1.  Missouri Marriage Records.  Missouri State Archives (microfilm), Jefferson City, MO (online at Ancestry.com):
Miliard W Cuff Isabele W Pond 8 Jul 1877 Grundy County

2.  1860 Census Every-Name-Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com):--Millard CUPP (æ 4, b. KY) is living in Mason Co., KY, with his parents (q.v.).  Isabelle not found, so her age is probably correct in 1870, but incorrect in 1880.  Perhaps she later lied about her age, so she could get married without her parents' permission.

3.  1870 Census Every-Name-Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com):--Millard W. CUPP (æ 13, b. KY) is living in Grundy Co., MO, with his parents (q.v.).  Isabella POND (æ 9, b. MO) is living in Trenton Twp., Grundy Co., MO (p. 399B), with her parents, Warren POND (æ 60, b. IN) & Lucinda (æ 45, b. IN), plus siblings.  This record opens a can of worms I don't care to resolve.  Warren Sherman POND (1806-1891) is said to have married first to Lucinda McCLURE (1808-1839) on 2 Apr 1828 in Franklin Co., IN.  Warren is said to have married second on 3 May 1840 in Franklin Co., IN, to Emily FEWEL (1823-1885).  The hitch is that Warren's wife in the 1870 census is "Lucinda."  In the 1860 census, she is "Amelia," and in the 1880 census, she is "Emily."

6.  1900 Census Every-Name-Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com):  can't find Isabelle.  If she's alive, she has probably remarried.  There are no CUPPs in Grundy Co., MO, except Millard's widowed mother and an unmarried sister.

It appears the stone has been mis-read because, in the censuses, he is clearly Millard, and she is clearly Isabelle W. POND.  The notes on these readings don't necessarily indicate the information was on the stone; some is added by the compilers, often erroneously, which is a good reason to always record data verbatim, without adding to it.
