I am searching for my father, Delbert Hadon Cuppy's biological father.His name was Jackson L. Clark.He moved to Arkansas after his first wife, Anna Pierce, died in a tragic fire in Arcola, IL. They had five children at the time of her death.Bessie, Bertha, James Ermal, Iva and (Delbert)Hadon, who was much later adopted by H.W. and Lorena Mulliken Cuppy.After the death of their mother the children were "farmed" out to relatives and friends.My father had searched for his father for some time and finally gave up.He did know that he moved to Arkansas in January of 1905, remarried and had 10 more children.I believe he may have been married twice and had 5 children by each wife.One wife's name may have been Maggie L.He may have had children Ernest, Katherine, Letha, Jenna, Jewel by that marriage.A second wife may have been Fannie.Children, Dan, Clarence, Ethel and James Moser.They were believed to live in or near Poinsett Co. or Harrisburg.I am also researching CUPPY,MULLIKEN, CARTER, HUBBARD, THOMPSON and FERGUSON.I would love to hear from anyone who might have information about any of these people.
Thank you very much.My full maiden name was Mary Joanne Cuppy
