Ohio Land Patent to William STROUP in 1835
Source:  These certificates are available online from the Bureau of Land Management.  Handwritten portions are in italics, the rest was preprinted; boldface added.

Who is this William STROUP?  I can't place him.  There were no STRAUB/STROUP in the 1830 census of Coshocton County, and no William STROUP there in the 1840 census.

Certificate No. 4427.
