Hello there--it appears that we may be searching for the same Joseph Cupples. My husband's family has done some research on their family history. Their great grandfather was James F Cupples who was married to Mary McElfresh in Va on April 21, 1862. We know that his parents were Joseph Esther Cupples and that they lived in Allegheny Co. Pa. Do you have any info on Joseph's children?? Is it possible that we might have a match?? Please contact me at the above e-mail.
