I just joined myheritage and noticed 31 family trees when I put in the name John Cuppett. I was looking for the John Cuppet born Dec. 4, 1774 who married susannah Spahr. It looks like most people think the father of John Cuppett is Daniel Cuppy which was an old family tradition. The father is Daniel but not Daniel Cuppy. Daniel Cuppy died in 1793 at the age of 27 unmarried. See Draper's manuscript Series S Vol 9 regarding Draper's interview with John Cuppy II.
