Child born in PA, presumably in Bucks Co., PA, or Philadelphia Co., PA:
1.  George W. STROUP, b. 1828/9

As Jacob died when George was a minor, there should be guardianship proceedings for him in Orphan's Court.  A child was considered an "orphan" if their father died, even if their mother was still alive, a woman being deemed not capable of raising a child without male oversight.

2.  1830 Census Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com):  there are two Jacob STROUPs in Philadelphia Co., but based on the numerical data, neither seems to fit our subject, so it appears he is already deceased. 

3.  1840 Census Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com):  can't find Theobald HUG, to whom Mary Ann is apparently now married, at least not under any obvious variation of his name.

4.  1850 Census Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com; Image #19 of 38):  Kensington (Ward 8), Philadelphia Co., PA, Roll M432_807, p. 552B, 138/146, enumerated 22 Jul 1850, official enumeration date 1 Jun 1850 (extracted by Diana Gale Matthiesen):¤
