Kelly, my maiden name was Cupples also. My grandfather was David Leslie Cupples, b. 1856 in Yarry Duff, Ballymoney,Co. Antrim, though the family was living in New Jersey USA by that time. His parents were John Cupples(b. 1810) and Mary Ann Leslie of Co. Antrim. John was one of 11 ch. including sons Samuel b. 1896, William b. 1803, James b. 1808, David b. 1806, Thomas b. 1811, Robert b. 1797, Patrick b. 1815 and Hsamilton b. 1813. I have not been able to trace many of these men. John's father was David b. 1771, one of 4 brothers Smith, Joseph and John, but do not know the parents names. If any of this seems interesting, please contact me.
