I don't have anything on Philip -- in fact, I didn't know Philip existed, but I wonder if you meant that Philip STROUP was born in 1852 and died in 1853, not 1953? I have Israel & Eve STROUP in the 1860 census of Susquehanna Twp., Juniata Co., PA (p. 796):

Israel STROUP 26 M Farmer 700 460 Pa
Eve STROUP 21 F Pa
Mary L STROUP 1 F Pa
Jacob COPE 12 M Pa

They show no son, Philip, and Eve is very young to have birthed a son in 1852. I wonder if Israel may have had an earlier wife, though even he is a bit young to have had a son in 1852. May I ask what is your source connecting Philip to Israel & Eve? Or that Eve's maiden name is ROUCH? Could she have been a ROUSH?

In the 1860 census, Israel & Eve are listed just two households from Israel's parents, Michael & Eve (__?__) STRAUB/STROUB/STROUP. In the 1850 census, Israel STROUP was living with his parents in Greenwood [now Susquehanna] Twp., Juniata Co., PA (p. 312). In the 1870 census, Israel is back living with his parents again (in Susquehanna Twp., Juniata Co., PA, p. 465B), which I have taken to mean his wife died and that, possibly, a "Kate" STROUP (age 28) in the household may be his new wife, but this 1870 record is difficult to interpret on several counts.

Anything you can add would be helpful.
