 Includes NotesNotes for Konrad Kopp:
Conrad CUPP
Husband: Conrad CUPP
Birth: 1778 or bef. 1775, PA
Death: Crawford Co., OH
Military Service: War of 1812: Pvt., Capt. Robert Reid's Co., 2nd Brigade, Denny's Rgmt., Ohio Militia
Brother believed to be: Philip CUPP
Said to be born 1778, but the census indicates earlier.

Conrad is believed to be the brother of Philip CUPP (b. 1784). The evidence, though circumstantial, largely supports this contention. The major sticking point in this scenario is that Philip is said to have been born in Germany and to have come to America as a child, with his parents. But Conrad is said to have been born in PA, which is impossible if Conrad is Philip's older brother.

Marriage said to be: 1805
Transhumance: 1824, said to have moved to Crawford Co., OH
Baptism: 28 Apr 1782
Death: Crawford Co., OH

Almost certainly, "Cupt" was a mistake in OCR. Philip and Conrad are believed to be brothers their Sergeant may have been their father-in-law.
