9.  WorldConnect / Ancestry World Trees (online at RootsWeb.com/Ancestry.com).  There are several files containing our subject (as Thomas STROUP, not STROUPE), but none goes back further than Thomas.  They do go back further on Flossie's ancestry.

10.  Mid-Atlantic Roots Network (database online at midatlantic.rootsweb.com).  Only goes back as far as Thomas, but does have his children and their spouses and their children, which I have not given because they are presumably living persons.
