Comments:

 If Aaron was born in Ohio ca. 1834/5 and married in Ohio ca. 1858/9, we ought to be able to find him living somewhere in Ohio in the 1850 Census, either as a child living with his parents or as an orphan living with kin or on his own (he would have been 14 to 16 years old).  In the entire AIS database, there are only two MINSTs in Ohio:  Henkiel MINST in Pike Co. in 1850 and Aaron MINST in Van Wert Co. in 1860.  There are only four MERISes in Ohio in the entire AIS database:  Davis MERIS in Belmont Co., OH, in 1820; Sarah MERIS in Muskingum Co., OH, in 1820; John MERIS in Morgan Co., OH, in 1850; and Michael MERIS in Ridge Twp., Van Wert Co., OH, in 1860.

Aaron's surname is difficult to read, but I agree with the AIS indexer that it looks like MINST.  Augustus CUPP is Mary's brother.
