Take a look at the 1860 TX census for Bastrop Co and compare the actual page with the transcribed data below furnished by a volunteer to the USGenweb county page:
-------------------------------------
42...363\326 Highsmith, M. B. 32 m Farmer MO
363\326 Highsmith, Francis E 28 f VA
---------------------------------------
42...364\327 *Cupee, Sousan 50 f Widow VA***
364\327 *Cupa, George 16 m MO
364\327 Tormos, Francis E 11 f TX
364\327 Townsend, James 45 m Carpenter TN
364\327 Townsend, Sarah 6 f TX
-------------------------------------
42...365\328 Highsmith, Terressa 49 f Widow MO
365\328 Highsmith, Henry A 17 m TX
365\328 Highsmith, E. W. N. 12 m TX
42...365\328 Tumlinson, Sarah 27 f Widow MO
365\328 Tumlinson, T. Ann 4 f TX
--------------------------------------
*NOTE: Spelling of CUPEE and the CUPA listings which may be transcribed incorrectly or written into the official records phonetically by a tin-ear official.<G>

Thus your COUPEE may be the same invariable spelling as much as the CUPEE and CUPA considering these individuals were living between HIGHSMITH households in this particular census.

Well this is enough muddy water to think about for awhile. After you and your fellow researchers look into this theory please let this old dog know what you have decided.

Good luck with your research.


=================
I have been poking around a few census sources and I thought you might get a ~tickle~ from what I found. There is so much disparity between sources.
