7a.  Obit.  The Shelby Democrat, Thursday, 15 Apr 1897, p. 3 (online at the Shelby County INGenWeb site; contributed by Barb Huff):
Peter Stroup died at the residence of his son, James Stroup, in West Hendricks township, at four p.m. Thursday, April 8, 1897, of dropsy, aged seventy-one years.  The remains were buried Saturday April 10.  Services at the Second Mount Pleasant church at 10:30 a.m.  Interment in the Mount Pleasant cemetery, D. B. Wilson & Son funeral directors.
Given that Peter is living with his son, rather than his wife, it's reasonably safe to assume that Mary predeceased him.

7b.  Obit.  The Shelbyville Republican, Saturday, 25 Jan 1919, p. 1 (online at the Shelby County INGenWeb site; contributed by Barb Huff):
Died Early Saturday Morning After Long Illness

Mr. Stroup was a son of Peter and Mary Strope.  He leaves one sister, Mrs. Sarah Vawters, of Rochester, Indiana.  John Stroup, of Hendricks township, is a nephew.  Funeral arrangements will be announced later by Stewart & Fix.
