6.  Anon.  Jan 1884.  "Obituary:  Rev. J.H. Cupp." Preston County Journal, Kingwood, Preston Co., WV (scan of clipping courtesy of Jeff DeVall, who got it from Mary Craig; the beginning of the item had been cropped off before Jeff received it):
...Front Royal, Va., on January 10th, aged 59 years. The following brief sketch of his career is from the Lutheran Visitor:

Rev. Cupp was born in Augusta County, Virginia, April 6th, 1825. He entered the Preparatory Department of Pennsylvania College, Gettysburg [Adams Co., PA], in 1841, and was graduated by that institution in 1849.  For several years after his graduation, he was engaged in teaching, first at New Kingston [Cumberland Co.], Pennsylvania, and afterward in the Academy at Strasburg, [Shenandoah Co.,] Va.  During these years, he was more or less regularly devoting himself to the study of Theology, and in 1855 was licensed to preach the Gospel by the Synod of Virginia, within whose bounds he spent nearly the whole of his ministerial life.  In 1855-56, he was pastor of the church in Des Moines, Iowa, and also Prof. of Latin and Greek in Central College.  After that he served the church at West Union, [Preston? Co.,] W.Va., Sandy Run, S.C., West Union (2nd Term), Brandonville [Preston Co.] and New Haven, [Mason Co.,] W.Va.

In 1821 (sic 1851) Rev. Cupp was married to Miss Elizabeth Henry, of Strasburg, Va., who, with four sons and a daughter, survives him.  He was buried at Strasburg on Friday, January 11th, the funeral service being conducted by Revs. L.L. Smith and D.M. Gilbert.  The sermon on the occasion was preached by the latter on the text (Matt. 28:6), "Come see the place where the Lord lay."

For several years past Mr. Cupp had been incapacited for the work of the ministry by paralysis, and, during the last year in particular, had been so enfeebled, physically, that the tidings of his death would at no time have occasioned much surprise amongst those acquainted with his condition.  He suffered much in the last years of his life, but was sustained under all trial by an unfaltering trust in Him whom he had loved and served.
