John L. CUPP
Mary WILHELM
Husband:  John L. CUPP
Birth:  1805/6, Preston Co., VA [now WV]
Death:  1880
Occupation:  farmer
Father:  Capt. Peter Leonard CUPP
Mother:  Susanna B. "Susan" WOLFE
Marriage:
Wife:  Mary WILHELM
Birth:  1811/2, VA [presumably now WV]
Occupation:  homemaker
Children born in VA [presumably now WV]:
1.  (Son A) CUPP, b. 1835-40; d. by 1850
2.  Solomon CUPP, b. 1838/9
3.  Amanda CUPP, b. 1840/1
4.  Sarah C. CUPP, b. 1843/4
5.  Martin CUPP, b. 1846/7
6.  Eve CUPP, b. 1847/8/9 

Our subjects are said to have a son, John W. CUPP, b. 1840, who married Christine RINGER.  While a son that age does appear with our subjects in the 1840 census, no such son appears with our subjects in the 1850 census (or 1860 census), so I don't see how he can be their son.

Leonard is, of course, John's father.  They are living five doors down from the Harrison HAGEN family, with whom is living a Jane CUPP (æ 20, b. VA, unmarried servant).  She doesn't appear to be John & Mary's daughter, but she is undoubtedly kin of some sort.
