Section H





     Peter and Casper Hupp were apparently immigrants who came to settle

in the Shenandoah Valley.  They were probably older than Balser and the

brothers that left the valley in 1770.  Peter arrived in Philadelphia

in 1748 or 1749 and Casper in 1753.  The earliest mention I have of

either of them in the Shenandoah Valley was that Casper Hupp bought

some land in 1763 not far from New Market. 

     Compared to Balser Hupp's family, I know very little about the

families of Peter and Casper.  I think I do know all of their children's

names, though.  

     At the time Peter and Casper were still alive (they both died 

in the 1700's), the records spelled the name "Hoop" or "Hup". 





     It seems that Peter Hupp (immigration records spelled the name

"Hop") was the first member of the family to arrive in America.  He was

on the ship Elliot, which came from Rotterdam, Holland to Philadelphia,

Pennsylvania.  There is some confusion as to its arrival date (see A-6).

He may have lived in Lancaster County, Pa., as may have his brothers(?)

later.  I found a mention of a Jacob Hupp in Lancaster County, Pa.

mentioned in the Shenandoah County records (in 1786).  I have no idea

how he would fit in.  

     Peter's wife was named Magdalen, and they had three children: 

Susannah, who married Hannachel Fry; Peter, Jr.; and John.  John was

born on 5/30/1773. 

     The will of "Peter Hoop" is recorded in the Shenandoah County Will

Book A, pp. 61 and 62.  It is dated 6/8/1773, less than two weeks after

his son John was born.  The location was "Parish of Beckford".  It

states that Peter owned lots 11, 106, and 122 in Woodstock.  The house

was on lot 122, which his wife was to receive.   The other two lots

were to be sold.  His son Peter was to get his land (supposedly

elsewhere).  A book of abstracts of wills of Shenandoah County adds

that the will was proved 6/22/1773.  I do not know if this means that

he died that date, or something else.  But there is no further record

of the older Peter Hupp after that. 

     All I know of Peter's children was that Susannah married 

Hannachel Fry on 6/18/1791, Peter married Madaline Kibler on 3/23/1796,

and John married Rachel Goans on 3/30/1798.  It is not proved that these

are Peter's children, but they fit both in names and dates, and are

among the few Hupp marriages which do not fit in the other families. 

     Since Casper's and Balser's children and their families are well

enough figured, I think it most likely that all of the unconnected

families (section I) are descendants of Peter Hupp. 








     As mentioned on A-6, Casper Hop arrived at Philadelphia aboard

the Eastern Branch on 10/3/1753.  He may have lived in Pennsylvania

a few years before moving to the Shenandoah Valley.  A later deed (land

sold by Casper's son John, in 1800) states that Casper bought some land

in May of 1763 from William and Susannah Clark near what is now

Shenandoah Caverns, four miles north of New Market. 

     In A HISTORY of Shenandoah County, by John W. Wayland, Casper Hupp

is said to have been a Baptist preacher, as was one of his sons-in-law,

Anderson Moffett.  

     Casper's wife's name was Mary, and they had six children: 



Casper Hup  ( - 1781)

m. Mary --- ( - 1810)


     1. Barbara Hup (10/31/1758 - 11/9/1848) see H-3

       m. Anderson Moffett  (8/30/1746 - 5/14/1835) on 6/8/1779

     2. Elizabeth Hup 

       m. Richard Thomas  on 2/15/1788

     4. Samuel Hup (1770's - 1840's)         see H-7f

       m. Margaret Wilson  on 5/26/1796

     5. Mary Hupp (1/17/1773? - )

       m. --- Dundore

     6. Martin Hupp (9/22/1775 - 8/10/1829)  see H-11f

       m1. Clara Copp? (4/27/1781 - 10/5/1826)

       m2. Alice White Frovel 


Mary m2. Charles Taylor  on 12/3/1781

     m3. Sebastian Stegler  on 10/5/1801



     Considering the spread in ages, I think it is likely there were

several other children who died young.  

     After Casper died, his sons were placed under the guardianship of

Edwin Young, John Neff, Joseph Strickly, and Peter Funk in 1784.  When

John reached 21 (in 1787), he was given the guardianship of Samuel, and

then of Martin.

     Mary was married twice again after Casper died, as shown above.

She had her will written up 12/22/1808.  She mentions her six children

(mentioning that John had died).  The executor was Henry Greenwood, and

the witnesses were Henry Greenwood, George Black, and George Hupp (as

far as I know, this could only be her grandson, who was 16 at the time.

The will was proved 5/7/1810.  





     The information I have on the descendants of Casper's daughter

Barbara is from the HISTORY of Shenandoah County, plus a few dates

added from tombstones.

(?)VI. Isaac Moffett (1797 - 8/6/1861)



     Anderson Moffett was a Baptist preacher who preached the gospel

for 70 years.  He was a delegate from Rockingham County to Virginia's

General Assembly.  Anderson and Barbara are buried in Tenth Legion,

south of New Market. 



John Hupp, son of Casper


     After he turned 21, John became the guardian of his brothers 

Samuel and Martin.  Three years later, in 1790, he married Sarah Rader

or Reeder.  John and Sarah had two children:  George F. and Polly.  

John was involved in the education of his brother, Martin.  For more on

that see H-11.  John probably lived several different places from

Strasburg in the north to Keezletown, near Harrisonburg, in the south. 

     There has been a difference in opinion about who John's parents

were:  his descendants in Strasburg told me that he was the son of Peter

and Magdalen; I am claiming he was the son of Casper and Mary.  To state

my case, I make note that the descendants claim John was born on 

3/1/1766, while Peter's son John was born on 5/30/1773.  Also, the

Shenandoah County Deed Book M, pp. 166, 167 state that the John Hup

whose wife was Sarah was a son of Casper Hup.  Furthermore, after John

died, his children were raised by Martin Hupp, who was a son of Casper.

