CUP, CUPP, ROBINSON
posted by JoAnn Cupp on Tuesday, November 4,
William H. CUPP (or CUP ) b. ca 1853 in Preston Co was enumerated
with John W and Mary ROBINSON in the 1870 Taylor Co census at age
18.Other children of ROBINSON family listed are: Susan age 20, Chapin
D. age 18, Rosanna age 3, and Joseph A. age 1. Does anyone know Mary's
maiden name? Why was William CUP in this family? Since he was in
a different family in 1860, perhaps the ROBINSON family is in some
way related. Are there any researchers familiar with this family?

I have information relating to a much earlier query about Elmer Alexander
and Bessie Elizabeth SKINNER . Elmer had 1 older brother (Bert

Harrison DAVIS , and Nina Ethel DAVIS ). Elmer was born on

DAVIS and Nancy Elizabeth CRAGO . Alexander was born 6 Sept.
1860 and died 7 Sept. 1941. His parents were Anna and Adam DAVIS
Nancy was born 5 Apr. 1863 and died 22 Mar. 1932. Her parents were Thomas
Crago and Mary J. Fisher. Alexander and Nancy were married in Ripley, Jackson

Elmer Davis will contact me because I am a descendent of Mary Ann
