STROUP - Daily Tribune, Johnstown, PA November 23, 1911, Thursday Evening MRS. DAN'L STROUP DIES SUDDENLY -------------------------------- First Ward Octogenarian Passes Away After Only a Few Hours' Illness -------------------------------- WAS LAST OF HER FAMILY -------------------------------- Paralysis caused the death of Mrs. Catherine Stroup, relict of Daniel Stroup, at the Stroup homestead, No. 421 Vine street, between 12 and 1 o'clock this afternoon. She was in her 86th year. Mr. [sic] Stroup's health had not been good since last spring, although she was able to be about her home until last evening. She was stricken with paralysis about 3 o'clock this morning, and suffered a second attack a few hours later. The funeral arrangements will be announced tomorrow. Services will be held at the Stroup homestead either on Saturday or Sunday. Catherine (STEINER) STROUP was born in Germantown, Philadelphia, in March, 1826, being a daughter of John and Sarah Ann (LICHTELS) STEINER. She was one of a family of eight children, and is the last of the number to pass away. One of her brothers, Frederick Steiner, died last June at the home of his granddaughter, Mrs. Curtis F. Schrader, in the First Ward. Miss Catherine Steiner and Daniel Stroup were married about the time of the Mexican War, coming to Johnstown in 1851. Mr. Stroup began work here at the old Rhey furnace opposite the P.R.R. passenger station and later became an employee of the Cambria Iron Company. He was a bricklayer by occupation and helped to build the old stack in 1852. Mr. Stroup continued with the local concern until the time of his death in April, 1890. Eight children, seven boys and a daughter, were born to Mr. and Mrs. Stroup. George and Millard Fillmore died in infancy, Miss Sarah Stroup died in October, 1890 [sic], and John passed away in Moxham four years ago. The surviving sons are Daniel and James Stroup, of Braddock; Sherman, of Swissvale, and Charles H., of Union street, this city [Johnstown]. Besides these, she is survived by 21 grandchildren, and ten great-grandchildren. Nine of her grandchildren reside in Johnstown and the others are in Braddock and Swissvale. Nine of her great-grandchildren are boys and the tenth a girl. Mrs. Stroup was one of the organizers of the First United Presbyterian Church in this place, and was next to the oldest member. She was also identified with the women's missionary society connected with the church. The Stroup homestead was purchased some 50 years ago, by the late Daniel Stroup from Levi R. Cohlek, deceased, husband of Mrs. Eliza Rose Cohlek, of Somerset street, the only sister of the Hon. W. Horace ROSE. For more than 50 years Mrs. Stroup and the late Mrs. J.F. Carpenter made their home on adjoining lots. Mrs. Carpenter's death occurred last June.

