Cupp Susan 59 F W with Everly     Virginia
Margaret is very young to be the biological mother of these two children, especially the older one.  Given Margaret's youth and the age difference between her and Leonard, it's probable that Leonard had a prior wife. Susan CUPP is Leonard's aunt.

Leonard is not Susan CUPP's son, he's her nephew; and the children are Leonard's, not Susan's.  They are listed next to Leonard's parents, Joseph P. EVERLY & Anna Christina CUPP, the latter of whom is Susan CUPP's sister.  Oddly, Leonard & Margaret are tallied as being both single and married!
