Rudolph Cupp 20 M Labourer   "
Peter's wife is Rosa HOOVER.  It's too bad Rudolph wasn't living with his parents in 1850 because we lost our best shot at identifying them.  Listed next to David HOOVER, who is living next door to William HOOVER, who is living next door to Catharine HOOVER, who is living next door to David HOOVER, who is living next door to Abraham HOOVER, in one direction; and, in the other direction, living next door to George HOOVER, who is living next door to Philip HOOVER, who is living next door to Daniel HOOVER, who is two doors down from Jacob HOOVER.  No wonder Rudolph ended up marrying a HOOVER!  There are two young Catharine HOOVERs in the neighborhood:  his next door neighbor, David HOOVER, has a daughter, Catharine, who is 10 yrs old; and Jacob HOOVER has a daughter, Catharine, who is 13 yrs old.
