William CUPP
PLEASE NOTE:  a patrilineal line male descendant of our subject has been tested for the CUPP Y-DNA Surname Project based at FamilyTreeDNA.  If you believe you descend from our subject and would like to support your paper connection with DNA evidence, please consider joining the project and being tested.  Also, there is circumstantial evidence to suggest that our subject belongs to the same family as the other CUPPs who came from Kentucky to Franklin Co., IN.  If you are a decendant of our subject and would like to find out whether our subject is a member of this family, then you need to find and test a male CUPP descended on a patrilineal line from Jacob KOPP/CUPP (c1750-1810s) of Berks Co., PA, and Mason Co., KY.  A tight Y-DNA match would be solid evidence for a connection.
