Ms. __?__
Catharine FAUST
Elizabeth CAHIL
WARNING:  this family group sheet is tentative.  Some of the children may be John's nieces and nephews, not his children; or, they may be the children of John's uncle, Anthony STROUP, which would make them his cousins.  There are some anomalies of time and place that need to be resolved.

The age difference between John and Catharine strongly suggests he had a prior wife, and she may be the mother of the younger children.

Elizabeth Stroup 39 F       Ohio

If the children were, in fact, born in Ohio, then all I can think of is that they are Elizabeth's by a former marriage and she has only just married John — or, that Elizabeth is a recently widowed daughter-in-law.  But the same thing happened to Joseph STROUP, on p. 92A (i.e., in 1850, his children were born in OH, but in 1860, they were born in IN). 

5b.  Census Microfilm Records:  Indiana, 1850 (Broderbund CD-302):  District No. Fifty Two, Huntington Co., IN, p. 88B, 1255/1255, enumerated 24 Oct 1850 (extracted by Diana Gale Matthiesen):
Joseph Beard 30 m Farmer 500 Ohio
Mary     " 25 f     Ohio
[Joseph & Mary's children]
Rhoda    " 60 f     Unknown
Catharine Stroup 20 f     Indiana
Rhoda is Joseph's mother, and Catharine is almost certainly Mary's sister.  They are listed next to William STROUP, who is almost certainly Mary's and Catharine's brother. In the 1860 census, Catharine STROUP is still unmarried, but living in the Huntingdon County Poor House; she is listed as "pauper, insane."
