I believe Soloman Stroupe listed below was the son of David(4) & Margaret Inglefinger.He died in 1865 and left an estate which included an number of people, including his nephew David Miller.I have followed Soloman in the census ( I am missing the 1850) and I believe he probably had no children.The people listed in the estate are most likely his siblings.I was told my Malinda Stroup Redman might be his daughter, but their age is too close and with no children listed I doubt Soloman is Malinda Stroup Redman's father.So I think Levi is probably a son of David who I know had a son named Samuel A Stroup. I am not sure who Samuel A married and if he had children.It is my understanding that Samuel F Stroup who married Sarah L. is the son of Elizabeth Stroup (daughter of David & Margaret).There is another Samuel Stroup br circa 1820 (married Malinda) who is listed as David & Margaret's son along with a David br circa 1809 (married Mary/Polly). I am not sure about these two.
Soloman Stroupe's estate papers listed the following people who bought something & listed in the inventory of his estate on 17 March 1865: J.E. Patton John Burgin T.C. Westate LI Hemby Peter Harper David Bates David Stroupe A Burgin W. G. Morrison L Penland Lewis Ingram JP Wilson WF Davidson Asa Hall Wm Stepp JT Pickens John E. Young Susan Hall Jac Redman
