I have been working on this family for many years and I am a 2nd great granddaughter of Stephen and Elizabeth through their daughter Malinda( Jane, Jenny, Linda). I have the same problem with the marriage date of Alexander and Sarah Jane Stroud. I have searched every way I know for a possible first marriage for either of them and have never found anything.
I have done a lot of research in Crawford Co.,Floyd Co., and Clark Co. but, so many records are missing. I do have Stephen's will and all the children are named. I also have other info on this family.
Please contact me and let's see if we can clear this up.
