William H. Cupp was the son of Peter Cupp. He was living next to his brother John L. Cupp. Hopefully the following info will clear up some questions.

EXPLANATION: w. is an Abbreviation; C.H. for child or children; D, for deceased. Thus, "Henry--w. (1) Mary Lee, (2) Susan Dix; D; Taylor Co." means that Mary Lee was the first and Susan the second wife of a certain Henry; and that the said Henry went to Taylor county and is not now living.

Peter CUPP was of German birth and came from Frederick county Md., to the Craborchard conisderally (sic) prior to 1800. If the tradition is correct that he was unmarried when he arrived, he must have been one of our very earliest pioneers. But the tradition may refer to his oldest son Leonard, who was born in 1773, and died in 1871. Peter died about 1835, aged at least 80 years.

Children of Peter.
Leonard -w. Susan Wolfe.
William -w. - Sine.
John lw. Sarah Wilhelm.
Jacob S.
Elizabeth -w. of Peter Wilhelm.
Susannah -w. of Peter Everly.
