Hard to say who the other adult female is; she could be kin or hired help.  The only other CUPP (or var.) in Milford Twp. is Adam CAP.

Where is John?  He doesn't show up in the census on his own until 1830.  Do we have the wrong birthyear for one of the girls?  Or is this enumerator error?  Frederick is the only CUPP (or var.) in Somerset Twp.

John is on his own and either Conrad or Jacob is living with him, but where is the other one?  And where is Thomas?  Thomas doesn't show up in the census on his own until 1850.  Frederick is the only CUPP (or var.) in Milford Twp.  The list is roughly alphabetical, so no neighborhood reconstruction is possible.
