2.  1830 Census Index and Digital Images (online at Ancestry.com; Image #7 of 9; extracted by Diana Gale Matthiesen):¤
1830 OH Madison Co. Stokes Twp. p. 112 Ln. 24 Joseph Stroup 000 010 - 200 010
These data indicate:
No. & Sex  Age Class Therefore Born Individuals Inferred
1 male 20-29 1800-1810 = Joseph (b. 1796/7)
2 females 4 or under 1825-1830 = Elizabeth (b. 1829/30)
= Daughter A
1 female 20-29 1800-1810 = Jane (b. 1806/7)
Joseph is in the wrong age class, but surely this is our subjects' household.  Listed next to Joseph's father, John STROUP, Sr., who is next to Joseph's brother, David STROUP, who is next to Joseph's brother, William STROUP (n.b., the list is not alphabetized).

These data indicate:
No. & Sex Age Class Therefore Born Individuals Inferred
1 male 15-19 1820-1825 = ?
1 male 40-49 1790-1800 = Joseph (b. 1796/7)

1 female 30-39 1800-1810 = Jane (b. 1806/7)
1 person employed in agriculture
The teenage male was born before Joseph & Jane were married, so he is not their son.  Nor is he Joseph's son from a prior marriage because he's not in the household in 1830.  He may be kin or hired help.  As a farmer with six daughters and no sons, he certainly need some hired male help.  Listed four lines from Joseph's brother, David STROUP
