I was looking through my computer files and found this:
Estate papers for Solomon Stroupe, died November 1864.Case still active in 1882 with add published in NC Citizen
Widow Caroline Miller Stroupe
Heirs at Law:

Whitaker) Jane, Martha C King, Nancy L, Malinda L & George W Whitaker Jane Creaseman wife of DH
Samuel & Levi are probably sons of David & Margaret or at least grandsons.
I do not remember finding the resolution of this estate.I am a descendant of William & Malinda Stroupe Redman.They were also involved in the estate of William's father Daniel Morgan Redman who died after 1880.
