I have gone to Ireland to do research a few times.I have also paid three researchers to extract church and vital records for me.I have gotten this from church records over in Ireland.
Robert Cupples born about 1838 of Carnclinty,Rasharkin Parish married jeminah robinson born about 1838 no location given at ahoghill 2nd presbyterian church in Ahoghill,Ahoghill,Ballymena Poor law union in Co Antrim,IR. Roberts father was Robert Cupples born about 1803 most likely in Carnclinty,Rasharkin Parish,Antrim, IR Jeminah's father was Hugh Robinson born about the same time as Robert the older(1805).
There was another family in the area at the time:

There is a Robert Cupples who married a Jane of Carnclinty, Rasharkin Parish who died 6 may 1861 in Carnclinty, Rasharkin Parish, Antrim, Ireland.This Robert had a Adm of under 300 pounds sterling dated 27 may 1861 late of Carnclinty whod died 6 may 1861 and whose wife was jane cupples.The copy of the extract is at PRONI in Belfast.I copied down this about 4 years ago on a trip over there. You could check for the orriginal document??
I do not have any other individuals that lived in the area in these records, so I will check others that I have, Yes there is some more:
I just did a check and found this in Griffiths taken in 1861-64 depending on the area:
Robert Cupples 1A (The main holding in the area) had 204 acres and he leased it from John Ferguson.This robert may have been the father or the son(check the House books at PRONI to find out the answer)
David Cupples 2a (the 2nd largest holding usually) see James Reilly's book on Griffiths; Leased land from Robert to the tune of 23 acres.
