Ransom's mother's birthplace, as given here, is an important piece of evidence supporting that Ransom's mother was Sibby (BREEDING) CUPP, not Abby CUPP, because Sibby was born in NC and Abby was born in VA.  On the other hand, Ransom's father was born in PA, and he got that wrong, so Ransom may not be a reliable source for his parents' birthplaces.
