CUP, CUPP, ROBINSON posted by JoAnn Cupp on Tuesday, November 4, 1997

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?
