      John Cuppy was said to be an Indian scout in Capt. Brady's company in Gen. Wayne's army from 1790 to 1794. His daughter referred to his service as a "ranger or spy for the space of two years or upwards . . . in or about the years A.D. 1792 and 1793."

      John Cuppy's birth date and location come from his 1844 Revolutionary War pension application. The pension application states his birth date is in a family bible of his father, that was then in his possession. The marriage date of John's marriage to Lydia is given as 07 OCT 1824 in a certified copy provided to a probate judge and contained within the pension file. This document gives Lydia's last name as Russell.
