John COUP - Bloom Twp 1875 Described in HH Hardesty's "Historical Atlas of the World..." as having SIX children, William, Sarah A, Joseph, John, Frederick and Eliza A. In a paragraph about Joseph COUP in the same volume John is described as being the father of EIGHT children, Mary E, William, Joseph, Sarah, John, Louisa, Frederick and Eliza. Does the descrepency indicate that Mary E and Louisa had died by 1875? Does anyone have an interest in or knowledge of this family? HH Hardesty describe John as Dr John Coup which is news to me but that is another query.
