B. S. Stroud, a prominent citizen of Manchester, and register of Coffee County, was born in Warren County, Tennessee, February 14, 1854. He is the son of B. S. and Nancy (Winton) Stroud, the former born in 1825 in Warren County, and the latter February 2, 1826, in Coffee County. Their deaths occurred October 12, 1853, and June 4, 1869, respectively. After their marriage, about 1844, the elder Stroud was farming and shipping and trading in livestock. He was politically a Whig.

Our subject, one of four children, was educated at Manchester College, under Rev. W. D. Carnes. After four years’ prospecting in Texas and Arkansas, he returned to Manchester and engaged in the printing business, and soon bought a half interest in the Manchester Guardians. In the fall of 1878 he was made deputy clerk of chancery court, Coffee County. A year later, finishing an unexpired term of register, he was afterward elected to the office, serving two terms. December 17, 1879, he was married to Fannie Powers, born September 13, 1860, in Manchester, and educated at the college there. Their son, Horace, was born March 20, 1881. Mr. Stroud is a democrat.
