    1. [CUPP] Robert Cupp story, Carter Co TN
    2. Does anyone know which line he hooks up to? ~ Claudia Carson, descendant of David & Kitty Neiman Cupp, Blount Co TN _http://www.starhq.com/news/html/news/articles/articles.asp?day=Monday&artic le=nw-onthewall-cupp.html_ (http://www.starhq.com/news/html/news/articles/articles.asp?day=Monday&article=nw-onthewall-cupp.html) Robert Cupp served in U.S. Army with Cold War missile program Photo Contributed Robert Cupp, right, is shown with Jim Gannon, left, Gary Hilling, second from left, and Don Burge, third from left, before they leave on a deep-sea fishing expedition from Cape May. N.J., during R&R. By Greg Miller >From Staff Reports Judge Robert Cupp worked with the Nike Hercules Missile program during the Cold War. Cupp served with the U.S. Army Air Defenses, 24th Artillery Group, Battery B, Third Missile Battalion. He graduated from Sullivan High School in 1957. "Like so many kids, I just had a high school education," Cupp recalled. "The best job I could find was in construction, making $1 an hour. I worked for about a year in construction from 1957-58. I couldn't get a job, and the reason I couldn't get a job was because of the draft. The draft was in place at that point." The looming draft affected his employment opportunities by scaring potential employers. "People would say, 'We just can't hire you, because when we hire and train you, they're going to come and get you, so it's not going to do us any good,'" Cupp explained. After graduation, Cupp saw one of his friends at a high school basketball game. "I said, 'Let's join the Army,'" Cupp recalled. The following day, Cupp and his friend, who had joined the Tennessee National Guard, went to see the Army recruiter, who told them they could have their choice of jobs. "The Cold War was going on during that period," Cupp said. "He said, 'I would recommend that you get into something like radar. We've got these new missile programs going on now. They've set up all these defense sites around major cities in the United States. This way, you can stay stateside, choose where you want to go, and we'll train you in a field that you can really use when you get back out of the military.'" Cupp noted that they were allowed to choose from three possible sites. "The last city I picked was Philadelphia," he remarked. After basic training at Fort Jackson, S.C., they were sent to Philadelphia. "It was out in the country, out in the boondocks, a beautiful area up in the upper part of Philadelphia in Bucks County, in that very exclusive section of Philadelphia," Cupp recalled. "We were out in the fields," he added. "We were doing radar. That's what I was trained to do. With that radar, we could lock onto enemy missiles. About a half mile from us, there were nuclear warheads, and they were down in the ground. The pits that they were in are still there." Cupp's job was very important. "At that time, during the Cold War, they truly thought that Russia could possibly attack us, or Red China could possibly attack us, so they set up all these missile sites in every major town in the United States, plus in places like Germany," he said. While in the Army, Cupp went to White Sands, N.M., for annual training. "The military would send up aircraft, the little R-Cats, where they could control them," he said. "We would lock in on them with the radar and we would shoot the missiles, without warheads on them, to see if we could get hits on them. It was an incredible system." After about 6-8 months in the Army, the fellow who was over the PX on the base, offered Cupp that job, so in addition to his radar work, he ran the PX. A PX, or post exchange, was a type of retail store operating on military installations. "I took over the PX, and I actually made three times as much money as I made with that $78 a month in the military," Cupp said. Cupp, who entered the military in 1958, was honorably discharged in 1961. He received numerous job offers and went to work for Tennessee Eastman at a starting pay rate of $1.35 per hour. Cupp says he was discharged from the Army 30 days before his scheduled departure. "I got out in May instead of June, when I was supposed to," he said. "In that 30 days, the Cuban Missile Crisis hit. (President) Kennedy extended everybody for a year. I missed that year by getting out 30 days early. If he had extended me a year, I would have stayed in the military -- there's no question about that -- probably." For Cupp, the beauty of the military "was not only the discipline that it gave me, which I needed like many young men needed, but I had the GI Bill. That GI Bill was an incredible asset, because it paid you an