Our subject bought land in 1754 in Augusta Co., VA (then adjacent to Frederick County), so I wonder if the children really were born in Frederick County.

3a.  Virginia Land, Marriage and Probate Records (Broderbund CD #513):
Name: Wm Stroup
Date: Feb 2, 1754
Location: Augusta Co., VA
Descripton: Grantee
Book-Page: 6-105
Property: 124 acres on Puck Creek of New River
Remarks: Patented 22 Aug 1753
  This land record was originally published in "Chronicles of the Scotch-Irish Settlement in Virginia, 1745-1800. Extracted from the Original Court Records of Augusta County" by Lyman Chalkley
The only other William STROUP known to be in the U.S. at the time was Johann Wilhelm STRAUB / STROUP in New York, so surely this one is our subject.  (In 1754, Augusta and Fredrick Cos. were adjacent.)
