2.  1850 Census Every-Name-Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com, Image #45 of 48 indexed "Strouss"):  Tuscarawas Twp., Stark Co., OH, Roll M432_731, p. 189B, 324/329, enumerated 16 Sep 1850, official enumeration date 1 Jun 1850 (extracted by Diana Gale Matthiesen):¤
Joseph Stroup 30 M   Laborer   O
Cath      " 29 F       "
David     "  7 M       "
Henry     "  5 M       "
Charlotte Bullinger 20 F       "
If Catharine was the informant, she may have elevated Joseph's age so as not to appear younger than he was (n.b, in the 1900 census, she gives her birthyear as 1822).  Charlotte is Catharine's sister. 

3.  1860 Census Every-Name-Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com, Image #6-7 of 35):  Burr Oak P.O., Bronson, Branch Co., MI, Roll M653_538, p. 588-589, PN 6-7, 43/44, enumerated 2 Jun 1860, official enumeration date 1 Jun 1860 (extracted by Diana Gale Matthiesen):¤

[next page]
Catherine Stroup 33 F         Maryland
David       " 15 M         Ohio
Henry       " 13 M         Ohio
Either Catherine's age was wrong in 1850 or it's wrong here, but for a woman, the age that makes her older is usually the correct one.

4.  1870 Census Every-Name-Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com, Image #50 of 70):  Bourbon P.O., Bourbon Corporation, Marshall Co., IN, Roll M593_342, p. 25B, PN 2, 10/10, enumerated 3 Aug 1870, official enumeration date 1 Jun 1870 (extracted by Diana Gale Matthiesen):

Rinegar William  8 M W       Ind
McCabe John 27 M W Day Laborer     Mich

5.  1880 Census Every-Name-Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com, Image #1 of 35):  West Twp., Marshall Co., IN, Roll T9_297, p. 166A, PN 1, SD 5, ED 107, enumerated 1 Jun 1880, official enumeration date 1 Jun 1880 (extracted by Diana Gale Matthiesen):

Either Mary's age is wrong here or it was wrong in 1870, and the age that makes her older is almost certainly the correct one.  William RINEGAR-STROUP appears to have been adopted.
