Troup, well-known and highly respected resident of this city [Upper Sandusky, OH], who passed into the sleep of death at his home on West Wyandot avenue Tuesday [15 MAR 1937] afternoon at 1:30 o'clock after a serious illness of one week, will be held Friday afternoon at 2:30 o'clock at the First Presbyterian church.

Interment will be made in Oak Hill cemetery. Mr. Troup had been in failing health for the past several years, death being attributed to complications.

James E. Troup was born in Pitt township [Wyandot Co, OH] on April 21, 1895, the son of Charles P. and Myrte (sic) McClain Troup, the mother having preceded him in death in 1910, the father residing in this city. Mr. Troup was aged 41 years, 10 months and 25 days at the time of his demise. On June 29, 1916, he was united in marriage to Miss Edna Grundtisch, who survives with one son, Robert J. Troup, at home. One brother, Fred H. Troup, of Millburn, New Jersey; three sisters, Mrs. Gilbert Ellis and Mrs. Robert J. Hehr, of northeast of this city, and Mrs. Guy Swander, of Churubusco, Ind., and a half-sister, Miss Mildred Troup, of Wadsworth, also survive.

Mr. Troup moved to Upper Sandusky in 1929. He had taught in the schools of this county [Wyandot Co, OH] for three years and during other periods of his life had been occupied in farming and in dairy work. For the past five and a half years he had served efficiently as manager of the Square Deal Co-Op Association in this city.

Mr. Troup was confirmed in his youth in the Emanuel Evangelical and Reformed church in Pitt township and for two years served as superintendent of the church school. He was a lover of music and possessed a beautiful bass voice which will be greatly missed by the music lovers of this community. He often appeared with numerous quartets in this city. Deceased was also a member of Warpole lodge, No. 176, F. and A.M.

A devoted husband and father and always a genial friend, he gathered many friends and acquaintances into his circle, who join the bereaved family in mourning their sad and untimely loss.
