1830 PA Somerset Co. Somerset Twp. p. 93 Ln. 18 John Cupp 100 020 - 010 010
These data indicate:
No. & Sex  Age Class Therefore Born Individuals Inferred
1 male 4 or under 1825-1830 = Eli (b. 1828/9)
2 males 20-29 1800-1810 = John (b. 1802-5)
= Conrad
1 female 5-9 1820-1825 = Daughter? Niece?
1 female 20-29 1800-1810 = Elizabeth (b. 1808)
Conrad is John's brother.  Conrad is missing from their parents' household, so he is probably the male living with John.

Name Deathdate Age at Death Result
John CUPP 17 Nov 1868 20d 11m 65y 28 Nov 1802

(Calculated birthdates should always be prefaced with "ca." you can't be certain the person who calculated their age did it correctly.)
The accuracy of these dates depends, of course, on the accuracy of the reading of their tombstones (and the accuracy of the transcription posted online).
