I am interested in the branch of the Cuppage family that settled in Ireland.Seems that Thomas Cuppage bought land in Philadelphia and possibly Deleware fromWilliam Penn along with a Joshua Gee, aprominent London merchant (Quaker)The Cuppage family of co. Wexford was related to the Strettell family (see Strettle on this forum) through marriage and also indirectly to the Hillary family.The Strettells hadpurchased approx 5,000 acres in Pennsylvania and the Hillaries about 1,000.If interestedplease see the information on the cuppage family in the macaulay forum.Any information as to what happened to this family in the U.S. would be greatly appreciated.Thanks, Paul
