"Sons" A and B could be James and Preston, as found in the 1850 census; then again, without them, there is a nine year gap with no children, so an additional two sons makes more sense.  List is roughly alphabetized, so no neighborhood reconstruction is possible.  Also, for reasons known only to the microfilmer, the page spreads were photographed in reverse order.  Because only the front sides of the pages (the ones with the data, but no names) have page numbers, the consequence of being photographed in reverse order is that it's difficult to be specific as to the page number where a name is found.

WILLIAM CUPP, retired farmer, Tiffin, was born May 7, 1808, in Augusta County, Va., son of Valentine and Mary (Fall) Cupp, of German descent.  Valentine Cupp was twice married and had nine children, of whom six survive, two David and William being residents of Ohio.  Our subject was brought to Fairfield County, Ohio, by his parents in 1808, his father carrying him in front of him on his horse most of the way.  They settled in Walnut Township, Fairfield Co., Ohio, where the father purchased a farm on which he passed the remainder of his life.  Our subject was educated in Fairfield County and was there united in marriage with Miss Catharine Fall (a second cousin), by whom he had three children: Mary A., now the widow of Joel Keller (has two children); Elizabeth C., wife of William Orme (have four children); and George W., married to Lucy Fisher; they reside in Tiffin and have one child living.  Mr. Cupp bought a fine farm in this county, and moved here in 1865.  Retiring from same in 1877, he came to Tiffin, where he now lives, having bought a fine property on Market Street.  He has been a successful farmer, and is a fine gentleman. He is a member of the first Reformed Church, of Tiffin. Col. Valentine Cupp, of the First Ohio Volunteer Cavalry, a brother of our subject, was killed at the battle of Chickamauga in September, 1863.

Valentine is on the 1807 tax list of Fairfield Co., OH.