Sarah m2. Philip Snapp on 1/10/1810



     John and Sarah's son George F. Hupp was a very prominent citizen of

Strasburg.  He owned an estate of about 1000 acres which included Hupp

Hill and Hupp's Cave, which was later renamed Crystal Caverns.  He also

lived in a large mansion.  George F. Hupp was reportedly a paymaster in

the War of 1812.  Later he owned or part-owned three of four furnaces

where metals, mostly iron, were smelted.  In the early 1800's he was

involved in so many land deals, that I did not bother writing down

even the reference.  If anyone wants all of that information, it can

be found in the County Courthouse in Woodstock. 















                  <sketch of Hupp Mansion>













        The Hupp Mansion of Strasburg, Virginia 


     The old Hupp Mansion is just north of Strasburg on the east side

of U.S. 11.  Actually the mansion burned in the late 1800's and was

rebuilt.  The mansion was recently owned by the Balfour players group,

but I think they recently sold it.  Frank Hupp, a great-grandson of

George F. Hupp, lives across U.S. 11 in the Hupp Frontier Fort. 

     George's sons George F. Jr. and Joseph S. were soldiers for the

confederacy in the Civil War, and came home expecting to find their home

burned to the ground, as happened to many large houses.  The Shenandoah

Valley was the "breadbasket" of Virginia and it had been long defended

from Union Forces by Stonewall Jackson.  As the war drew to a close, it

was ordered that the valley be laid waste to such an extent that "if

a crow would fly over, it would need to carry its own provisions". 

But Union generals Shields and Banks made the Hupp mansion their 

headquarters, and it was not destroyed.  

     Although George F. Hupp lived to be 93, he was not very active in

trading land after the Civil War.  In fact, his wife Catherine wrote up

her will, deciding how the property was to be divided among the heirs.

Catherine died 10 years before George did.

     There were four sons of George F. Hupp, but only one, George F.

Jr., had any children.  The list of his descendants is on the next

     Back to John, George F. Hupp's father:  His estate included four

slaves (there were no slaves owned by Balser or Abraham Hupp).  The

property was sold on 12/30/1807.  Buyers included Martin Hup, Samuel

Hup, Palser Hup, Abram Hup, and Anderson Moffet.  Martin and Samuel

were John's brothers, but Balser and Abraham were more distantly

related.  This shows the different Hupp families were still close at

this time.  

     In 1800 John had sold some land to his brother Samuel (Deed Book

M, pp 167,168) which was north of New Market.  It was an irregular 

shaped tract that was two miles long.  It ran northwest from the North

Fork of the Shenandoah River and included the present day interchange 68

on Interstate 81, Shenandoah Caverns, and most of Williamsville. 






Samuel Hupp, son of Casper 


     Samuel was the second son of Casper, born in the early 1770's. 

On 5/26/1796 he married Margaret Wilson (also known as Peggy).  They

started their family in Virginia, and then moved to Licking County, Ohio

about 1816.  They had a total of nine children.  

     The 1830 and 1840 censuses of Licking County list Samuel as living

in Licking Township.  But Samuel owned land in several neighboring

counties as well, notably Knox County.  Samuel's will was recorded

in the Licking County Courthouse in Newark.  The courthouse burned

in 1875, but the will was resubmitted in 1878.

be a miscopy, or it could be that Samuel was using it as in the German

Dr. Martin Hupp, son of Casper


     Martin Hupp was born on 9/22/1775, the youngest son of Casper and

Mary.  He was only six when his father died.  After his brother John

turned 21, Martin was under his guardianship.  It was during this time

that Martin received his medical training.


(The following was the first story I read concerning Hupp history)

     Martin Hupp was apprenticed to John Peter Ahl of Keezletown (east

of Harrisonburg, in Rockingham County).  Solomon Henkel was a fellow

student.  But Ahl did not live up to his obligations, and because of

trouble with his apprentices, he was put in the Rockingham County jail

in 1796.  When he was found guilty of violating his apprenticeship

contract with Martin Hupp, he disappeared from Virginia.  Ahl was found

years later, in South Carolina, as a drunk.  He died in 1827.

     The accounts of these events mention John Hupp as Martin's 

guardian, and make note that the Hupps did try to keep John P. Ahl out

of jail while seeking justice.  One source incorrectly states that John

was Martin's father (all others name him as his guardian).  

     After Martin's brother John died, Martin was awarded guardianship

of John's children, George F. and Polly.  By that time, they were in

their teens.

     Martin's practice as a doctor was in Woodstock.  He was one of the

first trustees of Massanutten Military Academy in Woodstock. 

     Martin Hupp's wife was named Clara.  I believe her maiden name was

Copp, as this couple, and several of their children were buried in the

Copp-Hupp Cemetery.  Clara bore him at least five children.  After Clara

died, Martin married Mrs. Alice Frovel on 2/26/1829.  The marriage was

shortlived- Martin died the following August 10.  That was a bad year

for that family.  Not only did Martin died then, but so did his son

Harrison and daughter Margaret Samuels.  This was the same year that

Balser and Abraham died, near New Market. 

     Alice's was born Alice M. White.  Before she married Martin Hupp,

she had been married to George Fravel, and after Martin died, she

married William Anderson. 

     An inventory of Dr. Martin Hupp's estate was made on 9/22/1829.

It was valued at $2715.07 + 8 slaves ($2000).  Martin's son George A.

Hupp was the administrator.  Sale customers included William C. Hupp,

George F. Hupp, Mary C. Hupp, Alice M. Hupp, and George A. Hupp.
