I cannot find William in the 1850 census, not with surname STROUP (or variation).  Has he been adopted?  Is he William GILSTRAP?

Margaret appears to be fibbing about her age.  I have no explanation for the ordering of the children.  It's a near certainty that William is boarding with Margaret, but the sexism of the enumerator does not allow him to make a female the head-of-household.
