Jacob CUPP, Sr.
Ms. __?__
WARNING:  This Jacob is said to be the one from Northampton Co., PA, but I have no idea whether this is correct.  I also have no proof of the identity of his children, and the only ones asserted by secondary sources are David and Jacob, Jr..  I have connected George based on his age and proximity to our subject in the censuses.  It certainly does seem that Jacob is living with George in 1840, after his wife died.
Husband:  Jacob CUPP / COUPE / KOPP / COPPES
Birth said to be:  ca. 1756, Northampton [now Lehigh] Co., PA
Birth according to 1830 census:  1760-70, but nearer 1760
Birth according to 1840 census:  1750-60, which may be inflated
Death apparently:  1840-50, Blount Co., TN
Wife:  Ms. __?__
Birth:  1760-70, but nearer 1760
Death apparently:  1830-40, Blount Co., TN
?  (Son) CUPP, b. bef. 1774
David CUPP, b. 30 Oct 1777, Northumberland Co., PA
.  (Daughter A) CUPP, b. bef. 1790
.  (Daughter B) CUPP, b. bef. 1790
Jacob CUPP, Jr., b. 1799/1800, TN
George CUPP, b. 1800-1810, but closer to 1800

1774-1800 is a span of 26 years, which is 3 years longer than the usual maximum span of fecundity for a woman of 23 years (i.e., age 20 to 43).  Either the male over age 16 in the 1790 census is not a son, or Jacob had a second, younger wife, or this woman married very young and had an extraordinary span of fecundity.
