CUPP

Peter CUPP was of German birth and came from Frederick county Md., to the Craborchard conisderally (sic) prior to 1800.  If the tradition is correct that he was unmarried when he arrived, he must have been one of our very earliest pioneers.  But the tradition may refer to his oldest son Leonard, who was born in 1773, and died in 1871.  Peter died about 1835, aged at least 80 years.
