William CUPP
Ms. __?__
Margaret GABLE
Husband:  William CUPP
Birth:  1829/30/31, GA
Occupation:  farmer 

William's parents are said to be John CUPP & Sarah WILHELM, but John was born, lived, and died in Preston Co., (W)VA, so it's impossible for him to have had a son born in Georgia.  John & Sarah did have a son William, but this William was born in 1819/20, ten years earlier than our subject, and he married Mary BURKE.

1.  Marriage Record:

2a.  Census Index:  U.S. Selected Counties, 1860 (Broderbund CD-318):  can't find.

2b.  1860 Census Images (online at Ancestry.com):  I went through Township 14, Calhoun Co., AL, page-by-page, and William CUPP was not found.

3.  1870 Census Images (online at Ancestry.com; Image #12 of 26):  Jacksonville P.O., Township 14, Calhoun Co., AL, p. 534A, PN 37, 263/280, enumerated 8 Aug 1870 (extracted by Diana Gale Matthiesen):
Cupp William 40 M W Farmer     Ga
     Margaret 30 F W Wife     Ala
     Nancy 10 F W At School     "
     Becky  8 F W At School     "
     H E 13 M W At School     "
The ordering of the children indicates that William had a former wife and that H.E. is her son.  Given the age disparity between William and Margaret, we would expect that he had a former wife, who would then be Henry's mother.  It also makes Margaret a more reasonable age 19 when she married William, instead of age 16, which she would have been if she were Henry's mother.

5.  WorldConnect / Ancestry World Trees (online at RootsWeb.com/Ancestry.com).  Has William the son of John Peter CUPP & Sarah WILHELM, which cannot possibly be correct because their son was born in 1819/20 in Virginia.