STROUP - Daily Tribune, Johnstown, PA - November 24, 1911, Friday Evening  - FUNERAL OF MRS. CATHERINE STROUP - Services to Be Held at Old Homestead - in First Ward Sunday Afternoon - Rev. Robb to be in Charge - The funeral of Mrs. Daniel Stroup, sr., who died at noon yesterday, will take place from the Stroup homestead at 2:30 o'clock Sunday afternoon, when services will be conducted by her pastor, the Rev. E.E. Robb, of the First United Presbyterian Church. The pallbearers will be Daniel W. and James R. Stroup, of Braddock; Sherman Stroup, of Swissvale, and Charles H. Stroup, of this city, sons of the deceased, and Louis D. Stroup, of Moxham, and John S. Stroup of Swissvale, two grandsons. Interment will be in Grandview Cemetery.
  Daniel W. and James Stroup, and Sherman Stroup are already in the city, and the following relatives are expected this evening to remain for services: Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Chambers, Miss Vivian Stroup, Mrs. James R. Stroup, George Stroup, and the misses Ella and Bess Stroup, of Braddock; Mrs. Sherman Stroup, Earl Stroup, and Mr. and Mrs. Harry Stroup, of Swissvale; Mr. and Mrs. William Downton, of Wilkinsburg, and Mr. and Mrs. A. Hindman, of Butler.
  Four generations of the Stroup family were present at the 84th birthday anniversary of Mrs. Stroup at the old home, No. 421 Vine street, a year or so ago. The event was of special interest to the family and the aged guest of honor. The ancestors of Mrs. Stroup have aided in the making of American history.
  Mrs. Stroup's great-grandfather was a Colonel in the Revolutionary Army, and was a member of Gen.
Washington's staff. When Washington was advancing on Germantown and Philadelphia, carrying out his pronounced policy at critical moments of "none but Americans on Guard," Col. Stroup, who had been born and reared in that vicinity, was assigned to scout duty. Stationing himself on Old School Lane, now Haines street, an English Captain, a scout of Gen. Clinton, came furiously riding down the lane to advise Clinton of Washington's approach.
  Col. Stroup stepped to the middle of the road to halt him, when the Englishman drew his sword and galloped forward to ride him down, Stroup threw himself on his knee, fired his old flint-lock rifle, and the English captain fell dead, shot through the heart.
Washington surprised and drove Clinton from Germantown and compelled him to evacuate Philadelphia. The Stroup family holds deeds for land given for services in Revolutionary War time and also in the War of 1812.
  Mrs. Stroup's ancestor on the paternal side [STEINER] belonged to the German nobility. He settled in
Philadelphia in the early part of the 17th century, and was the victim of race, religious, and social prejudices, having married a Jewess. The Semitic agitation at that time in Europe was in full swing, and his family disowned him. But he and his sterling progeny in the New World survived. Mrs. Stroup had two brothers who served with distinction in the Civil War, and the male branches of her family have taken part in all struggles for the Nation's Independence and advancement.
  Mrs. Chambers and Mrs. Hindman, mentioned above, have the distinction of being the nieces of Fergus A. Cannon, of Company H 67th Pennsylvania Volunteer Infantry, the youngest volunteer soldier of the Civil War, according to war records, who actually shouldered a musket and did duty. He was not the youngest enlisted soldier, as several younger boys served as drummers. Cannon enlisted at the age of thirteen years and nine months, and served throughout the entire struggle in the ranks, being honorably discharged on
May 13, 1865.

STROUP, DANIEL, SR.  - The Daily Tribune, Johnstown, PA, Saturday, April 19, 1890. The subject of this notice, whose death is elsewhere announced, was one of the very oldest employees of the Cambria Iron Company. He was born in Germantown, Philadelphia, on October 5, 1824, and came to Johnstown in May, 1852. He was a furnace-builder by trade, and helped to lay the first brick and stone for a works which was destined to become the largest of its kind in the country. He always enjoyed good health, and was at his employment almost uninterruptedly until the day of the great flood, May 31, 1889. In that disaster he lost heavily, and was also a physical sufferer, his experience in the flood and the death of his only daughter last October bringing on nervous prostration, from the effects of which he died.
  Mr. Stroup is survived by his widow and five grown sons, three of whom, following in their father's footsteps, are employed in the masonry department of the Cambria Iron Company.
  In his younger days Mr. Stroup was an uncompromising Abolitionist. Upon the birth of the Republican party, he joined that organization, but in his latter days was independent in politics.
  He was a member of Spring Garden Lodge, No. 99, Odd Fellows, of
Philadelphia, which lodge he joined on December 25, 1845; and was a charter member of the first lodge constituted in Johnstown, of which he was a consistent member till his death, holding the most trustworthy officer in the craft. He was probably the oldest Odd Fellow in Western Pennsylvania, if not in the State. He was also a member of the Encampment Branch of Odd Fellows, and of the Kiskiminetas Tribe, No. 66, Improved Order of Red Men.
  An old member of Alma Lodge says that he has noticed that one death in the organization is invariably followed by two others. He cites as two recent instances the death first of James Gard followed quickly by Owen Davis and Cyrus Kitto. Then came the demise of Mark Drew followed by the death of John T. Jenkins and Daniel Stroup.
  Mr. Stroup was a very kind-hearted man, and his sympathies were always with the down-trodden and oppressed. He was the friend of everybody, and everybody was his friend. His death removes from our midst a familiar figure, and one which will be greatly missed, especially by the older members of the community.

STROUP - In Johnstown, at 1:25 o'clock A.M. on Saturday, April 19, 1890, Daniel Stroup, Sr., in the 66th year of his age. The funeral will take place on Monday afternoon at 3 o'clock under the auspices of the Odd Fellows.Interment in Grand View Cemetery. The Daily Tribune, Johnstown, PA., Saturday, April 19, 1890.
