, a native of Seneca County, N.Y., whose parents came to Michigan in 1837; he is a Democrat and has never changed his political views: in 1840, when the town of Macomb comprised that of Chesterfield, he was elected Constable; in 1842, he was elected Town clerk, the first one elected after the division of the township; in 1873, he was elected Supervisor of Macomb, and has held the office eight years.  Mr. S. is an influential man in the town, and carries a great deal of weight in political matters; the office of Clerk he has held for twenty-three years at different times.
p. 776 Mr. S.'s family comprises five children Paulina, George M., Samuel J., Charles M. and Frank L.  The daughter is residing in Seneca County, N.Y.  Samuel J. resides in Mt. Clemens, and the other in the town of Macomb; he was Inspector for several years, and continues to take a deep interest in political matters, as he does in the social well-being of his division of the county.
