Susannah CUPP
NOTE:  I have no documentation connecting Susannah CUPP to either Joseph BOWMAN or Jefferson BOWMAN.  The connection is based entirely on secondary sources.
Partner(?):  Joseph BOWMAN
Partner(?):  Susannah CUPP
Birth:  1811/2, Preston Co., VA [now WV]
Father:  John Peter CUPP
Mother:  Sarah B. WILHELM
1.  Jefferson CUPP, b. 1842/3, (W)VA
1.  Jefferson BOWMAN, b. 1843/4, (W)VA

Are Jefferson CUPP and Jefferson BOWMAN the same person?  Was he Susannah's illegitimate son?

John & Sarah (WILHELM) CUPP are Susan's parents.  Is the Jefferson CUPP in 1850 the Jefferson BOWMAN in 1860?  Is he Sarah's illegitimate child with Joseph BOWMAN?  Listed two households from Susan's sister, Anna Christina (CUPP) EVERLY

Again, is Jefferson BOWMAN in 1860 the Jefferson CUPP in 1850?  Christina (CUPP) EVERLEY is Susannah's sister.

Susan is fibbing about her age.  Leonard EVERLY is Susan's nephew, not her son; and the children are Leonard's, not Susan's.  They are listed next to Leonard's parents, Joseph P. EVERLY & Anna Christina CUPP, the latter of whom is Susan's sister.