X number of dollars. It seems like mine was $200-$300 a month. That was a lot of money in 1961." The discipline he learned was also an important factor. "My father left my mother when I was two years of age," Cupp said. "I never saw him again until he died. It was up to my mother to raise my older sister and myself. My mother worked full time. I was left to pretty much run and do what I wanted to, and I did do that." He continued, "Something needed to settle me down like it needs to settle a lot of kids down, and the military gave me that background, the discipline. I found out early on, as soon as I got to Fort Jackson, taught me that I wasn't going to be the boss anymore, that somebody else told me what to do, and I had to listen." Cupp said he always obeyed orders during his military years. "Because of that, I benefited," he said. "I made 'Soldier of the Month' several times, got benefits from that." Eastman wanted Cupp to attend East Tennessee State University, because the company wanted him to work in a lab. "They paid for my night school, and I got through my junior year. Then I used my GI Bill, which got me through law school. That was the biggest asset to it." Cupp graduated from the University of Tennessee with a juris doctor degree. He acknowledged that the hand of God has been upon his life. "Like anybody, I wouldn't be where I was if it wasn't for God," he stated. "He's guided me all my life. He's gotten me through some rough times. There's no question about that in my mind at all. I'm where I am today because of God. There's no question about that." Cupp currently serves as Criminal Court Judge for the First Judicial District counties of Johnson, Washington, Unicoi and Carter. "If it hadn't been for the military, I don't think I would have had the discipline to do what I do now," he said. Cupp's wife, Diane, is proud of her husband's military service. "I am sure working on the Nike missile was very important to our safety," she said. Mrs. Cupp works as the Director of Juvenile Court Services, in Johnson City. She is graduate of ETSU with a bachelor's degree in social work and a master's degree in liberal arts. The couple's son, Dustin Robert, was killed in a car accident in 2007. "We keep busy¬ working with a defensive driving¬ program that was set up in his memory called Dustin's 2 Much 2 Live 4 Kombat For Life Campaign, through the Moral Kombat, Foundation for Life Principles Agency," said Mrs. Cupp. "This program is aimed at helping teens to develop good decision making skills and personal self-control to help make up for a lack of driving experience." The Cupps, who live in the Central community of Carter County, enjoy attending SEC football games, especially the University of Tennessee. "We enjoying traveling and going out west," Mrs. Cupp said. "We spend a lot of our time visiting antique shops and attending auctions." ¬

    3. Does anyone or has anyone done DNA for the cupp family? My family is reported to be illigetimate family of Tilmon Cupp b 1841.  My Great  Great Grandafther was John Mayfield b Sept 1876 to Nancy Benge in Clay Co, KY. Now there has always been the family rumor that John was Tilmon Cupp's son and yes Tilmon's will says "I leave $1. to my illigetimate son John Mayfield" but is that proof? We have 1 male that would allow us to answer that question, IF there has been Cupp DNA run.  My uncle is son of Chester Mayfield.  Chester Mayfield was the only son of Hopper Mayfield that had children.  And we know that Hopper is John Mayfield's son.  I would LOVE to be able to answer this question.  ALSO, I have documented the Cupp cemetary at my grandmother's farm on Kinkaid/Portersburg in Clay Co, KY.  There are many Cupp's there.  I have put all the censuses, b/c, d/c, military, and anything else I can find on each one of them with the cemetary photos if anyone wants it- just let me know. weschel@mvn.net

    3. Well, there is already a Cupp surname project at http://www.familytreedna.com just put Cuppin the search box. I have three surname projects there. You know a Y-DNS test will not tell you who or when it just tells you if your related. I have a very good page on explaning the tests.. http://freepages.family.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~bonsteinandgilpin If you have questions just ask.. nelda http://freepages.folklore.rootsweb.com/~bonsteinandgilpin/ ---------------------------------------- > To: CUPP@rootsweb.com > Date: Wed, 19 Aug 2009 22:00:02 +0000 > From: weschel@mvn.net > Subject: [CUPP] my cupp link > > Does anyone or has anyone done DNA for the cupp family? > My family is reported to be illigetimate family of Tilmon Cupp b 1841.
