I finally broke down, spent the money and had a 10 year search done for my great-grandfather's, Charles Herbert CUPPS's, death certificate. It arrived the other day and now I am hoping to find some new connections.
Charles Herbert Cupps was born in Pittsburgh on 12/25/1868 and died on 2/2/1928 to JOHN L. CUPPS and ANNIE MATHEWS. According to the 1880 Census, John L. Cupps was born in 1830 in PA and Annie Mathews was born in 1833 also in PA. Other siblings of Charles Cupps include John W. Cupps born in 1854 in PA, Harry Cupps born 1856 in Missouri, Frank Cupps born in 1863 also in Missouri, Charlotte Cupps born in 1873 back in PA and Lawrence Cupps born in 1877 in PA.
In the census records, Charles Cupps middle initial appears to be an "A", but that could be an "H". I have seen a message board posting on Ancestry's Cupps mailing list by a Barb Shields that states that this Annie Cupps is Annie or Anna Mathews, so I believe this to be the right family. I posted a reply to that message from May of 2000, but haven't seen a reply. If anyone knows where to find Barb, please let me know.
Thanks for any and all leads on these new branches of my family.
