The family of this name originated in Holland, the emigrant founder being George Stroup, who came over during the latter part of the eighteenth century.  Locating first in Pennsylvania, he and his family came about 1827


to Montgomery county, Ohio.  His son, Reuben, who was born in Berks county, Pennsylvania, came west with his parents and remained in Ohio about fifteen years.  He married Mary Ann Hahn, a native of Shenandoah county, Virginia, and daughter of Samuel and Margaret Catherine (Stover) Hahn, a family of some distinction.  Mrs. Hahn's father was Captain Joseph Stover, who earned his rank as a Virginia soldier in the Revolutionary war.  John Hahn, father of Samuel, also enlisted from Virginia in a patriot regiment.  Until recent years Captain Stover's military cap, which he wore in the Revolutionary army, was a prized relic in the Stroup family.  The Hahns came to Preble county, Ohio, adjoining Montgomery county, about 1825, and their daughter, Mary Ann, was a young girl in the family at that time, her marriage occurring in 1841Reuben Stroup and his wife came to Shelby county in 1842 and settled on eighty acres of land purchased from the government in Liberty township.  It was situated on the Michigan road, at that time the great thoroughfare between the East and the West.  Conn's creek flowing through the place and affording an abundance of water for the stock.  To Reuben and Mary Ann (Hahn) Stroup six children were born, and all except Lucinda, who died when six years old, are still living.  Their names are: David P., George A., W.L., Margaret C., and Samuel.  The father died August 29, 1852, in Preble county, Ohio, and in 1860 his widow married Daniel Cotterman, an old school mate, by whom she had one son, Elmer C.  After marriage they removed to Wayne county, remained there until 1870, and then returned to the old Shelby county home. Daniel Cotterman died August 29, 1877, and his wife on November 6, 1906...
